Lawan, Akpabio In APC List Of Senatorial Candidates

Ahmad Lawan, President of the senate has been listed as the candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Yobe North senatorial district for the 2023 elections.

This came even as Bashir Machina who won the APC primary for the district, refused to step down for Lawan, who contested the APC presidential ticket. Shortly before the primary began, he was announced by APC national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, as the consensus candidate of the party. LEADERSHIP reports. Information Guide Nigeria

The consensus decision was rejected by several party stakeholders — including members of the national working committee (NWC) — and Bola Tinubu, former Lagos governor, went on to win the party’s ticket at the primary which was concluded on June 8.

Machina had insisted that he would not withdraw from the senatorial race since he got the votes of delegates in an unopposed election. jamb results

“I’m sure he did not plan to go back to the National Assembly. That is why he contested for the presidency and lost. This is democracy. The space is free. A certain period of time was given for people to want to contest. Timetables were set, guidelines were produced by the parties, and eventually, elections were held,” he said. In the signed list of candidates seen by The Cable yesterday, Lawan was listed as the party’s candidate for Yobe North.

Similarly, former Akwa Ibom State governor, Godswill Akpabio, was also reported to have made the list for Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial district even after former deputy inspector general of police, Mr Udom EKpoudom (rtd.), vowed not to relinquish the APC senatorial ticket he won on May 27, 2022 to Akpabio or anyone, no matter the pressure mounted on him. The chairman of the party in the state, Mr Stephen Ntuekpo, citing security infractions in the May 27, 2022 APC primary in the district, had said he was directed to conduct a fresh primary on June 8, 2022. The fresh primary produced Akpabio as the winner, having scored 478 votes out of 512 accredited delegates.
