The results of a recently conducted poll by NOI Polls, commissioned by ANAP Foundation, have shown that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, would emerge the winner of the upcoming presidential elections, if held today.
The poll which was conducted this month points to a three-horse presidential race between Obi, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress and Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party.
However, the results of the poll placed Rabiu Kwankwaso, of the New Nigeria People’s Party, fourth on the list, thereby earning him the title of the “dark horse”.
“The results showed a significant lead for Mr Peter Obi with 21% of voters proposing to vote for him if the presidential election were to be conducted today; and 13% each proposing to vote for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who are both tied in second place. Dr Rabiu Kwankwaso was a distant fourth with 3% of voters proposing to vote for him,” a statement by ANAP foundation announcing the result of the poll shows.
It was however explained in the statement Obi’s 8 percent point lead may be insignificant as it may not be enough to significantly separate him from the other leading candidates, scoring 21%, 13% and 13% respectively.
It says that undecided voters and those who prefer not to reveal their preferred candidate add up to a whopping 32% and 15% respectively, adding that the gender split of undecided voters shows that 39% of women are undecided versus 27% of male voters.
The percentage of registered voters according to ANAP foundation is as follows in each of the zones – 99% in the North East, 90% in the South South, the North Central and the North West respectively. The lowest registered voter percentages were in the South East with 88% and the South West with 85%.
The campaigns for the presidential elections will begin at the end of September while the presidential elections will hold in February 2023.
