2019: Buhari will defeat Atiku, America's Eurasia Group predicts

Eurasia Group, an international political risk consultancy, says President Muhammadu Buhari will win the February 16 presidential election.

In its final Eurasia Group Politics First election forecast, the group said Buhari has a 60 percent probability of winning the election.

“Opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar has regained some momentum in recent weeks, but President Muhammadu Buhari remains favored to win (a 60% probability),” the group said.

“On election day, the ruling All Progressives Congress’s (APC’s) significantly greater control of local political structures and resources— it governs 23 states compared to the opposition’s 12— will boost voter mobilization and solidify Buhari’s advantage.”

It has offices in New York City (its headquarters), Washington, D.C., London, Tokyo, São Paulo, San Francisco, and Singapore.
