Atiku floors Buhari in Prominent Pro-Buhari Influencer’s Poll

Buhari and Atiku

Former Vice President and leading presidential hopeful of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar has trounced President Muhammadu Buhari in an online poll conducted by a pro-Buhari influencer.

In the first online poll conducted since the Buhari administration marked its third anniversary on May 29, Atiku polled 43% as against Buhari’s 35%. Blogger and online newspaper publisher, Omoyele Sowore and former deputy governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Kingsley Moghalu polled 7% and 15% respectively.

In the Twitter poll conducted within 24 hours of President Buhari’s celebration of his third year anniversary by Mark Essien, prominent pro-Buhari influencer via @markessien handle, respondents were asked a straightforward question: “Who would you vote for in 2019 Presidential Election?”

An overwhelming majority of the 9,067 respondents voted for Atiku, giving him an 8% edge over President Buhari as at the close of voting Wednesday morning.

The result of the poll reflects the latest NOI/Gallup showing Buhari’s support has dropped phenomenally and his scorecard in critical sectors of economy (16%), job creation (15%) and poverty alleviation (12%) was adjudged abysmal.
