MADIBA, IN MEMORIAM

MADIBA, IN MEMORIAM
Icheoku says he made today's reality in South Africa possible, RIP Nelson Mandela.

GUITAR HERO, NIGERIA GUITAR PLAYING PRESIDENT.

GUITAR HERO, NIGERIA GUITAR PLAYING PRESIDENT.
Icheoku says President Bill Clinton played the saxophone; President GW Bush played and danced to the beat of African drums; President Barack Obama sang Al Green's Lets Stay Together; President Olusegun Obasanjo danced PSY's Gangnam Style; and even Madam Secretary of State Albright danced to Macarena and the other Madam Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also danced some South African tunes too. Now President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria just strung the guitar. Icheoku says whats up with all these presidents showing us the lighter side of themselves and displaying inert talents which duties of the state had somehow made redundant. Icheoku says the world especially Nigerians can use the million Naira smile on their President Jonathan; a country almost over-heating from stress of every kind can sure find some uplifting from their smiley president. Icheoku says GOOD for the country.

VLADIMIR AND LYUDMILA, NO LONGER AN ITEM!

VLADIMIR AND LYUDMILA, NO LONGER AN ITEM!
Icheoku says what mother Russia had put together, unbridled licentiousness and loneliness has put asunder; and so it is that the fabled strong man of Russia became a weakling on the home front and was not man enough to do what it takes to keep his home safe and secured. Russia's President Vladimir and First Lady Lyudmila Putin's marriage have gone with the wind; its center did not hold as cravings for younger skirts by Vladimir have driven the older love interest over the cliff and she had to walk away. Icheoku says yet another evidence that marriage does not work, never worked and will never work except for those who live in denial and put a facade of happily ever after. Icheoku says to Vladimir and Lyudmila, happy trails.

OBASANJO, DESERVES TO BE CAGED - YAKASSI.

OBASANJO, DESERVES TO BE CAGED - YAKASSI.
"Whenever Obasanjo disagrees with a person, he will carry the fight to his place of worship, to his dining table and sometimes, he will even be fighting the person in his dream. He is unforgiving and his method of disagreement with people is sometimes a matter of life and death." - Tanko Yakassi; reacting to the recent outburst of Obasanjo in Dutse castigating President Jonathan for keeping him in the dog's house and away from calling the shots in Aso Rock. Icheoku adds, may be it is about time the Otta deity is arrested and tried for his numerous misdeeds during his presidency including the Halliburton scandal. Further, Obasanjo's membership of the PDP should be suspended since he is now more of a problem than a solution to the wellness of the party; which has increasingly become more apparent since he lost his third term bid to cling to power. But only if Icheoku were Jonathan and Jonathan were Icheoku?

ORAL SEX IS DANGEROUS, WARNS MICHAEL DOUGLAS?

ORAL SEX IS DANGEROUS, WARNS MICHAEL DOUGLAS?
Icheoku says the Surgeon General Michael Douglas has warned men to beware, pause and ponder before going downtown on their women. He spoke from experience having nearly died from throat cancer which he claimed resulted from his giving too much head to his women. Icheoku wonders which of his women gave him the cutties.

BOSTON MARATHON BOMBERS, HEADED TO NEW YORK.

"We don't know if we would have been able to stop the terrorists had they arrived here from Boston. We're just thankful that we didn't have to find out that answer." - Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York speaking on the Divine providence that stopped Boston Marathon bombers cold and prevented them from getting to New York to prosecute their terrorism act.

Icheoku says well put together Mayor and in a case where lack of desired answer was a preferred option.

However no one seems to acknowledge the hijacked guy, without whose cruel fate, those Boston Marathon bombers might still be on the run. Imagine a scenario where Boston operatives would have been looking for their suspects - "the dark-skinned" terrorists, while the real "fair-skinned" terrorists would be miles away in New York causing another mayhem. Thankfully a bad incident of a vehicle hijack led to the solving of such a heinous crime of no mean magnitude. As far as Icheoku is concerned, this guy is the real hero and deserves all the credits for solving the Boston Marathon crime and should get any and all available rewards thereto.

