Poll gives Jonathan thumbs up for November

02 December 2014, 15:35

Lagos - Latest governance polls suggest the majority of adult Nigerians approved President Goodluck’s performance over the past one month.

According to NOIPolls, 60 percent gave a positive approval consistent with the 60 percent job approval rating recorded in October 2014.

On the contrary 27 percent disapproved of the President’s performance while 13 percent neither approved nor disapproved of his performance as they remained neutral.

The results represent the eleventh 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.

The evaluation of the President’s performance on key elements of his transformation agenda revealed that he achieved a very good rating (4) in Health for the first time since January 2014. According to result findings, the President performed averagely (3) in Job Creation, Economy, Education, Agriculture & Food Security, Transportation and Foreign Policy & Diplomacy while he performed poorly in Security and Power receiving a (1) rating respectively. Finally, 47 percent of Nigerians surveyed acknowledged that they experienced an improvement in power supply in their household thus representing an 11-point increase from October 2014.

The opinion poll was conducted in the week of November 24.

It involved telephone interviews of a random nationwide sample. 1,000 randomly selected phone-owning Nigerians aged 18 years and above, representing the six geopolitical zones in the country, were interviewed.

“With a sample of this size, we can say with 95 percent confidence that the results obtained are statistically precise - within a range of plus or minus 3 percent,” NOIPolls stated.

Said to be the leading firm for country specific polling services in West Africa, NOIPolls works in technical partnership with the United States’ Gallup Organisation to conduct periodic opinion polls and studies on various socio-economic and political issues in Nigeria.
