|Buhari Opinion Poll 2018 - Overwhelming Majority Voted Against Buhari by Aeroberry: 8:49am On May 16|
The Aeroberry.com Opinion Poll conducted on Twitter by Ezenwa Emmanuel has just come to an end. In the Poll, people were asked, "Are you happy with Buhari's government so far ? At the end of the Poll, the overwhelming majority of the people who voted, showed that they were not happy with the government.
As indicated in the Twitter post below, the total number of persons who officially voted in the Buhari Poll were 38, 289. In summary, 74% voted that they were not happy with his government, whereas 18% voted that they were happy with what he is doing. On the other hand, 8% of the persons who voted said they were not sure if they were happy or not.
Majority of those who took part in the poll were Nigerians who may vote in the 2019 elections. This is indicated in the target audience pictured below. Moreover, I personally made sure that those who participated in the poll came from different parts of Nigeria - North, South, East, West. This I believe will give me a balance and fair idea of what Nigerians think about the government of President Buhari.
Reactions of people who voted
Some people who participated in the poll gave their reasons for voting the way they did. One of them with the Twitter ID @AOgosi wrote, "U should ve added "God forbid" to this poll. Cause "No" is too small." Another participant @paulinusmyles27 said, "Am 100% not happy, pmb is a total failure. Wake me up from sleep and I will tell you the same thing." And some other person with the name Abdulkhardir Yusuf and Twitter ID @Ex_khaleed wrote, "We need to change the bagger ." Abubakar Ismael @ABUBAKA71643118 wrote, "I'm not happy with buhari administration".
For your information, I am mentioning the names and Twitter ID of these people because they made their comments openly, which means they are not afraid to show that they voted the way they did. Many others voted, but did not comment so, I will not mention them here but respect their privacy.
There were those who voted in support of Buhari but were not happy with what they saw. Maybe they did not expect that the result would be the way it is. As such, for whatever reasons, after voting, they condemned the Poll to be fraudulent, meaningless, not capable of changing anything during the real elections, would not remove anything from the popularity of Buhari, rather would make Buhari even more popular.
Some of those who voted, supporting Buhari are Raslan with Twitter ID @Bellokabir12 who twitted, "Am much satisfied wit his government n he will have mah vote 2019". Same with MAliyu with Twitter ID @Yar_Aliyu who said, "Very happy with his performance". Okulaja Adewunmi W @Adaptorokulaja wrote "I'm not Buhari Family member, I voted YES, this govt is the best that Nigeria have had since Democracy began, are U guys expecting us to support the people that stole all our boom before 2015? Check this analysis and tell me a govt that would have succeeded".
In addition, some of those who were not happy with the Poll and even accused me of being biased gave their reasons. For instance, MML @tunoguns twitted, "We no say you be PDP member." He accused me of being a PDP member whereas I am not a politician but an ordinary Nigerian looking for a better Nigeria. Ahmad Garba was suspicious of the Poll, he wrote, "This poll is scam, I'm pretty sure most of Nigeria's are happy wt the present govt. Unless if u are corruption minded person or carried away by bigotry."
Most of the comments there were very interesting and worth reading. It tells you the state of mind of Nigerians regarding Buhari's government. And for those who support him, it tells you how they feel strongly about him and would not want to see him loose the 2019 elections.
On the flip side, there were people who voted no but might still vote for Buhari during the 2019 elections. For instance, Shina Bam @shynestbam tweeted, "I entered No but I may still vote Buhari depending on who is up against him ?" This therefore reveals something about this Poll. Maybe not all who voted "no" may vote against Buhari during the 2019 elections unless a more credible candidate from other parties is given. Therefore, this should be something, PDP and other opposition parties should reflect upon.
There were people who were impressed that Nigerians were happy to express their feelings regarding the government. However, they were concerned that many of them may not have their PVCs. Consequently, they encouraged people to go get their PVCs for it is what will help them to effect any change or keep the president there if they wish to. For example, @josycastoll tweeted, "I am glad you are encouraging people to get their PVC. I also lend my voice to the call. Please if you are seeing this and you are yet to get your PVC or yet to register for voting, kindly make the move to do so today. That said, majority here aren't interested in the elections."
Finally, there were people who thought the Opinion Poll meant nothing. For them, it won't actually reflect the true nature of things in the country and it won't affect Buhari in the next election. To such people, I will refer them to Opinion Polls that were conducted when Buhari and Jonathan were campaigning for the presidential elections. Majority of the Polls then showed that Buhari would win the elections and he did. Such people may like to read this article by Naija.com which summarised most of the Polls at the time : Click => Buhari defeats Jonathan in 10 polls conducted so far.

