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.

PLEASE WORLD: GIVE US BIAFRA

PLEASE WORLD: GIVE US BIAFRA
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.

HAPPY BIAFRAN MEMORIAL DAY MAY 30TH.

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 !

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.

MARRIAGE AND THE WHAT PEOPLE WILL SAY INHIBITING FACTOR - ALBINUS CHIEDU

A major puncturing factor to the joy of many marriages today is the four-word phrase: “What people will say?” Because of this phrase, certain things that you ought to do to boost your marriage, strengthen bonding in your marital rela­tionship and increase your joy, are deliberately not done. 

You find a lady to marry. She is the love of your life. You love each other. Because of her occupational status, she has a car, house and some other assets that you do not have. You now feel that ‘if I marry her, people will say it is because of her wealth’. Now, you leave her and eventually marry someone that is wired for another man. Then, you begin to endure marriage instead of enjoying it. 

There are marriages where elements of romance are missing just because one or both parties are afraid of what people will say. “What will people say if I drive my wife in a car to a destination, alight quickly from the driver’s seat and rush to open the door for my wife like her employed driver? What will they say if I am taking a walk with my spouse and I hold him or her in a romantic manner? What will they say if I am the one cuddling my baby or bathing the child in public while my wife looks on? Will they not call me ‘woman wrapper?’ 

You have a wife who is an accountant by profession and prudent with spending, in contrast to you, a wasteful and careless spender. You know that if you hand over the family financial management to her, your family finance will improve and fami­ly business will grow. But you are finding it difficult to do that. Now, there has been financial and economic stagnation since you both officially became a couple. How will God’s plan for this marriage manifest? Ex­cept you call the bluff of what people will say. You are even accusing witches for your situ­ation instead of facing reality. 

You have a fiancée and you both have remained in pre-marital status for years, sim­ply because of what people will say if you do not throw a lavish wedding ceremony like so and so person. What will they say if you guys simply walk up to your clergyman or court registry with your family representative(s) as witness(es), take the marital vow and move forward with your life? They will say you did a poor man’s wedding. Right? 

You have money to buy a car but you have deliberately delayed purchasing one for your family. Why? Your wife can drive but be­cause of your job schedule and other factors  you have not been able to learn how to drive. ‘What will people say if I buy a car and my wife is the one always on the steer­ing during outings? 

You are presiding over a public meeting and your wife is among discussants. During discussions, she suggests an idea which happens to be superior to an idea that you earli­er tabled. Because the suggestion came from your wife, you jettison the suggestion. ‘What will people say if I implement what my wife has suggested? Won’t they say she is the one that dictates what I do?’ 

Maybe your wife is yet to conceive, years after marriage despite her good character as a person. You are considering going for an­other wife because of what people will say. Maybe also, you have had just one child for a long time and you are considering another woman for the purpose of having anoth­er child so that they will not say that you are infertile. You now want to break your mar­riage covenant and suffer implications be­cause of ‘people’. 

I don’t know what you may be passing through right now in your marriage and you are feeling so unhappy because of what people are saying already or what people will say, especially when that saying is not true. First, I want you to know that no matter what you do in life, people will always say something negative or positive about you. 

Secondly, if you run your marriage based on what people say or do not say, your marriage will lose its peculiar identity. Every marriage has a special element that makes it unique. So, you are expected by God to seek and strive to make your marriage work by putting in deliberate efforts to attract pos­itive ingredients that other marriages may not have. 

Thirdly, what people say about your marriage is totally irrelevant as long as you are living joyfully with your spouse and chil­dren in a godly way. It is what God says about your marriage that matters because God is the founder of the marital institution. As long as you run this institution based on the manual of the inventor, your problems will go at the rate at which they come. 

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:11). 

“Submitting yourselves to one another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church, and he is the savior of the body. There­fore, as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. 

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church, and gave himself for it. That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word. That he might present it to himself, a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hateth his own flesh, but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church” (Ephesians 5:21-29 KJV).
