"My word is my bond. I ride for the brand. Once I am committed, I am in it for the long haul." - Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State on loyalty.
“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.
"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.
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.
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.
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.
"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?
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 “” 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.
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 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.
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.
"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."
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.
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.
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.
"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
"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.
"Our leader died in Germany"; with those words, an official with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) confirmed the passing of the once Iraqi president and foremost Kurd, Jalal Talabani. He was 84 years old and died of brain hemorrhage and stroke. May his soul now rest. Adieu Big Man.
Icheoku says he stood on a car and shot two unarmed black occupants 15 times after twelve other officers had first riddled the same people with 122 bullets; yet Judge John O'Donnel found Officer Michael Brelo not guilty of anything. It is in Cleveland Ohio and those two black people killed were husband and wife Melissa Williams and Afredo Willaims. Icheoku says it is America and black life don't matter; just another black persons biting the dust, so what?
"I think those SEALS did exactly what they should have done and we need to shut up and move on about the realities of what happened in that building in Abottabad Pakistan." - Senator John Kerry, Democrat Massachusetts.
Icheoku is happy to learn that President Jonathan's state security services of Nigeria has released blogger Okey Ndibe's passport and by necessarily implication his person too. Once again, another triumph of peoples outcry over the whims of one emerging dictator. It shows that protest works; and like Flea Anikulapo Kuti's "I go shout o", Icheoku shall always shout each time any conscientious commentator is picked up by those Nigerian men of power!
There is no wisdom in feeding a lazy fat cat which would not care to chase away an intruding mouse. - Idowu Ohioze, Edmonton, Canada.
Her body was found in her Los Angeles home. TM was 54years old and in case you do not remember who she was - remember the song, Square Biz?
The Save Nigeria Group was the first to alert Nigeria of the bribery tendencies Nigeria's President Jonathan with his $50,000 attempted bribery of the group. Not fazed by the disclosure, President Jonathan has now put his sight on the leadership of the national assembly who he has decided to bribe with their acquisition of official government quarters as their own private homes. Icheoku screams holy macro and queries if the past leadership had acquired these properties, where the present leadership would have resided. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck and Nigerians must be wary of this aloof Niger Delta operative.
Charles Rangel violated House rules with financial misconduct, brought it discredit and accordingly will be punished; so ruled the ethics committee. Icheoku sympathizes with the 80 year old Democrat from Harlem New York but takes reservation at some of the lame excuses or defense he tried to come up with.
"The late president Umaru Yar ‘Adua served for one term and I will complete the second term and thereafter 'any person from any other other region can take over." - Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida speaking at Dutse, Jigawa State. Icheoku asks when did Babangida's previous stand that South East Igbos will produce the president in 2015 change to "any person from any other region." This toothy-monster of Minna cannot just be trusted and only an imbecile takes him for his words.
"The Americans should not occupy the entire Middle East...bomb wedding parties...annihilate an entire village just because one terrorist is hiding there." - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran. Icheoku says, then let them pony up the terrorist and save themselves from further raining down of bombs.
"The era of following a policy of carrot and stick is over. Even such words are insulting to nations. It's only good for cowboys and those of retarded people. Definitely it has no effect. They issued resolutions as talks were underway, still, we are ready for talks." Icheoku says what a case of a midget poking his finger at the world; and if sanctions are not working, why the sudden call for talks, after Iran had severally in the past and before the sanction rebuffed the world's every effort at making it see reason.
Look no further for the evidence that Nigeria's financial situation is dire and all her creditors should better be wary. Icheoku asks what does Nigeria have to show for the expenditure of $19.54billion just between 2007 and 2010; during which the Excess Crude Account (ECA) which held $20 billion in 2007 when Obasanjo left office has been depleted to a mere $460 as at August 2010. What band of thieves have descended on Nigeria in this way that its resources should be so cannibalized and with nothing to show for it, as trade-off. Please when will that army man who can clean the Augean stable, rise and hold these thieving mongrels accountable?
"I think it's just more sadness. Because I don't think you ever go into a marriage looking to get divorced. That's the thing. That's why it is sad." - Tiger Woods. Icheoku admonishes TW if only he had thought about this line before letting all those cheap bimbos sample his whiny; may be he would not now be the loneliest man out there left in the cold by a distraught ex-wife!
