The opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has rejected the decision of Supreme Court’s decision to reserve judgment in the matter of review of its earlier judgment on Zamfara State which ousted the elected APC government.
In a press conference on Tuesday evening, the opposition party, through its publicity secretary, Mr Kola Olagbodiyan, frown at the decision of the apex court, noting that such did not follow its earlier established trends on Bayelsa and Imo review cases.
According to the party, the apex court latest decision “another plot by the APC to once again manipulate the judicial process and secure judgment through the back door”.
The party goes on to state that “Nigerians will recall that the Supreme Court had consistently decided on the finality of judgments reached at the court. As such, all issues bordering on review were never reserved for judgment because of its belief in the infallibility of its own judgment. Our party is concerned that the surprising decision to reserve this judgment is not in tandem with the established practice of the highest court, which was reaffirmed in its judgments on the Bayelsa and Imo state governorship elections, where it dismissed the applications for review on the grounds that it lacked jurisdiction to review its own judgment.”
