Yobe North: Machina heads to court, after Lawan is named APC candidate



Bashir Machina has insisted that he will not step down for Ahmad Lawan

Bashir Machina has vowed to seek legal redress after his name was substituted with that of Senate President Ahmad Lawan as the All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Yobe North.

In a signed list of candidates, the Senate President’s name was listed as the APC flag bearer for Yobe North Senatorial District even though he did not contest election for the seat.

APC’s audacious move comes after Machina, who rightfully clinched the APC ticket, vowed not to step down for Lawan.

Lawan had contested but lost the party’s presidential primary held earlier in the month with Machina claiming he was being pressured to relinquish his ticket for the lawmaker.

In an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on June 16, he reiterated that he was not going to step down.

“I’m sure he did not plan to go back to the National Assembly. That is why he contested for the presidency and lost. This is democracy. The space is free,” Machina said.

“A certain period of time was given for people to want to contest. Timetables were set, guidelines were produced by the parties, and eventually, elections were held.”
