I am Icheoku and I approve this message:- On November 16, do not vote for Chris Ngige as governor of Anambra State because Ngige is not good for you; moreso he is a mask of Bola Tinubu who cannot wait to also get his filthy hands on Anambra State's money. On November 16, Anambra State Igbos MUST resist with a resounding NO, Bola Tinubu's incursion into Igboland. Icheoku says the handshake across the Niger must not be made on Igbo peoples' backs or with them laying prostrate at Bola Tinubu's feet. On November 16, vote to reject Bola Tinubu and his band of conquistadors from the West, DO NOT VOTE for Ngige.

Friday, November 15, 2013


Anambra State Igbos, Icheoku says "Ugo ebelugo na ngbagbu" (the eagle has perched for shooting) so you must fire without missing - straight right through the heart and shoot down this political adventurism into Igboland. You must nip this invasive incursion right in the bud before it spreads like a plague or wildfire throughout the land. Stand up to be counted to do right by and for Igbo people, knowing fully well that if you fall so would the rest of Igboland. If you are captured, there will not be any other bulwark left in defense of the rest of Igboland and these traducers will just simply roll over the rest of the territory. Please Anambra Igbos do not bring shame to Igbo people, do not sell our birthright to be full Nigerians by the pot of porridge that is Chris Ngige. It will be supremely shameful and a betrayal of no mean magnitude for the pride of Igboland to be handed over to the Yorubas for keeps just because Anambraians were baited by Chris Ngige. It is not done, it should not be done and it MUST NOT be done tomorrow or any other future time, otherwise history will judge you badly as the Igbo state that first betrayed the cause. In tomorrow's election, vote with pride to affirm that Igbos are not second fiddlers in Nigeria and that they have earned the right to be fully recognized as an integral part of the polity and that they are going to continue to remain same and relevant limb of Nigeria going forward. 

Tomorrow's election is not just an election per se but a lot is also at stake. Tomorrow's election is steeped in many symbolism among which is the place of Igboman in Nigeria politics going forward. It would also exfoliate and expose the sheer determination of the Igbo nation to continue to fight the good cause of maintaining their rightful berth in Nigeria and not allow others to subjugate and consume them politically and thereby confine them into political irrelevancy. It will also be a watershed to judge if Igbos have learnt anything on how to play politics and why it matters so much to have a voice in what affects them. Politics is a game based on several divergent interests, some of which goes from the mundane to the parochial and many atimes even defies informed logic and reason. It is not always about who is the most qualified otherwise George Bush would not have defeated Al Gore and John Kerry?  There is more to politics and this is the clarion call Icheoku is growing hoarse trying to send out to our brothers and sisters in Anambra State to read the handwriting on the wall and do the right thing. 

Politics is among other things emotive and sentimental and is not necessarily governed by ration that many times things like religion, color of skin, region, race, tribe and language or even physical looks of the candidate for office play a very dominant role in influencing the outcome of elections. It is the same all over the world and Icheoku does not expect the result of Anambra State governorship election to be determined any differently.This present generation of Anambra Igbos must not lose the fight which Zik fought till his grave yard was ready, which Ojukwu held fort the battle line until he transited, which every gone true Igboman and woman held very sacred and which every presently living Igbo person should hold dear - the fight of superiority of tribe going on between Yorubas and Igbos of Nigeria. No hard feelings just that a lot of EGO is at stake and the Yorubas MUST NOT be allowed to win and take home the trophy. 

There is more to politics than the presumed ability of a particular candidate to get things done. Icheoku emphasis that it will be psychologically very  traumatising and catastrophic for policies of an Igbo government of Anambra State, affecting Igbo people, to be formulated and decided at Idu Agaran Palace in Lagos, Yorubaland. Icheoku does not know about you but says it will completely SUCK indeed to have this happen and pleads for an awakening before it is turns too dark to make amends. Anyone still in doubt why the outcome of tomorrow's election matters, should re-watch the movie 'Devil's Advocate' and see the consequences of having a mentor who is simply too powerful for the mentored. Lagos State Governor Fashola's servitude to Bola Tinubu is a clear indicator of what an Anambra State's Chris Ngige would be to Bola Tinubu and which Anambra State Igboman or woman wants their governor to be bowing to a Yorubaman Bola Tinubu's dictates? That a hefty price will be paid by Ngige for the gift of being made governor is quite obvious and which Anambra State Igbo wants this? Furthermore, it is a truism that like every politician who sweet-coats their campaign promises, that Chris Ngige will not do all that he says he will do for Anambra State first because talk is cheap, the resources might not be available and also party politics might make his Yoruba masters who are desirous of keeping Igbos in check not allow him to carry them through. 

Please Anambra State Igbos, Icheoku begs you not to wait to find out if this will be true because it would then be too late. Prevention is better than cure, so close that gate on Bola Tinubu before braving the rain to pursue the thieving Bola Tinubu out of your fatherland. Unlike Nike, Icheoku says 'JUST DON'T DO IT.' On November 16, tomorrow, tell Bola Tinubu to take a hike; tell Bola Tinubu that Igbos do not trust him; tell the Yorubas to remain in their neck of the wood of Nigeria; tell the Bola Tinubu APC to respect the legacy of Zik, Ojukwu and all other Igbo  loving sons and daughters who strove over the many years gone by to keep Igbo peoples' head above the water in Nigerian politics; tell Bola Tinubu that boundaries matters and that he gotta respect the Igbo's; tell Bola Tinubu that to each his own and that Igbos tend to keep Anambra State safe from his greedy covetous quest; simply stated, tell Bola Tinubu 'NOT THIS TIME.' When you wake up and it is a tomorrow come, VOTE with the understanding that every politics is local and making sure that Anambra State is not handed over to Bola Tinubu or an Igbo state to the Yorubas. Icheoku reiterates that we do not hate them, but we are competitors and we do not have to be the ones to lose. DO NOT VOTE FOR NGIGE.

Thursday, November 14, 2013


Only two days is what is left between FREEDOM and SLAVERY; so Anambra State Igbos choose ye today which one you prefer. Also ever given a thought to what is actually fuelling Bola Tinubu mad desire to CAPTURE Anambra State at all cost and by extension conquer the entire Igboland? Look no further as Onitsha and Nnewi markets are the things making him salivate and as soon as he assumes authority in Awka by proxy of Ngige, his first order of business will be to subjugate OMATA and NMTA and put them under his daughter's control through the Nigerian Market Association on which he imposed her recently as their Iyaloja. 

