Supreme Court Dismisses APC’s Application On Review of Bayelsa election

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.


The supreme court had sacked David Lyon and his Deputy, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, a day to their Inauguration.
 Justice Amina Augie who read the judgment on Wednesday, said  the application lacked merit and the decisions of the court are final.


She added that the applicants failed to point out errors, stating that the judgment is final 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.”
