THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED

THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED
ICHEOKU says thanks to American Bikers, the much anticipated protest in Phoenix rally-styled speech did not materialize. May be we should have more of these Bikers in every rally. Kudos to the real bad ass men with steely balls.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.
ICHEOKU says the United States of America mandate to its military engaged overseas particularly Afghanistan is stop cuddling the bad guys, just whack them. ICHEOKU says certainly a c-change in the rules of engagement and it will certainly make it easier for our warriors who will risk less of their lives and limbs in battle fields. President Donald John Trump is definitely leading as said and providing the leadership our military needs as their Commander in Chief. Way to go.

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

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.

PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN, WHO IS HIS POLITICAL ADVISER?

Icheoku is curious that in a political quicksand of 'Ali Baba and the forty thieves' scenario that Nigeria politics is, that President Goodluck Jonathan could afford to so naively trust his reelection bid in the hands of the north, a people who are so miffed at him for his audacity and are still smarting that he hijacked their turn at the presidency? Even while he was still the vice president to the then gravely sick President Umaru Yar'Adua, the north pressured Yar'Adua to sideline him and turn over power to the secretary of the Federal government Saleh? But now President Jonathan seem to have forgotten so soon the loath this people have for him and have put in their hands his reelection bid?

A more astute and much savvy political player would not take the chance or risk of allowing two northerners, Professor Attahiru Jega and Dr. Haliru Mohammed, in such powerful positions as could determine his fate in the coming April election as INEC chairman and PDP acting chairman respectively. What if they conspire against his candidacy? What if they are surreptitiously working for Arewa's common cause? What if they have a northern agenda and have a preferred northern candidate? What if they have a predetermined election result and only waiting to embarrass the president? What if Haliru Mohammed is tepid in his support of Jonathan's election campaign; hence not pulling all the stops to elect him president? And so many other what ifs.

If Icheoku were President Jonathan's political adviser, our advise will certainly be different - don't do it; trust but verify and please do not carry all your political eggs in just one northern basket.

In a functional society nothing is bad with any such arrangement or entrusting one's campaign in the hands of any person/s or group of persons. But in Nigeria, only a dreamer will permit such a situation, fully aware of the overriding effect of primordial allegiances that trumps over any other supposed loyalty that may exists; or believe that some "outsiders" shall be more catholic than the pope in championing one's cause or carrying its water. Nigeria is not a nation of one but an amalgamation of nations, where each fiercely compete among each other to protect their own butt. A much smarter Jonathan would have known that a disgruntled north will not have his interest wholly and instead relied more heavily on other similarly situated minorities of Nigeria and/or those without a dog in the fight this 2011 presidential election like the Igbos. Jonathan's trust on the north might backfire since Imam Muhammadu Buhari and Cassius Nuhu Ribadu are also running for the same office, added to the painful loss the north suffered in the PDP primaries. What about a PAY BACK TIME Mr. President since the north always remains the north in matters of politics? President Jonathan, Icheoku asks you to please wake up and smell the coffee before your presidential runs into the mired murky waters of a northern conspiracy, pursuant to their Plan B option of "any northerner but Jonathan?" May be it is even too late now to alter the equation with a more triangulated power base including an Igbo party chairman to counter-balance the forces? Anyway, goodluck to you Goodluck Jonathan; Icheoku still strongly feels the election is yours to lose!
