Already, the presidential aspirants, in the last few weeks, have traversed the many regions of the country interacting with delegates of the PDP seeking for their votes.

As the primaries draw near, the major aspirants can be seen clearer.

This is as the eye of the storm sharpens. Popular opinion points to Bala Mohammed, Abubakar Atiku, Nyesom Wike, Bukola Saraki and Peter Obi as the aspirants with best opportunity to emerge victorious at the presidential primary.

A recent poll was conducted by a United Kingdom based polling non-governmental organization – Data Analytics UK – probing the possible outcome of the PDP primary of the five aspirants through scientific sampling of the delegates.

“Data Analytics had deployed a team of data aggregators and sampling experts to the six geopolitical zones and virtually all the states in Nigeria and the FCT since February 2022 to conduct progressive sampling of delegates preferences across the indicative thresholds and criteria.

Using standard modeling practices, Data Analytics UK evaluated each aspirant on six parameters to decipher Authenticity, Acceptability, Accessibility, Integrity, Amiability, Mental soundness.

Each delegate was polled discretely through a questionnaire that scored each aspirant on a scale of 0 to 100 percentage points on each of the six parameters.

In summative terms, the results from analysis, points favorably to Senator Bala Mohammed. The delegates saw Bala Mohammed as being the most authentic and easily accessible. Bala Mohammed scored an overall score of 75%, Abubakar Atiku scored 58.3%, Bukola Saraki scored 58.3%, Nyesom Wike scored 65% and Peter Obi scored 68.3%.

Atiku Bala Saraki Wike Obi
Authenticity 60% 80% 50% 70% 40%
Acceptability 70% 70% 60% 60% 70%
Accessibility 50% 80% 60% 60% 70%
Integrity 40% 70% 50% 70% 80%
Amiability 60% 70% 60% 70% 70%

Mental soundness 70% 80% 70% 60% 80%

Total Score: 58.3% 75% 58.3% 65% 68.3%

In terms of the geopolitical regions, the results indicate Bala Mohammed as highly favored cumulatively.

The North East region where Bala Mohammed hail from, the results show over 65% of the delegates will vote for Bala Mohammed.

According to the delegates, Bala Mohammed had been highly instrumental towards the upkeep of the PDP in manyof the North East states following the loss at the general elections of 2019. Senator Bala Mohammed sustained the PDP in Gombe, Borno and Yobe State, ensuring regular payment of salaries for the administrative staff and services costs.

This, he did silently with only the delegates being aware of the gesture.

In the North Central region, the analytical data shows similar trending from the delegates.

The same holds true. Bala Mohammed, according the polling data, is expected to sweep the votes of the north central delegates with 57% of the votes.

During the period while Bala Mohammed held sway as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory [FCT], the PDP of the north central states benefited from Bala Mohammed’s goodwill and welfare activities.

Bala Mohammed is reported to have assured the executive officers of the party within the North Central states were allocated lands within the FCT. He also shared operational vehicles to each state exco of the region.

In the southern regions, Bala Mohammed breaks even. Analysis show his favorability ratings to rest majorly on his liberal mindedness and candid nature.

His role in ensuring stability and safe transition from Yar’dua administration to Jonathan administration remain unlost in the minds of PDP of the southern regions.

It is expected judging by the resulting of the polling analysis for Bala Mohammed to riding to victory come next week’s exercise.

The Governor of Bauchi State, during the last few weeks had embarked on a comprehensive tour across the 36 States of the nation canvassing for support and spreading the gospel of Nigeria First agenda.
