Peter Obi And All Those Onitsha Market Polls- By Frederick Nwabufo by tinsel: 10:27pm On Feb 07, 2023
The Nextier Poll is not worth a breath of concern, really. It is sufficiently flawed in conception, and design. The preconceived agenda is obvious. Political propaganda through questionable polls. The poll is not different from the quotidian tallying of goods by Onitsha-market traders.

Propaganda, lies, and chicanery have always been instruments of war. In World War II, Germany actuated and deployed the most pervasive, yet incisive propaganda ever witnessed in history. For the Germans, the idea was to psychologically overwhelm their adversaries, and consequently, secure victory on terra firma. The most pernicious warfare is that of the mind.

Politics, ordinarily, should not be warfare. But in a system of constant collision of interests like ours; it is sadly so. The weapons of political warfare are both corporeal and subliminal. The battle is fought in the minds of the electorate long before Election Day.

The recent Nextier poll, which arrogates dubious electoral advantage to Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, is an asymptote of political sorcery. The poll is essentially a subterfuge, a ruse, a gambit, an artifice; it is a serpentine machination through and through.

The Nextier 2023 presidential election survey, like the ANAP Poll before it, is a deliberate fabrication in the pursuit of political gain. The poll seeks to achieve predetermined objectives: (1) to endorse Peter Obi as the people’s candidate; (2) to exaggerate Peter Obi’s electoral value; (3) to create a siege of choice and chaos should the outcome of presidential election reflect a different candidate; and (4) to prejudice the election with an impossible fait accompli.

Nextier said it used “144 enumerators to poll 3,000 respondents in all states in Nigeria” to determine its projections. This is clearly defective and not extensive – as it leaves more room for error than stated by the pollster.


According to Nextier’s projections, survey respondents in all the South-East states; in four out of six states in the South-West; in six states in the South-South, and in two states in the North-Central preferred Peter Obi as president of Nigeria. The poll also projected impressive performance for Peter Obi in the North-West and the North-East. This is ludicrous. The survey obviously discounted voting behaviour across the states, demographics, as well as sociological and ethnological influences among the electorate across the zones.

The Nextier Poll is not worth a breath of concern, really. It is sufficiently flawed in conception, and design. The preconceived agenda is obvious. Political propaganda through questionable polls. The poll is not different from the quotidian tallying of goods by Onitsha-market traders.
There have been open threats of violence by supporters of Peter Obi if he loses the election. These polls, which mock reality, objectivity and common sense could be ammunition for what is to come if the election does not go in the way of the “Obidients.”

There should be a ceiling for propaganda. When electoral impossibilities are sold as definite outcomes by established pollsters, the risk is ominous. There is nothing dissuading the thought that “Obidients”, known to be choleric and unthinking in their delusion of certain victory will not unleash themselves on the nation.

There are concerns that the country may experience another insurrection in the gravity of the #EndSARS violence over the outcome of the presidential election. It is dangerous giving hope where there is obviously no chance; it is foolhardy creating a dream that is unrealisable. It is unwise holding unto an illusion, believing it and living it. The only way out of this phantasm is the asylum.

As I wrote in a previous column, Peter Obi did not plan to run for president. If he did plan to run for president, he would not be freewheeling through endless tunnels of gaffes and inchoate ideas. But really, he did not plan to run for president. An accident happened.

I'm just happy that February is here already. All these little children with their arrogant behaviour will be humbled. Imagine the future of the generations of weak social media addict who cannot think for themselves but gullibly follow media mob. They only look for what's trending on media and just follow like a sheep because they are afraid to go against social media mob. Weaklings are too many in this generation. They only know how to insult.

No single poster of Obi here in Azare. No agent .

The Nnewi and Awka, Onitsha , I visited in Dec 2022, the number of Obi posters , I saw are not up to 21.

Nnewi , that I visited in Dec, nobody is taking about Obi. They know, Obi is a fraud when he governed them for 8 yrs

Do not be deceived, Obi is not in the race. He clearly knows that

Chai! Sorely pained soul who have sold his existence for a morsel of bread. Frederick Nwabufo should know that Onitsha Main Market is one of the most powerful association you can ever find anywhere.

Like the efulefu Joe Igbokwe, Frederick have long sold himself out as a anywhere belly face brown envelop critic. No sane person even need a gallup opinion poll anywhere to know that Peter Obi is a collosus except you are mentally deranged.
