"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)


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.


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.


“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 it will be bloody and it will be groundhog dirty and Americans will be thrilled. With the DNC convention now concluded, and a presidential candidate nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton now officially the challenger of Donald John Trump, who formally secured his own party's nomination last week in Cleveland, the battle royal has been fixed and it is down and dirty from now till November 8 when Americans will decide who convinced them most. Icheoku cannot wait as the smackdown begins and lets see how much of the Donald, "The Girl" can absorb and whether she can punch back as given, whether she is tough enough. 

Hillary Clinton spoke of how her mother taught her to be brave, bold and brash; and to never backdown but to always rough and tumble with the boys.  That what boys can do, girls can even do better; and since boys don't cry it means girls shouldn't either. The question however is whether this girl can survive this particular boy, what went down in the Republican primaries considered. Can Hillary Clinton walk where JEB and fifteen others trembled; can Hillary take what the Donald will and is prepared to throw her way? Can Hillary Clinton stand where others crumbled? Can Hillary Clinton face the barrage of punches and counter-punches that the Donald will definitely offload on her? 

These and many more will actually tell Americans if indeed the girl is as tough as she mouths off and only if she survives and is still standing up will Icheoku know the stuff Hillary Clinton is indeed really made of, whether TEFLON or Leather or khaki or potato chips. With that being said, Icheoku says congratulations Donald John Trump and Hillary Rodham Clinton for respectively securing your party's nomination as presidential candidate in this election. American people look forward to listening to your campaign promises and policy direction and on November 8, will decide who made them a believer with their votes. Now, let the campaign begin and begin with all feistiness as Icheoku believes that Donald John Trump will emerge victorious and will be elected and sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. Good luck Trump and all the best Clinton.
