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.

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

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


ONLY THE POOR WISH THEY HAD STUFF?

“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.

ATIKU ABUBAKAR, A CONSESUS CANDIDATE WITHOUT A REAL CONSENSUS?

ATIKU ABUBAKAR, A CONSESUS CANDIDATE WITHOUT A CONSENSUS? 

Technically speaking, Abubakar Atiku lost 4-5 in the final vote for a northern consensus candidate; five out of the nine northern elders electoral officers voted against his candidacy including the father of consensus himself, Adamu Ciroma. Icheoku says that with less than half of all the votes cast received by Atiku, it is a misnomer to still call him the consensus northern candidate for president because he does not have a comprehensive mandate. By consensus is meant that all parties have agreed without let that the candidate be declared unopposed as the choice of all aka CONSENSUS CANDIDATE. But Atiku only got minority votes of four and not majority five or consensus of nine; yet he is their 'consensus candidate?'

Atiku also have a lot of baggage and obstacles to contend with to clinch the PDP presidential candidacy talkless of being elected president of Nigeria; including his former boss Obasanjo who swore long ago never to let Atiku become president under his watch. Icheoku says, hopefully those northern elders forum electors gave this Obasanjo's 'No Atiku' stand the serious thought it so badly deserves. Atiku also barely scraped through past the evil genius Babangida, who would have easily been the north's strongest challenge to President Jonathan and therefore the north's best shot.

Anyway Icheoku is waiting and watching; but with just only 4 votes against Babangida's 3 and Saraki's 2; Atiku's consensus is suspect as his votes tally is not highly reflective of a typical consensus candidate's votes. With such a thin margin of 1 against Babangida, Icheoku expected the northern elders to have called for second balloting between the two top vote-getters to see how the nine votes would have been split amongst them. But nay, they are very old and apparently senile to think proactively in the present and in that trajectory. So without a total mandate, Icheoku wonders if Atiku Abubakar could rightly still present himself as the north's consensus candidate and whether the north will even support him in the primaries in view of their elders implied rejection of him at the consensus level.

But like the popular saying goes, beware of what you wish for Adamu Ciroma; as the best your north presented may not afterall be good enough to face and beat President Jonathan. Babangida was the only candidate the south feared was going to upstage Jonathan hence the barrage of attacks on him to shock his being and force him out. But, as always that 'Goodluck' in President Jonathan came to the rescue as the north unknowingly solved Jonathan and south's main headache, Babangida. In his stead, they anointed Atiku as their consensus candidate but forgot that Olusegun Obasanjo is still around the corner and on Jonathan's side?
