I won't challenge the ruling that eliminated me as Yobe North senatorial candidate - Senate President Ahmad Lawan

According to Senate President Ahmad Lawan, he will not file an appeal against the court's decision designating Bashir Machina as the All Progressives Congress' Yobe North senate candidate.

In a statement issued on September 29, Lawan stated that he had accepted the court's decision disqualifying him from running for office and taking part in the election.

He claimed that he made the choice after carefully considering the opinions of his political allies, followers, and well-wishers.

The declaration said;

Yesterday, Wednesday, September 28, 2022, the Federal High Court in Damaturu delivered judgment on the rightful candidate for Yobe North Senatorial District for the 2023 National Assembly elections.

“The said judgement disqualifies my candidature and therefore my participation in the elections.

“After due consultations with my political associates, supporters and well-wishers, I have decided not to appeal against the judgement. I accept the judgement.

“I deem it appropriate to thank His Excellency, Senator Ibrahim Gaidam for the leadership role in the APC political family in Yobe State. I also thank His Excellency, Governor Mai Mala Buni for the support and brotherhood.

“To my constituents, I thank you all for your unflinching support, loyalty and unreserved commitment to the course of building our people and Yobe North Senatorial District and indeed Yobe State.

“I want to assure you that I will continue to serve you in my personal and any other capacity at all times.

“We journeyed together for a long time, and this journey will remain a life long journey. It has been a wonderful relationship and it can only get stronger. I am indebted to you all. Alhamdulillah.”
