Majority approves Jonathan's performance in July

05 August 2014, 21:39

Abuja - Latest governance poll results suggest more than 60 percent of adult locals approved the performance of President Goodluck Jonathan over the past month.  

Research think-tank, NOIPolls, conducted the poll which established 62 percent of the adult population gave the approval.

This rating portrays a five-points increase from June 2014 and represents the highest rating in the 19 month period that NOIPolls started monthly governance polls in January 2013.

The increase in the president’s rating is largely due to the highly positive ratings recorded in the South-East and South-South zones with 80 percent each.

More findings revealed that the President received an average ranking for his performance on Economy, Education, Health, Agriculture & Food Security, Transportation and Foreign Policy & Diplomacy, while he was ranked very poor for his performance on Job Creation, Power and Security.

These results represent the seventh in the 2014 monthly series of governance polls conducted by NOIPolls to gauge the opinions and perceptions of Nigerians regarding the approval rating of the President, the performance of the President on key elements of his transformation agenda, and the state of power supply in the country.

Assessing the President’s performance by geo-political zones discloses that at least half of the respondents across all geo-political zones approved of the President’s performance in July 2014.

The South-East and the South-South zones accounted for the largest fraction of respondents who approve of the President’s job performance (80 percent each).

The North-West zone and the South-West zone have the highest number of respondents who were neutral with 15 percent each.
Also, the North-West has the largest proportion of respondents who disapprove of the President’s job performance with 35 percent, according to NOIPolls.
