Nigeria's New President

(CNN) Post-election violence continues in northern Nigeria, highlighting the deep divide between the mostly Muslim north and the majority Christian south. On Friday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan warned armed protesters that “enough was enough”.

The incumbent won the April 16th election against former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari, sparking chaos in the north. The violence has killed more than 150 people and displaced thousands from their homes.

Our Christian Purefoy was at the polls during the presidential election and witnessed the moment when the winner was announced.

    A peoorsscr as large as Paypal (Ebay) can have problems like this. I dont know that a draconian dump them measure is really warranted. Our company had a processing issue with Wells Fargo last year but it was resolved in due course and all is well. It's unfortunate that Paypal doesnt have a better mechinism to alert merchants and customers to issues that take place after enhancements to their systems, but this is really nothing new. Dropping Paypal from your system would be a dumb move.
