Cross River North: Appeal Court refuses to review judgment given in Jarigbe’s favour
The Court of Appeal in Abuja has dismissed two applications requesting it to review its July 30 judgment affirming Jarigbe Ago Jarigbe as the valid candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the December 5, 2020 by-election in Cross River North Senatorial District.
A five-member panel, led by the President of the Court of Appeal , Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, held in two rulings on Saturday, that the court lacked the jurisdiction to sit on appeal over its decision.
It said the applications by Joe Odey Agi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Stephen Adi Odey of the PDP – marked: CA/C/195m/2021 and CA/C/199m/2021 – were without merit and intended to annoy the Court.
