This preview shows 1 out of 2 pages.

West Africa – Nigeria Presidential election just wrapped up and resulted in the dethroning of the old president and an incoming new president This has repercussions to all of South Africa and even to the rest of the world Buhari – new president -- Goodluck Jonathan – old president Many people in Nigeria are celebrating Nigeria has a LOT of political corruption so people thought that the old president was going to “win” even if he actually lost (top 10 most corrupt places on planet Earth) Goodluck very quickly admitted defeat – margin of voting was very overwhelming so it wasn’t worth fighting (2.5 million vote difference). Cheating is common and giving up presidential seat easily is very uncommon Change of political parties – Buhari is from the opposite party as Goodluck (APC, Buhari’s party, has never been in presidential party while Goodluck’s party, People’s Democratic Party, has held power for around 15-20 years) Peaceful transition between both different leaders AND different political parties – true democracy

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
