MEGHAN UPGRADES HER STATUS: NOW A ROYALTY.

ICHEOKU says congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Princess Meghan. All the best.


OBSTRUCTION 101: THE VERDICT.

“The only obstruction President Trump committed was in obstructing Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton from the White House.” - Jesse Watters, Watters World.


AMERICAN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM OPENS.

"If you have a problem with Jerusalem being the capital of Israel, take it up with God, he did this.” - Lindsey Graham, Senator, South Carolina. Leader Congressional delegation to Jerusalem for the opening ceremony of relocated new United States of America embassy.


ICHEOKU says well said Senator as the people attacking the decision are simply questioning God and nobody does that. ICHEOKU says congratulations to the Jewish State of Israel as your eternal capital has finally been recognized with the embassy relocation. The rest of the world will soon follow or remain in affliction for going up against God's own chosen people; but will soon be forced to chose on whose side they are on.


TRUMP MEETS KIM: MOTHER OF ALL SUMMITS HOLDS.


"The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!" - President Donald John Trump.


ICHEOKU says with those words President Donald John Trump cements the upcoming face to face meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jung Un and it is in Singapore on June 12th, 2018. ICHEOKU wishes both men a fruitful deliberations which as President Donald John Trump said, will be geared towards fostering world peace. God speed fellas.


AMERICA WELCOMES BACK HER CITIZENS.

ICHEOKU says thanks to President Donald John Trump's deft diplomatic policy, being executed by Secretary of State Pompeo, three former hostages of the North Korean dictatorships were released and have now arrived back to America. ICHEOKU says welcome back home fellas. What a diplomatic coup the president and his team pulled off. Nice.


92 YEAR OLD WINS ELECTION: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says at 92 years old former Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has won his come back bid election and will be the next Malaysian Prime Minister after previously serving his country for 22 years. ICHEOKU says that now makes him the oldest serving head of government anywhere in the world, ever. ICHEOKU wishes him well and wonders what message the Malaysian people sent with the election and what will happen to the country when mortality eventually sets in. At 92 years, the seat of government in Kuala Lumpur must have a standby air ambulance on a 24 hour alert. Congratulations Mahathir.


PRESIDENT TRUMP: THE PROMISE KEEPER

“The United States no longer makes empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them.” - President Donald John Trump.

ICHEOKU says exactly why he is now fondly nicknamed the Promise Keeper and he keeps his promises, one promise at a time.

NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL IS UNACCEPTABLE.

America will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail. We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. And we will not allow a regime that chants “Death to America” to gain access to the most deadly weapons on Earth." - President Donald John Trump.


New York ATTORNEY GENERAL RESIGNS

ICHEOKU says he was leading the anti Trump attack dogs in New York State and now he has been taken down by the Me-Too felines. New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, was forced to resign his office today, after four women came forward to accuse him of sexually molesting them, harassing them and even roughing them up during non consensual sexual encounters. He claimed that he loves kinky and rough sex and that everything he did with those women were consensual. ICHEOKU says our Lord Jesus Christ was indeed right that he who lives in a glass house should not throw stones. But the New York hypocrite failed to first remove the log in his eyes before pointing his little finger at the spec in PDJT’s eye. "Ochu nwa okuko nwe ada." The harder they come, the harder they fall as every weapon fashioned against the God anointed peoples President Donald John Trump are bound to fall and Eric Schneiderman just found out. Adios.


AG JEFF SESSIONS: WHAT DO THEY HAVE ON HIM?

ICHEOKU says what does the Deep State have on AG Jeff Sessions that has purchased his quiet and inaction over the excesses of the Russian Collusion witch hunt? Something definitely does not look right and apparently seems awry that the Attorney General appears so constricted to do anything to bring the never ending "investigation" to a conclusion. How much longer will the American people wait to have the matter concluded and what will it take. As a member of Team MAGA, from the basket of deplorables, who defended him when the president was threatening to fire him, ICHEOKU is not particularly satisfied with the "playing it safe" attitude which Jeff has adopted thus far and urge him to find any possible way to make the investigators finish their job immediately and without any further delay.


TONY ELUMELU: LETS MAKE HIM PRESIDENT.

