There has been an increased level of tension between the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressive Congress political parties' campaigns leading to February 14 presidential election. It is only a serious and very deliberate game changer that can stop the APC candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.
As you read this, African Independent Television (AIT) has suddenly stopped an online poll where Buhari was resoundingly beating President Goodluck Jonathan.
Buhari’s lead in the poll was despite a sponsored documentary against him that was being repeatedly shown on AIT stations across Nigeria, and online.
According to reports on the development, it is said that President Jonathan has a very limited time to change his campaign strategy, especially online, before it becomes too late.
Earlier on Tuesday, a screenshot of the poll was published and at that time it showed that Buhari well ahead of Jonathan and all other presidential candidate by over 75%.
As the day wore on, the poll saw Buhari’s lead rise to 79%. The poll was then swiftly taken down, and AIT replaced the page with a claim that the page was “under maintenance.”
AIT did not say whether the poll page would return after the so called ‘maintenance’, but some users had noted earlier that the Television Station was allowing multiple voting for President Jonathan.
