Afrobarometer, a non-profit corporation with headquarters in Ghana, is a pan-African, non-partisan survey research network that provides reliable data on African experiences and evaluations of democracy, governance, and quality of life. Seven rounds of surveys were completed in up to 38 countries between 1999 and 2018. Round 8 surveys in 2019/2021 are planned in at least 35 countries. Afrobarometer conducts face-to-face interviews in the language of the respondent’s choice with nationally representative samples. The Afrobarometer National Partner in Nigeria, NOI Polls, interviewed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of 1,599 adult Nigerians between 20 January and 13 February 2020. A sample of this size yields country-level results with a margin of error of +/-2.5 percentage points at a 95% confidence level. Previous surveys have been conducted in Nigeria in1999, 2002, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2017. CDD-Ghana provided technical backstopping for the survey.
