Delivering the lead judgment, Justice Kayode Ariwoola ruled that the apex can not sit on appeal on it’s decision which is final. He said the application lacks merit and is consequently dismissed.

Six other justices on the panel justices Ibrahim Muhammad, Sylvester Ngwuta, Amina Augie, and Nwali Abba Aji supported the ruling.

Justice Cletus Nweze descended in his ruling and stated that Supreme Court has the power to correct it’s own mistake.

Therefore set aside the judgment of January 14. 2020 and ordered the withdrawal of certificate of return issued to Gov Ihedioha
