An independent Europe-based pollsters Zeus Polls, has predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may likely win most states in the 2019 gubernatorial elections.
The Zeus Polls predicted Anamnra State Governor Willie Obiano and Ekiti State Governor-elect Dr Kayode Fayemi’s victories.
The latest Zeus Polls findings signed by Polls Chief Operating Officer in Berlin, Germany, Tanko Suleiman, , was made available to reporters in Lagos yesterday.
The polls posited that in spite of a seemingly voters’ antipathy to the APC in the upcoming 2019 general elections, the party is favoured to win the 2019 governorship elections in key states.
It noted that 51 per cent of voters polled in Kaduna State expressed a desire to return incumbent Gov. Nasir el-Rufai come 2019.
“65 per cent of voters polled in Lagos State want incumbent Governor Ambode returned in 2019 while 58 per cent of voters polled in Edo State say they will return incumbent Gov. Godwin Obaseki.
“In the PDP-held Rivers State, 65 per cent of voters polled do not want incumbent Governor Nyesom Wike back in 2019, as over 47 per cent of polled voters said they will vote, a riverine aspirant of the APC if he picks the party’s ticket.
“In Kano State, only 43 per cent of voters polled are in favour of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje returning in 2019, as 60 per cent say they will vote for any candidate supported by former Governor Kwankwanso’s Kwankwasiyya Movement,” it stated.
The organisation however, said its findings on who may likely emerge as president was still uncertain but added that it would release monthly updates, on the continuous exhaustive polling on the 2019 Elections.
