The Nigerian Human Rights Community (NHRC) poll ranks Bola Tinubu as the favorite to win the presidency.

This was revealed in a survey report published on Thursday by the NHRC, an organization made up of 134 civil liberties and community-based organizations.

According to the research, “of of the 19365 respondents interviewed, 7940 (41%) are voting for the APC candidate, while 5035 (26%), 4067 (21%), and 1743 (9%) are voting for the PDP, LP, and NNPP candidates, respectively. Of the responders, 1162 (6%) are supporting the rival candidates.

It was reported that the contest would be between Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Bola Tinubu of the APC, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Yet according to the NHRC, Tinubu is the “most dominating and generally supported candidate, followed by Atiku Abubakar (PDP) and Peter Obi,” according to the poll (LP).

Yet, it is important to keep in mind that the “gray states” (Rivers, Kebbi, Bauchi, Plateau, and Katsina), which are too close to call and have a large number of apathetic incumbent governors, could tip the scales in favor of the presidential candidate who is able to mobilize their support.

The group said that it conducted the exercise in a professional and objective manner to obtain an accurate reflection of opinions. Including the FCT, respondents were chosen from each of the 36 states.
