"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 NO! In view of the manner Ahmed Bola Tinubu has successfully hijacked all the instrumentality and functionalities of the APC, imposing only those he personally wanted unto the party's various offices as well as hand-picking those standing for 2015 general election against the other party, PDP; it is an anomaly to suggest that the APC is a political party strictly called and not a mere gathering of the flock with their shepherd, Bola Tinubu, corralling them?  Icheoku really is at a loss how any person in APC could sincerely look Nigerians in the eyes and claim to be a member of a political party so called, when he or she has no say nor voice, talkless of an opinion on how things are done in the party. How can any of these people, especially  the supposed party honchos, people like the Fasholas, the Atikus, the Rotimi Amaechis, the Sarakis as well as other APC governors, still pretend to be bona fide members of a political party when they cannot voice an opinion nor decent or counter-argue what their overall boss decrees? How can anyone truthfully say that the dictates of one man qualifies a party as a political party? Where is the internal democracy is such an arrangement?

It is on record how Bola Tinubu forced out Momodu Sheriff from the party; ditto Tom Ikimi after the said Ikimi labored in vain clobbering the APC together; then he imposed John Odigie Oyegun on the party as his preferred chairman; then he took Abubakar Atiku's money and dumped him; he ordered the party to ensure that Muhammadu Buhari gets the ticket as the party's presidential candidate and it was done; then he picked Ambode as candidate for Lagos State governorship regardless of what the incumbent Governor Fashola said or thought; and finally he cemented his vice hold on the party by equally imposing his candidate of choice on Buhari as his running mate. Icheoku asks based on these available evidence of just one man determining and deciding the fortunes of anyone and everyone in the APC, is it fair to still ascribe to the APC the innate quality of being a political party in the strict sense of it? Icheoku asks would it be out of place to canvass for a name change and for the name TInubu, to become a prefix of the APC by changing it to read 'TAPC -  "Tinubu's All Progressive Congress?" 

The worst of these humbled pies who are now mortally traumatized in their standing before the people of Nigeria, as a result of Bola Tinubu's humiliating behavior, are those loud mouth APC governors who find pleasure in attacking President Jonathan but who quickly dissolves into shivering moles with quavering mouths and trembling hands whenever their Lord of the Manor Bola Tinubu shows up. Icheoku asks how can any sane governor allow himself to be so intimidated by another governor, especially an ex-governor for that matter; yet when that governor is not respectful of the president of the country? Certain things indeed does not usually make sense including the present fact of living in trepidation and in bondage of Bola Tinubu by these APC governors? A matter made worse because these humiliated APC governors, none of which was considered fit and qualified enough by Bola Tinubu to be nominated a vice presidential candidate of the party, are still loyal to Bola Tinubu and continuously stand at attention to do his bidding and merely waiting for his command. Icheoku says such slavish servitude is indeed mind boggling and outrightly befuddling. 

May be it is just an ego thing, but Icheoku would rather just remain a respectful governor than to descend into such decrepitude cesspool in the worship of an ex-governor in order to put a facade of pretended political relevance. But hey, they are not Icheoku and Icheoku is not them; but it is safe to say that these APC governors are insanely stupid especially after the vote of no confidence Bola Tinubu passed on them that was the selection of Yemi Osibanjo as the vice presidential candidate of the party? So query, if their slavish-worship of Bola Tinubu thus far have not put them in his good books yet, why then continue? Why continue to trod the path of second-class inferior governors, instead of becoming more assertive in the face of the little man Bola Tinubu? Why don't these governors man up and stand up against Bola Tinubu's continued imposition of his will on them and their party?  It is indeed quite unfortunate  what the APC has become - just a one-man operation; but hey, if you are Bola Tinubu, why not? Icheoku says instead of insisting on internal democracy in the APC,  members of the party have allowed themselves to become so beholden to just one man, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, who dictates to everyone in the party in a cleverly crafted system of governance known  as Tinubuocracy? 

Icheoku says imagine then what would become of Nigeria in the unfortunate event this lone hijacker, successfully, also hijacks the Nigerian state? Imagine a situation where nothing flies up or down in Nigeria except Bola TInubu says so? Imagine where nothing is built or constructed in Nigeria without Bola Tinubu gets his ten percent? Imagine where nobody gets appointed into any position unless Bola Tinubu signs off on the candidate? Imagine where even the president cannot sign the country's budget into law without first including a Bola Tinubu's first drawing rights in the constitution? There are simply so many imagines of havoc, which an overbearing Bola Tinubu could and would inflict on the country that Icheoku is having a nightmare, wide awake in the afternoon, just thinking about it. The thought alone is such that sends spasmodic shudders to the spine and then ask yourself, the kind of  cataclysmic convulsion its actuality will cascade on Nigerians. APC is not a political party and its Bola Tinubu has become a freight train without brakes, bulldozing anything and anyone on his way and absolute power is not what a democratic Nigeria needs at this period. Therefore, Icheoku entreats and begs dear God, to please defer a Bola Tinubu's hostile take-over of Nigeria from ever materializing or to such an infinite future date of NEVER.
