Senate President Ahmed Lawan

The President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmed Lawan has accepted the verdict of a Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State on the rightful candidate for Yobe North Senatorial District for the 2023 National Assembly elections.

Lawan noted that he decided not to appeal against the judgement after due consultations with his political associates, supporters and well-wishers, saying “I have accepted the judgement.”

Lawan made this known in a statement issued on his verified Twitter handle on Thursday.

The statement reads: “Yesterday, Wednesday, 28th September, 2022, the Federal High Court in Damaturu delivered judgement 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.

“At this juncture, 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.”

The Senate President, however, assured that he would continue to serve the country and his community in personal and any other capacity at all times.

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

NaijaNewsNow had reported that the Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State Capital declared Bashir Sheriff Machina as APC’s authentic senatorial candidate for Yobe North in the coming 2023 National Assembly elections and directed INEC to accept and publish his name accordingly.
