Bashir Machina has commended the Federal High Court for declaring him as the authentic senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Yobe North.

Recall that the court declared Machina as the authentic candidate against the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan who is seeking the same ticket under the ruling party.

The court presided over by Justice Fadima Murtala Aminu on Wednesday also ordered the APC and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognise Machina as the candidate for Yobe North senatorial district.

Aminu in the ruling held that Machina duly won the APC primary held on 28th May 2022 for the position.
