Supreme Court begins hearing of APC’s application on Zamfara election


The Supreme Court has commenced hearing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) application seeking the review 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 May 24, 2019 judgment 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 but it was refiled in November 2019 by the party’s lawyer, Robert Clarke (SAN).

The five-man panel led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, had on August 22, 2019 unanimously struck out the application on the grounds that it 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.
