My colleague,Emenike Ejekwu and I are up monitoring the US Presidential election results live on the net.From the latest Electoral College votes,Obama is leading McCain by 195 to 90.From projections,there are every indications that Obama is coasting to victory.Amina Gabriel,another of my colleague based in Lagos earlier told me that people have embarked on all night 'fasting and prayer sessions' for Obama to win this election.
Nigerians eagerly look forward to this new dawn...with hopes that one day a similar situation will happen in their country when an 'Obama' will be voted into power.This just sums up the enthusiasm being expressed far from the American centre stage.
