President Yayi Boni Of Benin Republic "Defeats" Nigeria's Jonathan To Become AU Chairman
Posted: January 29, 2012 - 15:29

By SaharaReporters, New York

The President of Benin republic, Yayi Boni, has been elected as the chairman of the African Union (AU) after a group of West African nations led by Ghana opposed the candidature of Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan.

Boni will be taking over the chairmanship of the African Union (AU) from Equatorial Guinea's dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema.

Mr. Jonathan had injected himself into the contest as a last minute attempt to become the chair of AU but his effort was stoutly opposed by Ghana leading several West African nations that claimed Mr. Boni's nomination was already agreed upon at a mini-summit of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

It was not clear if Mr. Jonathan withdrew his candidature after ECOWAS member states blocked his bid to become the AU chair. However, Mr. Boni was announced as the new chair of the African Union and takes over as Chairman at the 18th AU Summit in Addis Ababa today.

Why would somebody with a baggage of problems which has not been solved bother himself with the leadership of the AU?
Re: Yaya Boni Defeats Gej To Become AU Chairman. by belabela: 4:49pm On Jan 29, 2012
Thank God GEJ did not win. I can't imagine the whole continent getting the kind of fresh air that emanates from his good-luck.

At least in a free and fair contest goodluck has no place but objectivity!

The poor sod must have thought of bribing them with 7000 dollars each, as was done in the PDP primaries at eagle square or thinks someone suffering from acute renal desaese will die for him to clinch the seat.


The end of LUCK!.

Okay . . .So what's the glee about
Re: Yaya Boni Defeats Gej To Become AU Chairman. by bayooooooo: 7:46pm On Jan 29, 2012
Even with three ministers in Ministry of Foreign Affairs, no one could give GEJ a simple piece of advice that jumping into a contest at last minute in a structure like AU with a formidable opposition in South Africa that commands the respect of the rest of Africa would spell disaster for him. No wonder, it was very easy to mobilise against him.

The position is ceremonial but it's one with influence and if manned by a very cerebral and intellectually endowed president, a country can use the platform to project her image and make a big capital out of it. Someone like GEJ, who did not see any thing wrong standing at the third role in a group photograph is the least competent to run such an organisation.
