Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, defeated other candidates, according to the results of a poll released by the ANAP Foundation on Thursday.
The presidential campaign teams of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) have all expressed their displeasure with the election.
According to the poll, Obi won, Tinubu and Atiku tied for second, and Kwankwaso, the former governor of Kano State, finished first.
Kwankwaso Reacts to Election Poll Abdulmumin Jubril, the NNPP presidential campaign council’s spokesperson, stated during an interview on Channels TV that the NOI poll had historically been projected incorrectly in response to the poll.
He pointed out that the NOI poll from 2015 predicted that the incumbent president Goodluck Jonathan would win; however, Muhammadu Buhari ended up winning.
In the next three to four months, Nigerians will witness Kwankwaso’s lockdown of the northern region of the country, Jubril noted.
He described himself as “a good person (pilot) in a bad party (aeroplane) called APC” when discussing the chances of other presidential candidates.
He added that Atiku has a chance of garnering a respectable number of votes in the election of 2023 and that Obi and his supporters are deceiving themselves.
PDP Response to NOI Survey
Daniel Bwala, the PDP campaign spokesperson, asserted that because the poll was conducted online, Obi received the most votes.
He added that the majority of Obi’s supporters on Twitter are bots rather than actual people, noting that 57.5% of them do not reside in Nigeria.
According to Bwala, most of his supporters do not possess voter identification cards and may not travel to Nigeria to cast their ballots.
The result of the poll, he continued, “is a true reflection of Peter’s enjoyment of the euphoria of hallucination.”
Atiku would receive more votes in the upcoming election, according to Bwala, since President Buhari won’t be running in the 2023 elections.
APC responds to a poll that projects Obi as the superior candidate.
There is no logic to the poll, according to Bayo Onanuga, the spokesman for the APC presidential campaign council.
The NOI poll gives our candidates 18% support in the South-West, which is our base, Onanuga said. “If you look at it, the reason why you have to dismiss this is this. You don’t need to conduct a poll to understand that is where our candidate is strongest. And when they traveled to the northeast, they again supported our candidate with 18% of the vote, whereas in the southeast, they supported Peter Obi with 64%. You can see that this has no logical foundation.
