Supreme Court throws out APC’s request to review Bayelsa ruling for lacking in merit

Court throws out APC’s request - Politics and News Blog in Nigeria

The Supreme Court has dismissed an application for review of the judgment which sacked the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa state, David Lyon and his deputy, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo.

In a judgement read out by Justice Amina Augie, she argued that the application lacked merit, adding that the decisions of the court are final.

The Justice also stated that the party failed to prove without reasonable doubt any errors in the previous judgement and declared that the judgement would remain for all ages.

The apex court judge said the judgment is final in the ‘real sense’ and no court on earth can review the judgment.

“There must be an end to litigation even if we review this judgment, every disaffected litigant will bring similar applications and the finality of Supreme Court judgments will be lost.”

In what was a double blow for the APC, the court asked the applicants to pay N10M in damages to the counsel.
