The Yobe State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has sought to appease Bashir Machina following the Supreme Court judgement on Monday that removed him as the party’s Yobe North Senatorial candidate.

According to news reports, the party has formed a reconciliation committee in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to remove Machina and replace him with Senate President Ahmad Lawan as the APC candidate for Yobe North.

The committee will be led by Alhaji Mohammed Ala-Mai, the party’s Deputy Chairman in Yobe.

This was revealed by Yobe APC leader Mohammed Gadaka, aka Bill Gate, in an interview with The Nation shortly after the Supreme Court decision.

He stated that the conclusion of the legal process is an internal party matter, and that with Ahmad Lawan as the APC candidate for the election, the party is assured of victory on February 25, 2023.

He went on to say that the development is not cause for joy because it is directed at one of their own.

“Today’s judgement is in-house so we cannot be celebrating for having victory over one of our own. What has happened is within the Yobe State APC house. We are doing this for the interest of the party and not for an individual. When you have a good candidate like Ahmad Lawan, you will be sure that you are going to win the election and that is what party is all about and that is what Yobe APC stands for,” Gadaka said.