Just do the math, do some thinking and ask yourselves what is there for Bola Tinubu or since when did he become Father Christmas that he would invest more than six billion Naira in a campaign that holds nothing for him? On November 16, do right by and for Anambra State, vote to reject Bola Tinubu, do not vote for Ngige. 

Wednesday, November 13, 2013


Some people said Bola Tinubu means well and is only seeking an anchor in Igboland to help empower the region, right? Icheoku says if Bola Tinubu's love for the Igbos is real and that strong, why didn't he begin to show it from his home state Lagos or does charity no longer begin from home? Icheoku queries, why did Bola Tinubu not consider it appropriate to at least allow one Igbo person to be elected into the Lagos State House of Assembly under his ACN now APC, considering the population strength of a people representing almost 49% of Lagos population? 

How does Bola Tinubu justify this taxation without representation of Igbos in Lagos State; and/or that a group of people with such a large presence in Lagos does not have anyone representing them in that state's House of Assembly? Icheoku says at least in those areas with very large Igbo concentration like Amuwo Odofin, Itire, Ajao Estate and some parts of Surulere, a more accommodating and Igbo-loving Bola Tinubu would have selected an Igbo person to represent those catchment areas in the State's assembly but he did not. icheoku says a tolerant person in the position of Bola Tinubu would have righted this wrong earlier before now instead of the current singing of "Kumbaya I love Igbos" just to reap where he did not sow using Ngige as a front. If there is a need to finally shake hands across the Niger, why didn't Bola Tinubu begin that effort earlier by showing Igbos great love and affection by his actions both as governor of Lagos and currently the man who owns and dictates to everyone in APC. Why Now, why all of a sudden. Something does not seem right at all and Icheoku urges Anambra Igbos not to swallow the bait of Ngige.

Icheoku says to Anambra State people, this November 16, do not be deceived by the gestapo from Lagos now masquerading as Igbo lover; neither should you allow yourselves to be sucked in by his subterfuge Ngige. Vote against domination and please do not because you like Ngige forget what this election is all about or what is important about this election. Pride, Honor and self determination are implicated on November 16 and here lies Icheoku's beef with Bola Tinubu. Please Anambra Igbos do not go willingly into political slavery in Yorubaland. Ngige may be a good person but he is in a wrong party, controlled by a VERY BAD man Bola Tinubu and before Bola Tinubu, Ngige is and will be powerless. Just advise yourselves to how Ngige was overwhelmed by other Nigerians in the senate and be the judge how he is going to be out-numbered and out-manoeuvred by the Yoruba power players of APC. Needless to say that the over six billion Naira funneled to the Ngige campaign was sourced from outside Anambra State and will be paid back from somewhere - Anambra State's coffers. Unlike Alusi Okija, Oshun River Goddess does not show mercy and Ngige is fully aware of it and therefore knows better not to give Bola Tinubu the Chris Ubah treatment for his own good and well-being. Please Anambra State Igbos, do not put shame on the Igbos by selling out to Bola Tinubu Yoruba. See your vote against Ngige on November 16 as a rejection of Bola Tinubu expedition. 

Tuesday, November 12, 2013


For those wondering why Icheoku is hard on Ngige and the avowed determination to make Ngige unelectable and not elected on November 16, 2013 Anambra State governorship election; in answer Icheoku maintains that Ngige is a surrogate of Bola Tinubu and the consequences of handing over Anambra State to Bola Tinubu's control is just too grave a lapse in judgment to go without a fight. So Icheoku is fighting the good fight to preserve the identity, honor and pride of Igbo people, who must be stopped and prevented from going into the slavish control of Yoruba Bola Tinubu. Imagine Bola Tinubu making policy decisions for Igboland from Lagos or tele-guiding his Ngige into ABOLISHING the Obi-ship of Onitsha? If any Anambra State Igbo wants to have a glimpse of the impending doomsday scenario taking over of Anambra State by Bola Tinubu portends and which Icheoku and millions of other well meaning Igbos are fighting to prevent, let that person take a look at those Yoruba ACN controlled states and judge for him/herself how absolute power corrupts absolutely. Just one man named Bola Tinubu holds the entire region hostage and tells every dick, tom and harry when to go to sleep and when to wake up simply because he can. 

Icheoku says the thought of this one-man terror squad taking over Igboland is simply too nightmarish and unimaginably so haranguing to be allowed and so MUST NOT be allowed to berth in Anambra State without a fight. Needless to add that Bola Tinubu's brand of democracy is definitely different from that handed over to the world by the Greek founding fathers to which Nigeria is striving to copy. Icheoku asks, has it dawned on any Anambra State Igbo that Bola Tinubu's wife is a senator, his son inlaw a congressman, his daughter a councillor and another of his daughter the Iyalode of Yoruba Market women Association and you wonder if democracy dividends is only good for the Tinubus? Whatever happened to that good old saying of what is good for the goose being also good for the gander in Bola Tinubu's controlled ACN which has now metamorphosed into APC? 

Strictly speaking 'Tinubuocracy' is not analogous with Democracy, so Anambra State people must be fully made aware of this impending catastrophe from a fast approaching Bola Tinubu's APC train waiting to wreck and get out of the way quickly. Icheoku says a selfish civilian dictator like Bola Tinubu cannot be said to be a true practising democrat if he cannot allow the people the freedom to freely choose their representatives and not arbitrarily impose his family members and stooges on the people. In Anambra State, Bola Tinubu is using the old tactic that always allure people - someone they are somewhat comfortable with; and he is certainly using Ngige as a bait to secure an anchor in Igboland. Please Anambra people, this November 16, tell Bola Tinubu that his Trojan Horse has been discovered; vote against Bola Tinubu, vote to reject his Ngige. Ngige is not good for you because he will hand over Anambra State purse to Bola Tinubu.

Monday, November 11, 2013


Icheoku says Igbo people of Anambra State must join other Igbos to register their displeasure over our peoples' deportation from Lagos by APC's Governor Fashola, supported by Bola Tinubu. They must in unison say to APC's Governor Fashola that his so called apology was neither sufficient nor was it properly tendered and channeled, and therefore not accepted.  By resoundingly rejecting Governor Fashola's APC from taking roots in Anambra State by proxy of the APC-tainted governorship candidate Chris Ngige, in the forthcoming governorship election in November, the message would have been sent to all Igbo-haters, who demean and denigrate Igbo people in Nigeria at every given opportunity, that enough is enough - NO MORE, NEVER AGAIN and NOT THIS TIME. 

