AN independent Europe-based pollsters, Zeus Polls has predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may likely win most states in the 2019 governorship elections.
According to reports, Zeus Polls correctly predicted Governor Willie Obiano’s and Dr Kayode Fayemi’s victories in the last governorship elections in Anambra and Ekiti states.
The latest Zeus Polls findings signed by Tanko Suleiman, Polls Chief Operating Officer, Berlin, Germany, was made available to newsmen in Lagos on Tuesday.
The polls posited that in spite of a seemingly voters’ antipathy to the APC in the upcoming 2019 general elections, the party was 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 Governor 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 Governor. Godwin Obaseki.
“In the PDP-held Rivers State, 65 per cent of voters polled do not want incumbent Gov. Nyesom Wike back in 2019, as over 47 per cent of polled voters said they will vote Tonye Princewill, 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 the incumbent 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 that its findings on who may likely emerge as president were still uncertain but added that going forward, it would release monthly updates, on the continuous exhaustive polling on the 2019 Elections.
