The Supreme Court has rejected a request for it to review its last judgment in which it voided the participation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidates in the last elections in Zamfara State.

A five-man panel of the court, led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, in a ruling on Monday morning, struck out an application marked: SC/377/2019 filed by the APC, seeking a review of the judgement.

The court rejected effort by the lawyer to the APC, Robert Clarke (SAN), to make take a second look at the decision given earlier this year.

It would be recalled that the peoples democratic party had cried out over the weekend of attempts by the chairman of the ruling all progressives congress, Adams Oshiomhole and the immediate governor of Zamfara state in conjunction with other party chieftains to manipulate events and cause the apex court to revisit the case and reverse its earlier judgment to favour the party.
