Yobe North: Appeal Court Declares Machina APC Candidate


November 28, (THEWILL) – The Court of Appeal, Abuja, has declared Bashir Sheriff Machina, as the authentic candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Yobe North Senatorial District.

The court upheld the judgment of the Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State, which earlier sacked the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, and confirmed Machina as the APC candidate for Yobe North Senatorial District in next year’s election into the National Assembly.

The court held that Lawan did not participate in the legally recognised primary election of the APC to select its candidate in the election held on 28th May 2022.


Delivering judgment on the appeal filed by the Senate President, a three-member panel of the appellate court, led by Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, held that the primary election conducted by the party on 9th June is invalid, as it was in breach of the constitution.

The appellant (APC) is to pay the sum of N1 million to the 1st respondent (Bashir Sheriff) as cost.