It would be a symbolic gesture, made not out of hatred of Chris Ngige but to send a clear message to APC's Governor Fashola and the other Yoruba apologist Femi Fani Kayode that spiting Igbo people will not be rewarded or tolerated, nor would any of such their frontal assault on Igbo's general psyche ever be forgotten. To ignore this plea and otherwise in any event elect APC's Chris Ngige as governor of Anambra State this November, no matter under what color, subterfuge or disguise of his past proven record of performance, would be selling out to Yoruba's APC's Bola Tinubu and Governor Fashola.  Recall that Bola Tinubu was in Onitsha and failed to personally apologise for the deportation of Igbos from Lagos by his appointed governor of Lagos State, Fashola.

This November 16, rise to the occasion, vote to reject domination, vote against Bola Tinubu's APC and their Ngige.

Sunday, November 10, 2013


Icheoku says a vote for Chris Ngige is a vote for APC; and a vote for APC is an automatic authorization of Bola Tinubu to do whatever and however pleases him, with the purse of Anambra State, Igboland's headquarter. Icheoku says after all the horrid experiences Igbo people have suffered in the hands of Yoruba people starting with Awolowo against Zik through Obasanjo's shutting down Igbo businesses (Ibeto cement, Slok airlines, Hallmark Bank, Savannah Bank etc) to the most recent deportation of Igbos by yet another Yoruba Igbo-hater Governor Fashola, it would be a great defeatism for Igbo people to just turn around and hand over to Yorubas our key State, Anambra. 

Icheoku reiterates that Igbo and Yoruba people are competitors in Nigeria and in order for one competitor to win, the other must lose; and Igbos must not lose by such a wide margin of turning over our key state to the Yorubas. Igbos must not surrender to the Yorubas but should and must continue to see and fight the Yorubas as arch rivals in Nigeria in order for them to still remain relevant in Nigeria. So please Anambra Igbos do not play the possum or allow the Yorubas run you over, do not surrender your state to Bola Tinubu. If you do, you would be equally ratifying APC's Governor Fashola's deportation of Igbos from Lagos and this should be a NO, NO. This November 16, please do not do the unthinkable, vote to refuse being subjugated, vote against APC, Bola Tinubu and their puppet Ngige.

Saturday, November 9, 2013


On issues after issue that matter to Igbos and Anambra State Igbos in particular, Chris Ngige was  has shown that his allegiance is elsewhere. 

When the issue of Ezu River floating dead Igbos at Amansea-Awka was front burner, Chris Ngige maintained political silence and at best offered little but a mediocre lip-service outrage? 

When the issue of Anambra State ownership of the Orient Refinery came up for deliberation in the Senate, Chris Ngige silently watched as Kogi State Senator Smart Adeyemi made passionate claim to the oil deposit as Kogi's without much of a rebuttal or restating the facts of Anambra State's clear and free claim of title to the oil. It is also instructive that the Kogi State senator challenged Ngige to prove otherwise but he remained thunderstruck, bewildered, askanced and confused as to a response. 

Chris Ngige is also an honorary member of the "Senators Do or Did Nothing" group - a number of senators who never sponsored or co-sponsored any bill in the senate and who never had their name attached to any bill? 

When the issue of the deportation of Igbos from Lagos was heating up the polity, Ngige maintained a tactical silence while collecting campaign funds from Yoruba APCs and their Governor Fashola, the same man who told Igbos to go home? If Ngige cannot stand up for the Igbos facing attack from the Yorubas, how can he stand up against Bola Tinubu when he covets Anambra State's MONEY? How can anyone defend the deportation of a Nigerian from Nigeria? Is Lagos now a country where other Nigerians or Igbos need visas to travel to? - Excerpts from an article "How Ngige destroyed his political brand" by Chukwudi Nwokoye. Icheoku says except that someone did and that someone's name is CHRIS NGIGE; so on November 16, remind Ngige that Igbos have no price tag and cannot be so easily and cheaply sold to the Yorubas. Do not vote for Ngige.

Friday, November 8, 2013


"When he was governor, Ngige was able to build a brand name for himself as an uncompromising fighter for the people against the ‘devils’ that held the state down. After his tenure as governor was terminated by the Appeal Tribunal, he still remained relevant and not a few people gave him a fighting chance to return as governor. However, as fate would have it, he was schemed out in 2007 by the same OBJ’s cabal who wanted an easy ride for Andy Uba. Again, he contested for governor again in 2010 and could only win three (3) local councils out of twenty-one (21). But the following years, he contested for Senate for the Anambra Central Constituency and was controversially declared the winner after a re-run. The stout court challenge by his opponent, Prof. Dora Akunyili, was aborted due to the 180 days rule within which a challenge to an election must be concluded. Off to the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Ngige went.

It was at the senate that Ngige’s brand started diminishing in substance and form. He became a proverbial dog that was chasing after a car, caught up with the car and then got confused as to what to do with the car, and why he was pursuing the car in the first place. Like the lizard that ruined its own mother’s funeral, Ngige slowly and steadily frittered away the brand name he created for himself. As far back as 2003, he had wanted to be in the senate and many Anambra people, and even his harshest critics believed that he is best suited for the senate where he could employ those bravados, ‘gra gra’ and his feistiness for the benefits of the Anambra Central Constituency. If his ardent supporters hoped that he would use the senate pulpit to reset his ailing political fortunes, he seems not to have found his bearing and his touch for over two years. On issues after issues that are of interest to Igbos in general and Anambra people in particular, Ngige became a ‘no-show! There is no appreciable impact felt by the people after over two years of Chris Ngige being in the senate." - Chukwudi Nwokoye.

Icheoku concurs and says that any man who could not fight for his people in the senate will not fight those powers that be of the APC, Bola Tinubu and Muhammadu Buhari, in order to bring home the bacon for Anambra State people. So on November 16, say no to Tinubu and Buhari expedition in Igboland, vote to stop the overrunning of Igboland's flagship state by these strange bed fellows whose only sticking stitch is their grand conspiracy to STICK IT to Igbo people. Please do not be a facilitator of or party to or enabler to this machination; vote to reject being subjugated, DO NOT VOTE FOR NGIGE.

