The Yobe North Senatorial District crisis seems to have been put to rest as Senate President Ahmad Lawn has resolved not to appel the court ruling that was not in his favour.
The ruling affirmed that Bashir Machina is the lawful and legitimate Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress of the Yobe North Senatorial District in the 2023 elections..
The court ordered the APC to transmit Mr Machina’s name to the electoral body, INEC, as the candidate.
The Yobe North senatorial ticket sparked controversy after Machina, who won the primary, made it clear he would not step down for Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.
Recall that Ahmad Lawan had contested for the APC presidential ticket in May, but lost to Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
There was also no records of Lawan’s participation in the APC senatorial primaries evenlthough the APC chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, disclosed that the aspirant took part in the elections.
But Ahmad Lawan, was eventually listed as the APC senatorial candidate for the 2023 general election, leaving Machina who actually won the elections out of the picture.
