Zamfara Elections: Supreme Court strikes out APC’s application

The Supreme Court today struck out application for a review of its May 24, 2019 judgment on the 2019 general elections held in Zamfara State.

However, Counsel to the All Progressives Congress, Chief Robert Clarke, SAN, vowed to re-file the application.

A five-man panel led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour unanimously struck out the application on the ground that the application was incompetent as the complete judgments of the apex court comprising all the judgments of the five members of the panel being contested by the party were not attached to the application.

Justice Rhodes-Vivour who delivered the ruling said the applicant only attached the lead judgment and failed to exhibit the consenting judgments of the four other members of the panel which gave the May 24, 2019 verdict.

It held that all the votes credited to the party and its candidates in the elections were wasted.

The apex court then declared the first runners-up in the 2019 general elections in the state PDP as the winners of all the offices earlier declared to have been won by the APC and its candidates.
