The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed the applications for a review of its February 13, 2020, judgment which overturned the All Progressives Congress’ victory in the last governorship election in Bayelsa State.

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 vexatious, frivolous, and constituted a gross abuse of court process.

Justice Amina Augie who read the lead judgment said the applications amount to an invitation for the apex court to sit in appeal on its earlier judgment in violation of the Constitution.