Many Nigerians too have smartphones and have access to the internet. So they should not be ignored. Buhari needs the west, the south and the east to win. Without them is will fail.

Aeroberry:the 2019 election will really be a close one,the only region that is sure for buhari in the south,is the south west and it's gonna even be a close margin,but it all depend on who the PDP also present.
Buhari will surely lose taraba,plateau and Benue, the rest of the 3 states in the middle belt will be a battle ground sha though buhari might win the rest,but it's not gonna be with a wide margin.
The APC will surely rig and use under age voters in the north west cause without that,they might not win o

We have seen this many times.
PMB will not only win the 2019 election, he will win BIG.
|Re: Buhari Opinion Poll 2018 - Overwhelming Majority Voted Against Buhari by zik4ever: 9:34am On May 16|
Who is the other candidate? As it is, forget all the arm chair analysis, the painful truth is PMB will win again, though with fewer votes except a miracle or something extraordinary happens -NOT impossible but difficult. He has lost significant ground among Northern Christians but he will sweep his traditional North West and North East (some decline in Adamawa, significant decline in Taraba). He will struggle in North Central (e.g. can't get the 25% in a place like Benue which he even won in 2015). He will lose the traditional South South and South East. As in 2015, the South West will decide and honestly, I don't see what PDP or any other party will offer the South West. Perceived mismanagement of the South West contributed significantly to PDP losing 2015 and same may replay. Note that I am NOT from the South West! Buhari has lost goodwill and grounds but who has gained goodwill or ground -PDP, Atiku, Coalition for new Nigeria? Before you come for me, note that I am NOT a member of BMC or his supporter. Fact is, many commentators have no PVC and expressing anger on internet won't change election outcomes. In the 'far North' people will trek for miles, queue up patiently under the sun and in the rain to vote but my neighbor who doesn't want Buhari and always criticizing him, will tell me that her polling booth is too far for her to go and vote. That's what she said in 2015. Abeg!

Jaguntemmy:Are buhari supporters stones who cannot feel hence cannot feel the impact of his poor governance and thus remain a loyal supporter even when their lives have been ruined?

There are currently 93 million active smart phones in Nigeria meaning the number of people with smart phones are more than those without .... so what's your point ?
|Re: Buhari Opinion Poll 2018 - Overwhelming Majority Voted Against Buhari by Xander85: 10:16am On May 16|
Nigeria is in deep shi't!
I can understand this sentiment of 'Buhari will win' if it had been pre-2015 elections we're talking about. But now, given the benefit of hindsight....now knowing what we know about the man and his party....given the depths of despair Nigeria has descended to, i can't believe we're here saying there's a high possibility of this same man and his devilish party winning again come 2019! It beggars belief! In saner climes, we wouldn't even be here discussing this as, Buhari would have been safely locked away doing porridge in prison!
Buhari and his party are banking on the hordes of zombie almajiris up north and also rigging to win. Let's be honest with ourselves.
This is why i've given up on this country. I want my people out of this hell hole....there's just no light at the end of the tunnel!

