SocialMediaTrends: Nigerians praise judiciary for affirming Bashir Machina senatorial candidate



Nigerians have taken to social media to praise the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja for affirming Bashir Machina as the authentic candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Yobe North Senatorial District.

The court maintained the judgment of the Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State which held that the President of the senate Ahmad Lawan, is not the APC candidate for Yobe North Senatorial District in next year’s election into the National Assembly.

Ripples Nigeria earlier reported that INEC denied recognizing Senate Lawan as the senatorial candidate of the APC and that he resorted to the judiciary to claim his mandate.

Nigerians expressed satisfaction moreover, as the appellant (APC) was ordered to pay the sum of N1 million to the 1st respondent (Bashir Sheriff) as cost.
