PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS DON'T PUSH ME.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS 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.

"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.

TUKUR'S CONSENSUS ARGUMENT, BABANGIDA SUFFERS CREDIBILITY?

Icheoku says this is certainly an exception to the age-long trite aphorism that truth can sometimes come from an imbecile as a politically, foundationally damaged Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida cannot and should not be heard to preach the gospel of fair play in democratic party politics. This is a man who have participated in virtually every military coups in Nigeria since her independence from then Great Britain in 1960, playing major roles in about three of them, one of which he personally hugely benefited and enormously profited from as the junta's military head of state. Needless to add that many of these coups were against democratically elected governments and hear who is now reading the riot act to PDP for imposing Bamagar Tukur on the party as its chairman. This is a man who also annulled a duly conducted free and fair election of MKO Abiola just to satiate his personal ego and suddenly is now preaching the gospel of democracy against the consensus by fiat of Jonathan's imposition of Bamagar Tukur on the PDP as its party chairman? Icheoku queries when has this anti-democracy Saul turned into a pro-democracy-Paul or is Babangida merely sully because he has been effectively checkmated out of power in the PDP hierarchy through the deft machination of the Otta deity, Baba Iyabo and his protege Anthony Anenih? 



Anyway what Babangida said concerning the consensus manner by which Bamagar Tukur was imposed on the PDP as party chairman is truthful except that Babangida lacks the democracy-credentials to teach or preach any democratic process whatsoever or did he suddenly have an epiphany or amnesia of his own not too distant past and records of seeing red whenever the word democracy rears its wholesome head? Were Ibrahim Babangida any other more credible source, may be Nigerians will pay attention to his genuine observation that the consensus which threw up Bamagar Tukur is a travesty and totally undemocratic; but this evil genius of Minna Hills is not the right and proper person to mouth off such concerns. Simply put, Babangida is now crying foul because he is no longer welding much influence in the party echelons of the Peoples Democratic Party and is just striving for relevance; so Nigerians please don't mind the Evil genius jaare! 

Icheoku while agreeing with the toothy fairy prince of Minna that “a situation where some people would sit and select someone by consensus is undemocratic;" says that Babangida of all persons should not be the one sanctimoniously preaching this gospel, his anti-democracy tendencies considered. By the same breathe, Bamagar Tukur should not in any way try to justify his imposition on the PDP as its chairman because he “believes the worst consensus in any democratic arrangement is far better and more honourable than a military coup." Admitted that Babangida was "an architect of several military coups and a topmost beneficiary of one of them as military head of state; the rule that truth sometimes can come from imbeciles would have ordinarily exonerated him and confer on him the right to complain when none democratic process is used to select a party's chairman, but he is simply too damaged politically as an anti-democracy mean spirited military man to offer Nigerians his useless two cents thoughts on the consensus that imposed Bamanga Tukur on the PDP. Icheoku reiterates that Babangida's opinions are indeed worthless these days; more so when it has anything to do with the democratic process. 

However, the most damaged from the Bamagar Tukur anti-democracy consensus charade is the uninspiring president of Nigeria, Good(BAD)luck Jonathan; who is now synonymous with preaching one thing and doing an entirely different thing. Call him a Pharisee for crying out loud; but Icheoku concludes that the Nigerian president while preaching the merits of democracy goes about un-democratically imposing candidates of his choice, whether it is on his home state of Bayelsa as his preferred governor or now on the PDP as his preferred party chairman. It also did not matter to President Jonathan that Bamagar Tukur lost the primaries in his own Northeastern Nigeria. But with an Obasanjo precedent, where he lost in his local government presidential primaries in 1979 but was imposed on the party as the presidential candidate and served two terms respectively; history repeating itself with Bamagar Tukur's lackluster imposition was a no brainier for President Jonathan. The president himself being a beneficiary of the PDP's lack of internal democracy, it is a little surprise that people are even expressing surprise that he is towing the steps of his own benefactor - Olusegun Obasanjo. But hey, what does Icheoku know anyway on the workings of the "biggest and largest party in Africa" that will be in power until thy kingdom come? What a joke the PDP brand of democracy in Nigeria really is
