CYRIL RAMAPHOSA: A SERVANT PRESIDENT OF SOUTH AFRICA.

“And I will do this as a servant of the people because I do believe that when one is elected, you basically become a servant of the people of South Africa. And I will seek to execute that task with humility, with faithfulness and with dignity as well. That is what I will seek to do. Thank you all for this great opportunity that I’ve been given. I will try to work very hard not to disappoint the people of South Africa.” - Cyril Ramaphosa, President, South Africa.


ICHEOKU says definitely a right tone to flag off his presidency. Provided he translates his words into action by putting his money where his mouth is, he will succeed as president. ICHEOKU says congratulations Mr President CR.


JACON ZUMA: A GRACIOUS EXIT.

"No life should be lost in my name and also the ANC should never be divided in my name. I have therefore come to the decision to resign as President of the Republic with immediate effect. Even though I disagree with the decision of the leadership of my organization, I have always been a disciplined member of the ANC." - Jacob Zuma, former President, South Africa.


ICHEOKU says certainly a gracious and selfless exit. Goodluck JZ and may God see you through your retirement. Thank you Jacob for accepting to relinquish the office and peacefully too. Like former President Jonathan Goodluck of Nigeria, they rose above self, recognizing that no blood of the citizens should be shed in their names. Worthy of emulation, especially in the African continent where so many despot would rather continuously shed the blood of the citizens than to yield the office. Congratulations.


MORGAN TSVANGIRAI: DEAD AT 65


ICHEOKU says Uncle Robert Mugabe finaly outlived him; admitted he put up a good fight trying to be president of Zimbabwe but to no avail. He was 65 years old and died of colon cancer. May his soul now rest. Adieu Morgan.


WINTER OLYMPICS PYEONGCHANG 2018

WINTER OLYMPICS PYEONGCHANG 2018,

ICHEOKU says South Korea is hosting the world of Winter Olympics 2018. A stellar preparation and spectacular performances so far. Congratulations to the host country and the gathered athletes who are gathered in Pyeongchang South Korea for the event.


PERCHED AND REVVING TO ITS ALEINS RENDEZVOUS.

PERCHED AND REVVING TO ITS ALIENS RENDEZVOUS.

ICHEOKU says science and technology are awesome. They make the seemingly impossible, possible. Elon Musk's personal Tesla Roadster enroute to Mars atmospheric orbit. Congratulations to Elon Musk and his SpaceX and Tesla teams.


OBAMA: WHAT DID HE KNOW.


ICHEOKU says what did former President Barack Hussein Obama know and when did he know it. America people must demand of their leaders a full disclosure and full accountability in the unfolding FBI released memo scandal. Only by getting to the bottom of the matter will American people regain their confidence in their law enforcement agencies.


FBI MEMO SCANDAL: OBAMA WAS IN THE LOOP


"POTUS WANTS TO KNOW EVERYTHING WE ARE DOING." - Lisa Page to boyfriend Peter Strzok, two FBI officials.


ICHEOKU says the POTUS then was President Barack Hussein Obama, who had previously denied and lied to the American people that he does not dabble into any FBI's investigative matter. Really?


THE MEMO: THE CRITICAL AND CRUCIAL POINTS.


Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe admitted that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISA court without the Michael Steele's dossier information. Michael Steele was engaged by Hillary Clinton's campaign and Fusion GPS to obtain dirt information on then candidate Donald John Trump which subsequently produced the infamous Steele's dossier. This is the but-for test: but for the dossier alleging collusion, there would not have been a Mueller's Russian investigation.


Michael Steele admitted to then Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr that he was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not, being president. Bruce Ohr's wife was also then employed by the same Fusion GPS which hired Michael Steele to help it with digging up dirt on Trump. But Bruce Ohr kept this critical bias information and the fact that his own wife was also employed in the illicit dirty job activities by the same Fusion GPS out of the Justice department application to the FISA court to obtain a surveillance warrant that led up to the Russian probe. The dossier was a bogus hatchet job manufactured to just smear and nail Trump.