ICHEOKU says he has all it takes to turn Nigeria around and Make Nigeria Great Again. He is highly cerebral; he is well traveled and is highly exposed internationally; he is a doer with a can-do spirit and attitude which translates to impossible is nothing as it does not exists in his dictionary; he is fully accomplished person who turned around the nearly moribund behemoth UBA and created thousands of jobs both in Nigeria and overseas; and above all, he is youthful and has age on his side and you ask yourself, what else is anyone looking for in a leader for Nigeria that is on bended knees and begging for leadership other than a man with his proven record. If he can do this in the private sector, he can also mission accomplish such in the public sector and resuscitate a Nigeria that is in distress. CHEOKU is emphatic that Tony Elumelu is a highly qualified, fit and proper person to lead Nigeria out of its present woods of near comatose and under performing achievements. Lets go to work Nigerians and make his candidature both viable and achievable. We can do this fellas; so lets urge Tony to run, run Tony run and together lets Make Nigeria Great Again. If Trump can do it, so can Tony.


DJ AVICII SLASHED HIS WRISTS AND NECK.

DJ AVICII SLASHED HIS WRISTS AND NECK

ICHEOKU says another cry for help that went unanswered and the world is left without one of its foremost disc jockeys. DJ Avicii sliced his wrists and neck with broken glass and bled to death. May his soul now rest.

THE PRINCE IS NAMED, HURRAY!

CHEOKU says Kensington Palace has announced the name of their new addition, the third child and second son born to Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton. His name is Louis Arthur Charles and will be known and addressed as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge. ICHEOKU says congratulations Louis.

SAY NO TO GROUP THINK: YOU ARE NOT A HERD.

SAY NO TO GROUP THINK: YOU ARE NOT A HERD !
ICHEOKU says free thinking is part of the individuality in all of us; so protect your freedom of thought, say no to the leftist attempt to shame you into falling in line. ICHEOKU says is a fiercely independent thinker and not afraid to go it alone. Thanks Kanye!

KANYE WEST WALKS AWAY FROM GROUP THINK.

KANYE WEST STRIKES OUT FROM GROUP THINK PACK MENTALITY.


"Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed." - Kanye West.


ICHEOKU says completely agrees that the Kenyan did nothing for black people; not only those in Chicago, but also those in motherland Africa, those in West Indies/Caribbean and those in America. His presidency might as well have not happened as folks did not in anyway feel his impact. So, Yeezy was right, former President Barack Hussein Obama was not black folks friendly and he did not do a thing to change things for folks.


THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY HAS A NEW ADDITION.

THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY HAS A NEW ADDITION

ICHEOKU says another bundle of joy has been added to the British Royal Family, as Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed their third child, a son. ICHEOKU says congratulations fellas.


BARBARA BUSH SAYS HER GOODBYE: ADIEU

BARBARA BUSH SAYS HER GOODBYE: ADIEU
ICHEOKU says she was a mother to every American; a matron indeed. Adieu silver haired lady, rest in peace. So long.

AMERICA AND RUSSIA ENTENTE: WHEN?

ICHEOKU says what a beautiful world this would be, the day America and Russia will finally bury the hatchet and become friends, real true friends, that is. Imagine all the common problems confronting the world which such armistice could help resolve, problems solved. From hunger to science to wars to terrorism to all sorts of things which solution has eluded the world for so long suddenly becoming solved. And instead of spending billions of dollars building up weapons against each other, they could re-direct their investment priorities to things that could help make the world a better place.


But unfortunately, the military/industrial complex which only benefits and thrives in a world of chaos and confusion, will have none of that. They have weapons to sell to remain in business and a lot of them too; and so to do this, there has to be threats of imminent danger and turmoil from an identifiable enemy. For the West, Russia is always the bogeyman; and for the East, America is always the Great Satan which must be guarded against. So until such a time that reason eventually prevails, the world will always periodically be pushed to the brinks, near the edge, by greedy arms dealers, merchants and contractors whose voracious appetite for more money must constantly be fed. Yes, indeed, the beast has to be fed; hence the never ending and often near cataclysmic nightmarish scenarios which always jolts the world every now and then; engendered by these folks instigating conflict between the two countries. May wisdom someday prevail.


SYRIA WARNED TO DESIST OR BE BOMBED AGAIN.

"If the Syria regime uses this poisonous gas again on its people, it will be bombed again. The United States of America is locked and loaded. When our president draws a redline, our president enforces the redline." - Nikki Haley, United States of America Ambassador to the United Nations.


VLADIMIR PUTIN: WHENEVER HE IS READY!

VLADIMIR PUTIN: WHENEVER HE IS READY!

