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

Icheoku agrees that Jonathan of Otuoke would soon be paraded before Nigerians in handcuffs. Olusegun Obasanjo wants this outcome and Olusegun Obasanjo will get his wish to have Jonathan "Metuh-nized" before the watching world.  Former President Goodluck Jonathan will be arrested and paraded before Nigerians in handcuffs as the man who presided over the biggest bazaar that ever took place in Nigeria. 

A president under whose watch, buzzards feasted heavily on Nigeria's commonwealth while he shivered fearfully in one corner, too afraid to raise a cautionary voice. Icheoku says if and when this happens, the skies will not cave in; but it will be hailed by millions of Nigerians who were disappointed by the failed promised breath of fresh air. They will in unison rejoice that finally a King that does not know Joseph has ascended the throne and has now called for the rendering of account. At worse, Nigerians will call for the arrest too, of Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida, the precedent of arresting a president having then been set. It is unthinkable and regrettable that a president who lied that his government has no money to construct the second River Niger bridge, would dole out so much money to his National Security Adviser to play around with as he fancied.

Icheoku is emphatic that all these present arrests and charges are but mere diversionary maneuvers, meant to present an image of all inclusive investigation, but which is only preparatory to finally going after the big gun. The goal of the current shenanigans is the eventual nabbing of the mother of corruption himself; and because the buck stopped on his desk, no other person can be more guilty of the sleaze that took place other than the man elected to guard and prevent against such. The implication being that none of those who allegedly stole to their heart's delight could have easily done so without a tacit signing off by the former president. As then chief executive of Nigeria PLC, Jonathan  cannot plead innocent or ignorant of what went down under his supposed watch; and so he will be held accountable for it as commander in chief of the corruption. 

The saga of Sambo Dasuki, Olisa Metuh and co are but mere clearing of the ground prelude to the main event when former President Jonathan will be snagged. It will definitely shake Nigerians to see their former president and possibly his wife Dame Patience, put in handcuffs, arrested and charged for corruption. Luckily Nigeria is not Gerry Rawlings' Ghana, otherwise some of these looters would summarily be executed and the heavens will not fall as a result. There will be some noise by the international community but eventually the world would move on, treating it as Nigeria's internal affairs matter.  

President Muhammadu Buhari has locked up a president and his vice president before, so locking up Jonathan will not keep him sleepless in Aso Rock. Jonathan has severally proved himself to be a small fry and nothing will happen if he is arrested and locked up; moreso the current anti-corruption atmosphere in Nigeria will support such a far-reaching action meted against a former president of Nigeria. A good precedent it will be, just like when Sani Abacha dethroned and banished former Sultan of Sokoto Ibrahim Dasuki, which no Nigerian knew before then was possible. A situational possibility which Jonathan brought unto himself by sheepishly conceding the last election without first abstracting and extracting a "get-out-of-jail" card concessions from President Muhammadi Buhari. 

Like Pa Ayo Fasami rightly analyzed and Icheoku agrees, Buhari is merely bidding this time, giving Jonathan false impression that he is safe and that all is well, before finally swooping down on him. According to the UPN second Republic House of Representative member from Ondo State, "Nigerians should not be in a hurry to see the trial of Jonathan commence. The trial of the former President Jonathan is bound to happen. How can you have security chiefs under your watch being indicted for corruption charges and you wont have to be quizzed too? President Buhari is only taking his time. It is only a matter of time. it is unfortunate that Nigeria is now being referred to as the Federal Republic of Corruption. The security chiefs couldn't have acted alone." 

Icheoku agrees with the Ondo State elder statesman that the final epilogue in the drama currently unfolding in Nigeria will be a former President Goodluck Ebelesieme Jonathan paraded before Nigerians in handcuffs. What a day it shall be and Icheoku prays it be brought forward to give Nigerians the impetus to furiously demand for the arrest and trial also of Olusegun Obasanjo, Abdulsalam Abubakar and of course the man who institutionalized corruption in Nigeria, the resident evil of Minna Hilltop, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. Who says if you live long enough you will not witness things that you never previously imagined would be possible.

Probe, jail Jonathan if found guilty – NEF
January 26, 2016 - Toluwani Eniola

The Deputy National Leader of the Northern Elders Forum, Dr. Paul Unongo, has said that former President Goodluck Jonathan should be probed over the $2.1bn arms deal.

Unongo, who was power and steel minister in the Second Republic, said the former President should be jailed if found to have corruptly enriched himself in the $2.1bn arms deal and refuses to refund his share of the loot.

Unongo, however, said the former President deserved consideration for conceding defeat in the last general elections and by helping the country to avert an impending national crisis.

These two facts, according to him, should make his punishments mild if found guilty of stolen funds.

Unongo, who spoke with our correspondent in a telephone interview on Monday, said, “There are three points to make on the arms probe. The first is that Jonathan deserves a special consideration for his contribution to democratic culture in Nigeria and for enabling us to avert a national crisis by conceding defeat during the general elections. He also mobilised support for the present government. Jonathan was great in defeat. He is a hero for doing this.

“Secondly, if the anti-graft agency can prove beyond reasonable doubt that he diverted public funds and if Jonathan agrees to return the stolen funds, he should not be humiliated but he should be given due consideration.

“Thirdly, if it is proved by a transparent process that he stole the country’s money and he refuses to return it, then the law should take its course, whether he is a former President or not. He should be prosecuted and jailed. This is important in order to serve as a deterrent to others.”

Unongo slammed Jonathan’s advisers who have been justifying their roles in the alleged diversion of the arms funds based on the excuse that they acted under instructions from the Presidency.

He said Jonathan’s advisers should be held liable for their actions because they had the opportunity to advise the President against any form of illegality.

According to him, Jonathan’s advisers and ministers who were uncomfortable with his style of governance should have resigned their appointments if the President did not follow their advice.

“I was a minister in this country and that did not stop me from speaking the truth to the President. Jonathan’s advisers who are claiming they acted under instructions to justify their alleged theft are lying.

“Jonathan paid them to advise him so they are liable for their actions. If you advised Jonathan rightly and he said no, you should have resigned your appointment,” he stressed.

The former minister also added that the Federal Government had not ordered the arrest of Jonathan because the government ‘was trying to be careful and abide by the dictates of the law in order not to be seen as dictatorial’.

He said, “I think President Buhari is trying to be careful in not summoning Jonathan so far. I don’t believe there was an agreement President Buhari had not to probe Jonathan as being reported.”