Thursday, November 7, 2013


"Ngige benefited as much from the incompetence and greed of his predecessors as from a culture of low expectations where the payment of salaries or the provision of roads is rated an amazing achievement. But there’s no question that his image has since lost much of its glitter in the last two years or so. After a bruising battle to claim his Senate seat from Dora Akunyili, Mr. Ngige, a medical doctor by training seemed to have gone to sleep. If there was any significant bill he sponsored or co-sponsored, or any legislative steps he took to boost the life of his constituents, he and his handlers must have worked hard to conceal it from the public. He has been quite, quite simply a mediocre, an underwhelming senator. Given his self-inflicted injuries as a weak senator, the question is whether he has the residual goodwill to pull off victory in a governorship election where he is almost certain to be outspent by his other opponents and their backers.” - Okey Ndibe. 

Icheoku concurs and adds that Ngige is also in a wrong anti-Igbo party of Bola Tinubu and Muhammadu Buhari, both Muslims, whose antagonism against NDIGBO is both a fact and a truism. On November 16, do it for Igbo's pride of place and honor in Nigeria, DO NOT sell Igbos into the slavery of Yoruba Bola Tinubu or Buhari's Hausa/Fulani conquering mentality; please DO NOT VOTE FOR NGIGE.

Wednesday, November 6, 2013


Senator Chris Ngige in Biafran SuitStanding at barely 4 feet 11 inches tall, Icheoku says this man is simply too short for Anambra State governorship and this his lack, possibly explains the irascibility and rashness that has come to be associated with all his actions? The little man of APC is certainly suffering a Bonaparte complex:- a miniature person's syndrome of trying too hard to compensate and most times over-compensate for their small size. This physical disability of my size is not a handicap, which triggers anxiety and overdrive in sufferers was brought to life by France's Napoleon Bonaparte after whom it was named. History is replete with how Napoleon rushed so many decisions, some of them with disastrous consequences for France and the world. It is instructive to note that many of these irrational decisions came at a hefty price, admitted they were ordinarily avoidable and could have been easily been avoided; but the little was only driven by a mission to just prove himself and compensate for his diminutive size. Query:- is Anambra State ready for such bargains? Icheoku says this midget is not good for Anambra State because some of his rash and rushed decisions might be too far reaching and too consequential for the state. Also the image of Anambra State with a midget governor might be very telling; except if those our Igbo brothers and sisters have lost all their sensibilities not to mind the stature of the man in their government house? A leader is supposed to project authority with his presence which definitely is lacking and has since gone fishing in this man. On November 16, please tell Ngige that he is 'Too Shorty" for Anambra State.

Tuesday, November 5, 2013


"APC candidate for governor, Senator Chris Ngige embroiled himself in yet another controversy. He slapped a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Evaristus Ezekwona, at a burial ceremony in Nanka, Agulu, Anambra State on Thursday, October 31, 2013. And it was not a case of mistaken identity as the victim priest was dressed in his full cassock. There were screams of shock and horror from the onlookers but Senator Ngige did not bulge nor could he be stopped." 

Icheoku did not say the above but merely reprinted an insider witness's account of an erratic Ngige gone wild did at an event; and this is the man who wants to preside over Anambra State? On November 16, please Anambra State people say no to this irascible behavior and tell Bola Tinubu to take a hike and look for another state's treasury to plunder somewhere else.

Monday, November 4, 2013


Icheoku says still looking for a reason not to vote for Chris Ngige, why not just see it that his election will be subjugating Igbos under Bola Tinubu's control? Every Nigerian is aware of the stranglehold Bola Tinubu holds all Southwestern Nigeria APC governors and could somebody please tell Icheoku that Ngige has what it takes to look Bola Tinubu in the eyes and say none of your hands in the cookie jar? Icheoku says Ngige did not stand up when those Igbos were deported on Tinubu's instruction and will not stand up now after having taken oath at Oshun River Goddess shrine to be a loyal party man, whatever that means other than unlimited access to the purse of Anambra State. On November 16, be smart Anambra State Igbos, do not be a surrender-monkey to Bola Tinubu. Vote against Bola Tinubu, do not vote for Ngige.

Sunday, November 3, 2013


He worships deities by night and pretends to also worship God by day. He swore oath of loyalty to Chris Uba by Alusi Okija and now to Bola Tinubu, by Oshun River Goddess? With the elections fast approaching, he now publicly kneels in pretended prayer to the Almighty just to beguile the good Christian people of Anambra State that the "Chris" in his name is well merited? But are our people of Anambra State buying into this charade, Icheoku does not think so? Our God who is omnipotent and all knowing, and who sees the secrets of every man cannot be deceived, not even by the white garment facade, that this man is indeed truly worthy and deserving of the "Chris" in his name. Icheoku says our dear Igbo brothers and sisters of Anambra State MUST not drink of the cool-aid latte of Chris Ngige being offered to them by Bola Tinubu. It is from a poisoned chalice; it is poisonous and its toxicity will only cause irreparable damage and harm to what the Igbos hold dear to them - their pride. 

Why must Igbos now suddenly surrender to the Yorubas simply because they presented Chris Ngige as their Trojan horse ambassador? It was not done during Zik; it was not done during Ojukwu and it must not be done now, not under our watch. We are very wide awake and as Dee Sam Mbakwe of the blessed memory once said, the rat does not eat that which belongs to a man who is awake. Icheoku says Chris Ngige is a front-man for Bola Tinubu's greed; and if elected, together they will pillage and plunder the treasury of Anambra State. On November 16, please tell Bola Tinubu that his plans has leaked and that his mask of Ngige has fallen off, revealing the monster lurking behind it. Further, that Igbos in general and Anambra State Igbos in particular are not comfortable with the idea of Bola Tinubu taking over and presiding over their collective destiny nor would they submit to dictations from Isale Eko Odungaran on how to run affairs in Anambra State Igboland. On November 16, VOTE to reject Bola Tinubu's expedition, do not vote for Chris Ngige. 

Saturday, November 2, 2013


His friend deported Igbos from Lagos, he kept quiet, said nothing but patted him on the back? He failed to come to the defense of those Igbos deported neither did he speak forcefully against the deportation by way of condemnation. Now tell Icheoku what the assurance is that he would not look the other way when Bola Tinubu dips his filthy greed hands into the purse of Anambra State in the unfortunate event Anambra Igbos fail to do right by themselves and for their traditional institutions and he is elected? Icheoku says one could safely tell who a person is by the company of people he keeps. He hung around with people who have serious phobia for Igbo people and who are perpetually looking at any and every opportunity to get at Igbo people. Remember Fashola also closed Ladipo market as well as many other Igbo trading posts in Lagos for a long period of time to jeopardize their economic well-being. This November 16, Igbos of Anambra State on behalf of Igbos everywhere MUST tell Chris Ngige that his sins has finally caught up with him; on November 16, do not vote for Ngige.

Friday, November 1, 2013


"Joining the APC is to join in expanding the activities of oppressive feudal lords such as Asiwaju Bola Tibunu who has turned Lagos and some Southwest states into his personal estates and is now busy imposing leaders, looting state funds, converting state owned property to personal belongings and milking the citizens with high taxes to finance his wasteful lifestyle.” - Olisa Metuh. 

Icheoku says Chris Ngige is part of the Bola Tinubu profligacy train and STOP HIM, Anambra State Igbos must in order to prevent him from supporting Bola Tinubu's wasteful lifestyle with Anambra State's money. On November 16, Do not vote for this man.

Thursday, October 31, 2013


Chris Ngige has taken enough for the owner to notice. We were just recovering from his betrayal over the deportation Saga when the man led his APC gang to desecrate the tradition of Onitsha people on their Ofala day. That was a handshake across the elbow. We hope that this should teach him a lesson that no man who holds his people in absolute contempt can turn around and rule them in absolute comfort.” - Tony Onwuchekwa.

Icheoku says 'eziokwu bu nke a' and calls on Anambra State Igbos to reject Ngige and his Bola Tinubu led gang of adventurers from the West. On November 16, 2013, vote to reject the assault on a revered traditional institution, VOTE AGAINST Ngige because Chris Ngige is not good for you.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013



Icheoku says behold the man hiding behind the mask of Ngige. A vote for Chris Ngige this November 16, 2013 is a vote for Bola Tinubu to take over Anambra State's revenue. Icheoku says it is a bad idea to permit Bola Tinubu's greedy filthy hands to get hold of Anambra State's MONEY. It is not good for Anambra State and it is not good for Igboland's pride. On November 16, say NO to a Bola Tinubu's hostile takeover attempt of Anambra State's treasury; vote to reject his frontman Chris Ngige. Chris Ngige is not good for you!

Tuesday, October 29, 2013


Icheoku says Lagos State's Governor Babatunde Fashola had a great opportunity with the flagging off of Anambra State APC gubernatorial candidate's Chris Ngigi's campaign at Onitsha, to formally apologise to Igbo people in their heartland over the fiasco of his deportation of their kits and kin from Lagos, but was MIA (missing in action). The governor was a no-show at the said APC's "historical" event in Igboland. Icheoku says if indeed Governor Fashola truly wanted an end to the debacle he created with that hateful deportation as he claimed, and sincerely meant the tendered "apology" for what he wrongfully did to fellow Nigerians, why did he not soldier on into Igboland to truly look them in the eye and say to them 'am sorry if my action rubbed you wrongly?' 

But instead he settled for that forsworn no-apology apology he tendered at the tiny Aka Ikenga forum in "HIS" Lagos as being entirely sufficient for what he did and requiring no further or additional effort at soothing frayed Igbo nerve and stayed off Igboland's headquarters? Icheoku says if indeed Governor Fashola felt forgiven by the Igbos and/or that his mea culpa before Aka Ikenga was all encompassing and that all is now honky-dory with the Igbos, why did he not follow his master Ahmed Bola Tinubu into Onitsha to prove that after the apology, that he once again finds himself at home in Igboland; and that the hurt he caused the Igbos by deporting them from Lagos is no longer hurting and he has been forgiven? But no, rather like a fowl which let foul air, the land of Igboland is in his pursuit and he would not dare be found near or around it; hence the wisdom to stay out of such "historic" event across the Niger, right? 

Icheoku says Igbo people of Anambra State must join other Igbos to register their displeasure over our peoples' deportation from Lagos by APC's Governor Fashola. They must in unison say to APC's Governor Fashola that his so called apology was neither sufficient nor was it properly tendered and channeled, and therefore not accepted. Igbo people of Anambra State must let APC's Governor Fashola know that Aka Ikenga is not Igbo people's recognized representative, hence not the proper medium to communicate to Igbo people whatsoever. Anambra State Igbos must drive it into Governor Fashola's ears that Oha-na-Eze Ndigbo and the Southeastern Governors Forum are the only true representatives of the Igbo people, hence any communication meant for the entire Igbo people, including an "apology", must be routed through either of this two agencies. 

Further, that the Igbo people do not and cannot expect a cloister of select few Igbo businessmen and professionals based in Lagos, who hardly visit home, who were neither appointed nor elected by them as their representatives, to be their middlemen for communicating apologies to them and will not listen to any such routed apology. Icheoku says Igbo people of Anambra State has only one way of strongly and most effectively communicating this message to APC's Governor Fashola and in unequivocal terms. By resoundingly rejecting Governor Fashola's APC from taking roots in Anambra State by proxy of the APC-tainted governorship candidate Chris Ngige, in the forthcoming governorship election in November, the message would have been sent to all Igbo-haters, who demean and denigrate Igbo people in Nigeria at every given opportunity, that enough is enough - NO MORE, NEVER AGAIN and NOT THIS TIME. 

It would be a symbolic gesture, made not out of hatred of Chris Ngige but to send a clear message to APC's Governor Fashola and the other Yoruba apologist Femi Fani Kayode that spiting Igbo people will not be rewarded or tolerated, nor would any of such their frontal assault on Igbo's general psyche ever be forgotten. To ignore this plea and otherwise in any event elect APC's Chris Ngige as governor of Anambra State this November, no matter under what color, subterfuge or disguise of his past proven record of performance, would be selling out to Yoruba's APC's Bola Tinubu and Governor Fashola. Such a salutary gesture would once again reinforce and reiterate the cliched opinion of other Nigerians that Igbos have no cored value; that Igbo people lack a political will to go the extra mile; that Igbo people lack the cohesion to fight and pursue a common purpose; that the Igbos are merely a motley of disorganize and dysfunctional people, with no collective agenda or plan to get anywhere politically in Nigeria; that all their handicaps are because they are confused and untutored in the act of real politics of numbers, guided by one united common front and voice and this is the sole reason they are always easily manipulated out of any serious contention in Nigeria's politics every time. 

