BREAKING: Supreme Court affirms Lawan as authentic Candidate of Yobe North

Date:

The Supreme Court has affirmed the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, as the authentic All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Yobe North in the forthcoming 2023 general election.

In a majority judgment delivered on Monday, the Apex Court allowed the appeal filed by the APC against Bashir Machina’s candidature.

Recall that the Senate President had gone before the appellate court to challenge the judgement of a Federal High Court in Damaturu, which had on September 28, 2022, declared Machina as the bonafide flag-bearer of the APC for the impending senatorial election.

Ahmad Lawan had twice lost his bid for re-election, as the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja affirmed Bashir Machina as the authentic candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the 2023 Yobe North Senatorial District election.

It will be recalled that while Lawan, picked the presidential form of the APC and participated in the primary election that was won by Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, Machina contested and won his bid to take over as candidate of the party for the senatorial contest.
