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

BABANGIDA SEEKS TO OUTFLANK JONATHAN THROUGH THE SOUTH-EAST?

With a promise of an Igbo South East presidency in 2015, the devil incarnate Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida is testing the waters of the South East to see if it is conducive for him to launch his moribund boat and set sail for the Nigerian presidency in 2011? Icheoku asks but can anybody give to another what he does not have or possess? Except such a promisor is living in the la-la land of make-believe and wishful-thinking like Ibrahim Babangida, the answer is an emphatic resounding 'NO'; and Icheoku wonders the worth of such a boastful and empty promise to the Igbo nation of South East Nigeria.
Once again, the fabled Igbo peoples' lack of political adroitness and/or cohesion when it comes to taking a firm position on matters affecting them and protective of their collective interest in Nigeria and elsewhere in the Diaspora, is being tested by a motley of presidents wanna-bes including the infamous murderer Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. They have queued up, severally courting the Igbo nation with different heavily promises, both realistic and unrealistic ones as they scheme their evil way to the presidency of Nigeria in 2011. Left in the lurch is an Igbo nation which like a deer caught up in the headlights is still bamboozled, as they debate and rigmarole over which side of the divide to pitch their tent of support. First they agreed to support Jonathan, then recanted themselves and seem now to be undecided; and you ask yourself, has Babangida also bribed them as he did with Nigerian journalists that any of them is even considering his candidacy? Icheoku decries this indecisive seating on the fence by the Igbos as an unhealthy non-beneficial political puerilism which serves them no good; and hereby call on them to forthwith and without further ado, cast their lot with one of the presidential camps before they become irrelevant in their permutations. The Igbo nation should not wait to be courted by any of the grooms this time; they should force themselves on one of them; and by forcing the issue, tell the groom what it is that they want and that attracted them to him in the first place.
Icheoku wants the Igbo nation to know that the ability to make up one's mind and take a decision when it matters most marks out a real man from the wussies of this world. Further borrowing a leaf from the evil-one Babangida, history will always forgive a bad decision than no decision at all; so let the Igbos decide today whose presidential interest they will serve and pitch their tent accordingly and stop waiting for all the heavy lifting to be completed by others before playing a second fiddle for whoever secures the trophy. Notable presidential candidates are again at the usual 'on and off' romance with the Igbo nation, using them as a pawn in their yo-yo political game of trying to outwit one another other. The fabled late Zik of Africa and Owelle of Onitsha, Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe once described this peculiar Igbo position as their being the usual beautiful bride who every political suitor in Nigeria woos, courts and dumps as soon as she looses her virginity and delivers the child of destiny - the presidency. In 2010 prelude to 2011 presidential election, it is again same old same old; of using a people whose inability to really and properly articulate what it is they want out of Nigeria's unholy wedlock has bedeviled their gaining their rightful position within the Nigerian polity.
Today this wish-washy Igbo nation's inability to take a firm position and stand by it has reduced the once very proud and respected Igbo stork to the lowest and most derided newest minority group of and in Nigeria. Is Icheoku pissed off at what has become the fate of the Igboman in Nigeria, you bet. Is Icheoku mad at those inept Igbo leadership that had supervised this decay, yes and rightfully so; for it is beyond pale the degradation to which the Igbo race has been reduced to in today's Nigeria. The once proud owners and occupiers of the table of power in Nigeria are the new beggarly prostitutes of today, genuflecting and cowering for whatever crumbles that might fall from their new masters Hausa/Fulani, Yoruba and now even the South-South's table. Who is to blame for this descent into near political irrelevance and obscurity but the Igbos themselves, whose crass infighting amongst themselves and their fabled crab-mentality have conspired to deny them their rightful place in Nigeria. The Igbos are supposedly educated but yet not learned or well informed; the Igbos are wise yet foolish; the Igbos are clever yet dumb; the Igbos are smart yet inarticulate; and above all they are grossly disunited and possessed of an unruly mob mentality which makes it utterly difficult for any one of them to emerge as their guiding light to chaperon their destiny. The result, the aground to which their ship of nationhood have ran in today's Nigeria; and whenever it resumes sail, is most likely to be marooned again in a island of nowhere since a vessel without a designated captain lacks any meaningful voyage direction or destination. Is this the fate of the Igbo man in Nigeria or the best they could wish or aspire for themselves within the polity or can they do better?
