"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

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.

The Almighty Lord said, 'touch not my anointed one' and as things stands today in Nigeria, Acting President Jonathan Goodluck might for all intent and purpose pass for that 'anointed one!' It is an acceptable act of faith that all powers belong to God and that he chooses whom he wants to make king or president! Icheoku says, Jonathan's meteoric rise to power within such a short time and without paying excessive dues to get there, is a clear indication that some divinity is closely at work in matters that appertains to him.
Now some sad stories out of Abuja has it that some evil men are hatching their evil-plot to get him out of their way? But by the special grace of the living God whom many of us serve, and who, before Jonathan was even born, knew that he is going to one day become the Acting President of Nigeria, will not let evil triumph and these evil men can never succeed or have their way. Icheoku affirms that it shall not be well with these evil plotters.
We want to believe that this story has no merit whatsoever, but we must be watchful and vigilant since all smokes usually have associated fire somewhere. According to sources, one of the conspirators was caught on tape threatening that 'they will deal with the acting president' for daring to step in their way and stop them from massively looting Nigeria through unscrupulous allocation of oil wells. In an alleged intercepted/surreptitiously recorded statement, the voice at the other end and a co-conspirator was heard saying, "We have to deal with him; we have to kill him"? Icheoku says, and these people are plotting against the head of state and acting president of Nigeria? What an utter madness; this allegation is so very grave indeed that the government need to immediately tell Nigerians what they have so far uncovered; in addition to a full disclosure of the identities of the conspirators, especially the man who owns the voice on the record? This full disclosure will help Nigerians see and know those people that do not mean well for the country. Let us pray that it is not also a set-up to get rid of some people, clear them out of the way and let the new party begin; without fear of any insider and possible a Yar'Adua's spy taking notes for onward transmission to Turai in Jeddah? Also let us hope it is just a cruel joke, otherwise; assuming it were it to succeed, it will be the quickest way to yield the core of Nigeria resulting in the final, total and complete disintegration of the country known as Nigeria! But the good Lord will not let these few disgruntled individuals have their way, as Nigeria marches on to provide the necessary leadership the West African sub-region yearns for and in their own democratic environment where things are settled politically.
Icheoku condemns this plot as evil, devious and capable of causing great mischief throughout the land; destroying whatever is left of the last fabrics of mother Nigeria; hence every person of every persuasion who still desires one strong Nigeria should put his/her hands on deck to help Jonathan succeed. Let Nigerians not allow this distraction take more of the present regime's time in office so that Acting President Jonathan Goodluck can concentrate on his job, which needs a lot of catching up to do. Nigerians should pray that these anti-Nigeria conspirators who want to do harm to the acting president are quickly identified, rounded up and finished off. What they allegedly did is treason and commands the death penalty; so Jonathan, bare your fangs and bring these people in for immediate justice. Please do not be intimidated by these cowardly threats and just carry on governing.
Also remember that now is the time to reconstitute your cabinet for new fresh ideas to come in and in order to disrupt these conspirators and deny them both access and reach. Your constituency in Bayelsa State supports you! Niger Delta supports you! South-South supports you! Southern Nigeria supports you as well as the Nigeria state. So, an attack on Jonathan is an attack on all Nigerians, who their National Assembly voted to authorise Jonathan's new acting capacity. Such a northern Nigerian-perfected subversion of governance will not be tolerated ever again in Nigeria; and this sitting acting president might be the tinder of the mother of all fires which will finally consume Nigeria should the unexpected happen! ENOUGH of this pretence by the north that they have the 'exclusive right to ferment violence,' because they don't and they should be mindful that their veins also contain blood. The north must realise that this is 2010 and that things have since dramatically changed; the days of fear of them and intimidation caused by them is since over. It is a new day in Nigeria as a Ph.D, humble, God-fearing Christian is in the saddle of Nigeria's leadership. Let us pray that Jonathan Goodluck succeeds!

Fresh plot to kill Jonathan uncovered •2 ministers, 2 ex-govs implicated •Misguided elements want to pull me down - Acting President

Written by Taiwo Adisa and Okey Muogbo, Abuja

THE Federal Government, on Wednesday, uncovered a plot against Acting President Goodluck Jonathan by some elements said to be aggrieved about his emergence.
The office of the Acting President has confirmed that there is, indeed, a plot to discredit the acting president and pull down his administration.

Besides the anger in some quarters over his emergence, some forces were also said to be aggrieved about the decision of the acting president to cancel the proposed sale of oil wells, in another oil bid round that would have empowered some key figures in the polity.

