"We know that nobody will give you power on a platter of gold; if you want it, you demand for it and then you fight for it.” - Diepreye Alamieyesigha, former governor of Bayelsa State.
Icheoku says what a telegraphic message being sent by necessary implication to the Igbo people of South Eastern Nigeria in their quest to "smell" Aso Rock come 2015 or any time soon after, assuming there will be a Jonathan's vacancy. But would they ever listen to the cry of the swamp frogs and take this home-truth seriously since no one in Nigeria power equation really believes that the Ezeife & Co power-shift agitators has any fire in their belly to do what it takes?
Icheoku therefore cringes whenever such imperative word such as "must" is used to qualify the Igbo's stand on power shift come 2015; knowing fully well that they cannot march their air with necessary force and or will power to go the whole hog. Fortune smiles on those who dare:- Niger Delta militant terrorists or freedom fighters to some, held Nigeria hostage for so long and now one of their own is the president, so go figure.
