Winners&Losers is a new column that does a roundup of the day’s major news by distilling the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ of the day’s news cycle. As always, you are welcome to agree or disagree sharply below!

WINNERS:

National Summit Group
After a postponement, Tony Uranta’s National Summit Group finally met today – and it was a well-attended affair.

Omawumi

Obama
A new ABC poll shows that America’s President Obama opened up a lead over Republican Mitt Romney in a hypothetical general election matchup.
Eucharia Anunobi
News hit the blogosphere today that the actress has stepped up in her spiritual ‘race’. From being an Evangelist, she has now been ordained as a pastor.

Egypt

LOSERS:

Syria
Today, the US finally closed its embassy in that country and recalled all its staff. It’s an ominous sign for anyone who recalls Libya and Ghaddadi.

Apple
A global change.org petition today returned the spotlight to the company’s dirty little secret – Chinese workers dying under terrible work conditions.

Susan G. Komen
The cancer charity continues to reel from its universally panned decision to withdraw funding from Planned Parenthood. This has refused to go.

Matthew Mbu
The two-time minister and diplomat from the Ogoja LGA of Cross River was announced dead today. May his soul rest in peace.

Kano
The dreaded Boko Haram sect struck in the Northern state today – despite the curfew imposed in January. The scourge continues..
