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

ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. 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

"TINUBUOCRACY", AN ABT BRAND OF DEMOCRACY?

Icheoku says what is happening in Nigeria in general and in its political arena in particular, never ceases to amaze people with still some modicum of decency left in them. That a single man would corner and allocate to himself all the goodies of the state, just because he can, is very tragic indeed and especially in a polity with so many poor, under-served and under-privileged class in abject and hopeless destitution as Nigeria. 

This banditry is also so widely spread that one is wont to think and believe that the biblical city of Sodom and Gomorrah, where no honest people could be found, has reincarnated as modern day Nigeria? This elite-class commit the thievery with such affront blatancy that one begins to wonder what manner of humanity inhabit the entity called Nigeria. Added to this brigandage is a very docile and long-intimidated populace that have since resigned their fate to their "God" instead of proactively holding this elite-class accountable. 

Take the case of Lagos State and the entire Yoruba Southwest Nigeria for an example where one man, Ahmed Bola Tinubu (ABT), has captured the political landscape and with it, the spoils of office. This man, admitted very powerful in Yoruba Southwest Nigeria, has stunned many watchers of his politics by the manner he has succeeded in coveting offices and purse of Yorubaland to himself and family. His success is such that he is now reportedly among, if not, the richest Yoruba man alive and politically, he is so accomplished that even people like Olusegun Obasanjo do not cough audibly any longer in Yorubaland politics because of ABT. While Icheoku acknowledges Ahmed Bola Tinubu's ability to mesmerize the Yorubas into a stupor-like followership, kow-towing his political initiative and answering 'YES SIR' to whatever Bola, the Leader, says or desires in order to find accommodation in Yorubaland politics, Icheoku says democracy is made of a sterner stuff and no one man should be allowed to hold it in such a vice-hold. 

However that this man should unperturbed(ly), personally, covet treasures and offices of the Yoruba people and assigning persons that meet his fancy respective offices, while retaining the power to make it difficult for them should they later "grow smart" including power of removal from office, still befuddles Icheoku. Ahmed Bola Tinubu's impetus is so brazen that he personally appropriated five offices to his Tinubu family:- his wife Oluremi Tinubu is an ACN Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, his daughter Sade Tinubu is an ACN State Assembly member representing Agege Constituency in Lagos State House of Assembly, his son in-law Oyetunde Ojo is an ACN Congressman at Federal House of Representative, his wife's sister Lola Akande is also an ACN Lagos State House of Assembly member. To add insult to this injury and peradventure another feather to this greedy power-grab plumage, the same Ahmed Bola Tinubu very recently imposed yet another daughter of his on Nigerian Market Women Association as their leader, thus succeeding his late mother with his daughter; and acting as if cronyism was not previously well defined before and should have been defined as TINUBU instead? 

Icheoku says needless to add that all these positions were with a fiat of the Lord of ACN manor, and without any internal ACN party election or contest. Implicitly the political "GOD" (godfather) of Yoruba Southwest that must be obeyed; what Bola Tinubu wants in Yoruba Southwest politics, Bola Tinubu gets, no questions asked. Icheoku says what manner of a man or type of country would allow or continue to tolerate this travesty in the name of democracy; except however that ABT has his own idea of what a real working democracy should and ought to be and unfortunately, many Nigerian politicians agree with him? According to Bola Tinubu's school of political thought, any democracy must and should have an overall de-facto henchman (CEO) with power to select, appoint and remove "elected" officials including the governor, senators, congressmen/women, state assembly members etc; and irrespective of the process that brought them to power which in Yoruba land is usually Ahmed Bola Tinubu. Bola Tinubu have successfully imposed himself as the CEO of ACN and in Yoruba Southwest politics, has dutifully stamped his authority running that part of Nigeria as he deems fit. 

Icheoku says since what is going on politically in Bola Tinubu controlled Yoruba Southwest of Nigeria does not fit the Greek definition of democracy, we are forced to look inwards to see if we could come up with an appropriate and more apposite name for it. After an extensive, exhaustive research, Icheoku has arrived at a name to properly define and put in context, the audacious overrun of Yoruba-land politics by just one single man, Ahmed Bola Tinubu. Icheoku says "TINUBU-OCRACY - a government of Bola Tinubu and the people, for Bola Tinubu and the people and by persons single-handedly selected and tele-guided by Ahmed Bola Tinubu", is rather a perfect name for the travesty masquerading as democracy in Yorubaland. Unfortunately too, people like Wole Soyinka and other otherwise loquacious and boisterous claimants of the Yoruba pedigree have remained quiet and taciturn, having been completely intimidated by ABT, while ABT runs amok with Yoruba land politics. Icheoku says not a whiff of condemnation or call of Bola Tinubu to order or at least cautioning of Bola Tinubu to minimize his greedy appetite for power and penchant for coveting resources which belong to the entire general populace of Yoruba land. But hey, it is their shit, so let them lie in it as they see and deem fit.

Buhari's Spokesman Accuses ACN Governors Of Corruption,


Says They Award One Kilometer Road For One Billion Naira




General Mohammadu Buhari's Spokesman and Chieftain of the Save Nigeria Group, Mr. Yinka Odumakin has accused the Governors of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, of awarding one Kilometer of Road construction for N1 Billion.

Boasting about his knowledge of Yoruba political leaders, Odumakin said, “I can tell you authoritatively that the most dangerous and terrible tendency in Yoruba politics is the house of deceit that Tinubu represents.”

Odumakin, a spokesman for General Mohammadu Buhari, on his facebook wall recalled how he dragged former Governor Alao Akala to the Economic and Financila Crimes Commission, EFCC, for awarding One Kilometer of road for N50 Million and said most Yoruba leaders are “greedy.”

Odumakin, a spokesman for General Mohammadu Buhari said:

“Between 1999 and now, I've related at close quarters with most actors in the Yoruba political space at close quarters and I know the weaknesses and strengths of all.

“I can tell you authoritatively that the most dangerous and terrible tendency in Yoruba politics is the house of deceit that Tinubu represents.

“Only those who have sold their souls will ignore this fact ... There has never been any such greedy bunch in our nation- not under “Demo” or even PDP.

“I took Akala before EFCC in 2010 for awarding roads at N50m per km in all the LGs in Oyo state. Today your Asiwaju is collecting N1b per km across South West.

“When Tinubu turned “60″ ACN states contributed N1b for a bash, nobody tried that in Yorubaland before.

“Chief Adebanjo was chairman of AD in 1999 and not one relation of his got a ticket unlike your Tinubu whose wife is a senator, son in law a Rep, Sister in law a House member in Lagos and daughter now Iyaloja via imposition .

“Your grouse with the old men may be for reasons you have not stated but you know they are far more honorable than a million Bola Tinubu.”
