Biden and Trump are said to have been extra ordinary personalities, very rich in ideological status, human resource control and wealth creation but the fear of the unknown has made politicians slack in their phraseology, the “winner takes it all syndrome”
In a chat with the press, President Buhari, fmr president Obasanjo and many notable political leaders in Nigeria have congratulated the US President-Elect Joe Biden for his election winning against the sitting President Donald Trump.
In his tweet, President Buhari had ealier sent a congratulatory message to Biden but the fear is the imagination of majority Nigerians that such a democratic process May be far fetched in the subsequent elections in Nigeria.
His tweet reads, “Congratulations to US President-Elect Joe Biden on his election at a time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs”
“His election is a reminder that “DEMOCRACY” is the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government by peaceful means”
Can this same process work in Nigeria? pundits frowned.
Meanwhile, though the pronouncement is yet to be declared, Joe Biden has assured that US stand together as one America. “We will rise stronger than we were before, he fired.
We are preparing to lead on Day One, ensuring the Biden-Harris administration is able to take on the most urgent challenges we face: protecting and preserving our nation’s health, renewing our opportunity to succeed, advancing racial equity, and fighting the climate crisis”

If you add up every of the electoral votes,
the total will come to 538.
So if any presidential candidate wins the total vote in each of these respective States, such candidate goes with the allocated electoral votes for that State won.
The parties that gets up to 270 electoral votes becomes the President. That is why a Democrat Party can have a total of 70MM votes, while the Republican has 67MM votes and would still win the seat of the Presidency.
Amongst few other considerations, States are essentially allocated electoral votes, based on their contribution to the economy of the Nation. Begining from Alaska and seven other Nations, who are allocated 3 electoral votes, and it continues up until the biggest and largest State, California which is allocated 55 electoral votes.
Reliable source revealed that, JOE BIDEN is a man that has defied the myriad of odds following the facts below written;
Joe Biden was not a good student in college. His wife Nelia and daughter Naomi died in a car crash, while his two sons were badly injured in 1977. In 2015, his son Beau died of brain cancer. Joe himself suffered from bleeding in the brain and needed brain surgery twice.
In 2016, after serving as Obama’s vice for 8yrs, he was passed over and the presidential ticket was given to Senator Clinton.
In 2020, he was mocked for being old, and flagrantly mocked by Trump for his gaffes while making public speeches. This same man has garnered the most votes ever recorded in any US presidential election, and has turned Georgia, a traditional red state-republican to democratic state-blue.
The question is, what has God seen in this man who suffered life tragedies, was not an excellent student, is not eloquent but rather posses signs of cognitive decline per his gaffes, and certainly very old – 78yrs by the time he enters office-oldest president to assume office in the US..?
The answer is destiny.
Its lessons are numerous to state that whatever deformity one posses, whether ex convict status, lack of intelligence, lack of education, poor background, gender inequality, creed, sexual orientation, etc., focus on your dreams because if it is your destiny no one can stop you.
