Peter Obi leads Tinubu, Atiku in latest Bloomberg poll ahead of presidential election


A pre-presidential election opinion poll has projected the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi, as the leading candidate ahead of the February 25 elections.
In the poll conducted by Premise Data Corp for Bloomberg News,  Peter Obi 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).
According to the poll result released on Friday,  Peter Obi scooped 66 percent of the 93 percent of respondents votes.
Tinubu and Atiku 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.
Peter Obi has won the majority of the polls but the opposition parties are quick to dismiss their outcome.
