The All Progressives Congress (APC) and its Bayelsa State governorship candidate, David Lyon did not only lose their appeal at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

They also lost millions of Naira, which their lawyers were ordered to pay to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri and his deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo.

After Lyon was recently sacked by the Supreme Court as the governor-elect of Bayelsa State, Adams Oshiomhole, the APC national chairman had insisted that the party would return to the apex court to ask for a review of the ruling.

Not wasting time, they headed straight to the apex court and prayed it to review the ruling.

And the court without hesitation accepted their appeal and fixed February 26, 2020 for the review.

However, by the end of the review of the matter, the APC and its Bayelsa governorship candidate did not only suffer a second defeat but also lost millions of Naira.

Justice Amina Augie, who read the judgment said Lyon's appeal had no merit.

Not happy that Oshiomhole led APC and Lyon bothered the apex court with frivolous and vexatious application, the judge ordered their lawyers to pay the sum of N10 million each to Governor Douye Diri, his deputy Mr Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo and the PDP.

Not a few members of the party are accusing Oshiomhole of making the party lose some state to the opposition PDP.

Even the crisis rocking the party have been constantly blamed on its national chairman, who constantly being accused of making unguarded utterances.

Its not clear if the out come of the Wednesday ruling will worsen the campaign for Oshiomhole to be axed as the chairman of the ruling APC.

One thing is clear, however, had Oshiomhole not led the party to return to the apex court, there was no way APC and Lyon would have suffered a second defeat and millions of Naira
