In the first quarter of 2023, the candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25 presidential election, Mr Peter Obi, topped the searches in Nigeria, according to data collated by Google, the search engine platform used for the enquiries.

Mr Obi is in the court to challenge the announcement of the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Bola Tinubu, as the winner of the exercise.

In a report made available to Business Post, it was disclosed that the electoral umpire for the presidential poll, INEC, was also among the top searches in the period under review.

In the Google Trends, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Atiku Abubakar, was fifth on the log, while the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) made it into the list because of its Naira redesign policy, which almost brought down the nation’s economy and subjected many Nigerians into untold hardship, sparking protests in some cities, with some banks and their facilities destroyed by angry demonstrators.

In the realm of music, homegrown talent took centre stage as Nigerians avidly sought out the latest tunes. Spyro’s infectious hit, Who is your guy? claimed the top spot, with Ruger’s Asiwaju and Carry me go by Boy Spyce and Khaid securing second and third places, respectively.

The nation’s collective curiosity was also evident in the top trending questions, which ranged from When is Easter 2023? and When is WAEC 2023 starting? to How to check my polling unit? and Who is the President of Nigeria?. Unsurprisingly, the popularity of Spyro’s song sparked the question, Who is your guy?, further showcasing Nigeria’s deep-rooted love for the tune.

Here are the complete lists of top trending searches reflecting the diverse interests of Nigerians during the first quarter of the year:
