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 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.


"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.



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


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.


"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.


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.

"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


“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


"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)

Press conference by APC chairman John Odigie Oyegun, Abuja, Wednesday, July 16th 2014 (attached as comment) - a response.

Icheoku says in the selective-amnesia pattern that is the trick of trade of very deceitful people, of remembering ONLY what they choose to remember, this man has forgotten how he was imposed on the APC by Ahmed Bola Tinubu's fiat? Instead, here he is, unabashedly, calling President Jonathan a dictator while feigning ignorance that the man he accepted the gift of APC chairmanship from is not a DEMOCRAT? Icheoku is baffled at how a man who parades himself as a man of God, Pastor Oyegun, could so vilely complain about a speck in another man's eye while ignoring the Iroko log in his own eye? According to this man, Bola Tinubu, the man who OWNS, OPERATES and DICTATES for everyone in APC is not a dictator but Jonathan is? Icheoku says if Jonathan is the face of dictatorship, then every country in the world that has seen and known dictatorship, including Nigeria during the heinous military regimes as well as the last Ota deity's regime (1999 - 2003), must demand an apology from the APC Chairman Pastor John Odigie-Oyegun for ridiculing their horrific and harried experience. 

Further, in the usual characteristics of the Almajiris Peoples Congress, typified by the now impeached Muritala Nyako's malicious accusation that President Jonathan is levying genocide on Northerners, Pastor Oyegun is now making another unfounded and unsubstantiated allegation against the president, of using financial inducements, running into several billions, to achieve the outcome that was Adamawa State Governor Nyako's impeachment? Icheoku says it is a trite rule of law that he who alleges something as a fact has the onus of proving or establishing the alleged; and we hereby call on Pastor Oyegun to produce irrefutable evidence of this financial inducement or eat his shoes in shame for deliberately misinforming his "flock" and trying to mislead them. Unfortunately this pastor forgot what the Lord said concerning intentionally misleading a people that looks upon certain persons as their guide, that it is preferable for such persons that a grinding stone be tied on their neck and weighted down the lake. 

Responding to another frivolous accusation of Pastor Oyegun, Icheoku says if any person or party is destroying or trying to destroy Nigeria, it must be the Janjaweed ideology party and its dictators that does not see anything wrong in imposing persons on the party as well as on their controlled states' offices? Icheoku says the destructive element in Nigeria is the Almajiris Peoples Congress that is malevolently scheming to field two MUSLIM presidential and vice presidential candidates in a pluralistic secular society like Nigeria. Icheoku is emphatic that it is the Bola Tinubu's owned and financed party, APC, which is crying fire in a movie theater and crying wolf where there is a mere sparrow. Icheoku says if anyone is trying to rain havoc on Nigeria, it is APC's Buhari who promised and is relentlessly carrying out his threat, by proxy of Boko Haram, to make Nigeria ungovernable. Yes, you heard Icheoku right - the destructive forces trying to pull the Nigerian house down is the APC and its dictatorship. Icheoku says the APC is what is trying, albeit fruitlessly, to throw spanner into the works that is Nigeria marching on. So Pastor Oyegun must reverse gears and rather look inwards to find the Grinch that is trying to steal Nigeria's joy. 

Pastor Oyegun finds fault in the government's adequately securing an election through the use of the military, so that the electorates could freely express their preferences; and this rather major commendable feat by a government too often known for its sloppiness, is perfidious in the judgment of Pastor Oyegun? Icheoku says if so empowering the people to freely exercise their right to vote and ensuring that no eligible voter is disenfranchised by intimidation of thugs and through election fraud is what perfidy looks like, then hell has no utility again and deserves to be shut and closed down. Icheoku says he who has nothing to hide is never afraid nor does he run away from the police or complain and protest when security agents are around. Therefore the only deductible reason why the APC is complaining about the high security presence in the last Ekiti State's election would be that it forestalled all their rigging plans and eventually produced the result witnessed. Icheoku recalls that Bola Tinubu had made a "rig and roast" threat before the said election and no responsible government, anywhere, would like to see any of her citizen roasted just because an election was rigged. So Aso Rock did the "needful" to prevent rigging and guaranteed that no one roasted; YET instead of commending this harm-free and zero-death election, Pastor Oyegun is complaining that security for the election was too much? Icheoku says please give me a break Mr Pastor. 

