Senate President Ahmad Lawan who has been locked in a legal tussle over who the rightful senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Yobe north senatorial district is, has said that he accepts a court judgement recognising Bashir Machina as the authentic candidate.

Lawan said in a statement which he personally signed and released on Thursday, “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 concluded, “I want to assure you that I will continue to serve you in my personal and any other capacity at all times.”

With this statement, it is believed INEC will recognise Michina as the Senatorial candidate for Yobe North.