ICHEOKU says the web of conspiracy could not be any clearer: first you have a desperate Michael Steele who is out to stop the election of Donald Trump at all cost and by all and every means necessary. Then you have interest of financial gains through employment, which probably persuaded the hiding of the vital information from the FISA court. The information could have negated the issuance of the warrant and without which the court might have otherwise declined its issuance. Yet somebody is saying what; that the Russian Investigation is not a big ruse or as the president would say a political WITCH hunt.

AMERICA IS HERE TO STAY - PDJT

"Americans fill the world with art and music. They push the bounds of science and discovery. And they forever remind us of what we should never ever forget: The people dreamed this country. The people built this country. And it's the people who are making America great again. As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve. As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail. Our families will thrive. Our people will prosper. And our Nation will forever be safe and strong and proud and mighty and free." - President Donald John Trump.

I AM AMERICA'S CHEERLEADER IN CHIEF - PDJT
"I believe in America. As President of the United States, I will always put America First. Just like the leaders of other countries should put their respective countries first. But America First does not mean America alone. So together, let us resolve to use our power, our resources, and our voices, not just for ourselves, but for our people—to lift their burdens, to raise their hopes, and to empower their dreams. To protect their families, their communities, their histories, and their futures. A nation’s greatness is more than the sum of its production – a nation’s greatness is the sum of its citizens: The values, pride, love, devotion and character of the people who call that nation home." - President Donald John Trump, Davos 2018.

POPE CONDEMNS FAKE NEWS (CNN): SEES WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

POPE CONDEMNS CNN: AGREES WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

ICHEOKU says President Donald John Trump, the man who saw tomorrow, has a new ally. Pope Francis has finally seen the light on what the president has been talking about for nearly two years now. The Holy See has now come to appreciate what PDJT went through in the hands of purveyors of Fake News, which unfortunately is continuing till today. The pope called them evil and compared them to the Biblical garden of Eden's serpent, which fed Eve with Fake News about what will happen if she and Adam ate of the forbidden fruit. ICHEOKU commends the pope for finally turning around the corner. Well done papa for calling out the likes of CNN and co. Bravo.

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!
ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for successfully steering America's ship of States for a full year. What the naysayers said will not happen is a reality which they are finding extremely difficult to live with. But their preferences notwithstanding, Make America Great Again is on course and nobody will torpedo it. Once again, congratulations to the leader of Team MAGA on the anniversary of his being sworn in as the 45th POTUS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH.

ICHEOKU says he submitted himself to the Walter Reed National hospital for a three and half hours medical examination which included his requested, but not required, mental acuity test. The president passed excellently well and aced his IQ test 30/30. ICHEOKU says yet another nail on the coffin of the fake book Fire and Fury hatchet job which had claimed unfounded story about the president's mental health. But will the possessed far left media hordes now take their chill pill and let the president be? Your guess is as good as ICHEOKU's. ICHEOKU says congratulations President Donald John Trump for once again shaming your traducers. It is now all the way live to 2020 and a second term assured victory.


ICHEOKU'S MAN OF THE YEAR 2017: PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP

ICHEOKU says following an examination of so many nominated individuals, we have determined that this year 2017's man of the year is President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. He came into office shooting on both hips and as the year draws to an end, his both guns are still firing and smoking. For standing up to the world and starring down American detractors and being the cheerleader and champion in chief of America, the leader of Team Make America Great Again has earned ICHEOKU's man of the year award 2017. Congratulations to President Donald John Trump.

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ARE ENGAGED: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says they look nice together and hopefully the crazy media and their paparazzi hordes will let them be and not force them into a life of misery or accidentally run them off the cliff. Lady Di's tragic experience is still painfully fresh till this day and no one, not ICHEOKU, wants to relive or experience such awfulness again, NEVER again. May God protect and bless the duo as they take their baby steps into the journey of of so many unknown absurdities called marriage. All the best Harry and Meghan.


AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


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.


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.

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

DAVID MARK, NIGERIA'S SENATE PRESIDENT, IS A HOMO-PHOBE?

