Following President Muhammadu Buhari victory over Atiku Abubakar at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday, some Nigerians have taken to social media to express mixed reactions towards the judgement.

While many in support of the verdict have congratulated the President, others expressed different feelings towards the outcome.

On the micro-blogging platform, Twitter , some Nigerians were of the belief that having a certificate or not does not necessarily count in the nation’s scheme of things going by the judgement.

Others, however, expressed disgust at the turn of events.

See some tweets below:
@rizzza tweeted
“The Law Department in Every Higher Institution Should be Scrapped. #PEPTJudgement”

@Papadonkee tweeted
““School na scam”.

That’s what young people are saying because of the #PEPTJudgement and Buhari.

It’s a shame.

Look beyond Nigeria. An education will open doors to the world for you. Buhari is an anomaly we will get past.”

@nnaji_kate tweeted
“BREAKING!!!
Incase you didnt hear when PEPT affirmed it, let me repeat it boldly for y’all,
“PRESIDENT @MBuhari WAS QUALIFIED ENOUGH TO RUN FOR THE 2019 ELECTION” and that it deludes common sense to think He doesnt have a certificate.

@EbituPromise tweeted
“I think it’s time for some people to start sending their apologizes to @KemiAdeosunng.

#PEPT has proven to us that school is a scam. Just swear an affidavit that you have certificates then you are good to go.🤷🏻‍♂️

Weldone Judges at #PEPT 👏

#PEPTJudgement”

@OAkindunjoye tweeted
“The Judge in dismissing Atiku’s petition just said the classmates of Buhari that testified in his favour cannot not lie or twist the truth by virtue of their age.

He said ‘Because they are old men, they cannot lie’.

Are you kidding me?? #PEPTJudgement #PEPT #PEPTUpdate” https://t.co/Az7yozVopz

@AkintondeSteven tweeted
“Whether Atiku or Buhari, the truth is I don’t believe in justice from Nigerian courts. This generation and the next is lost. Don’t come and argue with me. To all Nigerian graduates, your certificates are irrelevant
Just join politics. That’s it
#PEPTSAVENIGERIA #PEPTJudgement”

@OGBENI_BAMBAM tweeted
“Justice Garba just said that presenting certificates isn’t necessary, just swear an affidavit that you have one 😂

#AtikuBusted Again😂

“”If the 2nd Respondent, @MBuhari has not presented his secondary school Certificate to the @HQNigerianArmy during his commission, where did the Army get the academic qualifications quoted in form 199 by the Army?”~ Presidential Election Tribunal

Simple! #PEPTJudgement”

@BashirAhmaad tweeted
“President @MBuhari dedicates his victory at the #PEPTJudgement to God, and to Nigerians, and also commends the judiciary for dispensing justice without fear or favour.” https://t.co/xBdPoKSLET

@AriyoAristotle tweeted
“This Court of Appeal on its own through “legal trance” went back to 1961 to manufacture, create and invent academic qualifications and credentials for Buhari, and through its well suspected pronouncements used the court to dump them at the Military Board.

@is_salsu tweeted
“There’s really nothing to celebrate or be happy about irrespective of who the #PEPTJudgement favored. Nigeria is in a total mess and we just need this Country fixed.”
