PDP dumps plans to seek review of S’Court judgments
The Peoples Democratic Party may have abandoned plans to seek a review of the Supreme Court judgment dismissing its case against the election of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).But the party indicated on Monday that it would approach the apex court to review its judgment.
The Supreme Court stopped David Lyon of the APC from being inaugurated as Bayelsa State governor, along with Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, on the eve of his inauguration after the deputy governor-elect submitted forged certificates to the INEC.The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, who spoke at a press conference in Abuja, also called on the Supreme Court to review its judgments on the governorship elections in four states.
Ologbondiyan also demanded a review of the Supreme Court judgment on the 2019 Kaduna State election won by Nasir El-Rufai of the APC.Ologbondiyan said the PDP was demanding reviews of the judgments because of the alleged plot by the APC “to pressure the justices of the Supreme Court to upturn the judgment of Justice Mary Odili-led panel on the Bayelsa State governorship election.”
Justice Amina Augie announced the fine while reading the judgment on Wednesday in the application for a review of its February 13 judgment sacking Lyon in favour of Diri.She said the application amounted to what she described as an invitation for the apex court to sit on its own judgment in violation of the constitution.
She said granting the application would open a floodgate for the review of decisions of the Supreme Court.It was also argued, according to sources, that the PDP as a former ruling party must not be seen to contribute to any attempt at ridiculing the judiciary.
‘‘But there were those who felt that we should let bygones be bygones. That’s why we are having a rethink.’’It arrived at this decision after it added figures from 388 polling units that had been excluded by INEC.He stated that Ihedioha’s matter was different and had attracted global attention.
The parties to the case are expected to return to the Supreme Court on Monday when the case will be heard and probably summarily decided.
