OpenAI’s chatbot, ChatGPT has predicted who wins Nigeria Election, among Peter Obi, Atiku, Kwankwaso and Tinubu.
It has given hint on who will win Nigeria’s presidential election come this Saturday.
The artificial intelligence chatbot has become very popular for the possibilities of things that it can do.
Meanwhile, as Nigerians prepare to head to the polls on Saturday to elect who will become the country’s president after president Muhammadu Buhari, many, including the international community want to know who will emerge winner.
Since ChatGPT can be asked several questions and has been giving answers to issues, many people have decided that it just might have a good prediction on who wins Nigeria Election.
The three major presidential candidates who seem to be garnering more support from Nigerians are those of the Labour Party, Peter Obi; The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar and that of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Another candidate equally pulling weight is Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
These presidential candidates have so far done beautiful campaigns across the country and on each rallies they had, they pulled multitudes of supporters.
This massive supports they all enjoy has rather, further raised doubts as to who might likely emerge winner of the election on Saturday.
Consequently, some media practitioners have decided to ask the OpenAI’s almost “all-knowing” chatbot, ChatGPT, to predict who will likely win at the polls as the competition is stiff.
ChatGPT Predicts who wins Nigeria election:
National television media outlet, Arise TV, which asked the AI the question, ChatGPT said the winner will depend on the voter turnout of Nigerians.
According to it, if Nigerians turn out en mass to cast their votes, then the election victory could turn in the direction of the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi.
However, it also said that if voter turnout is poor, then the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu will win the polls.
Analysing the AI’s prediction on live TV, the Arise News said, the AI said the Nigeria’s presidential election coming up on Saturday will be a close contest between Peter Obi and Tinubu.
Th AI completely neglected Kwankwaso in its prediction, the Arise TV news said.
Also, the chatbot pushed Atiku Abubakar of the PDP to third positi0n.
Meanwhile, in another WhatsApp post by a user, he claimed that a prediction from ChatGPT about the elections said victory in the election depends on several factors.
It described the factors to include the political environment, performance of the candidates, the level of voter participation and the prevailing economic conditions.
The response says thus:
“As an AI language model, I cannot predict the outcome of an election or favor any candidate.
“The decision on who wins Nigeria’s presidential election is determined by the Nigerian people who cast their votes.
“The election process involves several stages, including political party primaries, campaigning, and voting.
“The outcome of the election depends on many factors, including the performance of the candidates, the political environment, the prevailing economic conditions, and the level of voter participation.
“It is up to the voters to decide who they want to lead the country, and the Nigerian Electoral Commission is responsible for conducting free, fair, and credible elections.”
Economic situation that could turn the election turnout:
One of the economic situations in the country that could go a long way to decide the outcome of the election is the recent naira redesign and cashless policy.
Till now, Nigerians have not been able to fully access either the old N200 naira notes which is back into circulation nor the new naira notes.
Many Nigerians have suffered untold hardship and while some people have died as a result of naira scarcity, others, especially youths have taken to streets to vandalise and burn down banks and their ATMs.
Banks such as Zenith Bank, Access Bank, First Bank, GT Bank, etc have all been vandalised. Watch video here.
However, despite the unrest and violence, the CBN, under the backings of the Nigerian government, has maintained that the old N5000 and N1000 naira notes have ceased to be legal tender.
Meanwhile, it said the old N200 naira notes will remain legal tender in Nigeria following the directives by the president to the CBN to return old N200 naira notes back to circulation to ease the people’s sufferings.
Conditions Where the predictions may come to reality:
It was pretty much interesting that ChatGPT predicted conditions for which any of the candidates could win the election.
Since it said voter turnout and economic cum political conditions are among, then Nigeria must pay attention to these areas.
First, what the AI’s prediction means is that if there is unrest, violence and as well hunger, then the people could give in to election rigging.
This is because, corrupt politicians could capitalise on the situation and launch vote-buying to induce voters into voting against their original choice candidates.
FG and CBN maintain plan against vote buying:
Meanwhile, the CBN and the Federal Government have maintained that the new redesign and renewed focus on cashless policy is strongly aimed at blocking politicians from engaging in electoral malpractices.
Meanwhile, to avoid poor voter turnout, Nigeria must beefup security so as to instill trust in the voters to come out and exercise their civic responsibilities of electing who becomes their president.
Also, the CBN and the Federal government must make the naira available to Nigerians and ease their sufferings so that they will not fall victims to vote-buying.
Who do you think will win the election on Saturday?
