On Monday, July 22, 2019, the Supreme Court thrashed an application made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, requesting the court to review a decision which it made earlier on the legitimacy of the APC to have taken part in the 2019 general elections.
The five-man panel led by Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour which was set up by the Supreme Court to look into APC’s request, struck out the application in a unanimous ruling, saying that the case lacked merit and was incompetent.
The five-man panel further expressed their displeasure with the All Progressives Congress (APC) for trying to revisit the matter which had earlier been determined by the Supreme Court.
Nigerians have reacted to this new ruling by the supreme court, see some reactions below:
Dear @OfficialAPCNg ,
Pls tell your branch in Zamfara state to stop disgracing themselves by asking supreme court to review their judgment..
This is madness to me and an insult to the supreme court.
What happened in zamfara should be a learning point.

It is very ridiculous for APC to have approached the Supreme Court to reverse its own judgment in the case of Zamfara. Do they want to rewrite the constitution or just want to set a bad precedent with another technicality?
They should not listen to every advice given by Sagay.