Icheoku says regrettably the Nigeria Senate President, Senator David Mark, missed the point or rather exposed his ignorance about homosexuality when he inferred that people are gay simply because of lack or their inability to find opposite-sex partners? According to this former army man, “There are enough men and women to marry each other," and therefore  gays have no basis of being gays and should therefore not be gays anymore? Senator David Mark  hardline position in denying God's children their legitimate fundamental human-rights to marry each other, in pursuit of happiness and love, which being gay has been declared by the United Nations to be, stems from the fact that he failed to understand that being gay is not a choice. It is rather a function of being born that way - gay people were wired from conception to be gay. It is in their DNA; it is a biological makeup and their constitution to tilt and gravitate towards same-sex.

Icheoku is emphatic that it has been scientifically established that biological or animalistic impulse rather than other suggested Sodomic obsession that attracts gay people to one another. Put in another way, gay people are not atypical heterosexual people and this alone is sufficient to make the David Marks of this world to learn how to be more accommodating and tolerant of people who are somewhat different from him and prefers differently. Majority of gay people, if they had a choice, would rather go straight; but they do not feel the magnetic pull provided by opposite sex and the Bible recorded homosexualism as an existent way of life even before the coming of Jesus Christ. Like prostitution which is reputed to be the oldest profession, gaydom has been part of mankind dating back to recorded history and as chronicled in the biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah. Icheoku must however add that the two cities were not destroyed just because of homosexualism alone, admitted it probably was part of the reason and the fact that God could not find ten honest people therein. So any person, including Senator David Mark, who parleys this biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah as being synonymous to homosexualism is economic with the truth and should revisit that biblical passage in Genesis Chapter 18 & 19 and see for himself/herself that sodomy was just an a part but not the whole reason for God's intervention. 


At a time when the whole world including the Vatican is becoming more inclusive and looking for a meaningful way to fully accommodate all God's children irrespective of their private life, David Mark's Nigeria is publicly standing naked and alone, as a country which harbors seething anti-gay views and whose leadership is bigoted against people born that way. A statement as awful as "Gay is offensive to our culture and tradition" will definitely send a rude shock to notable gay men like Sir Elton John, knighted by the Queen of England; and you tell Icheoku what his reaction would be to any of his funds-manager contemplating to make some investments in Nigeria? And to deny that so many gay men and women are venture capitalists and control some enormous resources and impressive capital the world over is to understate the obvious. Icheoku says any savvy political leader in Senator David Mark's position would have kept his views on this subject matter private and his opinion personal; mindful of the reach and interpretation such expressed opinion might elicit and being interpreted as the official Nigeria government position on the gay community. It is called political correctness in manner of speaking, required of every public official as both straights and 'born this ways' are all people under their authority and deserve to be evenly protected. Icheoku says judgment is mine says the Lord and no human-being including Senator David Mark should arrogate to himself the right to treat fellow human-beings as less human-beings, unclean, unworthy or even a taboo; admitted the Dalits of India are suffering the same inhuman treatment in India. 


The entire humanity inhabiting this planet earth are in it together, yoked together by fate to all that exist in this world, including but not limited to sexual preferences. Modern world is all about inclusiveness and not isolation or segregation. Icheoku says if the church could accept homosexuals as full members of the church and some churches even took it a notch further by ordaining 'born-this-ways' clergy, who is Senator David Mark of Nigeria to demean this group of God's children? Senator David Mark proclaimed Christianity as his authority for discriminating against God's own children; but regrettably he failed or did not read that verse in the Bible where God ordered Peter not to call his children unclean ( Acts 10:9-19); and Jesus also admonished that he came for those who are sick and not the holier than thou sanctimonious people like the David Marks of this world. What is marriage but the union of any two units whether of objects of persons; hence the word couple which means to join together. If anyone wants to marry even his rat or her goat, it is okay by Icheoku provided it is left that way and not encroach on other peoples right to freely choose who or what their partners would be. It simply does not and should not matter whether a person is straight or crooked - all that the world needs is love.


Icheoku says if Senator David Marks claims that his particular Christian faith abhors homosexualism and that their way of life is incomprehensible to him, it is okay, provided he spoke within the confines of his opinion only. But he however would cross the line if he tries to pass his opinion off as that of the entire populace or  portray Nigerians whom he represents as their senate president as anti-gay people who are opposed to gay peoples' fundamental human rights.  Senator David Mark should be mindful of the fact that Nigeria does not belong to Christians alone or his brand of Christianity to be precise; and that their morals is not the new laws of Nigeria. Also he should not hold other peoples interests and fundamental human rights hostage to his Christian views and ideology. 


