PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS DON'T PUSH ME.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS 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

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

"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)


ONLY THE POOR WISH THEY HAD STUFF?

“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.

NDIGBO ARE SO COMPLETELY MARGINALIZED, IT IS MADDENING?

Icheoku says for the first in the history of politics in Nigeria, the Igbo nation has been completely and totally shut out and consigned into the cold doldrums of irrelevance in Nigeria political affairs? Today Ndigbo are lost, wandering without a shepherd, in the vast wilderness that is Nigerian politics and as a result, nobody fights for what belong to them any longer. An otherwise formerly vibrant political group, but who, due to the vacuousness of a few presently masquerading as their leaders but who suffer the mentality of the vanquished, has been left out of contention in Nigeria political affairs. Currently Ndigbo are treated with such levity and as if they don't matter at all and anymore in charting the destiny of Nigeria in which they are fellow stakeholders? Ndigbo are compelled to fruitlessly beg for practically everything and anything they NEED, including a bridge, things which other nationalities in Nigeria get for granted? Recall that the same Jonathan administration has since completed a bridge over River Benue for Kogi/Nasarawa people, but River Niger..........???????

Icheoku queries why should a bona fide member and co-owner of something has to first beg other equally co-stakeholders for their own share of the general pie? Something does not sit well with this picture and Ndigbo has to wake up and forcefully demand as of right what is rightfully theirs. The great ZIk and Owelle of Onitsha, Timber and caliber KO Mbadiwe, Iheonukara Mike Okpara, Akanu Ibiam, Dennis Osadabey, Mbanefo, CC Onoh, Mbazulike Amechi, Nwafor Orizu, Dee Sam Mbakwe and other Igbo champions of the yore, some of who must be turning in their graves and wondering what went wrong with Igbo feistiness and assertiveness in Nigeria? How could Ndigbo stand aloof and watch as other tribes in Nigeria appropriate for themselves alone all that they collectively own together? Icheoku refuses to believe or blame it on the Biafran war of forty something odd years ago and says this got to stop. Why are Igbos playing inferior to other tribal nations in Nigeria; why? why? why, Ndigbo why? 

The worse of it all is that other Nigerians including minorities are occupying the high table of Nigeria with Ndigbo holding the beggarly plate at the floor and tearfully begging to be given even some morsel from their feast? But what do they do in response, they are continuously ignoring Ndigbo and dictating what to hand to them as if Ndigbo are no longer a congruent part of the entity called Nigeria? If these other Nigerians have peradventure severed Ndigbo from Nigeria, let them be courageous enough to voice it out and let Ndigbo know they no longer belong to Nigeria; but this impetuous marginalization of Ndigbo cannot go on or remain unchallenged forever. Icheoku says if this state of complete isolation is not perturbing any other Igbo person, it perturbs Icheoku; and Icheoku adds that any unperturbed Igbo person is not worthy of the Igbo semen and ova that beget him or her and should hide his face in utter shame. Why must this situation be allowed to continue, as this people, in defiance of Dee Sam Mbakwe caution, continues to eat the fish which belongs to the man still awake without being asked why? Please can someone tell Icheoku it is not about time, Ndigbo man up and stand up for their rights in Nigeria? 

How a whole nation of Ndigbo, a very prominent leg of the tripod that holds up Nigeria together, could be so completely ousted from its political affairs, without any consequence, still forces Icheoku into stupid stupor? How could the country still stand and function on only two legs when the third has been thus severed, discarded and practically thrown away? Icheoku laments that for the first time in the history of Nigeria's self governance, two major political parties, PDP and APC, are operating seamlessly without any Igbo person in any key office or position? Both parties'  presidency (candidate), vice presidency (candidacy), party chairman, party secretary as well as the other main party leadership position, chairman of board of trustees, are held by none Igbo people? So thus marginalized and locked out, what then is the relevance of Ndigbo in continuing the membership of the Nigerian state, when they are not needed and do not matter any longer and in such a way that the ship of the state could still be so safely steered without them in the engine room? 

Icheoku does not know about the rest of other Igbo people but this crass attitudinal indifference by these other Nigerians to the plight and concerns of Ndigbo is surely one heck of concern to Icheoku and should be for any true son or daughter of Igboland. Icheoku wonders how did things get so bad for Ndigbo in Nigeria? When Icheoku was beginning to conclude that it is only the Jonathan administration and his PDP that has so marginalized Ndigbo in every manner and facet in Nigeria and for the very first time in Nigeria, here comes the APC, equally telling Ndigbo that they don't matter in Nigeria, not anymore? The APC presidential candidate is a Northern, their vice presidential candidate is potentially South-westerner, their party chairman is a minority South-south, their party secretary is a Northerner, their chairman of board of trustees is a North-central and their spokesman is a North-central too? So where does this arrangement leave Ndigbo? Please Icheoku need answers if you have got one.

How have the mighty Ndigbo fallen? How did the once beautiful bride of Nigerian politics, whom everyone and every political party in Nigeria once sought after, including Ndigbo hater-in-chief Obafemi Awolowo, come to this inconsequential grinding halt in Nigerian politics. How did Ndigbo hit rock-bottom in Nigeria politics? Something has definitely terribly gone wrong in Nigeria and particularly in Ndigbo nation, that such thumbing in the face would go on thus far without any serious challenge or even total  confrontation. It appears the Biafran war defeat did not actually come with the end of hostilities in 1970; it seems the final "defeat or routing" of Biafrans suddenly came now under the cunning fox that is President Goodluck Jonathan? Not even under the other Igbo-hater Baba Iyabo has Ndigbo had it this badly; otherwise how does anyone try to fathom an explanation for the hands which Jonathan has dealt Ndigbo since he came to power, largely with the help of Ndigbo bloc-vote. 

Icheoku says for the first time in Nigeria history and under President Jonathan's watch, no Igbo person is occupying any of the office of the presidency, vice presidency, speaker of the house, senate president, chief justice of the federation, attorney general, army chief, police chief, navy chief, internal affairs minister, chairman joint chief of staff, customs chief, immigration chief, cbn governor, ports authority chairman, railway chairman, nnpc group managing director, petroleum minister or any other highly sensitive and/or very lucrative position in the government. To add insult to injury, the same foxy Jonathan, cleverly looked the other way as no Igbo person was made either the chairman or secretary of his political party, the PDP; yet some town criers want Ndigbo to believe that this very Jonathan's love for Ndigbo is akin to biblical David's?  Icheoku says "am losing my mind thinking about "this kind of love as I never see am oo." Please anybody who knows Jonathan should tell him that Ndigbo are complaining bitterly and loudly too and might take vengeance with their votes come 2015, Buhari or no Buhari.
