I was motivated to write and ask this question "Will Peter Obi contest for the 2019 Presidential Election" when I visited one of the Nigerian news site called post-nigeria.com which set up a poll asking Nigerians who they want as the Nigerian president in 2019 in which they listed 5 names for their visitors to vote for and the names on the list are,
1. Atiku Abubakar
2. Yemi Osinbajo
3. Muhammadu Buhari
4. Bola Tinubu
5. Peter Obi
The poll caught my eyes and I was interested to know who Nigerians might wish to have as their president in 2019 but guess what Yemi Osinbajo took the first position while Peter Obi of Anambra state is still battling with him in the second position while others follow.
First, I was surprised to see Peter Obi on the list to more of appearing in the second position of the poll results and that is what prompted me to ask this question Will Peter Obi contest for the 2019 Presidential Election.
If you look at the image above you will see the results of the poll titled "who do you want as Nigerian's 2019 President" from post-nigeria.com
The opinion poll might not have any meaning regarding who will win the 2019 presidential election because Nigerian has millions and billions of registered voters while its only 74,000 thousand plus that participated in post-nigeria.com poll but one thing that I will not write off is the fact that Peter Obi is highly respected and valued in Nigeria according to few that have participated in the opinion poll.
The big question remains will Peter Obi contest for the 2019 Presidential Election because after Goodluck regime he has been so quiet and I don't recall him showing any interest in contesting for the presidency in 2019 but if he suddenly shows up then he will surely get some support irrespective of who wins according to the opinion poll.
Let us know what you think about the results
