The Supreme Court has restored the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan as the Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, for Yobe North Senatorial District.

In the lead judgment, the Judge, Centus Nweze, the Apex Court voided and set aside the judgments of the Federal High Court and the Court of Appeal which affirmed Bashir Machina as the APC candidate.

Justice Nweze, held that hostile issues were involved in Machina’s matter that cannot be resolved through originating summons.

However, in a dissenting decision, Justices Adamu Jauro and Emmanuel Agim disagreed with the majority judgment and held that Machina was lawfully nominated because the primary election of May 28, 2022, was lawfully conducted in line with the provisions of the law.
