The poll recently conducted by a public advocacy group We2Geda Foundation revealed that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, is ahead of other candidates by 51 per cent.
The poll result was signed by Ibrahim Abdulkareem Chairman, Board of Trustees of We2Geda, and Muna Obioha, a member of the BoT.
The group said 51 per cent of respondents suggested voting for Obi as their preferred candidate, 25 percent suggested voting for Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ranked third in the voter preference poll with 19 per cent.
“Further analysis also shows that Peter Obi remained a consistent favourite in the four major geopolitical zones including North-Central, South-South, South-West and South-East, while Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was the poll leader in the NorthEast and North-West zones,” the group said.
We2Geda said Nigerians between 26 and 50 years constituted the highest number of respondents, which was a random survey with a total of 15,438 registered voters in 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.
