THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED

THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED
ICHEOKU says thanks to American Bikers, the much anticipated protest in Phoenix rally-styled speech did not materialize. May be we should have more of these Bikers in every rally. Kudos to the real bad ass men with steely balls.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.
ICHEOKU says the United States of America mandate to its military engaged overseas particularly Afghanistan is stop cuddling the bad guys, just whack them. ICHEOKU says certainly a c-change in the rules of engagement and it will certainly make it easier for our warriors who will risk less of their lives and limbs in battle fields. President Donald John Trump is definitely leading as said and providing the leadership our military needs as their Commander in Chief. Way to go.

NORTH KOREA PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER
"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS MCGREGOR

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. Boxing champion Floyd MayWeather and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, will fight on August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. ICHEOKU says not in a position yet to place bet on who will win the fight. Salute


BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to of their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide in their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


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.

NIGERIA, A REQUIEM OR NUNC DIMITTIS?

Are these signs of the times or the things yet to come? Icheoku is talking about the status of Nigeria? The unity of Nigeria? To remain an entity or not? To be or not to be? Whatever finally becomes the resolution, one thing is clear - the present high agitation is very ominous! Yakubu Gowon, a former head of state of Nigeria was the first person, chorusing the Sarduana of Sokoto Ahmadu Bello refrain, to question the continued existence of Nigeria as one entity. In his famous diatribe, the Plateau State born army man, posited that there is no basis for the continued existence of Nigeria as one entity.
Odumegwu Ojukwu took up arms against the rest of Nigeria because it was his understanding that Nigerians, through their inordinate actions, no longer want the Igbos within "their" country, Nigeria. The father of the recently slain NYSC member, Pa Josiah Akande empathised that the recent mayhem in Jos poses a major threat to the touted unity of the country. According to him, the leadership of the country should re-examine the workability of the said Nigeria unity. Simon Kolawole of Thisday Newspapers commenting on the recent Jos riots, wrote, "Nigerians once again, are questioning the very essence of our union."
"There is no hope for Nigeria" was how a one time senator, Francis Spanner Okpozo who represented Delta South Senatorial District in the Senate during the General Ibrahim Babangida’s transition to civil rule programme, put it. According to the senator, there are a lot of irreconcilable fundamental differences among the various ethnic groups that make up the present Nigeria. Continuing, the senator said, the people of Nigeria are merely pretending on the unity question and unnecessarily delaying and avoiding the evil day.
The former Nigerian Petroleum Minister Tam David-West has it that a very dark cloud is gathering over Nigeria. According to the ex-minister, Nigeria has an illegitimate presidency - Yar'Adua is a legal president because the court has made him so, but the court cannot confer legitimacy on anybody. Continuing Mr. West said, "We have reached the worst; I have never seen Nigeria as corrupt as it is now, and if we don't take time, this country may not survive the next sixty years."

Now that the agitation for Nigerians to go their separate ways has gone a full circle, from the north to the west to the south to the east, Icheoku asks, what is then holding it up? Let the truth be told, none of the component constituents which make up the present Nigeria is impressed with one another - no, they resent each other and very much. They hold one another with a contemptible suspicion and will not hesitate to stick it to one another whenever the circumstance present itself. The supposed harmony and peace of the grave-yard in Nigeria is based on the existing leech-like relationship between the arid north and the richly-endowed south. The lazy parasitic north depends on the resources in the south south to survive, hence will not accede to balkanization of Nigeria because they will starve to death. But should the rest of the country be continuously held hostage by the selfish northern oligarchy? Only time will tell!
Icheoku commends the present bravery of some southerners who are now beginning to openly discourse south's discontentment with the present status-quo of things in Nigeria; and prays that it will not take up to the Tam David-West's projected sixty years before it could bear fruit. The north is singularly fuelling this flamed agitation for "separation" due to their crass arrogant usurpation of what belongs to all Nigerians. All the key parastatals and ministries of the federal government of Nigeria including the customs and excise, the supreme court, the appeal court, the EFCC, Abuja FCT, works and housing, agriculture, justice, finance, defence, national planning, petroleum, are all appropriated by the north; leading one to ask, what then is left for the rest of the country? Nothing but scraps! And who says this condition will remain tolerable and for how long in Nigeria anyway?
The northerners bleed the same blood as the southerners, so why should the south be so afraid to bleed some blood that they concede to the north all that their arrogance desires? The north are brigands who populated the military and uses it as an instrument of cohesion to keep the south in perpetual subjugation and servitude in Nigeria. Enough should be enough of this imbalance as Icheoku would rather, these mallams are stopped either through a peaceful dialogue or using whatever means necessary.
The south shouldn't be the one making all the concessions and all the time, no, things have to change and should change! How can a Fulani man from far away Katsina State be tele-guiding the resources in Bayelsa State when no Bayelsa man has ever had a voice on how the cattle in Katsina is reared? It is a complete absurdity and smacks of stupidity on the part of the south to continue to tolerate this lopsidedness in Nigeria.
Why would the south or some of their leaders be content with just receiving simple handouts from these mallams who blatantly arrogate to themselves the rights to every resources in Nigeria including the oil which is in the south? If this is not a conquered and vanquished state of siege of the south by the north, then nothing else so qualifies. It recently came to Icheoku knowledge that Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida once paid a 250,000 pounds Sterling medical bills of a sick southerner in London and you ask yourself, how much is left from where that one came from? If a panhandler asks you for a quarter and you oblige him, that leaves you with 75 cents plus whatever other money you are with. To the panhandler, he got his 25cents but he was oblivious of the depth of the pocket of his benefactor. This is gradually becoming the fate of the southerners in Nigeria and the matter gets even more maddening when it is the panhandling-south that rightfully owns the source of wealth of the benefactor-north; but is deprived of it by shere brigandage. Icheoku says, Southern Nigeria, it is time you stood up to the north and reclaim your God given natural resources and its concomitant wealth! Any other approach is simply slavish!
