by Emmanuel Osanedum

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

WINNERS
Annie Macaulay
Undisputably, the mother of 2face’s daughter Isabella won the day – as the one woman whom the singer has chosen to spend the rest of his life with. Joy to the world!

Ibrahim Lamourde
The acting chairman of the EFCC was finally confirmed substantive by the National Assembly yesterday – now to see how that will pan out.

Rick Santorum
He’s up in national polls, up in Ohio, money is pouring in from all sides – and the former Senator is looking more and more like a winner in the Republican presidential race.

AC Milan
Certainly, this much is obvious – with a 4-0 win at the Champion’s League knockout stage, this English side is showing everyone who’s boss.

Zambia
With its recent wins, the Southern African country is fully in the game – climbing up to top 50 in the latest FIFA football ranking.

LOSERS
Honduras
The country’s government announced that 475 people escaped from Comayagua prison and 356 are missing and presumed dead after fire in jail.

Ghana
10 months into the 2012 general elections, the country ruling party was embroiled yesterday in a contracts payment scandal that won’t go away soon.

Nigerian sports
It wasn’t a good day. First, we hear that athlete Soji Fasugba has dumped Nigeria and joined the British navy, and then soon after the Super Eagles tumbled 9 places in FIFA ranking.

Habibu Bama
With Nigeria’s secret service identifying the ex-soldier suspect in the Madalla Christman Day bombing – the Borno state indigence can’t be having a ball at the moment.

Arsene Wenger
The Arsenal coach can’t seem to put a foot right these days, no? Not only did he lead his team into predictable loss, he just can’t seem to keep his mouth shut! We shudder.
