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

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.

FUEL SUBSIDY REMOVAL, NOT THIS TIME JONATHAN..

Icheoku says President Good(BAD)luck Jonathan has defied analysis and only himself and/or his wife Patience are possibly capable of grasping the workings of his inner mind. A president who has not deemed it fit just yet to fire a none performing Inspector General of Police Ringim over the scourge of Boko Haram but who did not waste time in showing the previous IGP Ogbonna Onovo the door out just because of prevalence of kidnappers. Now the same president, despite the advise of his political godfather Obasanjo, has obstinately removed fuel subsidy without even having the decency of keeping the fate with the Nigerian people whom he had promised an April date for the removal. Icheoku queries, how can the Nigerian people be expected to still trust a president who says one thing and does another? As for Icheoku, we were never sold his candidacy like many gullible Nigerians; so technically, we have no sleep to loose over his blatant failure to lead; especially his lack of will to do the heavy lifting necessary to move the country forward.

Removal of fuel subsidy now, despite the best of intentions, does not seem to be the appropriate thing to do at this moment of great tension in the land. As a popular Igbo proverb says, the puppy which the gods want to kill, he first make it mad; so it would seem that a man who is chasing rats while his house is on fire has some loose joints upstairs that needs tightening or tying together. A country already clinging on the cliff due to the murderous activities of Northern Nigerian Islamic Terrorist group Boko Haram, needs no further provocative gasoline being poured on it. But an aloof and somewhat timid President Jonathan seems too far gone in lalaland to appreciate the magnitude of the doodle he and the country is mired in, hence the craving for yet another tinder. It is not wise, it is not smart and it is not intelligent to remove at this time, fuel subsidy; and if it must, then as Asiwaju Bola Tinubu articulated, it must be in a piece meal fashion and not in one helluva-bang style as the present. The masses, whose 18000Naira minimum wage are yet to be paid timely and in full are now being tasked with additional burden of expenses across the board. It is inhuman, harsh and irreconcilable with the "breath of fresh air" promised them by the president. Even in the United States, a bastion of everything capitalism, there is so many subsidies to make it livable for the downtrodden including agricultural subsidy, fuel subsidy, education subsidy, health-care subsidy as well as social security subsidy; so Icheoku is at a loss when the Nigerian government of President Jonathan decided to say to Nigerian masses, "you are on your own" and squeezed their belt much more tighter with the current subsidy removal.

In summation, Icheoku says the most militating problem now in Nigeria is BOKO HARAM and the president's attention and effort should be 1000% devoted and focused like laser thereat and nothing more including the present distracting fuel subsidy question. Seek ye first the kingdom and the rest shall be added unto thee' - so says the Lord and Icheoku does not expect any less from the president regarding the menace Boko Haram in setting up his priorities. Thereafter, let Nigerians decide the question of fuel subsidy and the manner of implementing it whether by increment or in one fell swoop. However, Icheoku still maintains that the principal problem facing President Jonathan is that he was not prepared for the job he is currently saddled with; hence had no clue what he is doing or the road-map to get him to any meaningful destination. Like a plague afflicting Nigeria, President Jonathan is yet another one of those reluctant president who was plucked away from his natural habitat, the academia, his perfect natural fit and mentored against his will to the presidency. If resignation was in the dictionary of Nigerian politicians, may be Icheoku would have added its voice to the growing legion of people asking the president to consider the option of stepping aside; but no such thinking ever cross their minds, so there is no need throwing that lifeline at his doorsteps. The Federal government should therefore and urgently reverse itself on the question of fuel subsidy and if it must. may be at a later date and gradually implemented and not otherwise.
