Ahead of the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and all the National Assembly Candidates of the APC in the State have been tipped to breast the tape ahead of other opposition parties according to the statement issued by the Convener of the Kwara Progressive Media Organization (KPMO), Usman Lade, in Ilorin, the Kwara State Capital.

In the newly released survey conducted by the Organization, the APC Presidential flagbearer would coast home to unassailable victory in all the 16 Local Government Areas of the State in the Saturday’s presidential election.

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is projected to record about 20% of the total votes while the Labour Party (LP) is tipped to get below 5% of the total votes, even though the meagre votes are expected to be come from Ilorin South and West Local Government Areas of the State”

The poll also gives Senator Sadiq Umar victory in all the 5 LGAs of Kwara North Senatorial District; with about (70%) performance with the leading opposition (PDP) also making a decent showing in Edu and Kaiama Local Governments respectively.

In the Kwara Central Senatorial District, the APC candidate, Mallam Saliu Mustapha is the clear favourite according to the survey (65%) with a tough challenge from the main opposition (PDP) expected only from Ilorin West LGA.

While Senator Lola Ashiru is projected to win the Kwara South Senatorial District with (55 per cent), the survey revealed PDP would most likely do (43%), with SDP also making a decent showing (32%).
