BREAKING: Ahmed Lawan out as Court rules in favour of Machina as APC Candidate

A Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State Capital has ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to accept and publish the name of Bashir Sheriff Machina as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Yobe North senatorial district in 2023.

The declaration was made by the presiding judge, Justice Fadima Aminu on Wednesday.

In her verdict on Wednesday, the judge affirmed Machina as the duly and validly elected candidate for APC, thereby upholding the May 28 primary election of the party that produced him.

Machina had asked the court to declare him authentic senatorial flagbearer of the APC for the 2023 election.
He had emerged the winner of the primary election supervised by INEC officials earlier in the year. The senate president did not participate in the primary.

At the time the exercise was held, Lawan was pursuing his presidential ambition but lost to former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu.
