"Those who said they would make Nigeria ungovernable have failed. Nigeria is still governable and Jonathan is governing it.” - Ezeife, Okwadike N'Igboukwu.




"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:-

Icheoku calls on President Barack Obama to henceforth completely ignore and stop responding to any and all jabs of the Alaskan air-head, Sarah 'mother of Bristol' Palin. It is not the president's place to engage her in her vile comments, as such is somewhat diminishing of his very high office, responding to every hot-air out of this 'street-brawling' woman's mouth. Sarah Palin was not even the Republican Party's presidential candidate and does not currently hold any public office to merit a presidential rebuttal or response to her frequent maniacal outbursts. Icheoku advises the silent treatment for Sarah Palin as this will make her go away and out of national spotlight, as 'duking it out with the president,' is the kind of story our national media thrives in and such will keep her on television.
The president of the United States should not continue to spend his highly valuable time responding to some hallucinatory imbecility of a stay at home, jobless mom in faraway Alaskan wilderness, who was not even a good mother enough that her unwed teenage daughter Bristol got pregnant under her nose. Icheoku wonders how this psychologically disorganized woman who could not even effectively manage her home knows best what is good for America or how to run her fantasy America of her dream? If she was paying attention or was watchful enough over her family, her daughter Bristol would not be having unprotected sex inside her house and possibly on her matrimonial bed, yet she wants to tell us how best to run America; and by her? Only in her deranged mind, may be? Sarah Palin sincerely speaking, is a caricature of American politicians and very delusional about her clout or following; which a presidential rhetorical-engagement helps to sustain.
Such exchange of brickbats between the president and Sarah 'beauty-queen' Palin sends a wrong message that Sarah is effectively the opposition, hence is attracting the president's attention; which ironically succeeds in raising her profile further.
Icheoku says, if any future outbursts from her 'you-betcha-ya' mouth ever deserves any response from the White House, such response should be given by some junior White House staffer or any other person but definitely not the president himself. It is our opinion too that even Vice President Joe Biden should not stoop so low as to take on Sarah Palin since she is not worth all the unmerited attention being given to her. Therefore, a better White House policy towards Sarah will simply be to just ignore her; and in that way, facilitate her quick diminishment and disappearance from our national television discourse. But should her upbraid become so asinine that a high up response becomes unavoidably necessary, then Vice President Joe Biden can step in and lead the effort, but never President Obama himself.
Sarah to most discerning and intelligent Americans, is a non-issue; but she represents the crack-heads branch of the Republican party which adores her and which the mainstream republicans themselves find very repulsive that the are even ashamed of identifying their party with? Every decent American including the enlightened section of the Republican Party are tired of Sarah Palin's street-brawl type of politicking; and such down and dirty politicking must not be glorified with presidential responses. Admitted that the president was dismissive of her over the nuclear question as not being a nuclear expert whose opinion should matter; in addition however, Icheoku says that Sarah is not an expert in anything whatsoever other than in stoking the worst ragamuffins of the republican extreme right, who hardly knows their right from their left and cannot even discern a thing as little as the fact that Sarah Palin knows little to nothing?
Good enough a republican heavy-weight and Secretary of State during their idol, President Ronald Reagan's administration, George Shultz, a man who should know and hence an expert, has scored President Barack Obama highly for what he accomplished by the new SALT treaty! Such views as his are what counts and not a pedestrian assessment by a beauty and no brain woman from Alaska who sees Russia from Alaska; and strictly speaking does not understand the gamut of the SALT treaty, both the expired and the renewed one to even offer a credible opinion? To see how little her comprehension of big issues as nuclear weaponry are and the very pedantic puerile manner she sees them, read her take on the recently signed treaty when she said, "No administration in America's history would, I think, ever have considered such a step that we just found out President Obama is supporting today.
It's kind of like getting out there on a playground, a bunch of kids, getting ready to fight, and one of the kids saying, 'Go ahead, punch me in the face, and I'm not going to retaliate. Go ahead and do what you want to with me." Icheoku says this is the person the republican party wanted to be a heart-beat away from the presidency who sees everything in the eyes of a a "bunch of kids"? Sarah Palin also forgot that a nuclear-free world is a pet-idea of their much touted President Ronald Reagan which President Barack Obama merely continued? Could somebody please tell this Alaskan wild-life killer, Sarah Palin, that nuclear issues are a serious business and not kid's play-stuff; and that she should not so reduced it with such condescension?
Also from what she said at the Southern Republican (Un)Leadership Conference in New Orleans, one would see a person still so fixated on the president that over two years after the election her side lost to President Obama, she is still talking about community organizer, part-time senator, and full time candidacy? What type of a laced cool-aid does this Sarah Palin drink that she is still yoked to her campaign talking points several years after the electioneering campaigning was over and a duly sworn in, sitting president have accomplished almost half of his campaign promises to America including a health care reform? Sarah Palin also failed to realize all the efforts currently being made by the Obama's administration on North Korea and Iran; admitted both countries nuclear effort started way back before President Barack Obama came into office? And in her lunatic fixation on President Obama, she failed and/or refused to note that their own revered President Ronald Reagan it was, who first championed a nuclear free world with the original SALT treaty. In George Shultz own words, "President Obama has picked up on the notion that we can seek a world free of nuclear weapons, and that was very strongly felt by President Reagan!"
Icheoku says, George Shultz is the best thing to happen to President Obama's nuclear reduction treaty with the Russians, as it boosted it and also linked it undeniably to the republican party through their Ronald Reagan. It further commended its incorporation of additional clauses on "verification permissions and continuous investigations". But regrettably all these pluses were lost on this Alaskan mother, who could not even properly raise her daughter well enough, as to teach her not to get pregnant outside wedlock and in her home? Concluding, Icheoku says, Sarah 'beauty and no brain' Palin has proved once again that she is very naive and playing in a league far and beyond her abilities. She is an apologetic shame to all the intelligent women of America, especially those of them in Republican politics, who are now being evaluated through Sarah's eye, being their representative? For not seeing or appreciating the merits of the newly signed Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (SALT), which President Ronald Reagan originally mid-wived, Sarah Palin is now a testament by herself and speaks volume that "with Sarah Palin, the Republican party has no candidate and should start searching for a flag-bearer beyond 2012." What a shame that she still has some following, admitted from the fringed lunatic far-right wing of the Republican Party, the Tea-baggers!
