NOI/Anap polls predict victory for Sanwo-Olu, Siminalayi Fubara in Lagos, Rivers


A pre-election opinion poll commissioned by Anap Foundation,
a non-profit organisation, has predicted that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of
Lagos, will win the March 11 election.

The poll results showed that Sanwo-Olu was ahead among the
three leading candidates in the state.

The two other candidates are Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the
Labour Party (LP) and Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party

The results of the poll, which was conducted in February
before the presidential election, were released on Monday.

The poll results showed that 31 percent of the voters
surveyed said they would vote for Sanwo-Olu, while 8 percent preferred
Rhodes-Vivour and Adediran, also known as Jandor, got 7 percent.

“The results showed a significant lead for Governor Babajide
Sanwo-Olu with 31% of voters proposing to vote for him if the governorship
election were to be conducted today; 8% proposing to vote for Gbadebo
Rhodes-Vivour (LP) who

fell in second place and Azeez Olajide Adediran ‘Jandor’
(PDP) was third with 7% of voters proposing to vote for him,” the poll reads.

“Governor Sanwo-Olu’s 23%-point lead at this stage is
significant, as the opposition voters are fragmented and shared between 2 main
challengers in the ratio 31:8:7.”

Meanwhile, Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of LP won
in Lagos in the February 25 presidential election.

Lagos is the political stronghold of Bola Tinubu, the
president-elect which he has not lost to any party until the last election.

There are fears among the ruling All Progressives Congress
(APC) that the result of the presidential election is a signpost of what is to
come in the governorship election.


The NOI poll also predicted that Siminalayi Fubara, PDP
governorship candidate in Rivers, will win the March 11 election in the state.

The poll results show that Fubara is having a significant
lead with 20 percent of voters who preferred to vote for him during the

Magnus Abe of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), came second
with 12 percent, Tonye Cole of the APC scored 10 percent, and Dumo Owukori
Lulu-Briggs of the Accord Party had 6 percent.

Beatrice Itubo of LP scored two percent.

Tinubu, the President-elect, was the winner of the
presidential election in Rivers state.
