Are Nigerians elated about this victory or not?, we had to take a walk through the streets of Twitter, and we found that their feelings were mixed.
How Nigerians are reacting to Buhari’s win
Two victories have been secured tonight — one for those who will spend the next 4years bragging about winning re-election, and the other for those who will spend the period bragging "shebi we warned you?" Regardless of where you belong, you won' be out-bragged#NigeriaHasDecided

Ajimobi lost: "No rigging".
Dino won: "free and fair".
Dogara won: "Will of the people". Atiku won in Ondo: "a reflection of the people's will"
BUT Buhari’s victories: "Massive rigging", "Worst election", "Rape on our democracy".
