The Independent National Electoral Commission has affirmed Bashir Machina as the All Progressives Congress candidate for Yobe North Senatorial district, according to a report.
This is as the electoral body distanced itself from the purported primary election, which allegedly produced Ahmad Lawan as the APC senatorial candidate for Yobe North.
The position of the electoral umpire was contained in a legally admissible Certified True Copy of the INEC report for the primary election dated Thursday, 23rd June 2022.
The rightful candidate of the senatorial district became a contentious issue after both Lawan and Machina began laying claim to the seat.
