PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS 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.

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.

G20 SAYS, ONE TRILLION DOLLARS TO THE RESCUE?

As the G20 wounded their world economic summit at the Excel centre in London today, April 2, 2009 there is a consensus, one trillion dollars life-line should be thrown at the sputtering world economy? Icheoku says congratulations to the twenty biggest economies for successfully concluding the summit and pray that their effort yields the desired result.
In the words of valedictory of the host, British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, "This is the day that the world came together to fight back against the global recession, not with words but with a plan for global recovery and for reform and with a clear timetable for its delivery."
The summit produced a six-point communique as well as two detailed annexes on how a tighter regulatory regime would work. They agreed to have another G20 meeting in due course to check on the progress of the conclusions reached today. The leaders did not take up the biggest point of contention, whether to boost national economic-stimulus packages. Instead, they focused on two other significant areas; the funds available to international institutions to help poor or struggling economies to withstand the crisis, and tougher global regulation of financial markets.
1. The International Monetary Fund $250 billion reserves will be tripled to enable it to better help stricken countries in the developing world - as well as others, like Mexico, who are nervous that their economy could be swept up in the global turmoil through no fault of their own.
2. The leaders also agreed to provide an additional $250 billion in guarantees for export credits and other trade finance, which have dried up in the past few months and led to a drastic drop in global commerce.
3. The other key decision concerns financial regulation and corporate behavior, under which hedge funds and other financial-market players will be subject to far greater and properly coordinated international scrutiny.
4. Big banks with activities in several countries will also be subject to greater and properly coordinated international scrutiny.
5. Tax-havens which are not complying with international standards on exchanging information will be publicly named and shamed.
6. On executive pay and compensation, the gathered world leaders accepted a series of recommendations by their finance experts that would lead to sharper oversight of compensation and bonuses and tie them more specifically to long-term performance.
Of all countries in Africa, only South Africa was deemed civilized enough and have its acts together, to be invited to the summit. The hitherto "giant", now clay-footed humpty-dumpty of Africa, Nigeria, has been relegated to the background; having been deemed incompetent, disorganised, directionless, clueless and a total disappointment to the gathered world's finest? How has the mighty of Africa fallen? Only the rudderless leadership of and in Nigeria can supply the answer? It is also instructive that Iran, North Korea and Venezuela were not invited to the summit? Israel was also a no-show; with Saudi Arabia being the only country in the Middle East to be invited to the summit.
Just a little G20 factoid:- the group of twenty (G20) represents the most important industrialised states and emerging economies of the world. They include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States of America and the European Union. The Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the President of the World Bank, plus the chairs of the International Monetary and Financial Committee and Development Committee of the IMF and World Bank, were also invited on an ex-officio basis. The G20 all together, is home to more than 60 percent of the world’s population, accounts for about 90 per cent of global gross national product and 80 per cent of the entire world trade (including EU intra-trade). Icheoku says, the G20 is by implication, is capable of independent existence devoid of the uninvited "leeches" of the world? Say it ain't so!
Left is Icheoku's most favorite picture of the London 2009 Summit; showing America's Obama, Italy's Berlusconi and Russia's Medvedev in a mood, whose time has come! Because of this picture alone, the world is today much more relaxed that an over-bloated ego somewhere will not start an inferno which it cannot easily quench?
At the end of the summit, every participant was satisfied with the resolutions reached; and in the words of Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, "People beforehand said there would be a divide, but in fact there was an overwhelming drive toward achieving real action, real commitments and real time-lines." The United States President Barack Obama when asked his take on the summit, quipped "I think we did O.K." Once again congratulations to the world's super dupers!

Regretting the non-participation of Nigeria in the ongoing Group of 20 countries (G-20) talks in London over the global financial meltdown, the President said: "I must say that today (yesterday) is a sad day for me. And I think it should be for all Nigerians, when 20 leaders of the leading countries in the world are meeting and Nigeria is not there. This is something we need to reflect upon.

"We have the population, we have the potentials, we have the ability and capacity and we have the will. What do we lack? Is it the will that we lack?"