Sources in Abuja told the Nigerian Tribune that some top security operatives had uncovered a plot by a group said to be “utterly disturbed and bitter” by the acting president’s resolve to cancel the oil bid round.

The bidding was to take place last week, but the acting president stopped it.

Sources said that some of those who lost out in the bidding round were already being investigated to know their involvement in the alleged plot.

A source said that some of those who lost out in the planned oil well deal included two former governors, who had planned to take one oil well each, two ministers and a presidential aide, who is said to be interested in three oil wells and fronting for three foreign interests: a Taiwanese, a Chinese and a Middle East company.

It was gathered that some highly connected persons had concluded arrangements to ensure that certain persons grab some lucrative oil wells through the bid round and that those who had already targeted some wells were bitter that Dr. Jonathan cancelled the bid.

Sources said that a group working in and outside the government met on Monday night at a location in Abuja and resolved to deal with the acting president for “daring to cancel the oil bid round.”

It was gathered that a tape recording of the discussions at the said meeting was already in possession of the government, which is already investigating those linked to the plot.

Sources said that the discussion at the said meeting dwelt on the anger of the group and the ways by which it planned to deal with the acting president.

One of those involved in the meeting was said to have said in exasperation: “We have to deal with him; we have to kill him.”

It was gathered that one of the decisions was to deliberately distort information about the emerging administration of the acting president in a way that would portray him as a spendthrift and an administrator who was eager to loot the treasury.

A source said that the group plotting against the acting president had been linked with unfounded allegations that the acting president had spent N300 billion since November 23, 2009, when President Yar’Adua travelled out of Nigeria for medical treatment.

A source said that the group had also been spreading rumours that the lawmakers, who facilitated the passage of the motion that empowered the vice-president as acting president, were financially mobilised.

“We have watched these people and we have to allow the operatives to do their work. They are responsible for the lot of distortions in the land. Whereas the information we have is that those opposed to the emergence of the acting president were mounting pressures on senators not to budge and were making promises of huge financial rewards, they want to turn the information around and turn things on their heads.

“The government cannot go to sleep over this,” a source said on Wednesday.

‘Misguided elements want to pull me down’
The office of the acting president, Dr. Jonathan, has alerted the nation to a grand plan by some people to pull his government down.

In a statement, on Wednesday, the spokesman of the acting president, Mr. Ima Niboro, said the enemies of Jonathan had voted billions of naira to fight the acting president.

The statement entitled “of N300 Billion and other absurd tales!”, read: “Today, the first instalment of the planned and well coordinated media onslaught against the Acting President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, was published in a national newspaper” [not the Nigerian Tribune], “alleging that he (the Acting President) approved the expenditure of a whopping N300 billion, for both pro-Yar'Adua rallies and those that were in his interest.” The report also claimed that members of the National Assembly were bribed to do their patriotic duty to save the nation from drift.

“It can be recalled that a few days ago, there was an allegation of a purported release of two billion US dollars from the Excess Crude Account to governors to facilitate their endorsement of Jonathan as Acting President.

“While we commend the Chairman of the Governor’s Forum, Dr. Bukola Saraki, for dealing satisfactorily with that allegation in a rejoinder, it is interesting to note that two billion dollars translate to roughly N300 billion. There is, therefore, no question that both allegations emanate from the same source.

“We know those behind these publications. Nigerians have come to know them as careerists in power. But we see them as misguided elements determined to exceed their call of duty and play God over the affairs of the Nation.

“They are wicked and ungodly and their time is up! Never, again, must we allow our nation to be strangulated by a privileged few who will rather fiddle with our common wealth while the nation burns.

“We are aware that they have set aside a huge war chest in billions of naira to bring the Jonathan Acting Presidency to disrepute by any means possible. It is, therefore, hardly surprising that as cunny as these allegations obviously sound, they still get mention in our media space. We are fully on the tracks of this so-called group; this unfortunate band of liars. In the fullness of time, they shall be brought to book.

“We find no need to dignify the N300 billion allegation with a response. What is more, those selling this lie are careful to state that the money was procured from a certain businessman, who is to be settled in a matter of weeks by “a huge oil contract.”

“Three hundred billion naira sourced from one man at a go? We demand to know who this businessman is. Anyone that keeps liquid cash of N2 billion dollars to bribe people belongs only in jail! Huge oil contract? Maybe Nigerians need to ask those who have been involved in handing out such contracts how such quid pro quo deals are done.

“Let me use this medium to reiterate that we shall not be deterred by campaigns of calumny or any other method whatsoever in our collective efforts to reform this nation, and change our ways of doing things once and for all. The acting president is determined, and he is counting on the total support of all Nigerians”, the statement concluded.
