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.

“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 in 2000, principled Ralph Nader, tired of the usual fall in line, wait your turn, while the good party people do as they please, decided to take another way out. To show his disaffection and dissatisfaction with the way things are and has been with the Democratic Party, maintaining a hindering status-quo, ran a third party race, which resulted in the loss of that presidential election by Al Gore to George Walker Bush. Icheoku says such a situation has once again arisen and only such vehement rejection of the ingrained undemocratic practices of the Democratic Party, as Ralph Nader did in 2000, will indeed actually establish Bernie Sanders as standing with the people. Anything short of decisively rejecting the now apparent gang up against him, as revealed by the Wikileaks leaked emails, will be interpreted as weakness and lack of core.

Icheoku therefore calls on silver-haired, frail-looking, hippie grandpa Bernie Sanders, to follow in the footsteps of Ralph Nader and run a third party candidate against Hillary Clinton. By doing so, he will fully establish himself as a man of his own, a complete outsider; and thus help reject the coronation of Queen Hillary by the Democratic Party honchos. There are so many reasons why this should be the only honorable way out for Bernie Sanders; as any other thing or action will amount to a wasted time for an unprincipled Bernie, only in it for the ride and not with any conviction whatsoever. If Bernie fails to stand up against the entrenched way of doing things, the good ole way of party owners interests first, then it is finished for real democracy in America's other party, the Democratic Party. How else would anyone explain what was witnessed so far in the Democratic Party; from their skewed primaries to the now leaked emails, which only showed how undemocratic the supposed Democratic Party really is.

First, Bernie Sanders ran a good campaign based primarily on Hillary Clinton's lack of honesty and full disclosure of her sly practices, culminating in the demand that she released her Wall Street speeches. Throughout the primaries and till date, Hillary Clinton has refused to release those speeches, despite repeated requests by Bernie Sanders. Icheoku queries, if those speeches are innocuous and does not contain things inimical to the American people's interest, why has Hillary Clinton not released them? It would appear that Bernie Sanders has moved on from his request that  those speeches be released as he endorsed Hillary Clinton without having those Wall Street speeches released. This left so many people wondering why Bernie did what Bernie did and whether those Wall Street speeches are no longer important for Bernie and once again leaving American people shafted?

Following the loss of that demand by Bernie Sanders for Hillary Clinton to release her Wall Street speeches, Icheoku expected that Bernie Sanders should at least get the privilege of nominating the Vice Presidential candidate for Hillary Clinton. But again, his preferred choice of Pocahontas Elizabeth Warren was snubbed by Hillary Clinton, in preference for someone to the far right of an already too far right Hillary Clinton in the eyes of Bernie supporters; and one wonders what all these are about? It forces one to conclude that Hillary Clinton does not care a hoot about how Bernie feels, what Bernie thinks about, neither does she factor Bernie in reaching her decisions; yet Hillary wants Bernie Bun-feelers to tag along with their support for her candidacy. Icheoku queries, what is in it for Bernie and his people or are they marooned in a loathsome island and have no other choice but to lick their wounds while standing holding the plate? 

Then as if the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party has not had enough bricks heaped on their heads already, the just Wikileaks leaked emails of the Democratic Party honchos now left them running crazier about how the party helped sabotage and deny their candidate, a presidential nomination which he would have easily won. The email scandal revealed among many other things, how the party officials ganged up against Bernie Sanders because he is Jewish and not a real member of their Democratic Party?  Icheoku wonders how indeed democratic is this Democratic Party when they would not allow the proverbial "outsider" in their party? At least the Republican Party did and today an allowed outsider won their presidential nomination and is their presidential nominee. But unlike the supposed Democratic Party, which for all intent and purpose is democratic in name only which will not tolerate an outsider. Why decree that Bernie Sanders can never be their presidential nominee; yet he has been voting alongside the party for so long. 

The fallout of the emails scandal has lead to the resignation of the Democratic Party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz; a good first step and in the right direction. However, the tone-deaf Hillary Clinton, unable to decipher what the forced resignation actually meant, went ahead to rehire the disgraced Debbie Wasserman Shultz as her campaign's vice chair person. Icheoku queries, which side is this Hilalry Clinton on anyway - the people of America or her few protected special interests? What message was Hillary Clinton telegraphing to Bernie Sanders with her rehire of Debbie Wasserman Shultz? That Sanders can, like Dick Cheney once told Patrick Leheay, to go fuck himself? 

Ichoeku says Bernie Sanders has shown enough tolerance and willingness to work with Hillary Clinton by steps he has taken so far. But unfortunately, Hillary Clinton is now the person not willing to budge, nor want to meet Bernie halfway. She has remained obstinate all the way - not releasing those Wall Street speeches; not choosing Bernie preferred candidate for vice presidential slot and now rehiring a woman that was forced to resign because she stacked the deck against Bernie from ever securing the party's presidential ticket. 

Icheoku says Bernie Sanders's option here is highly limited but he must act like he got it and that Hillary Clinton does not really care about him nor his supporters or what they have to say or how they feel. Bernie must therefore respond in kind to Hillary's nauseating annoyances and go rogue on the party and run a third party candidacy. Bernie cannot continue to be the one taking it through the rear and only a revolt will actually confirm to Americans, especially his teeming supporters, that his resolve was deep and that he was not in it to tag along just to get along. Simply put, any other thing is unacceptable and Bernie Sanders should not lose everything just like that and because Hillary Clinton does not give a damn. Bernie, Icheoku says, show your resolve, Ralp Nader Hillary now.
