Yobe North: Court Certifies Machina as Senatorial Candidate

A Damaturu Division of the Federal High Court on Wednesday affirmed Bashir Sheriff Machina as the All Progressives Congress’ senatorial candidate for Yobe North.

Justice Fadima Aminu said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should immediately publish Mr Machina’s name as the ruling party’s candidate in the district’s 2023 National Assembly election.

The judge also said Mr Machina was duly elected senatorial candidate for APC, consequently upholding the May 28 primary election of the party that was also certified by INEC.

Bashir Machina’s mandate was threatened by Senate President Ahmad Lawan, who tried to exploit his relationship with the party leaders to overturn an already certified primary election.
