So last Saturday’s presidential election has come and gone with General Buhari emerging the winner. The whole political fiasco leading up to the election was really something.
This election presents a changing dimension in the Nigerian way of thinking bringing about firsts in soo many aspects: the first time the opposition defeated the ruling party; the first time an incumbent was voted out of office and more importantly, the first time in Africa that an incumbent president who lost an election called up the opposition to congratulate him and ask his supporters to remain calm and accept the results.
And that singular action made him a hero. That singular action has redeemed Nigeria to an extent in the international community even Africa as a whole, showing us as people who are no longer willing and ready to do anything to remain in power. He was able to turn the defeat into a victory for although he lost, he still remains the headlines in the news and in my own opinion should win a nobel peace prize.
Your thoughts biko! !!
