Obi leads Tinubu, Atiku in new Bloomberg poll


A pre-presidential election opinion poll has projected Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) as the leading candidate ahead of the February 25 elections.

In the poll conducted by Premise Data Corp for Bloomberg NewsObi was the preferred choice of the respondents ahead of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The poll result released on Friday showed that the LP candidate garnered 66 percent of the 93 percent of respondents’ votes.

Tinubu and Abubakar got 18 and 10 percent respectively. The poll was conducted between January 26 and February 4.

 “San Francisco-based Premise polled 2,384 Nigerians from Jan. 26 to Feb. 4 via a smartphone app. Submissions were selected from quotas developed by age, gender, and location across the country’s six geopolitical zones, the company said. Results were then weighted against the original quotas to ensure national representation,” Bloomberg News said.

There have been a number of polls conducted for the leading presidential candidates.

The LP candidate has won the majority of the polls but the opposition parties are quick to dismiss their outcome.

In September 2022, an NOI poll placed Obi as the leading candidate with 21 percent of the votes.

Tinubu and Atiku tied in second place with 13 percent of votes each, while Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) came fourth with three percent.

The result of the poll was dismissed by APC, NNPP, and PDP.
