WIKE'S HONOR OF GOWON, MISGUIDED AND IMBECILIC.
Icheoku says the recent honoring of the genocidal Yakubu Jackal Gowon by Rivers States Governor Nyesom Wike, whereby he renamed a street and a stadium after Gowon, is most regrettable. It is a very pathetic move, made by an unthinking buffoon, who is either very ignorant of history or did not give a damn nor care enough to understand the ramifications of his action. How could any sane man honor a man who caused so much pain and sorrow to a people, whose roots and names, Governor Wike shares; admitted that he removed the "N" in his last name and instead of "Nwike", settled for "Wike"? Icheoku asks how could a man, who is supposedly acquiesced of the dark place reserved for Yakubu Gowon among the people formerly of Biafra, consider honoring such a vampire who drove utmost joy in watching millions of Biafran women and children starved to death?
How could any God-fearing man honor Yakubu Gowon after the depravity that was his twenty pounds payment to returning Biafrans despite whatever they previously had in their bank accounts? How could any man who does not think through his anus, ever consider honoring a bloodhound like Yakubu Gowon who declared no victor and no vanquished, yet treated returning Biafrans in this manner? The same wild dog bandied the sloganeering three Rs of reconciliation, rehabilitation and reconstruction; but went on to implement his reconstruction in Lagos, which did not witness the war pillaging; instead of the theatre of the war that was the Southeast? This is the man Nyesom Wike honored and Icheoku asks for what or is Wike telling all those hurt by Gowon to go fuck themselves?
Icheoku decries this as indeed regrettable that the fat thuggish man in Rivers State's government house PortHarcourt did not think through his action, otherwise he would have seized himself of its lack of merit. Icheoku queries, where else in Nigeria has that name Yakubu Gowon been associated with anything joyful or worth celebrating? What is there to celebrate of such an animal, who after causing all those deaths in Biafra, went ahead to plan a coup that killed Muritala Mohammed? A Gowon, who but for President Shehu Shagari's amnesty would still have remained a persona non grata in Nigeria, exiled in the United Kingdom. But no, Nyesom Wike wants some cheap publicity and he renamed old Aba Road as well as former Liberation Stadium after this hyena.
Icheoku hereby categorically condemn the action of Governor Nyesom Wike as very insensitive and not carefully thought through. How does Wike reconcile his action to the over three million Biafran lives took by Yakubu Gowon? So what if Gowon created Rivers States which was not out of his love for the people of Ikwerre but done in his failed attempt to box in and completely emasculate Ndigbo and cut them completely off from the Atlantic Ocean, as a land locked entity. But Gowon forgot that Biafra was not just only an Igbo effort as Philip Effiong was not Igbo, neither were other minorities of the then Eastern region who participated in the Biafran effort of self determination. Hopefully a more thinking governor would some day emerge in Rivers State to redress this slap on the face and erase this Berom jackal's name from the two landmarks. Governor Nyesom Wike, Icheoku says, you are a disgrace and disappointment to Biafra and you should be ashamed of your deplorable action.
