Lawan sacked as APC senatorial candidate for Yobe



A Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu has sacked Senator Ahmed Lawan, the incumbent senate president as APC senatorial candidate for Yobe state.

The court ordered the All Progressives Congress (APC) to submit the name of Bashir Shariff Machina as the authentic candidate for Yobe North Senatorial District after affirming the 28th May 2022 primary election conducted by the party.

Justice Fadimatu Murtala, in a judgment delivered today in Damaturu, also nullified the parallel primary election of 9th June 2022 that produced Ahmed Lawan.

Lawn Counsel, Kolawale Balogun briefed newsmen that his client would be appropriately advised on the next move.
