The Senate President.

The Senate President, Senator Ahmed Lawan has finally accepted the judgement of the federal high court given against him and the National Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, which ordered his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to forward the name of his supposed place-holder, Bashir Machina, while he was away contesting for the presidential primary, who won the senatorial primaries for the Yobe North.

According to a Twit he shared through his Twitter account, he wrote, “Yesterday, Wednesday, 28th September, 2022, the Federal High Court in Damaturu delivered judgement on the rightful candidate for Yobe North Senatorial District for the 2023 National Assembly elections.

The said judgement disqualifies my candidature and therefore my participation in the elections.

After due consultations with my political associates, supporters and well-wishers, I have decided not to appeal against the judgement. I accept the judgement.

At this juncture, I deem it appropriate to thank His Excellency, Senator Ibrahim Gaidam for the leadership role in the APC political family in Yobe State. I also thank His Excellency, Governor Mai Mala Buni for the support and brotherhood.

To my constituents, I thank you all for your unflinching support, loyalty and unreserved committment to the course of building our people and Yobe North Senatorial District and indeed Yobe State.

I want to assure you that I will continue to serve you in my personal and any other capacity at all times. 

We journeyed together for a long time, and this journey will remain a life long journey. It has been a wonderful relationship and it can only get stronger. I am indebted to you all. Alhamdulillah.
