Supreme Court has given itsfinal decision on APC judgment investigationfinal decision on APC judgment investigation in Zamfara.
OnyxNews Nigeria reports that the Supreme Court has dismissed the application for judicial review filed by the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Zamfara State against Senator Kabiru Marafa and 179 others.
This online news platform understands that the apex court led by Justice Inyang Okoro’s judgment that the application is displeasing, frivolous and gross abuse of court procedures. Subsequently, the Supreme court awarded the cost of N2m to be paid by the applicant to the 1st to 140th respondents.
Furthermore, Justice Okoro held that the apex court lacks the jurisdiction to entertain an application seeking a review of its own judgment as the finality of the judgment of the supreme court is sealed and cannot be reviewed under any form.
Meanwhile, Justice Centus Nweze, however, disagrees with the other members of the panel as he reads a dissenting judgment upholding the application of the APC. Justice Nweze insists that it is better to admit a mistake instead of justifying it that fails to represent justice. He adds that the Supreme Court can reverse itself.
The Supreme Court judge further insists that the judgment of the court favours the PDP who was not a party in the first place to the case and orders the wave aside the earlier court judgment.
