BREAKING: Lawan loses out as court affirms Machina APC Yobe North senatorial candidate

The Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State, has ordered the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognise Bashir Machina as Yobe North senatorial candidate of the party.


The presiding judge, Justice Fadima Murtala Aminu, nullified the parallel primary election that produced the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on June 9, 2022.


The Judge also ordered the APC to forward the name of Machina to INEC as the authentic winner of the primary held in May.


Machina had, weeks ago, distanced himself from a purported viral video claiming that he had withdrawn from the race.
