Yobe North: Machina hails triumph over Lawan in court as victory for justice

Aspiring Senator, Bashir Machina, has praised the judgement of the Federal High Court in Damataru which declared him as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Yobe North Senatorial District for the 2023 general elections.

The presiding judge, Justice Fadima Murtala Aminu, nullified the parallel primary election that produced the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, on June 9, 2022.

In a statement, hours after the court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to recognise him as the candidate, Machina described the judgement as “a victory for justice“.

Wednesday’s judgement is a significant development in the controversy that has followed the APC primary in Yobe North Senatorial District and is another blow for Lawan, who is hoping to return to the Senate via the ticket.