A vote for Chris Ngige is a vote for APC; and a vote for APC is an automatic authorization of Bola Tinubu to do whatever and however pleases him, with the purse of Anambra State, Igboland's headquarters. Icheoku says after all the horrid experiences Igbo people have suffered in the hands of Yoruba people starting with Awolowo and Zik through Obasanjo's shutting down of Igbo businesses (Ibeto cement, Slok airlines, Hallmark Bank, Savannah Bank etc) to the most recent deportation of Igbos by Governor Fashola, it would be a great defeatism for Igbo people to just turn around and hand over to Yorubas our key State, Anambra. Igbo and Yoruba people are competitors in Nigeria and for one competitor to win the other must lose and igbos must not lose by such a wide margin of turning over our key state to the Yorubas. Igbo and Yoruba are arch rivals in Nigeria and this rivalry must and should continue in order for the Igbos to still remain competitive in Nigeria. So please Anambra Igbos do not play the possum or allow the Yorubas run a roughshod on you by surrendering your state to Bola Tinubu. By so doing, you would equally be ratifying APC's Governor Fashola's deportation of Igbos from Lagos and this should be a NO, NO. 

Furthermore, APC's bank-roller and controller-general in chief, Bola Tinubu, a scion of royalty, well versed in the things of culture and tradition being a prince of Isale Eko, found it very convenient and tolerable to literally invade another royalty's domain on a sacred day the king was marking his reign, just to hold a campaign rally? Why that particular day for the political rally if not a deliberate attempt to challenge the monarch's institutional authority? Icheoku queries were it the Oba of Lagos who was celebrating a royal event of same magnitude as the Ofala festival, would a similar political campaign rally or any other event been tolerated in Lagos or allowed to clash with a traditional festivities which was scheduled over one year ago thus giving sufficient notice to the world? Why that particular day to hold a political rally if not a deliberate attempt to sabotage the Obi's festivities? Icheoku asks would Bola Tinubu or any Igbo man for that matter dare assault a highly revered monarch of Lagos or any other Yoruba kingdom by holding a conflicting and somewhat confrontational event on a day festivities marking their reign were taking place? 

Icheoku asks why would Bola Tinubu's APC's political train so flagrantly invade Onitsha for a political rally while the Obi of Onitsha was celebrating his Ofala festival? Why couldn't the rally wait for another time or weekend following the completion of the Ofala festival? To add insult to injury, Bola Tinubu did not even have the cultural decency or a visitor's courtesy to visit the Ime-Obi to pay homage to the Obi for coming into his domain or indeed commiserate with him on  the occasion of marking his reign? Icheoku wonders what founded the effrontery of Bola Tinubu to so vagrantly disrespect a very high Igbo Majesty, the Obi of Onitsha Igwe Patrick Achebe and inside his domain if the APC was not seeking further confrontation and now inside Igboland? Icheoku queries would Bola Tinubu dare do this in Kano with the Emir of Kano or in Ife with the Ooni of Ife or in Oyo with the Alaafin of Oyo or in Benin with the Oba of Bini or in Sokoto with the Sarduana of Sokoto? Only in Igboland and you ask why? The simple answer seems to be because Bola Ige does not care a hoot about the sensibilities of the Igbo people and is indeed very scornful of the Igbos and their traditional institutions? As the sole financier and promoter in chief of the APC, Bola Tinubu bears sole responsibility for anything done wrong by the party sucklings including Ngige and for disrespecting the Obi of Onitsha. 

Icheoku says this is a perversion of the highest order of an Igbo revered institution that must not be tolerated by Igbo people. The fact that Chris Ngige was a party to this show of shameful disrespect to the institution of the Obi-ship of Onitsha and by extension the entire Igboland, being Igboland's highest ranking first class monarchy, is a call for a serious reprimand of all the transgressors including Chris Ngige. This will let Chris Ngige and his APC Yoruba sponsors know that they cannot come into Igboland and further denigrate the Igbo people including what they hold so dear to them - their first class traditional institution, and in such very arrogant and disrespectful manner. The APC should pay a price for their infra-dig; the APC should suffer a consequence for their spiteful treatment of the Obi of Onitsha  and the institution he represents in Igboland. Icheoku says the denial of APC an access to the purse of Anambra State would be a good measure. Therefore Icheoku calls on Anambra State Igbos to register their great displeasure over Bola Tinubu's disrespectful treatment of Igbo's first class monarch, the Obi of Onitsha, by saying no to APC and their front-man Chris Ngige this November 2013. In addition, Anambra Igbos MUST not sell-out politically to the Yorubas as that will be uprooting the very foundation of the only Igbo legacy party in Nigeria. As a matter of honor and pride, Anambra Igbos should endeavor to sustain the anchor of the only truly Igbo party in Nigeria and in memory of our war lord Ikemba Nnewi. At least do it for him; but in any other event, please do not settle for a sectional tribal party as represented by Bola Tinubu's APC and it does not and should not matter that Ngige is beloved as that will be politically suicidal for Anambra State and Igboland in general. 

Icheoku is emphatic that APC Bola Tinubu violated the sanctity of Obi of Onitsha's solemn Ofala ceremony by staging a campaign event on the same day the Obi was marking his reign to countermand the festivities in an unneeded rivalry. APC Bola Tinubu also spitefully failed, refused and/or neglected to pay the Obi of Onitsha a courtesy call and homage while in the Obi's domain, carrying out a campaign visit to Onitsha. It also did not matter to APC Bola Tinubu that the Obi in whose domain he was trying to stir trouble was celebrating his coronation as to warrant him going to felicitate with him on such an occasion and to wish him many more happy returns? A man as schooled in culture and tradition as APC Bola Tinubu should not have in the first place agreed to flag off any political campaign rally in Onitsha on the same day the Obi of Onitsha was celebrating his Ofala festival; but he chose to affront an institution which means so much to Igbos. The very act of holding a rival event in Onitsha, on the same day the Obi was celebrating his Ofala, by itself, without more, was indeed so confrontational in nature that were it in so many other traditional domains in Nigeria, may be the APC marauders led by Bola Tinubu would not have made it out alive from Onitsha; but thankfully the Obi was both a gentleman and a scholar, a very peaceful person and he restrained his subjects. 