Probably, his Christian faith does not approve of Catholic priests raping and molesting alter boys, yet he has not denounced them with similar venom or threaten to outlaw marriages contracted under the faith? Endemic corruption in Nigeria is possibly abhorred by his Christian faith, yet it thrives and grows in bounds and reap? What about cheating on spouses or people keeping mistresses, divorces as well as other legion of vices and societal madness which go on indiscriminately in Nigeria despite David Mark's Christian faith? Icheoku says for this David Mark to just single out the gay community as the people to pummel is rather very unfortunate and in a country that is not and should not be beholden to one particular ideology or unitary morality source.  If David Mark "cannot be a party to it (same-sex)," he should not be and no one is compelling him or trying to; but he should let others who possibly have differing opinions and views to express them and he should not muzzle or try to intimidate such divergent views with his official position. 


The last time Icheoku checked, there is no place in Christendom that approves of military coup de tat as an approved manner of changing governments, yet this David Mark had participated in so many coups in Nigeria as to disqualify him from holding any office in a democratic Nigeria including its senate presidency. So who is now preaching to the choir but a holier than thou Saint Senator David Mark? If homosexualism is an "importation of foreign culture," Icheoku asks, is presidential democracy indigenous to Nigeria? Monogamy is not  part of Nigeria's culture but it is an acceptable way of life; admitted that both spouses cheat on each other with numerous partners and concubines. How about the myriad of other foreign cultures which have taken over Nigeria landscape and who is this man to say that being gay is "a freedom too many?" Is Christianity Nigerian or an imported religion? The clothes on David Marks back is equally alien, likewise the limousine that drives him about. If David Mark wants to explore culture or foreign influence on Nigeria, Icheoku is ready to debate him any day any time; but resents the singling out of a minority group to scapegoat them using the the ruse of culture. 


Reiterating, Icheoku says there is nothing "offensive and/or repugnant" with being biologically so wired to be attracted to the same-sex; admitted it goes against some societal ingrained position that opposite attracts. If David Mark has any question or beef with the ways or manner and wisdom of God, who also created homosexual people, he should quietly direct his questions to God in prayers; but he must cease and desist from threatening and disturbing the peace of "born this ways" of Nigeria. David Mark should leave Nigerian LGBT community alone to live happily with whoever they choose or prefer to share their love with. If David Mark wants to preach against homosexualism through the streets of Ashkelon or to publish his hatred and contempt for these children of God in Garth, he is free to so do; but he must cease and desist from passing his views off or seen to be speaking in his official capacity as that of the Nigeria government or Nigerians for that matter. 


Icheoku says it is not only homosexualism that David Mark was not aware where it came from, therefore his particular pre-knowledge is not a necessary prerequiste to confer it approval. Shamelessly his acolyte Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, PDP Cross River, naively posited “If we are all same sex how do we produce human beings who have human rights?”  In response, Icheoku says, the problem with Nigeria is the type and calibre of  people in leadership positions such as this Ndoma-Egba, who is now trivializing such a far reaching fundamental human right issue in this manner? By the same token, would this Ndoma-Egba have asked 'if all Nigerians are reverend fathers and sisters, how would they produce people to populate Nigeria?' It is just mind-boggling that the issue of freedom of sexuality in Nigeria is being discussed in this puerile manner by people in authority, knowing fully well the far-reaching effect to Nigeria's image and economy such could cause. Icheoku therefore calls on Senator David Mark to allow an open, free and uninhibited debate and vote on same sex marriage in Nigeria and let the tree fall where it may. David Mark and his types in Nigeria should know that there is nothing abnormal in same sex attraction neither is it a taboo for any of God's children to love whoever they are attracted to. Just get over it, Senator Homophobe and please next time, just keep your opinion private and to yourself. It is called political correctness in manner of speaking required of public officials and a leader should not discriminate or seen to discriminate especially against less powerful minority members of the polity which he leads.
