Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state is currently at the lead in a poll organised by the African Leadership Magazine to determine Nigeria’s top performing Governor.

He closely trailed by Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state who has polled 25% of the votes.
The poll, according to its organisers, was designed by the group as part of its strategic engagement tool to monitor performance and gauge the mood of the electorates in Nigeria in line with its objective of providing credible information and support to leaders in Nigeria and Africa at large.

Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state is in the third place with 8.8%, while Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state is in the fourth position with 7.9% of the total vote casts.
