The Supreme Court has dismissed the request made the by All Progressives Congress (APC) for it to review its last judgment in which it voided the participation of 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 early on Monday, struck out the 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 take a second look at the decision given earlier this year.

It would be recalled that on the 24th May, 2019, the supreme court ruled that the All Progressives Congress did not conduct valid primaries in the 2019 general elections which validated the earlier judgement by the Court of Appeal, Sokoto States Division

The supreme Court further ruled unanimously by seven-member panel that a party that had no valid candidate cannot be said to have emerged winner of the recently conducted general elections.
