DAPHINE CARUANA GALIZIA MURDER: UNACCEPTABLE.

DAPHINE CARUANA GALIZIA MURDER: UNACCEPTABLE

ICHEOKU says the European Union must not allow this barbarism to go unsolved or unanswered. A journalist blogger blown up in a car bomb because of her writings and in an European Union member country is simply unacceptable. As a result the authorities in Brussels must demand a thorough investigation or better still lead the effort to unravel the monsters behind her assassination and bring justice to them. Daphine Caruana Galizia's murder must be solved and cannot be allowed to become another statistic of journalists killed to suppress freedom of speech. May her soul remain restless and haunt her killers until they are served justice. Adieu Daph.


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!
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.





"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


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

COAS IHEJIRIKA'S APPOINTMENT, GREAT BUT CAUTIOUSLY EXCITED!

Icheoku admonishes the Igbo nation not to be so overtly excited that their kinsman, Major General Ihejirika, has been appointed the new Chief of Army Staff of the Nigerian Army. Ihejirika is a professional soldier who has just been called upon to lead the Nigerian army and to them he owes his service and not to the Igbo nation. Admitted he was born Igbo but now serving the Igbo-inclusive Nigerian army, but there should be no unreasonable 'great expectations' of and by the Igbo people of and from Ihejirika.
Igbo people are here once again reminded that Major General Ihejirika is not an Igbo chief of Nigerian army staff, but a Nigerian chief of army staff who happens to be of Igbo extraction. Also what is excitable about work as Ihejirika has now been called upon to do or is it the fact that he, the workhorse, is of Igbo extraction that is throwing up such a frenzy among
the Igbo nation?
The immediate past president of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Dozie Ikedife, aptly articulated the proper position which the Igbo nation should take on the appointment of Ihejirika and to which Icheoku agrees, that "there was nothing so special in the appointment of our kinsman as chief of army staff." The only exception however lies in what the current president of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Ambassador Ralph Uwechue, said, that "the appointment of Ihejirika as COAS signalled the healing of the wounds that the Igbo nation had been nursing since the end of the Nigerian civil war." Continuing, Uwechue said “his appointment is psychological. It helps to show that whatever happened after Ironsi has been put behind us. It indicates the integration of the progressives into the Nigerian system." Icheoku cannot agree more and adds that while evil-genius Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida was waiting until 2015 to integrate the Igbo nation fully back into Nigeria through a promised presidency, President Goodluck Jonathan has beaten him to that by now handing over the headship of Nigerian army to the Igbo nation. What other way to show a fully integrated Igbos than to put them in charge and let them control the chief security apparatus of Nigeria - its army. What a master-stroke by the master tactician himself, a man reputedly known for his Obama-like demeanor, placidity and calmness, President Goodluck Ebelechuku Azikwe Jonathan.
Icheoku says, finally equity and fairness has come to the seat of power in Nigeria as the Igbo nation has now become accepted as a full integral part of Nigeria with equal right to the leadership and headship of their joint army of one. Unlike the lip-service of the genocidal Yakubu Gowon whose three "Rs" of reconciliation, rehabilitation and reconstruction never took flight nor were in any form or shape implemented, President Jonathan has by this appointment made a bold statement that 40 years after the Nigerian/Biafran war ended in a "no victor, no vanquished" platform, that the subterranean feeling of 'conquerors and conquered' within Nigeria's diverse nationalities should be forever put to an end. Icheoku commends this boldness and objectivity. However unlike the thinking in the United States of America that with the election of President Barack Obama, racism and black Americans marginalization would come to an end but appears now to have become exacerbated, Icheoku hopes and prays that the Igbo nation will not mistakenly assume that it is now Uhuru in Nigeria and that their troubles are now over.
Now is the time to increase their agitation for equal treatment and fair allocation of resources in Nigeria until there is a a sixth state in South East Igboland to equalize it with the rest of other zones in Nigeria, other federal appointments, a second bridge over the River Niger, an international airport in Igbo land, good roads, federal industries, electricity including the rehabilitation of the Oji River thermal power plant, as well as an Igbo presidency in 2015. Or are these too much to ask by a people who has contributed so much for Nigeria's unity through leading the unity-way themselves by usually being the second largest ethnic settlers to any indigenous population throughout Nigeria. Their commercial prowess also helps sustain Nigeria's economic well-being and survival, so why not give them what they deserve and want in order to encourage them to continue doing what they do best - integration and enterprise.
At last the Nigerian/Biafran war could be said to have come to an end with this appointment as a man from the heartland of former Biafra nation, hitherto branded foe of Nigeria, is now put in charge of the Nigeria army. Or better still and for a comic relief, Icheoku says what an irony of fate that the victorious Nigerian army has now through the back-door, finally surrendered to the conquered Biafra by letting a former Biafran take charge of its army? How about that for some stress-relief for the millions of Igbo former Biafrans, who witnessed the atrocious war, conducted with vengeance by vermin Gowon and Awolowo; and which saw more people die of other causes than from bullets and bombs; with millions of women and children perished as a result of Awolowo orchestrated starvation and its related malnutrition ailment, kwashiokor. Congratulations Major General Ihejirika and thank you President Goodluck Ebele Azikwe Jonathan for being dispassionate with the appointment. At last a non direct partisan has ascended the seat of power and wants to redress as an impartial arbiter, the lingering disputation of the last forty years of post war Nigeria between Igbos and the rest of Nigerians.
Icheoku says the ball is now on Major General Ihejirika's court to deliver on the expectation of an ever-ready, strong professional Nigeria army of one, ready to take on any foreign aggression and such other security tasks as the commander in chief, President Jonathan, might from time to time ask them to execute. Provided Major General Ihejirika does not fall victim to the legendary banana peel syndrome which usually afflicts Igbo public officials and gets the deserved support of every Nigerian and their uniformed men and women under his new leadership; and knowing fully well that he will be the center of focal attention by Nigerians eager to see how a former Biafran would manage a Nigerian army, Icheoku believes that he will succeed and bring pride to both President Jonathan, the Igbo nation and the entire Nigeria. Once again, congratulations Major General Ihejirika and let the healing of Nigeria, through a full integration geared appointments such as this COAS, of former Biafran Igbos proceed with full steam!

