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.


ICHEOKU says in unison, Biafrans stretch out their hands in demand of freedom to self govern themselves. ICHEOKU says it is every man's right to self governance and in a Biafran Nation we stand. Give us Biafra - BIAEXIT. Ekene. Shalom. Salute.


ICHEOKU says they can break the body but they can never overwhelm the soul and the spirit lives on until victory is achieved. On this day May 30th, survivors of that pogrom supervised by the genocidal maniac Yakubu Jackal Gowon and their descendants show immense gratitude to those who fought to preserve our identity as an indigenous people; as well as all those who paid the supreme sacrifice that we may live freely as Indegenious People of Biafra . ICHEOKU says the nation of Biafra is proud for what you accomplished and on this day pays their gratitude. Aluta Continua !


"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 if your marriage is not working optimally as you had expected, have you thought about upgrading it? Have you given it a serious thought that it is possibly not working properly because what obtained in the days of your grandfather and grandmother is no longer applicable today? Are you still stuck in the last version Marriage 1.0 or have you upgraded to the new version Marriage 2.0 and if not, why not? Have you considered that possibly all your current marital difficulties may be as a result of your marriage being infected by bugs and viruses, which might be fixed with a simple patch embedded in version Marriage 2.0. 

If you are still stuck with the old ways your parents did things years ago, as handed down by their forebears; and have not woken up to the new realities that today's marriage is no longer amenable to certain things that worked yesterday, what is your problem? If your mother stayed at home while raising you and your siblings, manning (womanning) the domestic department, is your wife presently working and bringing home some bacon too? If your father came home to a well kept home, with food ready to eat; do you expect your wife to also do as your mother did while also working when your mother never worked but remained a stay at home mother throughout? Do you help out with some domestic chores or are you so old fashioned and stuck up in a husbandry stratosphere, expecting your wife to come home from her job and still be the only one running around the kitchen and tidying up the place and still get things done on time and efficiently? 

Icheoku says if you want your wife to be like your mother, are you also prepared to be like your father? Are you ready to provide all her reasonable needs as well as that of your children; and thereafter earn the right to the title of man of the house, with vested rights and privileges as well as benefits? Remember that with every right comes accompanying obligation; and with every privilege comes a duty. So if you are not prepared to make that trade off, then do not expect anything comparable to what your father got and learn to curb your enthusiasm. Always advice yourself properly that the fact of your being married does not automatically confer or beget you with everything your hearts desires and which your mouth commands. This is 2016 and things are no longer what they used to be and demands that you change and adjust accordingly.

Do you belong to the old school of marriage which believes that marriage is a relationship of master and his lady; where one party "husbands" the other party, while the other party merely "wifes" only the home front with unquestionable obedience to the wishes of her master? Or are you of the new school which sees marriage as a partnership relationship of co-equals with corresponding duties, rights and obligations? Aphoristically speaking, do you see marriage as two people riding on a horse with one person sitting behind the other; or as two people in a convertible sitting side by side with no room for third parties? Understanding that someone is still on the steering wheel but does not sit any farther from the co-passenger on the other seat. It is a tandem, co-equals with an alter-ego just for purposes of a seamless navigation. 

Icheoku says how you see your marriage and the mindset with which you approach it, actually determines how much happiness you will mine from it. It also indicates which school of marriage you belong to; and whether or not your marriage is of the old version Marriage 1.0 or has been since upgraded to version Marriage 2.0

Icheoku says if you have someone else as a best friend and not your spouse or a closest confidant who is not your spouse, then not only do you not have a right spouse but you are also still stuck with the old version Marriage 1.0 and you need an upgrade. If your spouse is not your closet confidant, the repository of your secrets, your clearing house, the bedrock of your existence and the center upon which your universe revolves, then you are probably still stuck in the outdated version Marriage 1.0 and need to urgently upgrade. Probe yourself to find out if you have "a spouse" or "the spouse"; as this goes a long way in determining the type of relationship you have with your significant other. 

If peradventure, you see your spouse as just "a husband" or "just a wife", as many would sometimes erroneously refer to their spouses without understanding the ramifications and implications, then you do not have yourself the enviable companionship necessary for version Marriage 2.0 and therefore cannot enjoy its benefits without an upgrade. If you are always thinking about a third party while sharing private moments with your putative spouse, then something is not kosher with your marital situation and you should seriously consider  rebranding or giving it a total makeover. If someone else or something else is more important to you than your spouse or is always given more attention or priority over your spouse; or someone else's matter is treated with speedier dispatch than your spouse's, then be assured that you do not have the right spouse and therefore you should consider either rebooting your marriage or  upgrading it or even think about a total do over. But please whatever happens, do not die in silence or fear of society's chastisement as you have one life to life, so live it. Salute.