Also thanks to the technology of the IPhone and Mercedes' imbeded tracking devices which triangulated and honed operatives to the mad men of Russia from Dagestan Chechyna. The rest as they say, is now history and one lived in real time.

ORJI KALU SHOWS THE WAY FORWARD FOR THE IGBO

“We are embarked on a big and noble dream borne out of the necessities of our history and the imperatives of our justice, equity and fair play. While our history is a proud, large, and significant imprint in Nigeria, the reality of our contemporary existence has been rendered small by the politics of the Nigerian republic. This time calls for self-assertion and Igbo people must rise and answer the challenges with one voice." - Orji Uzor Kalu, speaking on the imperativeness of a united Igbo front to take on the Nigeria project. Icheoku agrees intoto; has said it before and again says it that in Orji Uzor Kalu lies the destiny of Igbo people of Nigeria in the Nigeria project. Igbo people must put aside their base restiveness and political disfunctionalities and follow the leadership being provided by this accomplished son of Igboland, the only Igbo man who other stakeholders of Nigeria from other tribes and zones truly respect and listen to. Peradventure this Orji Uzor Kalu's opportunity to lead the Igbos out of their political doldrums and into the promised land would be lost; but Icheoku strongly counsels against that as such golden opportunity rarely strikes twice. Icheoku loves the courage of Orji Uzor Kalu and prays he succeeds with the "Njiko Igbo" project whether in 2015 or any other future time.

CHINUA ACHEBE DEAD AT 82, ADIEU.

CHINUA ACHEBE DEAD AT 82, ADIEU.
Icheoku mourns a true son of the land who happened on the stage when Nigeria was not prepared for his kind. Regrettably the world reknowned scholar died frustrated at the rot that is Nigeria and the unwillingness of the ruling elite to fix the broken. Icheoku says sleep well Chinua and may the Almighty reward you for at least trying by speaking up against the decadence. His internment is scheduled for May 23, 2013 at Ogidi Anambra State Nigeria. Icheoku says so long Chinualumogu.

QUOTE ON THE MARBLE.

"I know you have'nt been in a position to actually execute foreign policy, but every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong." - President Barack Hussein Obama counselling Mitt Romney.

MEDICORITY IS KILLING NIGERIA - CHINUA ACHEBE

"What has consistently escaped most Nigerians in this entire travesty is the fact that mediocrity destroys the very fabric of a country as surely as a war – ushering in all sorts of banality, ineptitude, corruption and debauchery. Nations enshrine mediocrity as their modus operandi, and create the fertile ground for the rise of tyrants and other base elements of the society, by silently assenting to the dismantling of systems of excellence because they do not immediately benefit one specific ethnic, racial, political, or special-interest group. That, in my humble opinion, is precisely where Nigeria finds itself today." - Professor Chinua Achebe, an excerpt from his latest literary work "There was a country." Icheoku adds, this is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth; and anyone who does not like to hear the truth about the real and true situation on the ground in Nigeria should just jump off the bridge or like Zimbabwe's strongman Robert Mugabe would put it, go hang.

ONLY THE POOR WISH THEY HAD STUFF?

“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

A GOOD MAN IS A GOOD MAN - MADONNA

"I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim - though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is - nor should anyone else in America." - MADONNA, the material girl explaining her reference to President Barack Obama as a "black Muslim?"

ABATI'S ODE TO JONATHAN, A RESPONSE.

"Yes, great minds like Abraham Lincoln, Mahtama Ghandi, Martin Luther King and Kwame Nkrumah made the world easier. Yet whatever they achieved was with plainness of approach, honesty and integrity. They were not attained with dourness and stupidity. They came out of a vibrant methodology and pragmatic visions. Jonathan lacks these qualities. Comparing the man Jonathan to these great minds is illusory and vain." - Dr Olusegun Fakoya

PUTIN, REHABILITATE YOURSELF


SACRIFICE IS THE KEY.

