INEC accepts Ahmad Lawan as APC senatorial candidate for Yobe North
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has recognised Ahmad Lawan as the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress for Yobe North Senatorial District.
Mr Lawan’s name was uploaded on INEC’s server by the ruling party alongside other senatorial candidates across the 36 states of the country and the Federal Capital Territory.
Mr Lawan did not participate in the party’s primary. Bashir Machina, who contested the primary in the district and won, has been contesting the party’s determination to steal his mandate. He vowed never to back down on his mandate.
On Thursday, Peoples Gazette reported that the APC had written INEC, informing the electoral body that Mr Lawan, Senate President since 2019, will be its nominee for the district.
