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.


IPOB NNAMDI KANU: A BRITISH CITIZEN ABDUCTED BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT!

IPOB NNAMDI KANU: A BRITISH CITIZEN ABDUCTED BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT!
ICHEOKU says he is a British citizen leading the effort to free the people of Biafra from the clutches of the feudalistic Fulani controlled Northern Nigeria. Now, he is missing following the raid of his country home by the Fulani Army of Northern Nigeria. ICHEOKU says President Muhammadu Buhari led Nigerian government sponsored abductions and murders is on the increase and you wonder what it will take the international community to call him to order.

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." - PDJT


DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

ICHEOKU says the Red Cross does one heck of a good job going to the assistance of the needy; so in these times of great need, occasioned by so many hurricanes, flooding and earthquake, show that you really care, donate to help the victims rebuild their wrecked lives. Remember that the Almighty rewards a cheerful giver.

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

ACTING PRESIDENT JONATHAN GOODLUCK, A DRUNKEN SAILOR?

Barely 30 days since the National Assembly formally empowered him as Nigeria's acting president, Jonathan Goodluck has disbursed a total sum of $3 billion dollars of the nation's money! Icheoku asks Acting President Jonathan Ebelechuku Goodluck to please show or tell Nigerians those projects for which this humongous amount of money was disbursed and expended? What 'returns on investments' did Nigerians get for this money handed out to their selected or 'elected' officials, the custodians? At least the late Tunde Idiagbon used to give the nation a quarterly account of the incomes and disbursements as well as undertakings and/or on-going projects where their money is being spent. So Jonathan, is anything going to change and give way or is the present death-course ordained?
Just two days into his new office as acting president, Jonathan Goodluck opened the valve of the nation's treasury and out flowed $2 billion dollars; yet there is no electricity, the roads are still very bad, the police is still underfunded and ill-equipped to fight the scourge of bandits terrorising the country, millions of youths are still unemployed and without jobs ten years and in some cases more after graduation, the health-care sector is still reeling in a state of anorexia and problems of Nigerians go on ad infinitum. So to what use was this money applied, and how does Jonathan justify these expenditures without any visible or viable appreciable returns therefrom? Where is his management style, frugality or can't Nigeria save for their rainy day, which unfortunately now seems to be every day, if you get my drift? It does not make for good stewardship or a prudent management of the nation's resources to be doling money out to these thieving-governors, without asking them to "show me the projects." He must therefore as a matter of utmost immediacy, fine-tune his approach in order to enthrone efficiency and be a better manager.
Without questioning how the first tranche of disbursed money were spent, 'The Luckiest Nigerian Politician Alive' have again released another sum of $1 billion to the same group of people who did not account for their first allocations. Icheoku is afraid that Jonathan has not learnt anything from the experiences of the past and have not or failed to hold people to account for the public money entrusted to them; and yet goes ahead to give them more? Profligacy of some sort, may be? There is nothing primarily wrong in disbursing money to governors and local government chairmen for the peoples' business, fixing and investing in their respective geographical areas; but not when these recipients have converted states and local government purses into their personal piggy-banks; and could are less if workers are paid, schools remain functionally open and whether the little guy on the street eats? $3 billion can go a long way for a leadership/s that is focused, people-oriented and who have the interest of the general well-being of the majority of the states residents at heart. But no, not this crop of leadership presently bestriding Nigeria, some of who had a chequered history with rabid corruption and whose itching fingers always end up pilfering or rather looting public funds for their selfish beneficial use.
To make matters worse, authoritative sources from finance ministry confirmed that former Olusegun Obasanjo's government left a total of $20 billion dollars for the Yar'Adua-Goodluck administration; which large sum of money has since been fretted away, with just a misery sum of $4 billion now left in the coffers? The question now is, if the Yar'Adua-Jonathan administration spent such a whopping sum of Nigeria's money within just two years in office, on what projects did they spend it or is $16 billion not enough to provide Nigeria with uninterrupted power supply; good roads, freeways and bridges; functioning health-care system; equip and supply the Nigeria police for Nigerians' security; as well as provide some employment for the teeming unemployed youths of Nigeria which continuously balloons out of hand everyday?
Now Jonathan's $3 billion freebie within less than thirty days in office is really crazy; especially since nothing on the ground in the form of democracy dividends justifies such a colossal wastage of the nation's wealth. It is Icheoku's position that instead of the money being used by the recipient governors and chairmen to pad their extravagance life-styles, amidst the seething hunger, hopelessness and despondency in the land, may be a better policy would have been to just leave the money alone in the funds where it is, or better still invest it in a somewhat sovereign fund for the future. It is just too painful that despite all these wealth Nigeria has amassed over the years, that such basic 'primordial' infrastructures, a given in many other reasonable societies with patriotic leaderships, and which help make modern societies livable, is still lacking in Nigeria; and where they exist, in a very abject state of disrepair. So where was the money spent and what justification is there for continuously maintaining the same course to nowhere and embarking on the same failed practices of just handing out money to robbers in government houses without returns on such investments? Icheoku therefore call on Acting President Jonathan Goodluck to watch how he spends the nation's money as if it is going out of fashion; and to require the recipients of such money to properly account for the money already given and received. Provided of course, as a company man, Jonathan is not intentionally feathering the nests of these politicians in office, to financially equip them for future electioneering campaigns or as a necessary trade-off for them to give him the much needed support to transmute into a full presidency?
This is not an attempt to tele-guide Jonathan's psuedo-presidency, no; but we make bold to say that there is an urgent need to check the current profligacy and let Jonathan exercise more caution and become more prudent in managing the nation's resources. There is really no need to continue on this trajectory when it does not produce the desired result of bringing about democracy-dividend for the citizenry. And the last time we checked, Acting President Jonathan Goodluck is not a father-Christmas and never attended a naval academy, talk-less of ever setting sail anywhere including to Barbary Coast; so the question of him being a drunken sailor throwing money in the air should and does not arise. Acting President Jonathan Goodluck should therefore ensure that State governors reciprocate and justify the huge sums of money being handed out to them on behalf of their people. He should require them to turn in cost and budgetary analysis to him periodically, in order to make sure that money being released for the peoples' projects are being used for the purpose and getting to intended targets. Admitted that there is a separation and that the federal government may not dictate to the states on how to apply their states' resources; but at least such governors as did not properly account for their allocations or stewardship should not be allowed to return to their various government houses for second term. And you ask yourself, but what is wrong in a governor giving the people of the state an account of all receipts and expenses which accrued to him while in office; given every year or periodically or as may otherwise be prescribed? Thereafter, any governor beating his chest about what he accomplished or the many roads he put tar on, will be judged juxtaposed the receipts the state took in during the same period of time. This will easily determine whether what was allegedly accomplished is commensurate with or compensatory to the revenue and allocations which the state took in. So Jonathan, get off this spending bonanza!
