"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.

DONALD TRUMP'S APOLOGY, MAY BE A GOOD WELCOME REBOOT?

Icheoku says because no man is infallible and in order to clear all the cobwebs of distractions currently hounding his campaign and refocus the American public's attention  on what is more important -  his message of make America great again; it will be a nice step in the right direction if the presidential nominee of the Republican Party, Donald John Trump, could allay the fears and concerns arising from his campaign rhetorics. He could do this by simply addressing the nation in a press conference and explain some of the issues of concern. Now is the time to do it and in order to bandage the current bleeding his campaign is suffering and to ensure a firmer path towards berthing in the White House this November.

Icheoku believes that an explanatory apology, not expressly admitting fault; but one explaining his missteps and misspeaks as a rookie's mistakes, will successfully wipe clean whatever blame slate he currently has. This will enable him get back on track with his message and entirely on a fresh clean slate going forward. The time has come for Donald Trump to do this mea culpa and make up with the American people who feel strongly violated by some of what he said or how he said them. There should be no more waiting or dig dallying because with every day, election day draws nearer and no limping should be accepted at this hour. Admitted that he did nothing wrong nor illegal, but because politics is a game of pandering, he should learn how to dance to some of these political macabre tunes and give those cry babies their brief time in the sun, cuddling them as may be needed before the cameras. Some of them have hurt feelings and needs to be pacified; and a politician should see nothing wrong or ego challenging in doing this.

Donald Trump should start by first placating every aggrieved member of the contentious Republican Party primaries squad of 16; many of whom are still nursing their hurt feelings and deflated ego, having lost the party's nomination to a rookie politician. There is nothing wrong in calling a meeting of truce with these sixteen presidential candidate wanna bees and have a serious heart to heart parley with them. Donald Trump should hear them out, apology privately to them as may be needed and ask them to please sheath their swords in the interest of the party. He could also promise them total involvement and inclusion in a President Donald Trump's presidency. He could even promise them political appointments, including cabinet secretary positions, ambassadorial postings etc. Whatever gets them going and in order to win the election should be worth exploring. Donald Trump needs to do this and do it now, without any further delay nor hesitation. 

Then he must also explain to the Muslim world and clarify his very narrowed objection to fanatical Muslims invading America and by so doing take the wind out of the sail of his traducers who have magnified what he said to an intolerable scare amongst Muslims. Donald Trump must explain to these sacred Muslims that he had many Muslim friends, many of who are his business partners and employees and that he never meant for a wholesale exclusion of all Muslims from the United States of America, but only those who want to do America harm. So also should he address other interests groups and blocs including illegal immigrants, whose feathers were ruffled by what he said or did not say politically, correctly; and then ask them to please forgive his misspeaks in the interest of helping him make America great again. 

Icheoku says like the story told of a dog sent to God with a message from humanity to abolish death which was distracted by the devil with some doggie treat enroute, Donald Trump has been distracted from his messaging and needs to get back on track and remain tunnel-visioned, staying in the narrow straight line of message only that will eventually lead him to the White House. He should avoid all eye contacts with all those curve balls or proverbial cakes of distraction being strewn on his path and side walks. He should keep his eyes on the ball and with the big picture of the White House in view, stay on message, the only vehicle that will transport him thereinto. Icheoku says all these needless distractions are the only weapon left in the arsenal of Hillary Clinton and they will continue to deploy it maximally and in order to rattle and get Donald Trump off his message. Falling for these baits must therefore be avoided and loathed like leprosy; and studiously staying on message is the key, the all it takes to win the presidency. 

So it will therefore be good for Donald Trump to reset his campaign and redirect the American people to what brought him thus far, his plans of making America great again. That he is not the two horned monster the Democrats are making him out to be but a loving man whose passion for America burns ferociously and that he will be president for all Americans. Donald Trump must as a matter of urgency, do this and do it now; and a good place to start will be tendering an apology to all that he might have offended in the course of his campaign.  He must unequivocally and explicitly ask them to forgive his rookie mistakes, being not a seasoned entrenched politician, used to forked-tongue, bifurcated double speak. Icheoku believes that such a contrition would engender him more to the worried American people who will begin to see him as a human being with a real heart. A moved American people would embrace him and help him make America great again.
