Bashir Machina has been declared as the authentic candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Yobe North Senatorial seat election.
The ruling was given by the Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State.
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 candidate.
Aminu in the ruling held that Machina duly won the APC primary held on 28th May 2022 for the position.
The judge further described the primary election which produced Senate President Ahmad Lawan as “phantom.”
