Supreme Court Hears APC’s Request for Bayelsa Judgment Review Wednesday

The Supreme Court has fixed Wednesday for the hearing of the All Progressives Congress’ application for a review of its February 13, 2020 judgment which overturned its victory in the last governorship election in Bayelsa State.
It was learnt on Sunday that as of Friday, the parties to the case had been served with the notice for the scheduled Wednesday's hearing.
The disputed apex court ’s judgment was delivered barely 24 hours to the inauguration of the party ’s governorship candidate, David Lyon, and his running mate, Biobarakuma Degi -Eremienyo, scheduled to hold on February 14.
The five -man panel of the court led by Justice Mary Peter-Odili disqualified Degi -Eremienyo's candidacy and ruled that the disqualification had rendered the joint ticket held by him and the governorship candidate a nullity.
