The verdict stated that the judgment of the Supreme court is final, adding that granting Lyon’s application would bring down the credibility and dignity bestowed on the apex court.
“There must be an end to litigation even if we review this judgment, every disaffected litigant will bring similar applications and the finality of Supreme Court judgments will be lost.”
Meanwhile, Justice Augie who read the ruling expressed her disappointment that lawyers of their ilk were involved in the filing of such application.
A report by The Nation stated that “Justice Augie awarded N10milion cost for each of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd respondents (the PDP, its governorship and deputy governorship in the last election) – Sen. Douye Diri and. Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo – to be paid personally by the applicant’s lawyers.”