The safest place for the ship is the harbor but the ship is not made for the harbor; therefore to succeed, you must venture out of your comfort zone and mightily sacrifice.

OBAMA ON CHANGE

"You don't have to hide who you love to serve the country you love - military's don't ask, don't tell, is over. That is what the promised change is all about and we delivered." Icheoku says, just the truth Mr President and four more years to "That One" who really gets it.

NAGGING KILLS, COMMUNICATION SAVES !

Study has established that nagging is the shortest and surest route traveled to bring a marriage to a crashing end. It is even considered deadlier than infidelity and adultery put together; so couples you now know - if you want to end it asap, just let that trap of yours run afoul without ceasing. On the positive side, couples who render each other their ears enjoy marital bliss using the Faiss principles of "give and take and compromise" as their guiding light. So chose today how you want your union to go and then do what needs to be done to get there.

HIV/AIDS ALERT !

Beware, thirty four (34) million people live with HIV/AIDS world world; SCARY?


THANK GOD WE DO NOT LIVE THERE, IRAN AND SAUDI ARABIA.

Do you know that ADULTERY is a death-penalty offense in Iran and that APOSTASY is also a death-penalty offense in Saudi Arabia? Be thankful for your freedom, those of you who are not confined in both enclaves, especially the Elliot Spitzers and Arnold Schwarzeneggers of this world; and should we add former President Clinton, except that those mullahs do not consider polishing the knob sexual enough to qualify as adulterous.

A WORD MADE FOR NIGERIA GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS?

"What's the point of being in the government if you don't try to make things better, which means trying to change things." - Richard Holbrooke, speaking as it would seem to Nigerian government officials who usually go into government only to enrich themselves and not make things better for the people, period!

THE PROBLEM OF IGBO PEOPLE, IDENTIFIED!

"Listen when the song of the frog resounds from the marshes. Listen to what they have to say. It is good to come together. It is good to reach agreement. It is good to make the voices of many the single voice of all." - HRH Justice Eze Ozobu, citing the Battle of Herero as reference point to finding solution to Igbo peoples' problem of intractable dysfunctionalism.

His Royal Highness was analogizing the problems of rudderless adriftness, lack of a collective pursuit and single purposefulness as well as the absence of one identifiable leadership and/or spokesperson which are afflicting the Igbo people of Nigeria. According to this retired jurist and now traditional ruler of Owa Imezi community, Ezeagu Local Government Area of Enugu State, Nigeria, for the Igbo nation to make any meaningful and serious political headway in Nigeria, they MUST first learn to become and fight their cause as an indivisible army of one. They must end being a motley of disorganized, noisy and often ignored mob-like people, each with his or her divergent, incoherent idea and agenda on how to move the process forward. Icheoku says with this pointy truth, this jurist has identified the single cause of Igbo peoples' problem and thus earned a place in the annals of Igbo history for pointing the light on the way forward for the Igbo nation. It is now left for the Igbo people to imbibe this message, a gospel truth. and learn to articulate and marshal their viewpoints as one indivisible and fully harmonized entity!

ENUGU STATE GOVERNOR TAKES A SECOND WIFE?

Irrespective of whatever happened to his marriage to wife number one, the governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime has taken a second wife, now wife number two, former Miss Clara Chibuzo Igwe. Icheoku says congratulations and hopes that the governor finds in her whatever was elusive in wife number one! Icheoku also hopes that wife number one, Ify (Nee Ochu) Chime and mother of his five children of three boys and two girls was properly provided for; after the over seventeen years they were together trying to build each other up. Men must always be men but all that glitters is not always gold!

Is not interesting that after barely 5yrs, what was deemed "sweet" is now being seen as "slavery". Meanwhile the woman who laboured with this governor, had 5 kids for him must have been tagged devil at the initial time of this new found love! History keeps repeating itself because human beings have failed to learn from history. Please my Godly advice to the governor is to kindly retrace his steps, look for the wife of his youth, and reconcile with her and amend all the damages that have already been done. God is a God of second chance. Indeed all that glitters is not gold. God bless you.
