New Anap Poll: Obi Leads Tinubu, Atiku, and Kwankwaso

According to a fresh poll released in December, the Labour Party’s (LP) 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, is now in the lead over the other three front-runners for the second time in the past four months.

Obi leads Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), according to the poll conducted by NOI Polls Limited and commissioned by Anap Foundation.

Atedo Peterside, president of the Anap Foundation, announced this live on Channels Television’s Politics Today program on Wednesday.

He said the election has moved from a “three-horse race,” as said in an earlier poll released in September, to a “four-horse race.”

Peterside said Obi has 23 percent, Tinubu scored 13, Atiku got 10, and Kwankwaso polled 2 percent in the fresh poll released in December.

“Nobody has gained or lost more than 2 or 3 percent. I don’t know whether that is good news or bad news, but it is as if nothing has happened fundamentally, no significant shift,” he said.

He said mobile phones were the instruments used to conduct the poll because of increased mobile phone penetration in the country, adding that a large percentage of people are undecided.

Peterside also said the interest level in the next general elections is driven by economic challenges plaguing the nation, such as poverty and insecurity, among others.

He noted that the appetite of the youths in this election is high, and they have carpeted candidates who have dodged presidential debates.
