Excerpt:

Girl child education numbers are up. Polio numbers are down (we had new incidences, but then we were prepared). Foreign Direct Investment numbers are up. Housing numbers are up. New HIV incidences are down (though death from HIV is increasing). Maternal mortality is down. Infant mortality is down. Inflation by some measures is down. Number of new businesses registered are up. Ease of doing business is up. Proportion of population with access to improved water is up. Share of households with internet is up. Job creation is up even though population and poverty are running faster. Growth has slowed – but it’s a dip, not a trend. Our elections have also gotten progressively freer and fairer.

These are not Buhari victories. These are the victories of stable and competitive democracy.
