Lawan loses as INEC confirms Machina as APC Yobe North candidate



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

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has confirmed Bashir Machina as the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yobe North senatorial candidate.

The announcement by the electoral body brings to an end the lingering controversy of who the APC candidate for the senatorial district.

Machina and the Senate President Ahmed Lawan have been at loggerhead over who the APC candidate is.

Although Lawan did not contest the Yobe North primary, he was named as the party’s candidate by Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of APC.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan

Instead of contesting the senatorial primary, Lawan had vied for the APC presidential primary losing to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Machina, according to a certified true copy of INEC’s report from May 28, 2022, won the election with 289 votes out of 300 delegates.

The Commission, on June 23, 2022, certified the document and did not mention Ahmad Lawan, the Senate President who has been jostling to return to the Senate on the APC ticket.

Lawan had been allegedly listed as the candidate of the APC for Yobe North senatorial election slated for February 2023, with reports that a primary had been held clandestinely to produce Lawan as candidate.
