INEC Ignores Senate President and Certifies Bashir Machina Winner Of Yobe North APC senatorial primary

Still in the contentious and rancorous forth and back of the Yobe north APC primary between Ahmad Lawan and Bashir Machina, The Independent National Electoral Commission has affirmed Bashir Machina as the winner of the ruling All Progressives Congress primary for the Yobe North Senatorial District.

A certified true copy of INEC’s report from the May 28, 2022, election showed Mr Machina scored 289 votes out of 300 delegates, corroborating the politician’s public claim that he won the primary and legally emerged candidate.

The document, certified by the electoral office on June 23, 2022, did not mention Ahmad Lawan, the Senate President who has been labouring to steal Mr Machina’s mandate in collusion with the party’s national chairman Abdullahi Adamu.

Mr Adamu had listed Mr Lawan as the candidate of the APC for Yobe North senatorial election slated for February 2023, claiming that a primary had secretly held in which Mr Lawan purportedly emerged winner.
