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.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS MCGREGOR

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

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


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

JONATHAN'S RECONSTITUTED CABINET, NOTHING REVOLUTIONARY?

Many Nigerians are somewhat disappointed with some of the ministerial match-ups Acting President Jonathan Goodluck made of his ministers designate? Principal among this is his retention of Professor Dora Akunyili in the Ministry of Information; a lady whose can-do-spirit and proven track record would have been more beneficiary used in a more essential ministry to the benefit of Nigerians. Icheoku had advocated for Dora to be sent to the Ministry of Power to give Nigeria the power (light) that have eluded them for so long. But the acting president knows best why she had to be kept in her old ministry, but no reason cuts it for Icheoku as she would have been better utilized where her impact could be felt more?
Also the Justice Ministry remained with a Benue State indigene which makes it highly improbable that the atrocities of Micheal Aondonkaa will ever see the light of the day; protected by a kinsman new Attorney General and another Benue stork in the person of the Chief Justice? Needless to add that the head of the EFCC is also from Benue State? Also Icheoku had thought that the joker of a female foreign minister would have been thrown up by Jonathan, for the first time in the history of Nigeria, to hob-nob with America's Hillary Clinton, Mexico's own female foreign minster and other countries that have elevated women amongst their society? But that opportunity was lost with the appointment of a male foreign minister with a jaw-breaking last name that no foreign press would be interested in attempting to pronounce, cover or interview? What a paradox that the hope and change Nigerians thought that Jonathan represented was afterall a ruse, as he has once again proved himself to be the company-man he has always been known as with these ministerial assignments?
Of all the six political zones, the South-East seemed short-changed most as they did not get any key ministry except Internal Affairs? External Affairs, Defence, Justice, Finance, Federal Capital Territory, Petroleum, Agriculture and Works & Housing all went to the other five zones? The entire South East zone got a combined total of four ministers only, which begs the question when shall the entrenched marginalization of the zone ever end? Icheoku hopes the Acting President Jonathan Goodluck will redress this imbalance when he fills the Ministry of Power, Health and Water Resources; otherwise the South East should know that they have no inheritance in the house of Jonathan.
However, Icheoku is impressed with the redistribution of power out of the Katsina-Kano axis; and also for decentralizing the oil/gas apparatus of control between the north and the south, with a Southern Minister of Petroleum and a northern Group Managing Director of NNPC. It is called fairness and inclusiveness, as the northern Hausa-Fulani alone do not own Nigeria and everything in it. The high profile Minister of Finance comes into office highly regarded in the international financial circle; Icheoku wishes him well and pray that the local bureaucracy will not sabotage his vision for a Nigeria finally on course.
Be that as it may, Icheoku is, over-all, satisfied with the caliber of men and women chosen to serve in this reconstituted cabinet. We hope that he will tweak it a little bit to fix noted glitches particularly his wrong choice of ministry for Professor Dora Akunyili? Icheoku had thought that Acting President Jonathan Goodluck would have used this opportunity to correct the anomaly of a Ministry of Information posted Dora Akunyili, but no; instead he sustained the status-quo and re-posted her thereto, in a strange case of continuing her under-utilization and thereby not unleashing her potential ability - a case of a square peg forced into a round hole? Otherwise in the future, Icheoku would rather cabinet-nominees are attached to their designated portfolios respectively, before they go to the senate for confirmation. That way, the wider body will determine whether or not any minister-nominee is a good fit for his/her designated ministry and cause changes to be made where needed, as obtains in more civilized and better functioning countries of the world. Anyway, we wish Jonathan well and hope he can make some positive impact with this cabinet and within the very short period of time left of his Yar'Adua-Goodluck administration! Goodluck to you Mr Goodluck!

(SPECIAL COMMENT):- SEND DORA AKUNYILI TO MINISTRY OF POWER!

Icheoku extends our gratitude to the Nigerian Senate for not compromising their integrity as they confirmed Professor Dora Akunyili as minister designate of the Federal government of Nigeria, despite the cabal's opposition. It goes to show that there is still hope for Nigeria and that the Gaddafis of this world can go on wishing and day-dreaming otherwise? To the Nigerian Senate, thank you for a job well done and to Dora and her co-ministers designate, Icheoku says congratulations and good-luck. Please you must not betray the trust and confidence of the Nigerian people as expressed by her senate with your confirmation. Now Acting President Jonathan Goodluck must properly match these ministers with their most 'fit-ministries' and not yield to the pressures of putting just anyone to certain juicy ministries just because a 'god-father' said so. It will be a mistake, a very costly one for Nigeria and the acting president must not go down this road. As earlier advocated, Icheoku maintains that Nigeria's most needs are three: - energy(power), roads(transportation infrastructure) and security? Give Nigerians these three things and it is passport to Eldorado. Now Professor Dora Akunyili should be assigned to one of the ministries in charge of any of these responsibilities because her 'can-do-spirit' and proven track 'go-getter' record will have her accomplish the task. Icheoku prefers assigning her to the Ministry of Power, with specific mandate to solve the riddle that is Nigeria's inability to have power, despite the generous resources so far sunk thereto over so many years? Dora Akunyili can get it done, she is a problem-solver, Mr. Acting President Jonathan Goodluck. Therefore, now opportunity knocks for you to give Nigeria the ever elusive power(LIGHT), - just send Dora Akunyili to the Ministry of Power and watch her deliver on the assigned task! Now let your governance begin and earnestly begin too; in an over-drive that is, since you do not have much time to rigmarole! Good-luck to you Acting President Goodluck.
