Ahead of judgement from the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT), Justice Mary Odili is trending on X formally known as Twitter for the speech she delivered during a recent colloquium.

Reactions have trailed Odili’s speech especially by citizens who insist that retired Supreme Court judge has threatened Nigerians by her utterances regarding the anticipated PEPT judgement.

Here are some of the reactions:

“Few weeks ago Tinubu threaten the Judiciary by telling them “Removing me as president over failure to score 25% in Abuja may trigger anarchy in Nigeria” Just yesterday again Justice Mary Odili threaten Well-meaning Nigerians for demanding fair Judgement at PEPT ? I like HE Peter obi response on Tinubu calling for anarchy “Once anarchy set in, Everybody will be consumed” Justice Mary Odili others should know that when the anarchy comes nobody will be left out.” – Chuks Eric

“Former Supreme Court Justice Mary Odili cannot shut Nigerians up from demanding for democracy and the rule of law. Power belongs to the people. The Justices are working for the people and they can be called to order by the people they serve! Not even Mary Odili can stop us. Read more about her:” – Jaypee General

“Justice Mary Odili threatening Nigerians for demanding fair Judgement at the presidential Tribunal, and also showering time praises at the APC lead counsel at the same time, is a slap on the face of every well-meaning Nigerian. You should be worried.” – Chude Nnamdi

“Wife to the political godfather of Wike and former Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Mary Odili, went to an event and chose to talk about the Election Petition Tribunal. She then singled out Olanipekun SAN who is Tinubu’s lawyer and LO Fagbemi who is APC lawyer and Tinubu’s Attorney General and praised them as good lawyers. She considered them the next thing to slice bread. Her words sounded like anybody they represent must win. She went ahead to tell parties not to bring down the roof of Nigeria if the case does not go their way. Please send this message to her, that UC Maxwell said it: If they pass a judgment that is unjust, it means they have brought down the roof and we will rebuild that roof. Tell her: We will revolt against injustice by all means. I want to call on Nigerians, whether you are Obidient, artikulated or whichever side of the divide you belong, if they serve us in justice, we will pour the food away.” – UC Maxwell

“Watch as former Supreme Court Justice Mary Odili accused @PeterObi and @atiku supporters of blackmailing the PEPT judges. She rains praises on Tinubu’s lawyer, Chief Wole Olanipekun SAN, and APC lawyer, Lateef Fagbemi SAN, now AGF….. calling them the best lawyers in Nigeria on election dispute. Hon. Justice Mary Odili’s husband, Chief Peter Odili (a very calm & composed person), is Nyesom Wike’s best friend (don’t understand how fire & water became friends). Politicaly, Wike has since drawn a battle line against @atiku & and @PeterObi, bragging a few days ago that there’s no way the PEPTJUDGMENT will go against Bola Tinubu ADEKUNLE. Whether Wike has succeeded in buying the #PEPTJudgment that warrant such bragging and confidence is something we will find out in matter of days. Recall also that recently, Justice Mary Odili was accused of being used by Nyesom Wike to influence the decision of the presidential election petition tribunal judges to favor Bola Tinubu. Whether true or not, her choice of words in this video during a book launch in honor of JK GADZAMA SAN gave her away. We keep #AllEyesOnTheJudiciary and continue to insist #TinubuMUSTbeDisqualified.” – Drelmo
