"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)


“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.

Icheoku says when one thinks he has heard it all from Buhari, the veteran presidential candidate, now on his fourth attempt to hoodwink Nigerians and sneak back into Aso Rock, has thrown the mother of all statements. Muhammadu Buhari said he will abolish 'QUOTA SYSTEM' and 'FEDERAL CHARACTER' policies of the Federal Government of  Nigeria! Icheoku says Nigerians should either believe this guy at the pain of a future disappointment or just treat it for what it is - another blow hot political pandering of a desperate politician? Apparently, to say that Buhari is desperate for the office is understating his near exasperation as the man from Daura is near psychotic in his desire to re-assume the presidency of Nigeria. As a result, whatever he could say or do that brings Aso Rock's doorway nearer, is a good gambit and the man is deploying them in quantum-loads. 

Muhammadu Buhari is now morphing into everything and anything to everybody depending on what moves the needle of their politics. Just tell Buhari what it is about him that you disagree with or which you are against and Buhari will magically appear on its opposite side as its campaigner and advocate in chief? Such has become his forte these days that the proverbial throwing of everything including the kitchen sink is now his strategy in order to sway Nigerians' opinion to swing favorably towards him. Icheoku asks should such a man be trusted and why should Nigerians believe him that he is going to follow through with all these promises when it is legendary that he listens to no one? Who is going to hold him accountable if he does not follow through since he will not be seeking a reelection as promised and therefore has no incentive to do the promised in order to secure a second term? But who is even trusting that an elected Buhari would honor his promised one term only in office, after all he did not keep his promise not to run for office again? 

Icheoku says Buhari is deploying various strategies to help him get him elected. It is a trait common with the  Hausa/Fulani - deploying cheating, lying, deceiving, pretending,  maiming and even killing in order to achieve an objective. Now to the litany of promises and flip flopping of Buhari thus far. To those anti-coup Nigerians who stand unshakably against his candidacy because of his overthrow of President Shehu Shagari's democratically elected government, Buhari in currying their favor, completely disassociated himself from the coup and instead blamed Ibrahim Babangida and Sani Abacha for the putsch?  According to his tale, after the boys risked their necks to pull off the criminal act of a military coup de tat, they collectively "stepped aside" for him to reap where he did not sow? Icheoku says believe that on your own sanity question.  To those Nigerians who said he was too despotic, he said, hell no, it was my second in command Tunde Idiagbon who was an unrepentant viciousness incarnate. Unfortunately Idiagbon, who was poisoned in Aso Rock, is no longer alive to defend himself; but anyone believing this Buhari's tale, must first have to check his head for some misfiring neurons. 

To those Nigerians who assailed him for murdering those three innocent Nigerians based on a retroactive death decree, Buhari denied complicity and indeed blamed Supreme Military Council for insisting that those Nigerians be murdered? Icheoku says really? To those Nigerians who blamed Buhari for decree 4 and for the imprisonment of Tunde Thompson and Nduka Irabor, Buhari said his government was only protecting civil servants in order to create a conducive atmosphere for them to function properly? Icheoku says what a tale by the moonlight except that Nduka Irabor and Tunde Thompson seem to have been 'settled', the Nigerian way; as they have maintained sealed lips on the Buhari question thus far. 

Muhammadu Buhari also denied that he is not an Islamic fanatical zealot by pointing at Chuba Okadigbo, Edwin Umezoke and Pastor Tunde Bakare as all Christians he has ran for office of the presidency with over the years? Except that he did not go further to explain why he supported the introduction of SHARIA in Northwestern Nigeria and similarly prohibited the drinking of beer before 5.00pm during his first time in power throughout Nigeria including Christian Southern Nigeria? Buhari has also not explained why he forced his wife into a life in Purdah as Nigerians wonder in the event of his win, who will serve as Nigeria's First Lady, unless he plans to also proscribe the office? 

Now to the latest of his bombshell, meant as red meat for all those overachieving Nigerians who are anti quota system and federal character, Buhari promised to go hard on those almajiris Northerners who are demanding equal opportunity when they are not as qualified? Icheoku says to Buhari, please tell that to the marines as we are not buying into the tale and anyone who believes that Buhari will see this promise through might as well believe in snake oil salesmen. Listen to Muhammadu Buhari on the issue of quota system and federal character catchment policy of the Federal Government of Nigeria. Policies which routinely sacrifices merit on the alter of trying to carry Northerners along, resulting in over qualified Southern students not getting placements in Universities and colleges in order to make room for mediocre Northern students and which deny appointments to over qualified Southerners for beginner Northerners. Hear Muhammdu Buhari now in his own words:-

"I think it is important in the federation when you come to the centre, it is better for people to feel that they too are participating at the centre. But it must not be at the expense of standards. Any geopolitical zone or state, if they want their people to participate at the centre, must ensure they can compete professionally. You can't take somebody who did not go to school or who said he went to the university but cannot write a two-page memo, to become a permanent secretary. How will he do it? How can he articulate policies that will be taken to executive council to be debated by ministers? We really have a problem. We have to remove sentiments and not excite or provoke our constituencies that they have to participate. You can only participate if you develop the capacity to participate." - Muhammadu Buhari, APC Presidential candidate contender (The Cable Interview).

Icheoku says those are Buhari's own exact words as he claims he will stop unqualified and under qualified, as well as incompetent Hausa/Fulani Northerners from getting special 'handicapped' treatment in Nigeria. By this, Buhari has promised to ban the skewed 'quota system and federal character' policies and replace it with an all comers, open season, qualified, competency and ability test. Icheoku says of all that Buhari has so far said and promised, this sounds most far reaching and encouraging; except that in silly season of politics, politicians would promise to even raise one's dead mother in order to get one's vote. Nigerians, like every other peoples in other democracies know better that politicians, the lying scoundrels of society they are, readily forget they ever made some promises once the election has come and gone until the next episode. 

Icheoku says to hell with Buhari and his truckload of promises as his second coming can only drag Nigerians thirty something odd years back. Who wants Nigeria to go back to the time when there was still 'Union of Socialists Soviet Republics; who wants to continue the ding dong one step forward, two steps backwards that has been Nigeria's modus operandi for sometime? Definitely not Icheoku and not anyone seriously interested in a new dawn for Nigeria. Nigerians please reject Buhari and let Bola Tinubu know that Nigerians do not want a Buhari flying the APC presidential candidate flag this 2015.
