Supreme Court declares Lawan Yobe North senatorial candidate

Lawan and Machina




In the lead majority judgment, Justice Centus Nweze held that Lawan’s major challenger, Bashir Machina was wrong to have commenced his suit at the trial court via a writ of summons in view of his allegations that the APC acted fraudulently in transmitting Lawan’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as it’s candidate.

Justice Nweze held the earlier decisions of the Federal High Court in Yobe and the subsequent one Court of Appeal in Abuja, affirming Machina as the APC candidate for Yobe North “were perverse and must be set aside.”
