Social media followers, party faithful and supporters of ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari have committed to praying for Nigeria as the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal rules on the case involving the two leaders.
The two opposing groups have since adopted two hash tags — #AtikuIsComing and #AtikuBusted — for Atiku and Buhari respectively.
See some of the tweets:
Today is really not the end of the presidential election wahala.
Regardless of who the #PEPT declares winner today, those saying #AtikuIsComing and those saying #AtikuBusted (and NOT coming) will have to wait for the supreme court judgement.
May Nigeria win.

So I read and listened to President Buhari’s camp views as why the campaigns, #AtikuBusted and #Atikuhasnocase were launched.
I expected that they would provide narratives based on happenings in court, admitted evidence and written addresses to energise their base…

Anyone expecting the Tribunal to rule in Atiku’s favor is being delusional. No be this country again? #AtikuBusted

Today is the day that the Lord has made.
Thanking God Almighty because #AtikuIsNotComing because #AtikuHasNoCase as #AtikuBusted several times.

You are trending #AtikuBustedAgain and #AtikuBusted without verifying what you are trending and can’t defend it. Please if anyone is sensible enough, come and tell me how these images you are portraying correlate? pic.twitter.com/SYIoOMw2pb
