Peter Obi, a Nigerian businessman and former governor of the state of Anambra, is now the favorite to become the next president of Nigeria, according to a recent survey done for Bloomberg by Premise Data Corp.
According to the poll’s findings, Obi, a third-party candidate, has the support of two-thirds of the respondents.
Obi has maintained an insurmountable lead in all six surveys that Premise Data Corp has conducted for Bloomberg so far. The Premise poll, which polled 2,384 Nigerians between January 26 and February 4 using a smartphone app, was reflective of the demographics of the nation.
66% of those who stated they had already chosen how to vote—93% of participants—said they would vote for Obi. In a previous Premise survey, which was released by Bloomberg in September before the formal election campaign began, Obi received a slightly higher 72% of the votes from respondents who were certain of their vote.
In contrast, the two parties that have controlled Nigerian politics since 1999 fared poorly, with Atiku Abubakar of the PDP obtaining 10% and Bola Tinubu of the APC garnering 18% of the electorate. Obi’s candidacy has gained substantial pace despite being derided by his rivals as a “social media candidate.”