The evil-one and self-confessed evil genius of Nigeria, a double badness, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida having failed to jump-start his dead on arrival presidential campaign from the Yoruba South-West have now turned South East as a plan B - to use the Igbos of the South East as a life-saver to his comatose and imbecilic presidential ambition. His bait of choice, the dangling of Nigeria's presidency in 2015 before the Igbos as theirs for the asking, conditioned on their playing alongside his team from hell to realize his own presidential ambition? Icheoku is convinced that Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida honestly believes and hopes that the Igbos will bite his poison bait and follow him to commit a mass political suicide in Nigeria, the Reverend Jim Jones Guyana example? Icheoku asks, when did this mad man of Minna, in his delusional state, think up the possibility that 2015 will again present another situation for the accommodation of another Ernest Shonekan from the South East, who he can again install as the interim head of government of Nigeria? Failing which, Icheoku condemns this petulant display of crass arrogance by Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida as self aggrandizing thinking that he alone can make the Igbo man president of Nigeria. What an idiotic statement of high fallacy and falsehood, coming from the very windpipe of the Nigerian Maradona, a man to who evil means good such that he prides himself as the evil genius of Nigeria.
Babangida's latest gambit of love for the Igbo man and professed scheming for an Igbo presidency in 2015 flies in the face of known evidence of his penchant anti-party to the Igbos and his constant sabotage of everything Igbo; despite eloping during the war with one of Igbo's most beautiful lady, the late Maryam. First Babangida and his fellow bloody mallams from the north and few disgruntled Yorubas led by Obasanjo, Akrinade and Adekunle conspired to scuttle Igbos march towards self determination during Biafra; when they marched mercilessly through then Biafran land of Asaba executing the massacre of every young and able Asaba man in 1970 under the supervision of the satanic worshipper, the late Muritala Mohammed. Till date no one ever in authority in Nigeria has deemed it fit to raise the issue of compensation for this wanton and unnecessary destruction of lives of Igbo men of Asaba stork and Babangida had eight years as a power hijacking despot of Nigeria between 1985 to 1993 to do so if only he wanted, but refused to do so or even tender an apology in that respect. The same Babangida it was with Gowon and co, who decided to checkmate a surrendered Biafra into a landlocked territory by depriving them access to the sea with a lopsided states creation which succeeded in cutting the core Igbo nation off from the Atlantic Ocean; yet he is professing his love for the Igbo man and expressing a desire to "install" an Igbo man president in 2015? Babangida it was who created states in Nigeria and not only refused to equalize the number of states in the present South East to be at par with the rest of other zones; but also failed to give the Igbo people on the west of River Niger a full fledged state they can proudly call their own. Instead, he decided to force-lump them into a permanent minority status in Delta State with the majority Urhobo and Itshekiris, leading to the Delta State Igbos not being able to produce a governor of their state' governor ever since; yet Babangida professes his undying love for the Igbo man. It was Babangida with Buhari and Abacha who planned and thwarted the prospective emergence of Alex Ekwueme as president of Nigeria in 1987 when they forcibly overthrew the government of President Shehu Shagari to subvert Ekwueme's prospective presidency in 1987 under the guise of stemming the economic dysentery and diarrhea afflicting Nigeria in 1983.
Icheoku says and warns every Igbo man and woman entertaining the proposition of the evil one concerning Igbo presidency in 2015 to please revisit the archives of history and ask him/herself whether he is really buying this white elephant kite being flown by Babangida and for what reason? The Igbo man's greatest undoing is their childlike behavior, of usually running after a candy held out by other races in Nigeria without themselves aspiring or desiring with all the sinew in their body to be the managing director and gatekeeper of the candy store handing out those candies themselves.
Icheoku says, Babangida must be smoking a lot of pot lately and thinks that every Nigerian especially the Igbos are also too doped and hallucinatory to remember his antecedents and well documented anti-Igbo people record. Any Igbo person in doubt should first check with Ebitu Ukiwe and hear his story of what he went through under Babangida and his anti-Igbo policies including the surreptitious membership of Nigeria in the OIC not caring a whiff that over 99.9 percent of Igbos are non Muslims. As Babangida's chief of staff (second in command), Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe was relegated to the background and at one time, courtesy of Babangida's instruction, was to come after Abacha, an army chief under him, in a procession. So Icheoku calls on every Igbo man romanticizing with the idea of a beneficial Babangida's presidency for the Igbos to first consult with his inner minds and juxtapose it with known antecedents of Babangida anti-Igbo records before buying the evil one's fantastical and nonsensical promise of a 2015 Igbo presidency.
Usually when someone tells you where he wants to go, you ask him where he was coming from in order to level off his prospect of reaching the new destination. A leopard' spots does not easily change and the last time Icheoku checked, Babangida has not become a convincing camelion either; and is only deploying this 2015 Igbo presidency as one of the last weapons of his mass destruction of Nigeria against President Jonathan; trying in vain to drive a wedge between the peoples of the South South and their South East southern neighbors. But this should not be misinterpreted as Icheoku's endorsement of President Jonathan's attempt to appropriate north's four more years of a zoned presidency, no; as our position still remains unchanged that Nigeria's unity will be better off served if the zoning arrangement of the PDP is maintained, That way, every sectional groupings in the country can have something to look forward to, a shot at the presidency; and not the dividing indifference by certain hitherto perpetually marginalized minorities of Nigeria who feels they are being exploited for no returns by the majority.
