THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED

THEY SWARMED AND ANTIFA FLED
ICHEOKU says thanks to American Bikers, the much anticipated protest in Phoenix rally-styled speech did not materialize. May be we should have more of these Bikers in every rally. Kudos to the real bad ass men with steely balls.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.
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 PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"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.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER
"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.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS MCGREGOR

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

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


BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

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.

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.

BOLA TINUBU, THE POLITICAL JUGGERNAUT OF NOW NIGERIA.

Icheoku says love his politics or not, one thing nobody would take away from Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is that he is formidable and gets it. His a master in the art of politicking and navigating the  fine labyrinths of politics. A political life which started a short years ago and has blossomed into a national following that is to say the least phenomenal. 

He shot into the national limelight as a senator, then governor, morphed into regional organizer, king maker, astute opposition and crowned his effort recently when he defeated a sitting president and made another president through his political dexterity and sagacious maneuvering. He is courageous, foresighted, has terrific organizing ability and fearless, taking on Abacha through NADECO, Obasanjo as governor of Lagos State and Jonathan when they fell out. But he succeeded at the end of the day and today is the man sitting on top of Nigerian politics. Today, no one is more powerful in Nigeria political firmament that Ahmed Bola TInubu and they don't make his like any more, at least not many.

His diminutive rise not withstanding, he practically midwifed the current party in power in Nigeria APC, an amalgam of his AC and CPC as well as other mushroom parties. He fought off the government of President Jonathan and successfully led the effort that threw it out of Aso Rock. He single handily enthroned President Muhammad Buhari as the party's flag bearer, quashing all challenges the president had to emerge as a consensus sole candidate. He selected the vice president Bayo Osinbajo without any input from anybody. He choose several of current ministers including Minister of Finance whom he seconded from Ogun State to head Abuja money ministry. 

People who tried to cross him did not fair very well afterwards and the current Minister for Power, Housing and Works could attest that it took his full prostration surrounded by several peacemaker before Asiwaju could forgive him after making him governor of Lagos State and the man thought that he has now grown enough wings to challenge his mentor. That Buhari's cabinet was delayed for nearly six months was a result of his unwillingness to forgive Fashola and Buhari wanted Fashole in his cabinet. The list goes on of people he has helped place in positions including the latest promotion of his erstwhile Commissioner of Finance Ben Akabueze who was promoted to Director of Budget in Abuja. 

This leads to the issue being articulated here, the loyalty he shows to his trusted and loyal followers, the disciples of Tinubu school of politicking. Icheoku says the man certainly know how to cultivate following and maintain it.He also knows how to reward loyalty and has consistently shown it these past decades. Unlike his other contemporaries of the 1999 school of democratic politics in Nigeria, many of who have since become persona non grata even in their communities, Bola Tinubu walks tall and commanding because he is not too selfish not to take care of his foot soldiers and it always pays off handsomely. 

Bola Tinubu, simply put, is a larger than life political colossus of present day Nigerian. Regardless of the not so far good results of the government he helped instal, and in as much as many Nigerians are now saying buyer beware and regretting the decision they made listening to Bola Tinubu and his change mantra, the man from Osun Stateremains what he is, big political player. Icheoku says congratulations to a man who identifies political talents and uses them successfully. He knows how to cultivate power and maintaining it; and nothing more needs to be said except that Nigeria requires many more souls like him. Asiwaju, Icheoku says this one is for you.
