A firm based in the United States that was hired during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan ahead of the 2015 Presidential Election, Williams and Associates, but predicted that Muhammadu Buhari will come out victorious in 2015, has predicted victory for Atiku Abubakar in the forthcoming presidential polls.

The company while giving its analysis of the Nigerian Presidential Election made it knwn that Atiku will win with less than a majority of the votes cast with 45 per cent. Muhammadu Buhari will have 33 percent of the total votes casted. Kingsley Moghalu and Omoyele Sowore will bag 9 percent and 8 percent of the total votes respectively.

Atiku to win with 45%

Buhari 33%

Moughalu 9%

Sowore 8%

 

This company in question which was contracted by the administration of Goodluck Jonathan at that time predicted victory for Buhari with 54 per cent to 46 per cent for Jonathan. Buhari later won by 54 to 45 per cent of the total votes cast.

The analysis was made with data gotten all over Nigeria by operatives of Williams and Associates through interviews, face to face conversations etc. were interviewed on their preferences in English and local dialects as appropriate.

The poll also showed that 76 percent of the Nigerians population in the South-East believes that things are going in the wrong direction. 12 percent of the remaining population believed that things were going in the right direction.

South-South followed next with 75 percent, then the North-East with 65 percent, 57 percent from the North-West, and 48 percent from the South-West. Amazingly, the troubled North-Central with 46 per cent had the least proportion of those who believe that things were not okay.

Two weeks before the election, a total of 64 percent believes that President Muhammadu Buhari hasn’t got what it takes to be re-elected into power, which in the same time back in 2015 that believed that Dr. Jonathan had not done enough to deserve re-election.

While responding to these analysis, the spokesman of the Buhari campaign, Festus Keyamo stated that, “This is one of the numerous predictions that has been made by different polls. It is surely an insult to award President Buhari 33 per cent of the votes.