As far as Icheoku is concerned the question of how many terms Babangida would rule post 2011 is moot; since he cannot and shall not be elected president of Nigeria to start with; not in 2011 and not anytime thereafter. Nigerians have since resolved that never again shall an evil person rule them again; especially when that evil person is an evil genius himself - a double evil. Babangida, a drowning man reaching out for every straw he can lay his flopping hands on was via a proxy at the recent World Igbo Congress (WIC) in Philadelphia Pennsylvania USA preaching his newly found gospel of Igbo 2015 presidency. According to this toothy monster of Minna, his impetuous desire is to "see that power moves from the North to the South-east to demonstrate the full integration of the Igbo into the mainstream of the country in order to put an end completely to the 30 months civil war"; and you ask yourself, when he was in charge of Nigeria what did he do to better the lot of the average Joe-Igbo man in the south East. Did he build their roads, no! Did he build an international airport in Igboland, nope! Did he build a second bridge on the River Niger which his sadistic Nigeria troops destroyed during their genocidal war against the people of South East of Biafra, no! Did he rehabilitate Oji River power station that hitherto supplied power to the entire South East, he did not! Did Babangida build industries in the South East Igboland, no! Did Babangida dredge the River Niger to make it easier for Onitsha and Aba importers and traders to use the navigable water ways to reduce cost of doing business, no! So now tell Icheoku what stupid intergration this toothy fairy of Minna is talking about when he refused and failed to implement same when he had the opportunity as a maximum ruler of Nigeria.
The bottom line is that Babangida's mind is playing tricks on him and has taken his entire thought process hostage. For Babagida to think that the Igbos are not sophisticated enough to read in between the lines and will fall prey to his ice-cream of a 2015 Igbo presidency and come out in droves to support his already failed presidential bid is hallucination in an overdrive.
In summation, Icheoku calls on the entire Igbo people of Nigeria not to fall for the bait of the corrupt fisherman of Minna, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, who might as well be so dead long before 2015. At 70 years old now, reaching 75 in 2015 might be such an uphill task judging from the life span of an average Nigerian and a Minna man for that matter. But assuming he does not die and is still sane enough in 2015 and chooses not to retire but instead to remain the eyesore he is before many decent Nigerians; Icheoku asks where are the guarantees from that the scumbag who took Nigerians on several years of a jolly ride to an endless transition to democracy and also an election which he annulled will perform his side of the bargain? What guarantees can a criminal master-mind and operative give, who as a defence minister went up against his boss Buhari and overthrew his government. What guarantees are there left in a man who killed his best friend forever and his wedding's best man Mamma Vasta based on a phantom coup? What guarantees are there in a man who blew Dele Giwa away with a parcel bomb in order to forcefully stop a story of his drug complicity with Gloria Okon from ever making it to the news stand? What kind of guarantees are the Igbo people looking to get from a man who snubbed Justice Oputa's investigative panel and the last time Icheoku checked Oputa is an Igbo man from Oguta Imo State; adding to the litany of chronicled Babangida's disdain for the Igbos.
What Icheoku is saying is that the gratuitous promise of a 2015 Igbo presidency in return for Igbos supporting Babangida realize his 2011 presidential fantasy is as worthless as the saliva wasted while spitting it out since the man making the promise cannot give what he does not possess or own. Nigeria's presidency is not Babangida's nor his for the asking and/or to give or bestow; otherwise he should not be running for it but would have just grabbed it. For any Igboman to buy into this phantom promise is to similarly believe that elephants can fly especially the white species; therefore the Igbos must distance themselves from the Babangida's DOA presidential dream and run away as far as their legs can carry them from the evil genius. Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida is toxic and such an unwanted piece of garbage should not be embraced by the Igbos of the South east not even for the illusory promise of a 2015 presidency.
The latin maxim "nemo dat non quod habet" aptly applies to this grandiose promise of a 2015 igbo presidency since Babangida does not own Nigeria's presidency and therefor cannot give to the Igbos that which he does not possess in 2015. Lastly Babagida going to the WIC is a wrong move since the said body no longer speaks nor hardly ever spoke for Igbo Diapora; it long ago lost its mojo and gravitas as an umbrella Igbo Diaspora organisation and neither have any influence abroad nor even among the Igbo market women back home in motherland. So how about that Babangida for the plane ticket and hotel accommodation of your delegate to Philadelphia; and Icheoku believes a lot of such opportunists are lined up throughout the Hilltop mansion in Minna waiting to collect part of the looted stash based on one thing or the other; but hey it is Nigeria's money and so Icheoku does not begrudge any Nigerian who lies his way into Babangida's evil and wicked heart to collect part of it. All said and done, this latest manuover based on some military training received at Fort Bening Georgia will not be sufficient to conquer Aso Rock and a wise man knows when to cut his losses and scamper; but regrettably Babangida is merely brutish but not wise and his wild goose chase continues!
