As Nigerians wait with bated breath for the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal(PEPT) to deliver judgment on Atiku Abubakar’s petition against Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the last election, Nigerians are divided as to whether the petitioner or the petitionee will take the day.
While some are rooting for Atiku of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to win the case, others are saying Buhari will maintain his victory because the judiciary has been pocketed.
Taking to Twitter, Nigerians share their sentiments on what might come in a few hours.
Those who believe Atiku will win

Irrespective of whatever happens today, @atiku has been my choice & the choice of millions of progressive minded Nigerians for president, and he always will be.
Good luck to Atiku, good luck to Nigeria.

IN A SANE country the legislature would have impeached a president that forged his certificates. He would have been facing long sentences for forgery and lying under oath. His pension (if he worked for the government in this case the Army) would be terminated. #PEPTSAVENIGERIA

If #PEPT rules that Buhari is the winner without his qualifications to be President, I'm resuming work as GMD of @NNPCgroup as the GMD on Monday. Nobody should tell me rubbish. Who is with me? #JudgementDay #PEPTSAVENIGERIA

Y'all expecting Atiku to win in court today is the funniest wish I have seen here. Y'all ain't here when Buhari singlehandedly removed a duely elected CJN and replaced him with a Kaduna based Sharia court judge?
