"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

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)


PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI, BREAKING THE LAW.


Icheoku says regrettably his Vice President Osibanjo, a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, is fidgeting around, while the president is wrecking havoc to Nigeria's hard fought democracy. Icheoku says by flagrantly disobeying court's orders, the president is doing grave damage to the very foundation on which every democracy is based. Osibanjo, Icheoku says defend your honor as a servant of the law and tell your boss that he has no choice in the matter of releasing detainees who have been granted bail.

NNAMDI KANU, A PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE !!!

Icheoku says the more they hold him, the bigger, the better and the larger he becomes; and more resolved on his quest for an independent homeland of Biafra. A thinking government of Nigeria would let him go and just monitor his activities if they have the time. Icheoku calls on President Muhammadu Buhari and his advisers to let Nnamdi Kanu go, moreso now that two courts of competent jurisdictions have granted him bail, one unconditionally.

COLORADO CHARADE, NOT THE DEMOCRACY WE CAN BELIEVE IN.

Icheoku says those who make peaceful change impossible make violent change inevitable. If this particular man will not allow Americans to chose who they want to lead them, how else does he want them to change an outcome they are not happy with? Violence? Colorado Republican Party chairman Steve House  sure confirmed that his House is not a large tent for everyone as he is prepared to exclude some people he does not like and would rather do such injustice pursuing it. 

What a shame. Americans still have the right to choose who leads them and will not accept the untoward behavior of Colorado Republicans trying to deny Americans the right to choose their leader. The Republican presidential primaries is a contest and in a contest, participants are supposed to be availed equal opportunity to compete. But a situation where the party officials have a dog in the fight and would go to any length to deny a competitor his day in court is simply unacceptable and should be condemned by every righteous person. It is fairness; it is justice; it is equity and it is the only the acceptable operating procedure in any given contest. Let each and every participant be heard and be allowed to be voted for. 

That the Colorado Republican honchos could dare deny the front runner of the Republican Party's presidential primaries, Donald John Trump, the opportunity to be voted for, is rather incredible to say the least. They decided to award all the Colorado delegates to Ted Cruz and the supposed Christian zealot and fanatic happens to find nothing wrong with such brazen act of pervasion? Ted Cruz appears to be a christian in name only and only when it suits him; but fails or rather chooses not to see anything wrong in this injustice that was wrought to Donald Trump. Americans understands this very weird, vampire-looking man from Texas, the reason his moniker "Lyin' Ted" has stuck to him thus far. Icheoku says that an injustice to one is an injustice to all. Today it might be Donald Trump that is at the tip end of the sword, who knows for whom the bells will toll tomorrow. 

Icheoku therefore calls on Colorado republican party honchos to reverse themselves and at worst divide the delegates proportionally. If we can demand of the Chinese Communist Party to open up their electoral system to allow the Chinese people choose their leaders; and often quarrels with Putin's Russia because their system is not transparent, how then does America explain the sham that took place in Colorado? Icheoku says with a democracy like that no one actually needs democracy and we might as well revert to a politburo system where henchmen handpick who they feel is best for the citizens. In the manner Ronald Reagan admonished Soviet Union's Gorbachev to tear down this wall, Icheoku says to Colorado Republic Party Chairman Steve House to reverse the Colorado outcome in the spirit of fairness and justice to everyone of the candidates in the running to become the party's presidential nominee.
