On June 12, 2013, a website that will give updates on the forth coming Nigerian General Elections in 2015 will be unveiled in Abuja and the 36 states of the federation in honour of the slain Nigerian democratic hero, M.K.O Abiola, who won the 1993 Presidential election, but never lived to serve.

While President Goodluck Jonathan is yet to make an official statement on June 12 and and his stand on the 2015 general elections, the 9japolls.com idea is also borne out of the creative ingenuity of applying the advantages of developments in internet and mobile telephony communication system in data collation and processing.In the world today, all human beings now have a mobile phone and use the internet, so it is with this that the election opinion polls will be conducted.
Automatically Nigeria’s first online election opinion poll, the website will bring news from across the Nigerian political world, from political philosophies, to party system and analysis, zoning system and its effect in the nation’s polity and also make moves to monitor the election process. The site will also expose candidates and aspirants vying for electoral offices, and guide the populace on how to make the right choice and defend their votes.
This idea is from the stables of two Nigerians under the auspices of Grassroot Footprint Network (G.F.N); an Akwa Ibom based social-political group existing in Abuja and other states of the federation. If properly run without bias, the site will give great and intriguing insight into the minds of the people and possibly forecast the elections, or at worst, guide people in the area of choice of candidate and decision making.