Ihejirika’s appointment, not to pacify Igbo – Nnamani, Nwobodo, others

Chief of Army Staff, Major-General O.A. Ihejirika
Prominent Igbo politicians on Sunday, said the appointment of Major-General Oneabo Ihejirika as the new Chief of Army Staff was purely on merit.


The politicians, under the aegies of Igbo Political Forum argued that appointing Ihejirika had no political consideration and that it was not meant to pacify the Igbo.


The Forum, which spoke in Abuja, on Sunday, also condemned the sacking of the former Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ogbonna Onovo, describing the former IG as “a hardworking, efficient and dedicated police officer.”


The Forum said Ihejirka’s appoinment was not a pacification of the Igbo to get their support for the 2011 presidential ambition of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, but that the new COAS appointment was purely on merit.


The organisation, with membership that include former Senate President, Dr. Ken Nnamani; a former governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo; Senator Uche Chukwumerije, Senator Ben Obi; the Peoples Democratic Party’s 2010 governorship candidate in Anambra State, Prof. Chukuma Soludo; former governor of Imo State, Chief Achike Udenwa; Hon. Dubem Onyia; former governor of Ebonyi State, Dr. Sam Egwu; Dr. Ezekiel Izuogu; and Prof. Chinwe Obaji, among others, said the appointment was not based on political consideration given Ihejirika’s sound professional and strategic depth and his loyalty, commitment and dedication to the nation’s Armed Forces.


The group, in a statement by its Secretary, Chief Chyna Iwuanyanwu, argued that the appointment was not a plus to the Igbo.


It said, “We also want to place it on public record that before the recent changes, the Igbo people had two top military and security positions, the Chief of Defence Staff and the Inspector-General of Police: Air Marshal Paul Dike and Mr. Ogbonna Onovo respectively. With the changes announced, that number has dropped to one.”


The Forum said they could not understand the rationale behind the removal of Onovo, who, according to them, did not only have a humane deposition but “is also appreciative of the necessity of community policing in Nigeria’s current democratic age.”


The group said, “If, as the media have been disclosing, his removal stems mainly from the state of insecurity in the nation, particularly the South-East, it is surprising that his current replacement, IGP Hafiz Ringim was the AIG in charge of the South-East Zone 9, before his present elevation.


“While we are not imputing any ulterior motive behind Mr. Onovo’s removal and his replacement with the former Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Ringim who was in charge of the Bayelsa State Police Command when DSP Alamieyesigha was impeached from office as the governor, we aver that the recent changes in the police command are unnecessary and un-called for.”
