Dennis Idahosa’s path to represent Ovia Federal Constituency in the National Assembly has gained growing plausibility with a flurry of poll numbers showing the APC candidate on the ascent over Omosede Igbinedion in key communities regarded as the battle ground zones.
Denco’s new momentum is the product of a hazardous period for Omosede Igbinedion , in which she earned fervent backlash for neglect of her followers ,and the infamous tag of YOU CHOP I CHOP video gone viral.
Now two latest polls shows Dennis is ahead with electorates at Igoubazuwa ,Okada and Okhun communities , break down of the IDK electoral polls conducted showed Dennis acceptance in Usen and also placing him on the lead in Umaza,Siluko,Sayo,Obobaifo,Essi and Okunzuwa communities .Additionally, a RTE survey puts Denco in majority in the Ijaw communities namely: Ufunama, Ugbo, Nikorowa and Ajakurama.
Many political observers who doubted the emergence of Dennis Idahosa are now recalibrating their opinions and wondering how Omosede will stop her own slide – a stark indication of how volatile the campaign remains with less than 10 days to election
“Omosede is just not a very good candidate. She doesn’t have campaign skills, comes off as shrill, and has a cloud hanging over her,” says Omoruyi, a senior political strategist at RTE survey . Dennis has “shown a new level of message discipline. That’s why this election has tightened up.”
A survey of Okada found that a higher proportion of men and older voters are indicating their likelihood to cast their ballots for Dennis Idahosa whom they see as a Liberator.
Dennis victory is predicated on garnering an unprecedented portion of women voters .
