Edo 2020: Flash Poller scores Obaseki 76.3%, Ize-Iyamu 23.7% on CHANNELS TV Guber Debate

…respondents rank Obaseki higher on elocution, firm grasp of development issues rubrics

Shortly after the CHANNELS Television Governorship Debate which featured candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Godwin Obaseki and Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the  All Progressives Congress (APC), on Sunday night, the result just received from Flash Poller, an international pollster, shows Obaseki garnered 76.3 per cent of the positive votes while APC’s Ize-Iyamu scored 23.7 per cent. 
The viewers who were sampled randomly by Flash Poller, noted that the Edo State Governor and standard bearer of the PDP, demonstrated a firm understanding of development issues, namely; resource mobilisation, partnership with development actors such as the World Bank and his high premium on due process, transparency and the rule of law. 

Some participants linked Obaseki’s outstanding performance in the area highlighted above, to his vast experience in the corporate world, his finance background, his eight-year job as head of the Economic Management Team in the state and his four years as governor of the state.  
“From Obaseki’s presentation, it is glaring that he understands modern tools of development and governance, such as the effective deployment of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and strategic partnership with the private sector, traditional institution and other development actors,” a viewer of the CHANNELS TV Debate, and poll respondent, told Flash Poller. 
However, Ize-Iyamu’s 23.7 per cent votes came on the back of his perceived ability to galvanise the political class, given his longer history in partisan politics. But the viewers surveyed said they wouldn’t know how this affinity with the political class would translate to enhanced socio-economic status for majority of Edo people. 

Specifically, the sampled population for the poll scored Obaseki higher than the APC candidate in elocution, presentation, comportment, appreciation of issues, use of rebuttal, use of argument, factuality and comportment, amongst other rubrics, with an average score of 7 to 3, in favour of the PDP candidate. 
Ize-Iyamu lost points when the viewers surveyed expressed higher readiness to entrust the state’s resources in the hands of the PDP candidate, as according to them “Ize-Iyamu failed to acknowledge some achievements of the Obaseki-led administration, such as education reforms; projects like the Ossiomo Independent Power Plant and the Edo Modular Refinery, which are on ground in the state.” 
The respondents added: “In a debate of this nature, debaters score higher when they are honest. Ize-Iyamu should have acknowledged those achievements of Obaseki. Failure to do that means he is not truthful and cannot be trusted by viewers. You must be seen to be trustworthy. He was in a hurry to outshine and outdo Obaseki, so he thought debate is about plenty talk to discredit or rubbish your opponent.”    
The debate grading or scoring rubrics used in the survey, included; presentation, comportment, appreciation of issues, use of rebuttal, use of argument, factuality, mutual respect, questions for opponent; elocution and use of time. 

Flash Polls, according to Barometr.com, “are a type of survey designed to quickly reach a target audience with a time-sensitive goal. They can take on a variety of forms and are popular in many sectors. Although used frequently during political campaigns, flash polls are common across all sectors. “Most flash polls are based on pre-built templates. This allows them to be deployed rapidly in response to an event or major topic. Due to their limited time-frame, they rely heavily on statistical inference to make up for a limited sample size.”
The population of the surveyed group comprised people located in Edo State and other parts of the world, who watched the CHANNELS TV Governorship Debate, and are very familiar with the issues surrounding the Edo gubernatorial election.

    A large percentage of of the things you mention is astonishingly legitimate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. Your piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. Nevertheless there is 1 factor I am not too comfortable with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the central idea of the issue, allow me observe just what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Nicely done.

    I run a vape store directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the United States that likewise offers for sale CBD products. A Month later on, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store web directory. We do not sell CBD product lines like CBD oil. We merely offer web marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they offer for sale a pretty extensive range of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment solution. It emerges that PayPal is employing twos sets of rules to many different firms. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment options and now, I am greatly reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have gotten in touch with a barrister from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is altogether unlawful and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform criterion to all companies. I am still to consult yet another attorney from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with substitute payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
