Just like its presidential poll prediction chart before the February 25th general elections, Ikorodu News Network (INN) also projected a gubernatorial online poll to ascertain possible outcomes of the Lagos State governorship elections.
With the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) extending the election date originally slated for March 11th, now to March 18th, the media agency used its already established polls to predict the voting margins.
Before going into the forecasts, it should be noted that as predicted, the All Progressive Congress Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the eventual winner of the National race, which our forecast predicted, we also foresaw the apparent spurt in the Labour Party’s polling.
Based on rumours that the gubernatorial elections will see a synergy between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP). We wish to foretell that our polls did not detect any form of alliance between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP), to strut the ruling party (APC) in the oncoming gubernatorial elections in Lagos State.
Our forecast simply observed voters strutting by their respective aspirants.
We also noticed that the forecast saw indecisive voters tilting in favour of the Labour Party due to a surge by its Presidential aspirant, Mr Peter Obi.
Note; though our poll was conducted online, it is not directly relaying the eventual outcome of the physical polling, it’s only designed to discern voters’ enthusiasm to participate in the electoral system come March 18th and the political party’s favouritism.
On the polls; Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) accrued 153% margins with an extra 14%, 13% & 13% support to maintain the top spot.
Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP) accrued 51% margins with an extra 12% support to emerge 2nd.
Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) attained 10% margins plus an extra 1% support to come to earn the 3rd spot.
*Extra margin* support was the reaction of voters, garnered post-February 25th polls.
