Ekiti Gov Pre-Election Poll: Eleka In Strong Lead Over Fayemi

Ahead of the July 14th 2018 governorship election in Ekiti State, a new public opinion poll by NOIPolls has again tipped Professor Kolapo Olusola (Eleka), candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP) to win the governorship race over Dr. John Kayode Fayemi (JKF), candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This 2nd poll conducted in the first four days of the election week (9th – 12th July, 2018) reveals that Professor Olusola now leads Dr. Fayemi by a significant 25 percentage point; up from 8 percentage point lead revealed in the 1st pre-election poll conducted between 18th and 23rd June, 2018.

For the poll, 1,000 randomly selected telephone-owning adult respondents were interviewed across Ekiti state via telephone: Professor Olusola, fondly known as Eleka polled 57 per cent; Dr. Fayemi (JKF) polled 32 per cent; and Otunba Segun Adewale of ADP, fondly called Oshaprapra (2 per cent).

Interestingly, the poll also revealed that while 98 per cent of respondents claimed to have their PVCs, 91 percent were absolutely certain they would come out and vote for the governorship candidate of their choice on 14th July 2018.
