It’s no longer breaking news that the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the concluded elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has lost out in his bid to prove that the election of President Buhari was riled with malpractices and therefore not sustainable.
As the Supreme Court gave its ruling, upholding the election of President Muhmmadu Buhari, Nigerians took to social media to air their views on the development.
See some reactions below:
My attention has been drawn to the fact that Supreme court has dismissed Atiku's Appeal
Today's episode reminds of when clattenburg was 'picked' to officiate Chelsea v Man U those Baba Fergie days
The man just gave 2 Red cards to Chelsea and it was game over

The usual suspects started abusing the Supreme Court judges yet? Or they are waiting for the green light?
So @atiku is no longer "CUMMING"
Now we move on………………

It’s now quite obvious that the farce of a Democracy being practised under APC and Buhari may not end anytime soon as the CJN has for the FIRST TIME in any Democratic history in Nigeria departed from norm and handpicked Judges to preside over the Atiku appeal at the SC.

Dear Nigerians, the matter don cast.
PDP cannot save you.
Atiku cannot save you.
The judiciary cannot save you.
The legislature cannot save you.
Only you can save yourself!

One Twitter user was however of the opinion that the real winners were the lawyers of Atiku and his other close supporters due to the amount of money they must have made.
Shout out to
1. Atiku's lawyers
2. The brain behind non-existent INEC server
2. Osita, the useless Star witness
3. The fake Kenyan ICT data analyst
4. Vociferous Segun Showunmi
5. Atiku's online defenders
Y'all are the real winners of Atiku's FAILED appeal. Y'all cashed out.