ICHEOKU says Russia's Vladimir Putin has one good opportunity to finally move back into the comity of civilized nations and stop his despotic mentality which always sees him flocking amidst his fellow dictators. But if he choses to remain in the cold and remain in Kremlin where he has been holed in since 1999, too bad. His too long stay in power is only damaging Russia but not helping it; and gradually turning Russia into a third world country where only one man dictates what goes on in the country. Putin, change your ways; let true democracy reign in Russia. Salute

WINNIE MADIKIZELA MANDELA: MAMA AFRICA IS GONE, ADIEU !

ICHEOKU says she truly lived and a selfless worthy life in the service of humanity that was. Winnie Madikizela Mandela was 81 years old and died of old age related infirmities. So long Mama Africa.


JOHN BOLTON: THE NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER.

JOHN BOLTON: THE NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER.

ICHEOKU says you cannot get a more American American and he is a hardcore America First nationalist as they come. President Donald John Trump's pick to succeeded fired National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is the real deal. He is a hard-nosed American First apologist, who does not shy away from projecting America's power through strength and who is not afraid to have America go it alone if need be. ICHEOKU says hopefully the president has found the very person who will help him achieve and implement his policy objectives in John Bolton. But as far as MAGA and AF agendas are concerned, Ambassador John Bolton is one heck of a good pick and a right fit for the job. He will help President Donald John Trump with doing his job for the American people. ICHEOKU says congratulations to the Mustachioed One. Let the governance of MAGA now really begin.


A FACEBOOK CENSORED WORLD: LIMITING FREE SPEECH

A FACEBOOK CENSORED WORLD: LIMITING FREE SPEECH

ICHEOKU says they pretend to be guardians of free speech but wants to tele-guide other peoples thinking by limiting what they can freely say; especially if you are a conservative and holds opinions which are favorable of President Donald John Trump and critical of Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately, they will not succeed but can only force people to opt out of the live wasting exercise of gluing one's eyeballs to the platform. An exercise which does not add anything of value to users, nor pays them anything for helping them bring more eyeballs to the portal. Instead of being grateful that people are helping them bilk advertisers of billions of dollars with their riveted eyeballs, they now want to micromanage everyone's thought as if they are doing one a favor by letting them waste their time using Facebook. ICHEOKU says will not be cowered nor intimidated; they can block ICHEOKU all the heck they want but ICHEOKU will not bow to Facebook's attempt to control ICHEOKU's thoughts and would rather permanently part ways with the Mark Zuckerberg globalist weapon of mass control than kowtow to a group thinking. To hell with this attempt to exact undue control and turn everyone into a herd mind.


ANDREW MCCABE: FIRED.

ANDREW MCCABE: FIRED!

ICHEOKU says he was among the conspirators against the election of President Donald John Trump and continuing sabotage of his presidency. As Deputy Director of the FBI, he authorized the release of information to the media against all best practices of the bureau. He also withheld incriminating information against Hillary Clinton during the email saga and did not disclose that the FBI has computer files recovered from Anthony Weiner. Now with less than 36 hours to a full retirement pension, he has been booted out and can no longer draw the benefits. The time to clean the house of the Federal Bureau of Investigation seems to have begun. What a lesson on how not to be a biased deputy director of the FBI as actions have consequences; and now he will have to live with the consequences of his action.

THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION: DEALT A FATAL BLOW.


"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is also no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election." - Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General of the United States of America.

ICHEOKU says this determination, for every intent and purpose, now lays to rest the "Collusion with the Russians" hogwash; as nobody can be guilty of an offense which requires awareness to ground when he or she is not aware of it. Collusion is a conspiracy and requires a proactive participation coupled with a guilty knowledge to bring about the purpose of the conspiracy. Therefore, when will the Special Counsel address the nation and tell Americans that there is no there, there, in the Russian Collusion investigation and save America further bleeding both in resources, time and unity. Enough of the sore loser antics of the Democratic Party which does not know how to take a loss and learn to work to fix what went wrong, instead of continuously pointing a finger at a mirage that is the Russian Collusion, in its bid to find something to blame for its ineptitude that led to the epochal loss of November 8th, 2016.

FBI MEMO SCANDAL: OBAMA WAS IN THE LOOP


"POTUS WANTS TO KNOW EVERYTHING WE ARE DOING." - Lisa Page to boyfriend Peter Strzok, two FBI officials.


ICHEOKU says the POTUS then was President Barack Hussein Obama, who had previously denied and lied to the American people that he does not dabble into any FBI's investigative matter. Really?