In Bola Tinubu's Lagos, even the celebration of Eyoo masquerade leads to a near total and complete shut down of everything and who knows the fate which usually befalls any unlucky wanderer caught after dawn when their curfew is already in place; but the Obi of Onitsh's Ofala and in Onitsha was no big deal to this band of vagrants led by Bola Tinubu who invaded Onitsha for a political event while the Obi was marking his coronation? Any man or woman who is indeed respectful of a people would by the same token respect things endear to them including their traditional institutions; hence would not hold a confrontational event on the occasion as the Ofala festival. Assuming for the sake of advocacy that no Ofala festival was even taking place, a rather respectful Bola Tinubu, while visiting Onitsha, would have first paid homage to the custodian of Onitsha, the Obi of Onitsha. At least protocol demands that and respect for what the Obi represents and the institution's very high place in Igboland also make it imperative that any dignitary visiting Onitsha should stop by the Ime-Obi to extend felicitations to the Obi. But APC's Bola Tinubu did not any of that nor did he show any respect to His Majesty. A matter made worse because the Obi was celebrating his Ofala when APC Bola Tinubu and his APC vagrants invaded Onitsha and this did not weigh enough to move Bola Tinubu to do what is right by the Obi, by the people of Onitsha, by Anambra State and indeed the entire Igbo people and you ask yourself WHY? Icheoku's guess is because APC Bola Tinubu does not GIVE A DAMN about what the Igbo people or how they feel or think about their traditional institutions? 

Icheoku says Chris Ngige is in a wrong party. APC is for all intent and purpose a Southwest regional Yoruba party, in a vice stranglehold of Ahmed Bola Tinubu with some little North West Hausa/Fulani Buhari flavor. The broom symbol was Yoruba ACN's as well as one of its colors. Moreso all the prime officers of APC are Yoruba and Hausa/Fulani people without any Igbo South Easterner in any position of real strength, power or authority within the party; a matter made worse by the Islamic party symbolism of APC with Bola Tinubu and Muhammadu Buhari, both Muslims, calling all the shots. Icheoku queries why would the Igbo people sell out to this arrangement when Buhari has never condemned the incessant massacres of Igbo people in the North by his Islamic brothers Boko Haram terrorists? Bola Tinubu has also not spoken forcefully against the Islamic Boko Haram terrorist scourge whenever their victims were Igbo people unlike he did when those students were beheaded in Yobe recently? So who will protect Igbo people in an APC controlled government under this two men's leadership of the party, their antecedent considered? Therefore why give them front-row accommodation in the heartland of Igboland by handing them over Anambra State through Chris Ngige? 

Also knowing how ACN controlled South Western Yoruba States governors are beholden to Bola Tinubu, lavishing their States money on his birthdays and parceling out billions in over-inflated contracts to Bola Tinubu owned companies from Lagos to Oyo to Ogun to Edo and Oshun states, why should Bola Tinubu also be allowed to take over Onitsha and Nnewi markets revenues? Igbo money should be left for the Igbos and not used to further feather the nest of Bola Tinubu or any of his Yoruba controlled business interests or concerns, period. Admitted this may sound like a tribal goading in action but Icheoku says since the handshake across the Niger has not been consummated - not during Awo and Zik era, not during Ojukwu's repeated efforts; not during Obasanjo's government when he pleasured himself greatly with the number of Igbo businesses he closed down from Slok airlines to Ibeto cement to Hallmark bank to Savannah bank etc; and not as recently evidenced with the Governor Fashola's deportation of Igbos from Lagos saga and the repeated calls by demented Femi Fani Kayode for Igbo people to go home, what then is the point pretending that everything is honky-dory in Nigeria among the tribes and that it does not matter what party's platform Ngige runs on and who controls it? 

Just like election matters, political party's platform also equally do matter as somebody somewhere outside Igboland would automatically control the policy and agenda of the incoming APC government of Anambra State in the unfortunate event APC's Ngige is elected? In democracy, numbers matter and there will not be enough Ngiges in APC to stop Bola Tinubu and his boys from wresting the control of Anambra State purse from Igbo people and doing some wealth transfers across the Niger. If in doubt take a look at ACN controlled states of Western Nigeria and be the judge of Bola Tinubu's imperial control. Currently available evidence shows that Bola Tinubu controls his ACN governors lock and step, so an elected APC's Ngige would also be forced to subjugate himself to APC's godfather Bola Tinubu and will not have a say or strength to raise any objection on how Bola Tinubu wants Onitsha and Nnewi revenues to be shared? Icheoku says Igbo people of Anambra State must not allow themselves to wake up to discover that this nightmarish possibility becomes a reality and MUST endeavor to drain the swamp now before those crocodiles infest it. Bola Tinubu controlling Anambra State resources must not be allowed to happen, not NOW, not at any future time. 

Lastly Bola Tinubu was coy at Onitsha in not raising the APC Governor Fashola's deportation question or personally apologizing for it, afterall it was the act of his political son, his appointed governor of Lagos State. Conversely, is there anybody out there willing to challenge Icheoku that Bola Tinubu was not aware of the brouhaha caused by Fashola's deportation of his fellow Nigerians from a section of Nigeria despite not having the power or authority to so do? So why did Bola Tinubu not at least reiterate the apology and sought a confirmation that the apology was accepted and further express how deeply sorry he was that his political son acted in such utra vires divisive manner. But instead, he choose to be smart by half about it and remained taciturn on the matter, thinking that Igbo people are too shallow to remember that ugly incident as they cast their ballots to elect their next governor of Anambra State in November. Icheoku says this failure by Bola Tinubu to apologize for Fashola's deportation of Igbo people from Lagos is a gross wilful neglect and utter indifference to a big Igbo people's hurt in their believe in one Nigerian. It is a neglect by Bola Tinubu of a matter which so violently violated the heart and soul of every Igbo person that they still shudders in shock of disbelief that a Yoruba APC governor do not see them as Nigerians? It also shows that Bola Tinubu did not appreciate or refused to see the injustice complained of by the igbos - that Nigerian Igbos were forcibly deported from a section of their country, Lagos-Nigeria and it impacted their psyche. 

APC Bola Tinubu should be held vicariously liable for that depraved act of his appointed political son, APC Governor of Lagos State Fashola. By the same extension, APC's Chris Ngige of Anambra State SHOULD and MUST also be made to feel the heat of Igbo displeasure of what his APC Yoruba friend Fashola did to the Igbo people he wrongly deported from Lagos. Icheoku says since you can tell who a man is by knowing who his friends are, Chris Ngige's palling around with Igbo haters from across the Niger is not a good sign for Anambra State Igbos wellbeing. His being elected into government house Awka forebodes danger to our pride and dignity in Nigeria; therefore he must be stopped cold in his tracks - PLEASE DO NOT ELECT CHRIS NGIGE, GOVERNOR OF ANAMBRA STATE. 

