The Supreme Court has dismissed the application for judicial review filed by the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Zamfara State against the nullification of its candidates victories in the 2019 general elections.
In a lead judgement delivered by Justice Inyang Okoro, the apex court held that the application is a vexatious, frivolous and gross abuse of court process.
The court then awarded the cost of N2 million to be paid by the applicant to the 1st to 140th respondents.
Justice Okoro further held that the apex court lacks the jurisdiction to entertain an application seeking a review of its own judgement as the finality of the judgement of the apex court is sealed and cannot be reviewed under any guise.
However, Justice Centus Nweze disagrees with the other members of the panel as he reads a dissenting judgment upholding the application of the APC.
He insists that it is better to admit an error instead of justifying an error that fails to represent justice. He adds that the Supreme Court can reverse itself.
Justice Nweze further insists that the judgement of the court favours the PDP who was not a party to the suit in the first place and orders the setting aside the earlier judgement of the court.
