On Wednesday, October 25, the Supreme Court revealed its intention to issue a verdict within the next 24 hours in the appeal of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi against President Bola Tinubu.

This announcement stirred various responses from the public, with many Nigerians expressing surprise at the swiftness of the court's decision.

In response to this development, Káyọ̀dé Ògúndámisí took to social media to suggest that the quick judgment delivery implies that the case may not be as crucial as initially thought.

He wrote: "It appears the case is so straightforward. Ko gba iregbe. "The Nigerian Supreme Court to deliver ruling on @atiku and @PeterObi's appeal to annul @officialABAT's election as President of Nigeria."

However, another netizen with the X handle, @beninghone, had a different reaction to the situation.

@beninghone wrote: "I am grateful we will have judgement tomorrow and end all these noises of “Atiku is coming” I am not even seeing Obi is coming again all those ones don giv£ up.

"Now who wants to bet with me???

"Atiku and Obi will be disgracefully shamed Tomorrow! We can finally focus on Governance."

Another netizen, @Barakatizelove, wrote: "This is the end of a greedy politician.

"Cry cry cry "

@atiku's retirement is assured. His case will be dismissed. Step down for a Southerner he refused."

@JaypeeGeneral wrote: "From this notice, it is clear that the Supreme Court had its judgment ready even before hearing Atiku’s motion to tender new evidence on Monday! Tomorrow, we will hear whatever they have to say. No one trusts them!"
