The race for Nigeria’s presidency is being led by a surprise candidate. According to a recent poll, a third-party candidate is the most popular choice to succeed the current president of the most populous nation in Africa.

The previous state governor Peter Obi received a resounding majority of the respondents’ votes in the elections set for February. Premise Data Corp. conducted a survey for Bloomberg News, and the results were released on Wednesday, the first day of the official campaign to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
