"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.

OBASEKI IS EDO CHOICE FOR GOVERNOR, WINS ELECTION.

Icheoku says congratulations to APC governorship candidate and now governor-elect of  Edo State Nigeria, Godwin Obaseki. As with every election, the loser always complains of irregularities including rigging, partiality of election officers, unfairness and cheating. So it is understandable, the current rejection of the election result by the defeated PDP candidate Osage Ize Iyamu. 

His protest does not however invalidate the election result or in any other way make it tainted beyond reproach because as with every election, someone will emerge victorious. The spread of the votes and its differential throughout the election areas shows that the collated result is more likely a genuinely contested and fairly won and lost election. There are also circumstances which would have and possibly did help the winner with the election: First the whole apparatus of the state which is APC controlled, backed his candidacy; including an incumbent state governor, a federal government with their police and other security agencies and of course the power of the purse. 


Godwin Obaseki won 13 out of the 18 Local Government Areas of the state with a total 319,483 votes against PDP's Ize Iyamu's 253,173 votes. Icheoku says possibly a precursor of what is to come in 2019, admitted that the APC is not so popular in Nigeria to produce the outcome. But hey, Icheoku says congratulations Godwin and let your campaign promises not go the way of every other APC campaign promises of all promises cancelled. Icheoku says remember to make or create the 100 millionaires within the first 100 days of your governorship as promised. Salute.
