The Supreme Court on Wednesday 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.

Delivering the judgement, Justice Amina Augie said the application lacked merit, stressing that the decisions of the court are final.

“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 said.

She added that the applications are frivolous and vexatious, and awarded the cost of N10 million against the applicants to be personally paid by their counsel.

Justice Augie added that the counsels of the APC and Mr Lyon are to each pay Governor Douye Diri, his deputy Mr Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo and the PDP the same N10 million.
