"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.


"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.



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


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.


"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.


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.

"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


“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


"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)

Icheoku says the election has been fought and won without the help of the northern elders forum and despite the overt as well as covert effort by them to sabotage President Jonathan's election victory. Now is the time to discipline those master-minds of anti-Jonathan activities within the Peoples Democratic Party; among which are Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, Abubakar Atiku, Aliyu Mohammed Gusau and Mallam Adamu Ciroma. These four northern tribal elders and renegade members of the PDP, who not only refused to support the PDP's candidate President Jonathan but went rogue on the party by actively sabotaging President Jonathan's election-effort, joining forces with the opposition parties should be punished.

Election has consequences and now that the election has been won without their help and notwithstanding their active sabotage, Icheoku says let those who made the victory possible send a strong message of their disgust to these miscreant saboteurs that what they did was wrong and unacceptable to the party. Icheoku says these four bitter and unforgiving elderly men are the real enemies within the PDP and they are the most dangerous type to have around; therefore they should be expelled from the party without further delay. 

It is not a case or question of carrying everyone along or trying to be magnanimous in victory;  no, a case as this one presented by these four northern feudalistic apologists, should be specifically treated on its merit and/or demerit. It is imperative that a strong message is sent to other future wanna-be saboteurs of the party, whose personal parochial regional interest may outweigh that of the national interest of the party, that such anti-party activities shall not be tolerated. This will help to encourage those party faithfuls who stuck their necks out despite what was unpopular in their respective regions and worked their butts off to ensure victory for the party's candidate that their good effort as good party faithfuls were noted. Further that the PDP appreciates their loyalty, effort and hard-work which resulted in the resounding victory the party's candidate recorded in the presidential election. 

Icheoku says it is simply unacceptable as it is unforgivable that Ibrahim Babangida, Abubakar Atiku, Aliyu Mohammed Gusau and Adamu Ciroma should spend their time campaigning and working against the PDP's presidential candidate and tirelessly worked for the  success of other party's candidate - the opposition's CPC Muhammadu Buhari. These four men despite being repeatedly courted by both PDP and President Jonathan's campaign team, still went out of their way to work for the opposition, helping them unsuccessfully to broker an alliance deal between Buhari's CPC with Bola Tinubu's ACN. Their objective and driving force being just to defeat the PDP's presidential candidate President Goodluck Jonathan; and you wonder the type of anti-minorities hatred these foursome have for President Jonathan? If any political activity ever reached the height of what may be appropriately termed a 'treason' against a political party, what these four men did amounts to that act and accordingly they should be held accountable and sanctioned. Icheoku says, they should be tried for their egregious anti-party activity and expel from the party immediately. This should be a mere formality since they have by necessary implication, already expelled themselves from the party by acting against the party's presidential interest. Moreso it has become evidently clear that these men lacked the follower-ship and political goodwill hitherto wrongly associated with them in the north and could be dispensed with without much fallout. Their popularity and influence is so localized and very little such that their expulsion from the party will not adversely impact the party's foundational strength. 

These charges are no longer mere accusations and allegations since the national secretary of the ACN, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, personally confirmed these four PDP elders involvement in strengthening the hands of the opposition parties by among other support, negotiating terms of the failed alliance between the ACN and Buhari's CPC. Icheoku asks what manner of true party men would, instead of working to ensure their party's victory in an election, be busy negotiating an alliance for the opposition parties to enable them to be strong enough to defeat their own party's presidential candidate at the polls. This is unacceptable, treasonous, despicable, wicked, mean-spirited, irrational and a gross anti-party for which they must be severely with expulsion from the party forthwith. Icheoku therefore calls on the Peoples Democratic Party to immediately expel the gang of aging tribal champions Ibrahim Babangida, Abubakar Atiku, Aliyu Mohammed Gusau and Adamu Ciroma for actively working against the PDP presidential candidate interest President Goodluck Jonathan; and joining forces with the opposition to ensure Jonathan's defeat at the polls. These four elderly men are not good party men as they refused and did not accept the wish of their party and its choice of a presidential candidate. They also went a step further by proactively working with the opposition against the PDP's candidate in order to defeat President Jonathan and should therefore suffer the consequences of their anti-party activities. Icheoku says, expel these four men from the PDP, now!

Icheoku says that there is no worst anti-party activity than conspiring against a party's nominee in favor of the opponent. Therefore Ibrahim Babangida, Atiku Abubakar, Aliyu Gusau and Adamu Ciroma ganging up with Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu against President Jonathan is as politically criminal as it gets. It is political party's equivalent of treason and these men are guilty as charged and should be at least suspended or even fired from the PDP for gross anti-party activities. They literally took up arms against the party and her presidential candidate, President Jonathan. Icheoku says, fire these saboteurs now! They are spent forces, they have no tangential following and their expulsion will cause no harm to the party! Just do it - GET RID OF THEM NOW

Fresh trouble for IBB, Atiku, Gusau

Fresh trouble for IBB, Atiku, Gusau
This is not the best of times for the trio of former dictator, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida; former vice-president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar; and former National Security Adviser, Gen. Aliyu Gusau, as the three of them may soon be punished by the Peoples Democratic Party for alleged anti-party activities.

Also included for punishment was a former Minister of Finance, Mallam Adamu Ciroma.

Three of them were among the presidential aspirants who fought for the party’s ticket, which was won by President Goodluck Jonathan last January.

Jonathan won the presidential election with his running mate, Alhaji Namadi Sambo.

The President had defeated Abubakar at the party’s presidential primaries. Before then, the former VP had emerged as the consensus candidate of the North, having defeated Babangida and Gusau in a shadow election conducted by the Ciroma-led Northern Leaders Political Forum.

However, the four of them, who are still members of the ruling PDP, were said to have been involved in the botched alliance talk between the Action Congress of Nigeria and the Congress for Progressive Change.

The alliance, if it had worked, would have allowed the ACN and CPC to produce a single presidential candidate, who would have confronted President Jonathan in last Saturday’s presidential poll.

The thinking within the leadership of the party at its headquarters in Wadata Plaza, Abuja, is that the aim of the four prominent members of the party was that the opposition should design a means of defeating Jonathan at the poll.

However, the deal did not work as neither the presidential candidate of the ACN, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, nor that of the CPC, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), was ready to step down for the other.

But rather than deny their involvement in the alliance talk, which is being considered as an anti-party activity by the PDP, Babangida, Atiku and Gusau claimed through a source that the alliance talk did not fail because of their involvement.

Their source claimed that they got involved in the deal because they “were approached by the CPC and ACN leaders to negotiate the alliance deal.”

They added that their intervention was at the instance of the ACN and CPC leaders, adding that if the talks ultimately collapsed, it had nothing to do with their involvement.

But at the meeting of the members of the National Working Committee of the PDP on Wednesday, the case came up and members agreed that Babangida, Atiku, Gusau and Ciroma had engaged in anti-party activities with their conduct and involvement with the opposition.

The members, one after the other, were said to have said that all of them, with their conduct, had shown that they did not work for the success of the party in the National Assembly and presidential elections.

A member of the NWC, who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, said that “members were of the opinion that these men be punished.

“We believe that they are not bigger than the party, and if a minister could be suspended based on anti-party activities, there is nothing stopping us from also dealing with these individuals.”

Asked about the decision that was arrived at the meeting, he said the issue was put aside for further discussion “because some of our members felt that we should approach it with caution.”
