I Won’t Step Down For Senator Ahmad Lawal – Machina

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

The winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yobe North Senatorial District primaries, Bashir Sheriff Machina, says he will not step down for the Senate President Ahmad Lawan.

He said he has been approached by some people on behalf of the Senate leader to step down, but that he would not.

He made this known in a letter he personally addressed to the National Chairman of his party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu on Monday 13th June, 2022 and made available to journalists.

Machina wrote, “I write to reaffirm my continual aspiration as the All Progressives Congress unequivocal senatorial candidate for Yobe North Senatorial district, following my clearance, participation and victory at the party primaries where I pulled 289 votes out of the 300 total votes cast.

“I write to reaffirm that I remain committed to the mandate which I won at the primaries, and I have not in any form or manner communicated otherwise.

“I have been informed of a purported malicious and mischievous report and insinuation to the contrary.

“Please, note I never at any time signed or communicated in any form any intent to vacate the mandate which was won at the primaries.

‘I’m totally committed to my mandate and I am working to deliver Yobe North Senatorial District to our great party the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Stonix News recalls that the Senate President had contested the APC presidential ticket and lost coming fourth behind the winner, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu.

He had been representing Yobe North senatorial district at the National Assembly for no fewer than 15 years.
