The Supreme Court has dismissed the application by the APC seeking a review of its judgment on February 13 which removed its candidate, David Lyon and his deputy Degi Eremionyo.

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. 

Earlier lawyers to Lyon and APC, Afe Babalola and Wole Olanipekun, both Senior Advocates of Nigeria, asked the apex court to review its judgement for violating natural justice.

Olanipekun argued that the judgement of the Federal High Court which disqualified the deputy governorship candidate of the APC, Degi Eremionyo and upheld by the Supreme Court, did not make a consequential order on the governorship candidate and the swearing-in of PDP’s Duoye Diri.