In 2019 Buhari will make history as the most humiliated President since the beginning of democracy.
Even rigging won't save him.
|Re: Buhari Opinion Poll 2018 - Overwhelming Majority Voted Against Buhari by ANIOMADEI2018: 1:07pm On May 16|
As 2019 approaches, those who brought Nigeria to its knees, vandalized and wrecked it and left it for dead before 2015 are busy trying to weave a comeback mantra that will help them access power once again in 2015 after a disastrous 16 years trauma that left Nigeria for dead.
They are being joined in this vain mission by those who thought the coming of Buhari would shift the looting tent to their side and as it never happened, they became bitter, inconsolable enemies of the regime. Also in the train are the confused ideologues who have good intentions initially but are so disoriented as to be captured by the pedestrian feel-good stories of a utopia which Buhari would have wrought even with the fact that he inherited the most austere economic realities.
They have massed together to lead an erroneous chorus that Nigerians should vote out Buhari in 2019. Sho? Some of us who have been assaulted by this perverse gospel have asked why we should vote out Buhari but we have gotten no convincing answer than a rehearse of a more perverse narration of how Buhari has turned Nigeria to a land of hunger and misery and how killings have been happening under Buhari? Is that so? When you prod further, what you get is a string of poorly articulated narration of how life was a seamless bread and butter affair in Nigeria before Buhari came. If you try to run some comparisons to prove this story, they tell you to forget the past and face the future.
Truth is that those who weave sordid stories to make Buhari look bad are so afraid to confront the past, which itself introduces a huge paradox to their badly-arranged stories. Can you face the present and the future without excursing into the past? To them, life should start from May 29, 2015 when Buhari took over from the scandalous regime they ran. That itself, is a cut-and-paste effort to manipulate. It is as fraudulent as the claim of these same people that they have repented (and you ask, repent from what?) and their more notorious request to be allowed back to power. They are so pathologically hunted by the past they created that they make every effort to shout down any person that refers them to the hell they presided over here for a whole 16 years. They want Nigerians to abridge their memories and senses and join them in voting out Buhari based on their micro-managed but hardly agreeing narratives, which sees Buhari as having failed. Some of them are even telling Nigerians that Buhari has proven not to be the solution to our problem.
Since we have an Eldorado they claimed they did here in 16 years, which other problems are they talking about? Which problems are they claiming they will offer solutions to when they brought down heaven on earth to Nigeria n their 16 messy years in power? PDP claimed they did beyond expectation so why are they apologizing and telling Nigerians of their readiness to be born-again rulers if given back power?
But then, the question remains; why should I and other Nigerians vote out Buhari and bring back the locusts? Should I vote Buhari out because he is meticulously rebuilding an economy that was eaten down and ran in red during a providential oil boom? Do I vote out Buhari because he is frantically building up our foreign reserve that was so badly vandalized when oil, our solo export product, went at over $120 a barrel and the country was exporting over 2.5million ever day? Do I vote out Buhari in 2019 because he is achieving this unbelievable feat at a period the oil price crashed to between $27 to $50 a barrel and our daily sale volume was cut to as low as below 700,000 barrels a day because those that lost their power to loot saw oil facilities as one of the sectors they must avenge their electoral defeat on? Do I vote out Buhari because at this very arid economic turn, he is making the highest investment in capital projects?
Do I vote out Buhari in 2019 because he has channeled all the money that would have used to service the gluttony and bacchanal greed of party men, cronies, hirelings, friends, subalterns, bed mates and party members of the party in power and its government to critical capital projects that will drive the Nigerian economy? Should I vote out Buhari because he adamantly refused to bow to the pressure to sustain the corruption omnibus and ensure Nigerians live straight and narrowly without stealing from the treasury? Do I vote out Buhari because he has taken up the nation’s decayed infrastructures and is fixing them in a way no other government has done in the past?
Do I vote out Buhari because he decided to implement strict monetary policies to save Nigeria’s resources from yam eaters, rodents and plunderers who are anchoring the noisome battle for his replacement? Do I vote out Buhari because the treasury raiders who looted a richly endowed country dry before he came feel that he should satisfy their senses of entitlement and continue abandoning the infrastructure that should drive our growth as a nation? Do I vote out Buhari because he has stopped evil servants from operating millions of phantom accounts through which they bleed the treasury while we collectively suffer? Do I vote out Buhari because the economy is no more about looting, plundering, sharing and stealing?
Should I vote out Buhari because he has insisted that he will neither chop nor allow pests to feast on our commonwealth? Should I vote out Buhari because he insists that Nigerian wealth must serve us all instead of a ravenous few? Do I vote out Buhari because in a period of austerity, he saved states that went bankrupt when we were having oil boom and had made them solvent through prudent and honest management of our economy? Do I vote out Buhari in 2019 because he insists that Nigerians should work for what they earn? Should I vote out Buhari because he is fixing federal roads, the power sector, the energy sector in a way no government has done in the history of the country?
Do I vote out Buhari because he is no longer feeding corrupt-former leaders who not only looted Nigeria to the bones but insist on being serviced by what remains of the treasury? Do I vote out Buhari in 2019 because he is no longer pandering to the indecent corrupt interests of the legislature whose members are being ran ragged by frustration that they are no longer enjoying the bazaar as they used to do? Should I vote out Buhari because he is no longer deploying sacks of billions of Naira to bribe the legislature on sundry issues? Should I vote out Buhari because some of his party men who expected being spoon-fed from the national purse are disappointed he is not doing so? Do I vote out Buhari because those that stole the country to the bones and who thought they had escaped with their loot are being called by to return what they stole?
Do I vote out Buhari because the professional scavengers that flood around the seat of power with the hope of free-loading from our commonwealth have been made extinct? Do I vote out Buhari because he stopped the murderous escapades of Boko Haram that killed in tens of thousands, that took a huge size of Nigerian landmass and subjected the entire country to unrestrained attacks and untamed danger? So do I vote out Buhari because he is building the Second Niger Bridge for which past regimes duped my Igbo people? Do I vote out Buhari because he is building the enormous Mambilla Power Station which past governments played around with for decades without as much as turning the foundation soil on the project site?
Should I vote out Buhari because he is building massive railways across Nigeria? Should I vote out Buhari because he is meticulously building a viable economy from the rubble of the chaos he met on ground? Should I vote out Buhari because the vampires that wrecked the public treasury are angry and baying bare blood because, for the first time in the country’s history, they have lost access to the treasury? Do I vote out Buhari because the vampires that sucked life out of us especially in the fatal 16 years’ period before 2015 are wailing their eyes out and feigning hunger as an elaborate dubious project to take another injurious bite on us?
Do I vote out Buhari because he paid off trillions of Naira past governments owed contractors for contracts they used to enrich their members? Do I vote out Buhari because he paid off over N600 billion subsidy the past regime owed fuel importers and saved the energy industry from collapse? Do I vote out Buhari because he has rebuilt what remained of the four refineries that previous governments abandoned as scraps? Do I vote out Buhari because he stopped the payment of fraudulent subsidy to phantom fuel importers as was the culture before he came? Do I vote out Buhari because sundry, corrupt interests are no longer being awarded fake contracts where they walk away with the contract monies without even visiting the project sites? Do I vote out Buhari because he paid off trillions of Naira owed pensioners in federal government ministries, parastatals and agencies during our unfortunate oil boom? Do I vote out Buhari for the trillions spent on the most ambitious social intervention scheme to rescue the most vulnerable in our society, which is the most elaborate any government has ever embarked in Nigeria?
Why should I vote out Buhari? Do I vote out Buhari because he has stopped the drainpipe of freaky importation of freebies that served as feeding bottle for corrupt politicians before he came? Do I vote out Buhari because he stopped the importation of foodstuffs and through this bold action, has made Nigeria a sustainable agricultural country where citizens feed themselves? Do I vote out Buhari because of the agricultural revolution he is doing in Nigeria, which has seen the country unravel as sustainable food producer from its recent past as a top food importer? Should I vote out Buhari because he has made politics a non-rewarding venture unlike in the past? Do I vote out Buhari because he had securely locked up our treasure box and restrained access to it to even his appointees and supporters? Do I vote out Buhari because he is strongly ranged against the gargantuan corruption complex from which most Nigerians eke out a living?
These are just few posers I want those that have launched a project to get Nigerians to turn against Buhari. I don’t know of any incoming leader but I make bold to say that President Buhari has done far more than any other President that ruled Nigeria. I am open to correction by any person that feels otherwise and this would be done through telling us any president that has done better by listing what such president did. So are these reasons why I should vote out Buhari? Make no mistake about it, the project to stop Buhari flows from no patriotic reasons but squarely on the reality that Buhari has capped official stealing and plundering. It is for the singular reason that Buhari has plugged our treasury from these leeches that he is making huge investment in growth-driving capital ventures even when we are going through difficult economic realities because the oil we have, over time, depended lazily on, has met turbulent times.
So, on what ground will I and millions of Nigerians that endured very desperate pressures in 2015 to vote out the moths and rodents, not vote in Buhari in 2019 to continue the good works he is doing? Is it because the looters and their accomplices that neigh the country’s treasury have weaved enough incoherent and contradictory lies against Buhari that I will dive into a fatal voyage in 2019? Is it because those that ate down our country are breathing enough vain fury? Is it that we are simple-indeed enough to be taken advantage of by desperadoes that want power for its corrupt ends? Is it that those who raped and pauperized us before 2015 are right in their feeling that we are a simple-minded and memory-challenged people as to fall for any silly prank Never! I see no reason why we should not vote more emphatically for Buhari in 2019; not based on who he is but on what he had done with the mandate we gave him in March 2015 and based on the fact that he is the most assured hand to deepen the recovery of Nigeria and the setting of a credible template for the growth of Nigeria.

Despite all the hard work Obasanjo and his team put in clearing most of our depts, improving foreign reserves, revamping the banking sector, creating a vibrant middle class and ensuring stability and security, people still vilify him.
Now with hunger in the land and continuous bloodletting in the north, apart from a marginal increase in the foreign reserves please tell me what are the other novel achievements of this government? Yet to some people, Buhari is the best thing to happen to Nigeria since the invention of Garri.
