Peter Obi, the Labour Party candidate, currently has a 41% lead in the polls, according to a new survey by Stears Nigeria.
Abubakar Atiku of the People’s Democratic Party and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are in tight second place with 31% and 20% of the vote, respectively.
However, when asked who they would most likely vote for, 36% of the respondents stayed mute.
The largest telephone-based electoral poll in Nigeria, according to Stears, has 6,220 respondents and was conducted throughout 36 States in Nigeria.
However, the model used by Stears also shows that Tinubu will win the election in the event of a low turnout of voters.
The former Lagos State governor will get 39% of the votes, while Obi and Atiku are to get 32% and 22% of the votes respectively.
The pollsters noted that “Stears prediction model believes that Tinubu has the most silent voters i.e. people who intend to vote for Tinubu but choose not to disclose this during an interview.”
