Online Polls are sponsored, majority of my supporters not online- Kwankwaso

The presidential candidate of the New Nigerian People’s Party(NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso has played down the importance of online polls.

Kwankwaso is of the opinion that such polls do not reflect what will happen on election day as many of the participants are only Twitter users.

Kwankwaso who usually comes fourth in these online polls, said majority of his supporters are not online.

“These things [polls] are on the telephone. Over 90 percent of my supporters don’t even know Twitter. They don’t even know social media,” he said Thursday when he was featured on Channels Television’s election programme The 2023 Verdict.


“If you want to meet them, go to Wuse Market, go to the markets in Kano; go to the market in Sabo, Ibadan, go to markets in Rivers and the roads and so on, and ask people.”

According to the former Kano State Governor, the sample size for these polls is insufficient and does not reflect the wishes of the people. He claimed that some of those polled are not in Nigeria and cannot vote during the election.

But the polls, according to Kwankwaso, who believes Obi only stands a chance at the Presidency if he aligns with his party the NNPP, have a few goals one of which is to get donations.

“These [polls] are being sponsored mainly to get donations and give an impression that some of us are not in the race,” he said on a Channels Television programme.
