    PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN WILL UNDOUBTEDLY GO DOWN IN THE HISTORY OF NIGERIA AND AFRICA INDEED AS A STATESMAN OF THE HIGHEST CLASS. HE WILL BE REMEMBERED FOREVER FOR HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THE ADVANCEMENT OF DEMOCRACY AND THOUGHT LEADERSHIP IN AFRICA. HE IS GOING AWAY, BUT HOW ABOUT THE MAINTAINING THE CONTINUITY OF WOLRD CLASS SERVICES OF PEOPLE, SUCH AS Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. SHOULD BUHARI KEEP HER AS MINISTER IN HIS CABINET?

    President Goodluck Jonathan's historic phone call -- conceding defeat to his opponent after a democratic election -- was a first for Nigeria and a rarity on the continent.

    The irony and the ecstasy, let's call it. It took Goodluck Jonathan losing an election to gain the world's respect. As Mo Ibrahim, one of Africa's most prominent democracy advocates, said in a public letter to Mr. Jonathan: "If you are seeking a legacy, you have definitely achieved it."

    It was a tremendous moment for democracy, Nigeria and Africa's future. There's no doubt about that.

    Commentators have been fond of saying that it wasn't about who won or lost this election, but how they played the game. It has been lauded, quite simply, as: "a victory for democracy," or "a victory for Nigeria." And it's true -- the victory is in the new reality that if Nigerians are dissatisfied with a president, they can vote him out. A right so simple and yet often so elusive in Africa.
