It's a wonderful day for me and i obviously believe for more than many of you.The weekend began so well with Joe Wilfred Tsonga winning his first tournament in the Paris Tennis Open and subsequently the stunning victory of lewis Hamilton in the Formula 1 world championships,after a drammatic show down in Brasile to become the first black and youngest winner of this competition.And that's where i affirmed the fact that"GOD NO DI SLEEP" and i knew the miracle was on the way.
It was 5AM in the morning here in Cameroon and we kept vigil all night long waiting for this HISTORIC MOMENT.In Africa we say "GOD NO DI SLEEP" meaning that God doesn't sleep.Infact,God's time is the best and he sent us this man BARACK OBAMA to enable MARTIN LUTHER KING's famous "i have a dream" to become reality,at a moment when the world needed this dream at the most,the whole world i mean.
Barack Obama made history early today by becoming America’s first black president.
'It's been a long time coming, but tonight... change has come to America,' the president-elect told jubilant supporters in Chicago."The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America -- I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you -- we as a people will get there," Obama said in Chicago, Illinois, before an estimated crowd of up to 240,000 people.
Americans emphatically elected Democrat Barack Obama as their first black president Tuesday, in a transformational election, which will reshape US politics and the US role on the world stage.
Obama, 47, will be inaugurated the 44th US president on January 20, 2009, and inherit an economy mired in the worst financial crisis since the 1930s, two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and a nuclear showdown with Iran.
His presidency also marks a stunning social shift, with Obama, the son of Kenyan father and white mother from Kansas, the first African American president of a nation still riven by racial divides.
