A recent national survey, #NigeriaSpeaks, conducted by the Africa Polling Institute (API), paints a stark picture of President Bola Tinubu’s first year in office. The survey reveals a deep-seated dissatisfaction among Nigerians with his leadership.

The study underscores the prevalent concerns among Nigerians about escalating hunger, poverty, and governance issues. These concerns have cast a shadow over President Tinubu’s tenure, leading to a significant decline in his approval ratings.

The survey’s findings are indeed grim. A staggering 78% of the respondents rated President Tinubu’s performance as “poor,” with an additional 40% describing it as “very poor.” A mere 22% of respondents believed his performance was “good,” indicating a clear dissatisfaction with his leadership.

Judiciary Leadership

Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, also faced critical reviews, with 44% of respondents rating his performance as “poor” and 25% as “very poor.” However, 20% of the citizens rated his performance as “fair,” indicating a divided opinion on the judiciary’s leadership.
