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.

According to Justice Amina Augie who read the judgment, the application lacks merit, adding that 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.

In the lead judgment by Justice Amina Augie, the Supreme Court ordered lawyers to the APC and Lyon, Afe Babalola and Wole Olanipekun, both senior advocates of Nigeria, to pay the three respondents the sum of N10m each making it N60m in person.
