A sizeable 63.1 percent of respondents on the TELL website have disagreed with the opinion held by the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, and its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari that the April 16 presidential elections were rigged.
The CPC has since filed a suit asking for the Elections Tribunal to review the legality of President Goodluck Jonathan’s victory in the elections that caused loss of lives after riots in some parts of the North after results were announced in April.
Some 34.4 per cent of respondents agreed with the CPC while 2.5 per cent was undecided. A total number of 480 readers responded to the poll that ran from May 1 to June 7, 2011.
Jonathan won the presidential elections with 58.9 per cent of the votes in April as against 31.98 per cent won by his opponent Buhari.
