"Over the years, Buhari name has come to be erroneously associated with discipline, transparency and accountability. This reputation, as we all know, is based on propaganda. As head of the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF), Buhari, not only sanctioned and approved an arrangement which gave the Management of all the Agency projects (worth billions of naira) to only one consulting firm, made up of only Northerners, including the late Salihijo and loquacious Nasir el-Rufai. What came out of the billions? Where are the projects?" - Udumebraye


"To deprive a people of volition in their own political direction is to turn a nation into a colony of slaves. Buhari enslaved the nation. He gloated and gloried in a master-slave relation to the millions of its inhabitants. It is astonishing to find that the same former slaves, now free of their chains, should clamour to be ruled by one who not only turned their nation into a slave plantation, but forbade them any discussion of their condition." - Professor Wole Soyinka.

Icheoku agrees that there is something certainly, patently and endemically wrong with Nigerians in the manner they react to most things in their lives? Icheoku emphasizes that the very fact that this murderer, Muhammadu Buhari, is getting any serious attention whatsoever to preside over Nigerians again, defies every sensibility and logic. That this adoration is coming, especially from those Nigerians old enough to have lived through the experiences that was his infra-dig happenstance upon the Nigerian stage, makes the matter more hair-raising and utter sordid. A situation made worse because he went up against the same democracy that he is now trying to profit from; and some of these marabout-politicians now clamoring for him were at the receiving end of his melancholic and choleric despotism.

Icheoku says so it is not without reason that some school of thought heavily weigh towards agreeing that the neurons in many a Nigerian brain is out of sync and firing wrongly? Icheoku says it is as perfidious as it is self-lynching for Nigerians to be holding this very same Muhammadu Buhari in such a high pedestal, despite the not too long ago history of his callousness and inhumanity to Nigerians. Indeed it is regrettable and smacks of a people with little regards for their self worth and self esteem; and who could in the situation equally pass for a bunch of sadistic vermins. Icheoku queries, Buhari of all persons?


"Stooping down for a dwarf does not make one less taller" - Professor Cyprian Okonkwo: The ordinary person test - Timbu Kolian V. The Queen 1968 119 CLR 147. Icheoku says if only people could apply knowledge to their daily dealings with others and not be too self-absorbed to think it is going to be always their way or the high way.


“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.


"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


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


"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!


Viewer's discretion advised. Take a gory look at the untold barbarism of Hausa-Fulani Islamists of Northern Nigeria as they unleash their blood-letting mayhem as Christian minorities of Jos, Plateau State, of same Northern Nigeria. When it suits their political dictates, they claim one Northern Nigeria; and later turn around and kill innocent women and children of the same Northern Nigeria. Now step into human brutality of fellow humans; except the Hausa/Fulani do not see these people or any other people other than themselves as people. These other people they regard as subhumans - "arunas" (unbelievers) not fit for co-existence with them. Now, the goriness begins, click:-

Any avid watcher of the Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) will like the swagger of Umaga, the Samoan Bulldozer! Unfortunately, the heavily tattooed 6'4, 350-lb. giant from Samoa is no more, he died of massive coronary embolism aka heart attack at Northwest Medical Center, a Houston Texas hospital on Friday, December 4, 2009. 'Umaga' whose real name is Eki Eddie Fatu was 36 years old.
'Umaga' was a member of the large Anoa’i and Fatu wrestling family of Samoa, who have influenced the business for several generations; a family which includes his cousin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who later left wrestling for Hollywood fame and has several movies to his credit.
Umaga was released from his WWE contract on June 8 2009 after he refused to go into rehabilitation following a second violation of the WWE’s no-drugs policy; in other words, he was a user which could have precipitated his heart condition leading his eventual death. His last known engagement was in Australia where he had gone as part of the “Hulkamania Tour” in Australia; an independent wrestling tour; only to return and suffer a heart attack and died as a result. His wife found him on Thursday night not breathing, with blood coming out of his nose and rushed him to the hospital but never made it out alive.
His death adds impetus to carry through President Barack Obama's health care reform so that many Americans and residents alike can have access to medical care. Umaga was part of the 33 million people in America without a health insurance which he can afford; and as a result only got to see a doctor when it was already too late! If only he had been to check-ups, may be he will still be alive to continue to provide the world of wrestling lovers some entertainment. Umaga now joins other recently departed WWE wrestlers including Canadian pro-wrestler Andrew Test Martin, Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero. Icheoku prays his massive soul rest in peace!