AMERICA IS HERE TO STAY - PDJT

AMERICA IS HERE TO STAY - PDJT

"Americans fill the world with art and music. They push the bounds of science and discovery. And they forever remind us of what we should never ever forget: The people dreamed this country. The people built this country. And it's the people who are making America great again. As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve. As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail. Our families will thrive. Our people will prosper. And our Nation will forever be safe and strong and proud and mighty and free." - President Donald John Trump.


IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!
ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for successfully steering America's ship of States for a full year. What the naysayers said will not happen is a reality which they are finding extremely difficult to live with. But their preferences notwithstanding, Make America Great Again is on course and nobody will torpedo it. Once again, congratulations to the leader of Team MAGA on the anniversary of his being sworn in as the 45th POTUS.

ICHEOKU'S MAN OF THE YEAR 2017: PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP

ICHEOKU says following an examination of so many nominated individuals, we have determined that this year 2017's man of the year is President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. He came into office shooting on both hips and as the year draws to an end, his both guns are still firing and smoking. For standing up to the world and starring down American detractors and being the cheerleader and champion in chief of America, the leader of Team Make America Great Again has earned ICHEOKU's man of the year award 2017. Congratulations to President Donald John Trump.

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman she is, who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


GLAD TO BE CARRIED TO FULL TERM.

GRATEFUL TO BE CARRIED FULL TERM

ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.
ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.

IPOB: NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - USA


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.

ROCKET MAN; ON A SUICIDE MISSION.



"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do." - President Donald John Trump.


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.

North Korea PUT ON NOTICE

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.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.

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 go 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 their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES A 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

PRESIDENT UMARU YAR'ADUA, EVICTED FROM SAUDI HOSPITAL?

