Kwara 2023: How the poll was conducted
Ahead of the forthcoming 2023 governorship elections, Anap Foundation commissioned a Statewide opinion poll which was conducted by NOIPolls Limited in October 2022.
The results showed a significant lead for Governor AbdulRahman with 30% of voters proposing to vote for him "if the governorship election were to be conducted today; and 11% proposing to vote for Alhaji Shuaibu Yaman Abdullahi (PDP) who fell in second place. Mr. Hakeem Oladimeji Lawal (SDP) was a distant third with only 3% of voters proposing to vote for him."
In a statement released on Tuesday, November 8, Anap foundation noted that Governor AbdulRahman’s 19%-point lead at this early stage is very significant and separates him from a leading pack of candidates scoring 30%, 11% and 3%.
"Undecided voters and those who prefer not to reveal their preferred candidate add up to a whopping 31% and 19% respectively.
"The gender split of undecided voters shows that 36% of women are undecided versus 26% of male voters," the statement added.
