Supreme Court Dismisses APC’s Application For Bayelsa Judgment Review

In a unanimous judgement, a seven-member panel of the apex court, led by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, held that the application by the APC and Mr Lyon lacks merit and the court lacks the jurisdiction to review its own judgement.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed an application filed by the All Progressive Congress (APC), asking it to reverse a judgement that sacked David Lyon as governor-elect of Bayelsa State.

In a unanimous judgement, a seven-member panel of the apex court, led by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, held that the application by the APC and Mr Lyon lacks merit and the court lacks the jurisdiction to review its own judgement.

Reading the lead judgement, Justice Amina Augie, in an angry tone said, “No force on earth can force the court to change its decision.”

Justice Augie further awarded the cost of N10 million each against the first, second and third applicants, to be paid to the first, second and third respondents, respectively.
