ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

As the campaign for the 2023 presidential election kicks off, latest opinion poll has shown the candidate of Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi with a consistent lead margin to win next year election, reports ITREALMS. 
The outcome of the online poll conducted by We2Geda Foundation and made available to ITREALMS, Tuesday informed that Mr Peter Obi, ahead of others with some 51 per cent of registered voters’ support.

The poll was conducted on registered voters by the We2Geda Foundation to deepen the conversation about the country’s 2023 elections and to help political analysts address critical issues such as candidate preferences and key socioeconomic dynamics at play in the upcoming elections.

We2Geda randomly surveyed a total of 15,438 registered voters in 36 states and the FCT.

This, it stated, was done entirely through fully randomised direct phone calls in local languages, to achieve real representation of registered voters across Nigeria.

Respondents came from across local governments and were stratified proportionally by key demographics, e.g. rural versus urban, gender and age.

A statement from the foundation signed by Ibrahim Abdulkareem Muna Obioha explained that the proportion of Nigerians polled from each state was equal to the state’s contribution to the national voters’ register, as published by INEC.

For instance, as Abia contributes 2.3 per cent of the national voters’ register, Abia also made up 2.3 per cent of respondents in the randomised poll.

The same process applied in every state, and polls within each state were 100 per cent randomised.

Respondents were asked structured questions to assess their opinion and preparation for the 2023 general elections. Questions include: “Are you planning to vote? Have you picked up your PVC? What do you think are the top three issues/challenges you face in Nigeria? How important are the 2023 elections to you? Who and which party will you vote for in 2023?” among other things.

In addition, the survey uncovered the top issues deciding voters’ choices in the upcoming election, including the need to tackle insecurity (42 per cent), corruption (18 per cent), jobs (9 per cent) and education (8 per cent) likely related to the ASUU strike.

Nigerians aged between 26 and 40 years of age, and those between 41 and 50, constituted the highest number of respondents, with the latter higher by a slim margin.

The statement said, “The result of the WE2Geda poll showed a clear lead for the Labour Party (LP) presidential flag-bearer, Mr Peter Obi, with 51 per cent of respondents suggesting voting for him as their preferred candidate if the presidential election were held today.”