Icheoku says Pastor Oyegun's questioning the integrity of the armed forces is one such misdirected step taken too far that needs to be retracted. Irrespective of partisanship or other loyalty and ideological differences - whether Janjaweed or Western, anyone can say whatever they want BUT questioning the integrity of the Nigerian armed forces is an unacceptable step into a no go area. Icheoku maintains that the Nigerian armed forces is still very nationalistic; that the cord holding them as a force of one is still in intact and very strong, otherwise the hump-dumpty that is Nigeria would have since gone into history. So Pastor Oyegun ought to apologize to these uniformed men and women for causing to their unity, this untoward violence; and must subsequently watch such his utterances so that he does not talk himself into a dangerous corner from which an extraction might prove very difficult, if not impossible. 

In conclusion, Icheoku bemoans the fate that has befallen this APC whose marriage to Nigerians have apparently ended ever before the honeymoon was over. If APC was a pregnancy, it would be ectopic and qualified for an urgent abortion and might as well have since been aborted. Their planned voyage is now moribund with their marooned ship fast decelerating to the bottom of the ocean  Were it a flight, it did not take off as it sputtered and nose-dived into its grave yard. Their so many missteps, series of unguarded statements and their Tasmanian devil-like virulent attacks on even the mundane and intangibles, have left Nigerians wondering what it was they wanted to embrace in the first place? If this is what opposition party looks like, then may the PDP stand unopposed, for crying out loud. How can a party that cannot organize themselves and be harmonious in articulating their Marshal Plans for Nigeria organize Nigeria? Such risk is rather too risky for Nigerians to blazingly walk themselves into and it could be that Nigerians have already decided that the devil they know is better than the pretentious saint they are bewilder at its actions and utterances thus far? Or what word is it again they have in their Islamic vocabulary for saint?  

Of late the APC seems to have been outgunned and outfoxed by the PDP as they now appear to chase after only the dust of a zoomed meteorite PDP. In Ekiti they did not know what hit them and belatedly now threatens to go to court after the fact; ditto in Adamawa with Nyako's stagecraft of an impeachment. Icheoku believes that the APC would still be in their reactionary mode to PDP's pace-setting the agenda and still huffing and puffing about how they will respond long after the 2015 elections are won and lost. But what level of cohesion does anyone expect from a party that is run by dictators where the majority of its disenfranchised members are bitterly complaining and working to sabotage their own party as a result in protest? Icheoku is of the view that morals is very low among APC membership and nothing good ever comes out of a demoralized or ill-motivated lot. This cancerous lethargy that has set in among APC party members is the greatest threat facing the Almajiris Peoples Congress and without retooling, their dictators can complain all they want until the cows come home and will not see a c-change in their fortunes. Not that Icheoku cares anyway. To Pastor John Odigie Oyegun, Icheoku says instead of hollering and chasing shadows or propounding nonsensical fantasies as to the root cause of the problems of the now flightless APC, just look in the mirror and you will see Bola Tinubu and John Oyegun, interchangeably, morphing into one another. This is the root cause of the nearly imploding APC - DICTATORSHIP. It melts away party loyalty since party members are asking themselves what is in it for them and saying that "we do not have inheritance in the house of Bola Tinubu, to our tenets Oh APC members," GET IT, Pastor! 

Disclaimer: - Icheoku is not a member of the PDP nor a fan of President Jonathan Goodluck. But let the truth be told, this particular brand of APC is not good for Nigeria and it is not also good for any Nigerian. This is the only reason we do what we do at Icheoku; and to help save Nigeria a worse evil. That is what drives our passion. The greedy Bola Tinubu is not a democrat but is merely using or trying to use the machinery of the APC as a means to an end and therefore must be STOPPED.
