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 IN SAUDI ARABIA.

PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP IN SAUDI ARABIA.
ICHEOKU says simply put, a charmer extraordinaire and it shows,

PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP GOES ON FIRST FOREIGN TRIP.

PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP GOES ON FIRST FOREIGN TRIP.
ICHEOKU says as the peoples president of America, President Donald John Trump, embarks on his first ever official overseas trip, wishes him all the best and God's speed, protection and guidance. A trip which will take him through Saudi Arabia, Israel, Vatican, Belgium for a NATO summit and then Sicily Italy for a G7 meeting; what a nine day swing through continents. ICHEOKU says he has captured the attention of the world and if the current trajectory of things is any barometer, he will succeed in wowing his host countries and winning their hearts and minds, that finally a president with authority and guts and presence of mind to clearly and unequivocally articulate what his visions are, is finally back in the White House. ICHEOKU loves this man and ICHEOKU has not seen anything yet to persuade ICHEOKU to have a change of mind. Success begets enmity and this is what all the present hullabaloo about Russian connection is all about. Sore losers who has refused to look in the mirror to see the damaged goods candidate who they fielded and who is both irreparable and irredeemable, are beating about the bush in search of a none existent bogey man who cost them the last election. ICHEOKU wishes President Donald John Trump success and affirms that he will succeed and will be in the White House for eight long years to transform America and indeed MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. Bravo.

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.

SOYINKA DEMYSTIFIED: THE TRIAL OF BROTHER JERO - CHARLES OGBU

If the 82 year old comparative literature professor Akinwande Oluwole Babatunde Soyinka could use words such as "Imbeciles",  "Barbarians", "Morons", "Stupid", "Internet Millipedes" etc on Nigerians simply for reminding him to tear (not throw away) his green card as he promised he would if Donald Trump emerged winner in the U.S. election, assuming he was the one sitting in that office currently occupied by the Daura-born political hurricane called Muhammadu Buhari, what do you think he would do to his political opponents, members of the opposition and young Nigerians criticizing him on the internet. 

This is a man who has spent the greater part of the 82 years he's spent so far on this earth 'chuking' his mouth into the affairs of others. The same man who once called the wife of his president a "Shippopotamus". We were told that Soyinka hates military dictators. Never mind that he quickly accepted the position of the FRSC chief from IBB, a military dictator. We were told that Soyinka fought tyrants from Fernando Po to Bermuda Triangle. Never mind that he recently helped enthrone another tyrant, Muhammadu Buhari as the president of a 21st century Nigeria. 

My question is, what exactly is the difference between those military dictators who jail their critics and a Wole Soyinka who haul invectives at his fellow citizens simply for reminding him to keep his word. And what is the difference between those who turn reason, commonsense and logic upside down to defend dictators like Idi-Amin, Adolf Hitler, Muhammadu Buhari etc and people like Pius Adesanmi and co who have been standing commonsense on its head in a desperate bid to portray Wole Soyinka as a God who can do no wrong? So because a man is a Professor, people should no longer criticize him if he progresses in error? 

Something is criminally wrong with a people who think that certain academic achievements confers one with immunity over criticism. Professor Wole Soyinka is not exactly the problem. The horde of hypocritical alleluia boys giving him the God status are the real problem. The mindset of "my hero can do no wrong" being exhibited by people like Pius Adesanmi and co in this Soyinka issue is the same mindset exhibited by supporters of tyrants all over the world. 

Dictators are made, not born. If you love a man to the point where you cannot stand anyone expressing reservations about such a man, trust me, you need to watch  it. What you have for that man is blind love which is no love at all. If you only condemn 'wrong' when it's done by your enemy and praise it when its done by your friends, trust me, you are part of the problem, not the solution. 

Big lesson: Don't get carried away by big titles such as "professor", "SAN" and other etcetera etcetera stuff attached to people's names both on social media and in real life. Engage every man according to what he brings to the table. Some of these men with those big titles are as morally-bankrupt and integrity-challenged as they come. I think the law of diminishing return is taking its toll on our dear Prof. Wole  Soyinka. Just like many Nigerians, he is a victim of this thing called God complex. Journalists should help our Prof. stay away from the camera and microphones. Just like the big masquerade, Ijele, he has overstayed in the village square, he now stand the risk of children mistaking him for a mere mortal wearing mask. This is indeed the trial of 'brother' Soyinka!"
