Nigeria's president, Goodluck Jonathan, was defeated in his bid for re-election. This is a tremendous blow to the world, since I cannot think of any other world leader who has anywhere near as good a name.
More importantly, when he lost, he conceded defeat and is turning power over to his successor. This is the first time this has ever happened in Nigeria, and thus a significant step forward for the country. Good on you, Goodluck.
