1. Buhari is 72years, Nana Addo will also be 72 in next year's elections

This particular elections in Nigeria and the results therein seem to show a starting trend in Africa where the "old-age" and apparent frailty of the opposition candidature does not adversely affect the votes amassed.

2. Jonathan is 58, John Mahama will also be 58 in next year's election

This is a sheer observation which may not necessarily mean much, but you never know. Refer to point 1 above.

3. Jonathan took over from his boss Musa Yaradua as president after his death, Mahama also after Prez Mills death.

Coincidence much? Or maybe not, both Mahama & Goodluck took over their respective seats of power after the death of the sitting president. A friend says, "the way they both came, is how they would both leave".

4. The PDP has the umbrella as it's emblem, the NDC has same

Does this explain it?

 

5. The NDC has red,white,black and green, the PDP has similar

6. Nana addo is going for president after several attempts, Buhari is doing same.

A pundit on CITI FM, an Accra based radio station, listed "pity-votes" as one of the main reasons why Buhari won. Pity votes refer to the votes a candidate amasses after the populace believes it's time to give him/her a chance after numerous failed trials

7. Jonathan & Mahama won against Buhari & Nana Addo respectively under bizzare circumstances

In Ghana, the circumstances were more bizarre, leading to a seven month long court case, where "pink sheets" and others came into play after NPP, Ghana's main opposition party cried of a "gargantuan" rigging.

8. Both Jonathan & Mahama government have been full of massive corruption, mismanagement of the economy and bad governance

This may be subjective but, GYEEDA, SADA and very lavish President's daughter's weddings may change your mind.

9. Jonathan and Mahama are very very close friends.. they travel a lot together.
