Nigeria’s outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan Outgoing Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has said that his friends deserted him after he lost Nigeria’s elections in March.Goodluck was defeated in a close election by his opposition opponent Muhammadu Buhari ion the elections that were said to be closely contested and the first to be worn by an opposition candidate.Speaking on Sunday Goodluck said that some of his friends deserted him shortly after he conceded defeat to his rival General Muhammadu Buhari in the March election.Jonathan publicly conceded defeat to Buhari on March 31, a decision which was commended by local and foreign commentators and doused tension in the country. “Some hard decisions have their own costs.According to a report by AFP, Goodluck said , ”No doubt about that. It is a very costly decision but I must be very ready to pay for it,” Jonathan said during a farewell church service in Abuja.Jonathan’s public admission of defeat in the nail-biting election came more than six hours after he rang Buhari to concede, earning him widespread praise for statesmanship.“If you take certain decisions, you should know that people close to you will even abandon you at some point.I tell people that more of my so-called friends will disappear.”Many party faithful and erstwhile loyalists of Jonathan have either crossed over to Buhari’s All Progressives Congress or made harsh statements against Jonathan’s party or its leaders.Jonathan said he was not surprised by the desertions or statements by his former loyalists, adding that former South African president Frederik de Klerk faced a similar situation when he decided to abolish minority rule in that country.Jonathan said that de Klerk’s marriage to his wife, Marike, broke down after he took that decision. “But that is the only decision that made South Africa to still be a global player.If by this time we still have minority rule in South Africa, nobody would have been talking about South Africa in the present generation,” he said. He said that ministers who served under him should brace themselves for “persecution” following his loss and his decision to concede defeat.Buhari, a former military leader, is scheduled to be sworn into office on May 29th.

He ran every horse in his barn and won with all of them.Catch is, the 66-year-old trainer has only one horse, a five-year-old mare he also bred named Kaydetre, who broke her maiden in Friday’s first race, leading throughout the one mile test taken off the turf and run on the main track.A massive overlay at 6-1 on the morning line, Kaydetre won by three-parts of a length under Brice Blanc and paid $50.40 to win, earning a handsome $33,000 for Randall, who also owns the old gray mare, bred in Kentucky by David and his wife, Vida.Randall’s nom de course is Ranch Runners Ltd. Inc., named for the horse transportation company he formerly operated. The horse is named for Golden State Warriors’ superstar Kevin Durant (kay-de-tre), formerly of the Oklahoma Thunder.“We’re big fans,” said Randall, a native of Billings, Montana. “My grandson, Mino Solomon, was in charge of ticket sales for the Oklahoma Thunder and now holds a similar position with the Los Angeles Rams.”Randall, popular with his peers on the backstretch, got his trainer’s license in 1980 after running his horse transportation business for several years. Congratulations were the order of the day Saturday morning after Kaydetre’s victory.“I had one horse before Kaydetre, and that was her sister,” Randall pointed out. “I had one horse before that, and it was her mom. I like having one horse to mess with and enjoy. I don’t want all those headaches.“I had to lay up Kaydetre a couple times because she had some problems, but time is a great friend when you’ve got problems. She gets really game on the front end. That’s where she wants to be and they weren’t going to catch her yesterday.”Though he’s in his comfort zone with numbers now, Randall’s stable could double at any time. “I have a two-year-old out of Kaydetre’s sister, an Arch mare, and she’s back in foal,” Randall said, “but I’m just taking it one at a time with something I can afford.“You get horse-poor and it’s not fun then. You get too many bills. I’ve retired from the vanning business so this is enough.“It’s exciting to win, especially when you’ve bred the horse and bred their mom; it’s a family thing. That’s my joy, breed them and develop them to reach their potential.“I’ve been doing this a lot of years, just enjoying the life at the race track. We’ll give Kaydetre some time, get her feet back under her and let her keep doing what she does.”SINGLE TICKET RAINBOW PICK SIX JACKPOT CARRYOVER OF $148,819.50There is a 20 cent Single Ticket Pick Six Jackpot carryover of $148,819.50 going into Saturday at Santa Anita.A total of 57 horses were entered on the 10-race card and are eligible to run in Saturday’s Rainbow Six sequence, making for average field size of more than nine runners per race.
