Social media users have continued to react to the decision of the Supreme Court, which on Wednesday, affirmed the election of Governor Nyesom Wike as the as the valid winner of the poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

While many applauded the ruling, a few others, however, faulted it.

Justice Kekere-Ekun who delivered the lead verdict, held that three separate appeals that were filed by Wike, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and INEC, were meritorious, thereby setting aside concurrent judgments of both the Rivers State Governorship Election ‎Petition Tribunal and that of the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal.

The apex court panel headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed however reserved their reasons for the judgement till February 12.

Wike had beat his major challenger, Dakuku Peterside of the All Progressives Congress (APC), during the governorship election that held on April 11, 2015.
