The Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu has ordered the All Progressives Congress and the Independent National Electoral Commission to recognise Bashir Machina as Yobe North senatorial candidate of the party.

The presiding judge, Justice Fadima Murtala Aminu, nullified the parallel primary election that produced the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, on June 9, 2022.

The judge also ordered the APC to forward the name of Machina to INEC as the authentic winner of the primary held in May.