A time like this calls for collective action. Icheoku does not dislike or hate Chris Ngige as a person; admitted Icheoku called him out when he went prostrate before Alusi Okija deity to swear oath of loyalty to his erstwhile political godfather Chris Uba who smuggled him into government house Awka during his first governorship journey; before they fell apart leading to the same Chris Ubah kidnapping him and later forcing him out of the same government house Awka through the courts. So Icheoku still questions whether a devil worshiper and a man who swears by deity like Chris Ngige is a fit and proper person to govern a predominantly Christian State like Anambra; and it does not matter that he bears the name CHRIS. A man who wheels and deals in such manner and who swears by deities for power, probably have also sworn by Oshun Goddess for Bola Tinubu to hand him over Onitsha and Nnewi money pots as a trade for being elected? Icheoku does not know for a fact, neither does any one else except the two parties; but suffice it to say that if he did it once then he probably could have done it again now. Icheoku says Anambra State should be governed by a Christian in faith and in practice; and someone who both publicly and privately hold the Christian tenets with honor. 

So you decide for yourself BUT personally Icheoku have decided to take some proactive action to campaign against Chris Ngige's election as governor of Anambra State. In the unfortunate event Anambra Igbos sellout to Yoruba Bola Tinubu and elects Ngige come November 2013, Icheoku would embark on some serious protest action. First Icheoku would boycott Anambra State for the duration of his governorship like Icheoku did of Nigeria when Baba Iyabo was president. Secondly all Icheoku's friends from and of Anambra State origin would be chewed out for allowing a goat to deliver while in tethers. Further and since Anambra State is now the designated heartland of Igboland, Icheoku would feel so guilty by ancestral roots that he will be forced to 'de-Igbonize' himself to a great degree. The dimension is not fully known but it will be enough that people would ask 'is this man of Igbo stork,' and Igbo people will ask, 'is he really one of us? 

Chris Ngige is guilty by association. His friends deported Igbo people from Lagos and they also in concert, disrespected our premier traditional institution. Chris Ngige is in a wrong, anti-Igbo, Islamic party. APC is controlled supremely by one Yoruba Muslim man, Bola Tinubu, assisted by one Hausa/Fulani Islamic fundamentalist, Muhammadu Buhari. Muhammadu Buhari hates the Igbos - his war records and brief presence as head of state spoke volume and it is on record that one of the reasons he staged his 1983 coup was to prevent Vice President Alex Ekwueme from eventually becoming president. It is also instructive that Buhari boycotted the Onitsha Chris Ngige's gubernatorial flag off campaign because he is not comfortable visiting igboland. Buhari also murdered Bartholomew Owo based on a retroactive decree. Buhari also imprisoned Vice President Alex Ekwueme while he put President Shagari under executive house arrest and you wonder why a deputy should be persecuted more than the man in charge? Buhari also once wondered on one his rare visit to Onitsha in 1984 how the Igbos managed the miracle of rebuilding their region after the destruction and deprivation of the civil war. 

Icheoku wonders why all these signs are not already flashing DANGER-RED to Igbo people of Anambra State. Igbo people must not allow themselves to be conquered by the Yorubas, beginning with Anambra State. We are rivals and for one to win the other has to lose; we must therefore not capitulate otherwise they will secure a victory over us. Bola Tinubu is not an Igbo lover either. So brethrens of Anambra State, Icheoku says do this for true blood of Igbo flowing inside of you. Do it to save Onitsha and Nnewi markets' pots of gold from being snatched and siphoned by greedy Bola Tinubu. Do it for all those Igbo people deported by APC Governor Fashola from Lagos. Do it for your motherland - JUST SAY NO TO Bola Tinubu's greedy expedition to conquer Igboland. Say no to Bola Tinubu and his band of very disrespectful brigands who invaded Onitsha while the Obi was celebrating his Ofala without even paying a courtesy visit to the Obi. 

Anambra Igbos, please SAY NO to Chris Ngige's governorship ambition to rule Anambra State as he is going to be a conduit for Bola Tinubu to get his filthy greedy hands on Igbo money. APC is not an Igbo party and they do not care about Igbos nor their traditional institutions. Admitted that Anambra Igbos may love Ngige BUT Ngige cannot stand against Bola Tinubu's greedy appetite that is coveting Onitsha and Nnewi markets' purses. Enough of all these Igbos are "nice" people, courted only when they want something out or from us, only to dumb us and say so long until next time? Ngige may be a saint and a performer past governor BUT he is in an anti-Igbo political party and thus literally in bed with the enemy. The devil's train in which Ngige is hitching a ride to Awka governor's mansion will not bring any good tidings to Igbo people other than influenza. The operators of the train have no love for the Igbo people as exhibited by the recent deportation of Igbo people from Lagos by one of them. Then factor in the continued haranguing of an Igbo daughter Bianca by a prominent member of that party, APC Femi Fani Kayode; admitted the loud mouth is on CRACK which must have cracked his brains alongside his perpetually gaping mouth that oozes with putrid offal? It is also pertinent to note that APC Bola Tinubu did not mention either the APC's Fashola's deportation or APC's Femi Fani Kayode tirades against the Igbos while flagging off APC's Ngige's gubernatorial campaign in Igbo heartland Onitsha and you ask yourself, why? 

The solution and the only nuclear option to stop this evil plans of mortgaging Igbo prosperity to the Yoruba Southwest's control via Bola Tinubu, after their Obafemi Awolowo tried in vain to stifle it with his inhumane twenty pounds and indigenisation decree fiscal and monetary policies, is to not bite the bait that is Chris Ngige. The Ngige carrot, being dangled before the Igbos in Anambra State, is a poison pill that will cause untoward hardship and irreparable damage to the standing of the Igbo people in Nigeria and Igbos MUST reject it and thereby refuse to play second fiddle to our arch rivals, the Yoruba people. Anambra Igbos must tell APC thanks but NO to the Ngige offer; and to Ngige, although we love you BUT you are in a wrong party. Igbo people of Anambra State must not and should never surrender or mortgage their hard-earned prosperity to Bola Tinubu's greed or to the Yorubas' overreaching control. Icheoku says if surrendering Anambra State to the Yorubas is the only way the elusive handshake across the Niger can ever take place, may the two hands hang up in the air in perpetuity, never to clasp one another. It was not done in the past by our previous generation and it must not be done NOW by the present generation. Icheoku says NO to APC and hereby calls on Igbos of Anambra State to also say NO to a Yoruba intended domination of the Igbos. Please say NO to Bola Tinubu's greedy coveting of Onitsha and Nnewi markets treasuries which he plans to execute by proxy of Chris Ngige. The silver bullet - REJECT NGIGE come November.