It would appear that all indicators now point, affirm and collaborate our earlier sidebar 'Latest F.Y.I.' posting that the suddenly-returned, incapacitated Nigeria President Umaru Yar'Adua was evicted from his hospital bed in Saudi Arabia? The authorities there in the Kingdom of Saud, on the prompting and instigation of the United States of America, unilaterally revoked their earlier 'open-ended' grant of hospital-stay to President Yar'Adua and shipped him back, still wired to his life-lines? If in doubt, ask yourself what is the urgency in bringing back to Nigeria an intubated and comatose president, in an air ambulance, fully sedated and unconscious and in the middle of the night, when his Aso Rock Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is still under construction, not fully up and running, or ready and operational to receive his greatly shrivelled skeletal body?
What suddenly so changed as to require such his hurried and secretive immediate return back to Nigeria; and which informed the sudden decision to rush back to Nigeria, a formerly missing president, who had been away from his duty post at Aso Rock for over 80 days, without any prior or required formal notification to necessary parties, before he absconded from Nigeria? To further buttress the story of his impromptu and sudden expulsion from Saudi Arabia, 72 hours after his alleged return, President Umaru Yar'Adua is still holed up in a mobile intensive care unit ambulance, where he will remain quarantined pending the completion of a permanent ICU on the grounds of Aso Rock; which Icheoku learnt from viable sources, is being unseasonably rushed through to completion. The pointer therefore is, if incapacitated President Umaru Yar'Adua freely came back on his own volition, Icheoku asks, why wasn't the arrangement for his return made in such a way as to conveniently coincide with the completion of his own private Aso Rock Intensive care Unit; so that he wouldn't have to remain isolated in a trailer-park of a mobile ambulance? We are talking about a president of a country and not just any other Joe Blow or Joe Six-Pack or Joe Plumber or Joe Terrorist out there in Nigeria! Why couldn't President Umaru Yar'Adua plead with the Saudi authorities to let him stay a little longer while work is completed on his own ICU? The reason was that the president had no choice or any input in the decision to deport him from Saudi Arabia and is not influential or important enough in ranking to influence anything or change any mind. The world powers, tired of the stone-walling of Nigerian high ups by his wife Turai, wanted him removed out of Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom saluted and complied.
What a shame that Nigeria, the clay-foot giant of Africa, had its president treated so shabbily, just because the said president and his predecessors negligently failed and refused to develop health-care facilities in Nigeria and have instead become objects of laughing stock in so many foreign hospital wards, corridors and consulting rooms. Now, is there any sympathy from us for such a monumental disgrace of Nigeria's sick President Yar'Adua being kicked out of his hospital bed in a foreign land, not yet recovered and still too sick to either walk or even feed himself? None, Nope, Nada as Nigerian leaders deserve such a disgraceful wake-up call, to force them to do some introspection and enable them become more patriotic and nationalistic to start looking inwards! Saudi Arabia as a country does not and did not manufacture any of the equipment or infrastructure in their Jeddah King Faisal hospital; but their leadership was patriotic and reasonable enough to expense their oil wealth in a good way, developing vital and needed infrastructures; rather than squirreling them away in unmarked band vaults in Switzerland and Cayman Islands like their Nigerian counterparts! Icheoku prays that this disgraceful and forcible eviction of Nigeria's President Umaru Yar'Adua from Saudi Arabia's hospital will be a positive lesson for all those charlatans, parading themselves as leaders of Nigeria, to look inward and start developing much needed medical facilities as well as other infrastructures in Nigeria, and henceforth put an end to their being unwanted but merely tolerated medical tourists in foreign hospitals, the world over.
Now pivoting to the issue of the madman, Commander of Brigade of Guards, Brigadier General Abdul Mustapha, who unlawfully and illegally deployed 300 Nigerian soldiers in and around the airport and Presidential villa, on the night Yar’Adua was smuggled into Abuja; Icheoku says, he should be fired immediately or retired forthwith for not only breaching protocol but for also unnecessarily escalating tension in the land? General Mustapha abused his command by parochially and arbitrarily engaging in acts considered very threatening to the Nigeria state structure, he pitched Nigerian soldiers against their commander-in-chief, the duly constituted Acting President of Nigeria. His order deploying these 300 Nigerian soldiers constituted attempted mayhem and anarchical disobedience, capable of causing a total breakdown of law and order in Nigeria. Simply put, such an anarchist is not stable and patriotic enough to dispassionately lead any military formation or command same without the discoloration of religious and tribal sentiments, unbecoming of a since commissioned officer and general of the Nigerian army. What if Acting President Jonathan Goodluck's loyalists have engaged them in a shoot-out thinking that a coup was in the offing, afterall the time and manner of their deployment have similar semblance with a military coup? What if Nigeria have become insufferably and completely enmeshed in a hellish conflagration as a resulting consequence of his brash action? To make matters worse, he took matters into his own hand and acted without any authorisation from any of his superiors and he did not have the military decency to inform them prior; and did not even consider seeking and obtaining the consent of the Acting commander in chief himself. The last time we checked, the Chief of Army Staff and the Chief of Service staff are still his military superiors and military operational procedures demands that such orders to deploy troops drips from top down. This unstable general even attempted to sabotage the 'chief' in commander-in-chief by arrogating that title to himself, thereby committed a treasonable felony against the Nigerian state when he implicitly challenged the authority of the lawful holder of that title? He should be tried for attempted coup or insurrection against the Nigeria government, period!
However, Icheoku is not easily buying the story that this General acted alone and on his own accord, and we therefore call for a full investigation into this wilful disobedience and snub of constituted authority, to unravel all those northern 'almajiris-in-uniforms' who do not mean well for the continued corporate existence of Nigeria. What these bunch of people do not however know and which Icheoku takes the pleasure to remind them and once again reiterate to them and their fellow desert-dwellers, is that "nothing must happen to Jonathan Goodluck!" Nigerians, especially southern Nigerians, are so tired and fed up to the neck with these mallams, that some of them who stayed out during Biafra-Nigeria civil war are now regretting and questioning why the northern Nigeria problem was not solved and finished then when that golden opportunity presented itself? This section of the country, should another opportunity come, will not hesitate one moment to show these selfish northern usurpers how much their arrogance is hated and loathed by other more meaningful and much civilized Nigerians. The arrogant idiocy of these mallams in uniform, robs Icheoku on the wrong side and these people forgot that the world at large has finally come to understand who they really are, and that any hostilities today will have a different outcome from the 1967-1970 Biafran war. Should anything ever break out, Nigeria as presently yoked together, will become history as bottled-up tension and simmering resentful animosity will surely boil over. So, Acting President Jonathan Goodluck should walk with swagger and act with audacity, knowing fully well that he is the bait which the northern mallams must not bite! Simply put, Acting President Jonathan Goodluck is a poisoned pill, filled with cyanide; and anybody planning or plotting to swallow it must be prepared to meet his makers. Enough!
Lastly Icheoku asks, does the Yar'Adua people have the president's best interest at heart in insisting and forcing him to continue in office? Is the Yar'Adua's presidency also his family's trophy to keep or did Nigerians 'vote' for Umaru alone and not jointly with his family? Why would anyone in that family then ever contemplate making one of his inlaws, the vice president? Available information filtering out of the presidential quarters in Aso Rock has it that the Yar'Aduas have given up on their patriarch's making it back to office, and are already scheming and making arrangement to nominate one of their inlaws as Jonathan's vice president when he is finally confirmed the substantive president? Icheoku questions whether this maddening power-grab by the president's family is not so inhuman and inconsiderate; coming so soon after the arrival of a president in life-support, suffering from Chrug-struass syndrome, failed kidney, skin-cancer, lung-emphysema, cirrhosis of the liver, a heart condition and likely, a broken heart? Why is he being so rushed out of this world by his greatest beneficiaries, his family, including his wife, Turai? Where is the love or is it simply a love for power!
Finally, that no one in Nigeria has seen the president since his purported arrival in Nigeria is a good omen as it speaks volume as to the president's finished state. Not the vice president and acting president Jonathan have been allowed to see him? Not the ruling party PDP chieftain and chairman Ogbulafor? Not the Governors Forum's chairman Saraki? Not other leaders of thought and well meaning Nigerians? Something does not sure smell right here, except if the whole story of his arrival back in Nigeria was just a ruse, a bone thrown to the dogs to divert attention from Acting President Jonathan Goodluck rising profile? You never know with these northerners, whose 'almajiri-culture' make them into a one-way thinking and herded fanatical zombies, who believe that their allah ordains destinies and must always fall in toe with their perceived leaders? A people incapable of thinking for themselves and have also proved incapable of providing the required leadership which Nigeria so much needed. In summation, President Umaru Yar'Adua left his body in Saudi Arabia and no one can see an invisible man except you are specially gifted with the vision of Turai Yar'Adua and co. So it is not even beyond doubt that he is back in the country; but good enough, Nigerians did not 'vote' for an invisible president and hence must demand of her national assembly to show courage and give them a president they can see and believe in! If Turai likes, and for all Icheoku cares, let her continue to shield the vegetative president away from Nigerians, including the governors and the governed; the result can only go one way - it will be to her detriment and to the benefit of 'a president-deprived' Nigerians. What a fast-track it would be to the relevant sections 144 and 145 of the constitution on incapacity of the president!

