Winner emerges as Anap Foundation conducts second poll ahead of 2023 elections
Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate, has won in a new poll conducted by NOI Polls Limited and commissioned by Anap Foundation in December before the 2023 general election.
The poll, which is the second conducted in four months, showed that 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).
The president of the Anap Foundation, Atedo Peterside, disclosed this on Wednesday, December 21.
2023 presidential election no longer a three-horse race, says Peterside
Peterside said the election has moved past a three-horse race, as stated in an earlier poll released in September, to a four-horse race.
He said Obi led with 23% while Tinubu scored 13%. Atiku got 10% while Kwankwaso polled two per cent in the fresh poll released in December.
“Nobody has gained or lost more than 2, 3 per cent. 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.
