Nigerians' Choice for Presidency, 2011

Covenant University Opinion Poll Unit (CUOPU) is a branch of Covenant University Centre for Research and Development (CUCERD) with a sole responsibility of carrying out both physical and electronic unbiased research opinion survey of Nigerians (at States and National levels) on issues of National and International interests. The unit headed by a Professor of Communication consists of researchers from various relevant disciplines of the University like: Demography, Political Science, Sociology, System and Information Science, Computer and Information Science, Mass Communication, Mechanical Engineering and Physics. The constitution of the team ensures efficient data gathering and processing towards a credible and fair 2011 election in Nigeria. The unit carried out the first physical opinion poll survey on the preference of Nigerians for the post of presidency in the forth coming general election in October 2010. The results were published in a number of Nigerian journals.

Here we publish the electronic opinion poll result (data and chart) of December 2010 - January 2011 just before the primaries. There will be, subsequently, a monthly survey till election. This opinion poll survey done in all the 36 states of Nigeria and Federal capital Territory (FCT) Abuja is fully sponsored by Covenant University as a worthy contribution towards free and credible election in Nigeria. Detailed data and information of the survey are kept in our archive.

It is our believe that this exercise done without any bias under an ecclesiastical sense of duty and honesty shall be a reliable indicator of the choice of Nigerians for the Presidency and Governorship positions in the forth coming election.

We seize this opportunity to appreciate all the media houses joining us and other just and fair minded Nigerians in the free publication of this findings.

The interpretation of the result is left for the readers.
