Nigeria’s Goodluck Jonathan: Five reasons why he lost

Goodluck Jonathan is the first Nigerian sitting president to lose an election

Nigerians are so used to the idea that an incumbent should win presidential elections that President Goodluck Jonathan’s failure to beat Gen Muhammadu Buhari needs some explaining. Here are five reasons why the opposition won:

1: Harder to rig

Past elections have been marred by serious irregularities and suspicions of rigging. In 2007 observers said the presidential poll was not “credible”. In 2011 the vote was considered to be better run but observers said that rigging and fraud still took place.

This time the electoral commission took more steps to prevent rigging, including new biometric voters cards.

Also President Jonathan’s party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), had lost control of some key states which meant it could not control the electoral process there.

2: Boko Haram and security

The election took place against the background of an Islamist insurgency in the north-east of the country. The Boko Haram militant group has killed 20,000 people and forced some three million others from their homes and President Jonathan was criticised for not getting to grips with this.

The poll was delayed for six weeks to give time for the security situation to improve, but even though most areas controlled by Boko Haram were recaptured, it seems to have come too late for many people.

3: United opposition, crumbling PDP

The extra six weeks of vigorous campaigning by the PDP was not enough to halt the slide in the party’s fortunes

The PDP has been described as an election-winning machine. When it was created it united a northern elite with leading politicians from the south, but that alliance has broken up and the party lost some key figures. Even former President Olusegun Obasanjo came out against Mr Jonathan.

At the same time, the opposition managed to unite under the All Progressives Congress (APC) banner. The last six weeks of desperate and dirty campaigning, in which the APC responded in kind, was not enough to turn the tide.

4: Economy

Nigeria’s economy is growing but the wealth is not being spread around

Nigeria is Africa’s biggest oil producer and its largest economy, but many fail to feel the benefits with nearly half the population living below the poverty line. Continued corruption is seen as partly being to blame.

National income is due to grow by more than 5% this year and next year, but people did not seem in the mood to thank Mr Jonathan for this.

5: Time for a change

APC supporters chanted “change” wherever they went and it seems to have caught the mood. The PDP has been in power since the end of military rule in 1999, and 2015 is the year that Nigerians decided that someone else should have a go at sorting things out.

President-elect Buhari now has to prove he really can change things.

An apple a day may not keep the doctor away after all – new study finds

 An apple a day probably won’t keep the doctor away, but it may keep you out of the pharmacy, a new study has found.

Researchers from Dartmouth Medical School decided to find out whether the old adage about eating the crunchy fruit daily and staying healthy is actually true. To do so, they followed the apple eating habits of more than 8,000 people for three years, according to the study they published in today’s JAMA Internal Medicine.

Roughly 9 percent of the group munched a small apple a day on a regular basis, the researchers found. And, although 39 percent of the apple lovers avoided seeing a physician each year, compared to 33 percent of the non-apple eaters, once the investigators adjusted for factors like education, age and other health habits, the researchers said the difference wasn’t all that significant. However, apple lovers did fill marginally fewer prescriptions for medications, the researchers reported.

The study, while entertaining, did have some limitations. The fact that all the information in the investigation was self-reported and the number of doctor visits couldn’t be explicitly linked to munching on apples are two of the more serious ones, noted Dr. Sharonne N. Hayes, cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Hayes added the researchers didn’t look into why people went to the doctor.

“The apple eaters were highly educated and less likely to smoke,” Hayes said. “It could be that their visits to the doctor were for preventive reasons rather than illness.”

Hayes pointed out that the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” originated in the late 1800s, a time when going to the doctor was always associated with illness. But these days, seeing a doctor could lead to finding undetected medical problems and avoiding poor health, she noted.

Here in Ghana the price of a juicy apple – red or green, ranges between Ȼ1.00 and Ȼ2.00 respectively.

“Apples probably won’t cure the woes of our health care system, but they certainly won’t hurt,” Hayes said.
