Top choice for next Nigerian president: Babatunde Fashola, Oluremi Sonaiya

Recently, we ran a 7-day poll to find out who Nigerians will endorse for Nigerian president in 2019 or 2013. The poll recorded 24 votes and Nigeria’s Minister of Power, Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola scored the highest vote.

Nigerian playwright and poet Wole Soyinka, Governor of Ekiti Ayodele Fayose and former professor of French Language and Applied Linguistics Oluremi Sonaiya were among the candidates in the poll.

Oluremi Sonaiya scored the second highest vote.

Although the number of votes recorded in the poll is too small to be relied on for accurate analysis and judgement, but it gives us a rough view of who Nigerians will likely endorse for president in the next row of elections without the unhealthy political influence usually exerted by political parties on nomination of election candidates.

Ayodele Fayose recorded the least endorsement in the poll. Given his controversial political dossier, this is no surprise. Even,if the total number of votes collected in the poll was larger than what we have, Fayose will most likely get the least endorsement.

Here is a shot of the poll results:
