"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.


"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.



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


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.


"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.


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.

"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


“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


"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)


“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.

When will Southern Nigeria wake up from their slumbering and let the North realize that they are not so entitled to hijack all there is in Nigeria, just for themselves alone? Since the inception of the sicko of Katsina, every office worth a few million dollars in budgetary allocation has been given to a Northerner. And what does the South do, remain the timid bride waiting on the table of the arrogant mallams up North, who are growing more empowered every day?
Just few weeks ago, President Umaru Yar'Adua reorganized the federal media in Nigeria and brazenly put three Northerners to head the three organisations and this is in a country where there are so many tribes with three principal ones, two of which is based in the south. The three directors-general of the national broadcast organisations, notably the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) and the Voice Of Nigeria (VON) are all from the core North. Alhaji Abubakar Jijiwa, Director General of VON is from Adamawa State; Malam Usman Magawata, Director General of NTA is from Kebbi State and Malam Yusuf Nuhu, Director-General of the FRCN hails from Katsina State. Icheoku asks, would the North accept such disproportionate appointments from the south were the tables to suddenly turn?
This total and bullish disregard of the principle of federal character by the mallams of the North, which principle is the bond holding Nigeria together, Icheoku says is tasking the continued existence of one "Nigeria"? If there is nothing there for other component parts of Nigeria, the question remains, why continue a non-working order? Should anything happen and Nigeria is no more, blame the North for their speed-balling of Nigeria's disintegration by their unbridled self-centered indifferent attitude to other stake-holders of the Nigeria experiment.
To further add insult to injury, the Northern oligarchs are going full steam and aggrandising and gulping down what remains of the Nigerian federation. Just recently, President Umaru Yar'Adua made additional appointments, using his fellow mallams to fill the positions. The new Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Yusuf Bomoi is from Yar'Adua's home state of Katsina and new Director General of the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), Alhaji Muhammad Nadada is also from the north, Bauchi to be precise? And they are doing this without any regard to the federal character or quota-system operating principle in Nigeria. Were it JAMB or Law School or WAEC, the north, because of their learning-disability (a bunch of retards), will insist on quota system to get their fair share of the slots but when it comes to them usurping everything Nigeria, then such a proportionate system is jettisoned out the window? Who says these cattle-rearers are fools? Icheoku says, when will enough be really enough with these kola-nut chewers? Needless to mention that both the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal has both mallams as their respective heads.
It has been the same pattern since the inception of the Umaru Yar'Adua's administration and nobody appears to be perturbed, not even the Vice President Jonathan Goodluck who supposedly is representing the southern interest in the government? What will it cost him to speak out against this northern arrogation of what belongs to everybody, after-all he was elected alongside Umaru Yar'Adua and cannot be just sacked? What will it take to make these mallam realize that Nigeria is not their sole property? What is the south waiting for or is it when the north produces both the president as well as the vice president of Nigeria? From posting of ministers, ambassadors, permanent secretaries and officers of the directorate cadre in the federal service, each has been made to particularly favor a section of the country up North, and one wonders, were the reverse to be the case, would the North accept what they are forcibly shoving down the throat of Southerners?
Take a look at all the prime ministries of Defence, Finance, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Petroleum, Agriculture, Justice, Water Resources, National Planning and Natural Resources etc and tell Icheoku which of them is not commandeered by a Northerner?
Minister of Agriculture and Water Resources - Abba Sayyadi Ruma
Minister of Defence - Shettima Mustapha
Minister of Environment and Housing - Halima Alao
Minister of FCT Administration - Adamu Aliero
Minister of Justice (Attorney General) - Michael Kaase Aondokaa
Minister of Women Affairs - Saudatu Bungudu
Minister & Chairman National Planning Commission - Shamsudeen Usman
Minister & Chairman National Sports Commission - Abudlrahman Gimba
Federal Ministry of Works & Housing - Hassan M. Lawal
Federal Ministry of Police Affairs - I.Y. Lame
Ministry of Petroleum Resources - Rilwanu Lukman
Federal Ministry of Science and Technology -
A. B. Zaku
Federal Ministry of Sports and Social Development - Engr. S.M. Ndanusa
Federal Ministry of Transport - Ibrahim Bio
Icheoku would not have a problem with any Nigerian occupying any position, but in a country like Nigeria where unwilling nations are unequally yoked together, it makes better sense were things to be more equitably distributed. Also were these mallams capable and productive, nobody will raise too much of an eyebrow, but they are known failures whose stranglehold on Nigeria has kept Nigeria down all these years since her independence. It is time to speak up Southern Nigeria, or forever remain enslaved by the North who does not have the common decency or sense to discern that their crass appropriation of all the goodies in Nigeria can only mean one thing, and one thing only, a rise-up! Northern Nigeria, please put yourself in the shoes of the south and see if you can take what your dishing out to them?

Controversy Trails Appointment Of ETF Board Chairman
By Joe Nwankwo, Snr Correspondent, Abuja

There is disquiet in Aso Rock, and among stakeholders in the states, over the appointment of Musa Babayo as Education Tax Fund (ETF) Chairman.

He is Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Deputy National Chairman.

Investigation showed that his appointment is causing ripples as it disregarded due process and the principle of Federal Character.

The ETF Board Chairmanship was originally zoned to the South East but was upturned at the last minute, despite the fact that both Babayo and ETF Executive Secretary, Mahmood Yakubu, are from Bauchi State.

Aso Rock is said to be receiving complaints on a daily basis from PDP state leaders over allegations of favoritism and marginalisation of sections of the party in appointments.

The 758 slots available in federal agencies and parastatals are shared as follows: North West (145), North East (124), North Central (140), South West (123), South East (104), and South South (122).

Board Chairmanships are categorised into A, B, and C.

In category A, the North West has 12, North East (11), North Central (11), South East (eight), South South (11), and South West (10).

Th North West has 10 slots in category B, North Central (10), South East (seven), South West (eight), and South South (eight).

In category C, North West (two), South West (two), North East (one), North Central (one), South South (one), and South East (one).

The basic complaint is that Federal Character is ignored in board appointments, and the Villa has reportedly begun an initiative for a common ground for the aggrieved.
