This was how Qoutara and Gbagbo started their arguement that grew immensely in Cote D' Ivore and many innocent souls went with it. Why can't we accept defeat in good faith as africans and believe that there is another day to come. Afteral, it is said that when a ram withdraws it goes to bring forth power. My candid advice to all the contestants in the 2011 Presidential election in Nigeria is that they should never stop moving because there is still another election coming up in the next 4 years. Let us all live in peace and unity.
