The Supreme Court has commenced hearing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) application seeking the review of its judgment on the Zamfara election.
A five-man panel of the Supreme court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Mohammed is reviewing the judgment given on May 24, 2019 which nullified the victory of all the party’s candidates at the 2019 general elections held in the state.
The Supreme Court had on July 22, 2019, struck out the APC’s application asking the Apex Court to review its judgment on the governorship election.

In a ubioreportsimous ruling by a five-man panel of justices led by Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour, the apex court said the application was incompetent and lacked merit.
The panel added that the application should not have been brought before it in the first place.
Reacting to the ruling, the lead counsel to the appellant, Robert Clarke, said the decision of the court was based on technicalities, stressing that the merits of his application were not looked into.
He added that he would tighten the loose ends that the judgment pointed out and submit his application again.