Falana calls for trial of Army chiefs
27 February, 2010 03:29:00 REPORTS
Font size:
HUMAN rights lawyer and President, West African Bar Association (WABA), Mr. Femi Falana has deplored the recent activities of the military authorities that deployed troops in the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for the purported nocturnal arrival of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua from Saudi Arabia. He described the development as a treasonable felony.
Falana who was furious about “this ugly incident” declared that the action of those in command of the military was punishable contempt for the Acting President and Commander of the Armed Forces, Dr. Jonathan Goodluck, who he said was neither aware of the deployment of the troops nor ordered them as provided for by the Constitution.
He said that the military command had committed a flagrant violation of the constitution and its oath of allegiance to the President and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
His words: “With what happened at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport three nights ago, if a gang of un-elected people could move out two columns of soldiers to take over the airport, switch off light illegally against all norms, endanger people’s lives, chase away journalists and airport workers and they have got away with it so far, aren’t they coup plotters? Who gave the order when the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, Jonathan Goodluck, never knew about this unfortunate development? That is a high disrespect to the Acting President and a flagrant violation of the Constitution; it is an invitation to anarchy; it is treasonable felony.”
The WABA president also called for immediate investigation into the incident and trial of those who gave the command and those soldiers that took part in the exercise.
The human rights lawyer, however, commended the generality of the military for their sense of patriotism, especially during the days that preceded the swearing-in of Jonathan as Acting President.
According to him, during the period, power was literally on the street, but the military showed un-common patriotism resisting all temptations to pick it.
“So far, we must continue to commend the patriotism of the Nigerian military even; when power was lying on the street for 80 days, they resisted the temptation to pick it in the interest of political stability and the growth of democracy,” he said.
The human rights activist, however, said that now was the time for the military to demonstrate greater patriotism and commitment to support the growth of democracy, by totally submitting to the authority of the Acting President as well as subordinating to the provisions of the constitution.
He lashed out at the Nigerian media for engaging in what he called “professional misconduct” by reporting that Yar’Adua had returned to the country, when in actual fact the media never saw him arriving at the airport nor was it made to see him at the Aso Rock Villa, if he was truly back.
He challenged those he referred to as the cabal who fed the lies to let the media meet with Yar’Adua or see him if truly he was back.
In the alternative, he challenged Yar’Adua to do a live broadcast to Nigerians to confirm he is in the country. According to him, until that is done, Nigerians must continue to disbelieve the claim that Yar’Adua is back, and that the media should apologise to Nigerians.
