NORTH KOREA PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.

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.

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

NIGERIA'S GOLDEN JUBILEE INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY, THE 50 AWARDEES!

Icheoku asks were former heads of state Muritala Mohammed, Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Babangida and Sani Abacha excluded from the distinguished Nigerians who are to receive the golden jubilee awards due to their destabilizing roles in Nigeria through their coup-plotting? Or was it a result of politics of bitterness as is gradually becoming the preferred politics of President Jonathan; the recent shut-out of pro-Babangida Igbo Political Stakerholders at a hotel in Owerri Imo State taken into advisement? Whatever be the case, Icheoku commends the audacity of President Jonathan for placing these rascals in their proper place within the Nigerian political history - the political dustbin.
It is only in Nigeria where criminals are celebrated leading to these four despicable Nigerians being erroneously celebrated in some quarters as statesmen? The same impetus enables 419 practitioners to find their way into the Nigerian senate as well as some traditional institutions as their custodians. What President Jonathan just did by shunning these four human-beings is proper and Icheoku believes that such public disavowal, scorn and odium will go a long way in stemming the tide of criminality in Nigeria when criminals know that they will be so publicly shunned or fingers pointed at them as the reason Nigeria is standing on its head today. Way to go President Goodluck Jonathan!

The implication of this show of disdain is that these four army men did not contribute anything to the development of Nigeria but brutally through their jackboots destroyed the fledglings that were taking roots in a democratic Nigeria. Icheoku also could not agree any more with Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Alhaji Mahmud Yayale Ahmed, who said that the 50 personalities being honored are for their contributions to the development of the country. But conversely looking at the sorry state that Nigeria is today, a concomitant question naturally follows, is it even ok to vouchsafe that these people contributed any development in Nigeria, otherwise where are they? But hey, at least they did not like those four armed and dangerous bandits, muscle their way into power and for this among other things they stand out to be counted as the shinning stars on Nigeria's beacon.

However Icheoku must observe that conspicuously missing from the list are Ebam Eda Fela Anikulao Kuti for his music as a weapon for change and societal upliftment, he was also a great ambassador of Nigeria introducing the world to Nigeria through his world-famous brand of Afrobeat; Chief Gani Fawehimni for his human-rights activism and fine legal mind; Chief MKO Abiola for his democracy credentials; Reverend Father Tansi the first Nigerian to attain a sainthood; Austin Ilodibe of Ekenedilichukwu Transport for a successful conglomerate that employed so many and provided commute to millions of Nigerians; our music maestros Ebenezer Obey, Osita Osadebe and Sunny Ade for providing food for our desolate souls. These people projected Nigeria to the world in various capacities and created tangibles one can really appreciate. But whatever be the paradigm for the selection, Icheoku surrenders to the superior reasoning of the committee that did the selection; but sure is glad that the criminal coup-plotters of Nigeria were well humbled through their exclusion. These jackals contributed nothing to Nigeria development except sorrow, blood and tears!

IBB Not Moved By Exclusion From Award – Brother
SUNDAY, 03 OCTOBER 2010 03:52 ABU NMODU, MINNA
Amidst controversy over the non-inclusion of some former military leaders in the 50th independence anniversary award list, brother to former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, Alhaji Datijo Aliyu has said that Babandiga is not worried by its non inclusion.

Datijo, a member of state executive council between 1999 - 2008 posited that the only thing that worries Babangida now is how Nigeria will be delivered from its present stage of economic degeneration to the hillcrest of prosperity.

The brother who was speaking exclusively to LEADERSHIP SUNDAY said there is no way the history of Nigeria will be written without General Murtala Muhammed, General Muhammed Buhari, General Ibrahim Babandiga and General Sani Abacha, maintaining that they all contributed in one way or the other to the overall development of the country.

He explained that all the former leaders excluded from the award list had at one time in the history of Nigeria put their lives on line for the survival of the nation. "There is no reason that justifies the exclusion from the list, but General Babangida is not worried about any recognition. He built the Federal Capital Territory, established Federal Road Safety Commission, created states, established universities, built third mainland bridge Lagos among others".

"Even Abacha created states like Bayelsa, Nasarawa, etc and established PTF that brought smiles to the faces of many Nigerians. Murtala is one of the most disciplined General that Nigeria ever had and questioned what qualified Obasanjo to be in the award list, saying that it was a pure act of vindictiveness orchestrated by Obasanjo to get at the former leader.

On the bomb blast he said it was highly unfortunate that some people can take the life of their fellow human beings, adding that despite the recent changes in the leadership of security outfits, kidnapping, bomb explosions were still threatening the lives of Nigerians
