The bid of the All Progressive Congress (APC), to upturn the judgment of the Supreme Court which annulled it’s victory in the Bayelsa State Governorship Election has failed.
This follows the dismissal of the application of the review sought by the party.
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 also 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.
Bittertruth Media recalls that the Supreme Had on February 14 sacked Chief David Lyon and his deputy who had earlier won the Governorship Election over a certificate forgery case brought before the apex court by the PDP and it’s candidate now governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri.
