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.
A seven-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta described the applications filed by the APC and its governorship candidate at the poll, David Lyon as a gross abuse of court process.
According to Justice Amina Augie who read the judgment, the application lacks merit, adding that the decisions of the court are final.
She also said that the applicants failed to point out errors, stating that the judgment is final for all ages.
“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.”
She added that the applications are frivolous and vexatious, and awarded the cost of N10 million against each the applicants to be personally paid by their counsel.
