Senate president Ahmad Lawan says he would not appeal the court’s judgement affirming Bashir Machina as the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Yobe North senatorial district.
Lawan disclosed this in a personally signed statement on Thursday, September 29.
According to the Senate president, he arrived at this decision after consultations with his political associates and supporters.
“After due consultations with my political associates, supporters and well-wishers, I have decided not to appeal against the judgement. I accept the judgement,” he announced.
Lawan appreciated his constituents for supporting his 23-year sojourn to the National Assembly.
Recall that Machina, Lawan’s placeholder, had refused to step down for the Senate president after his failed attempt at the APC presidential ticket.
