Lawan Contested Yobe North Senatorial Primary, Says Adamu

Adamu, Lawan

The All-Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu on Monday disclosed that the Senate President Ahmad Lawan participated in Yobe North Senatorial Primary within the timeline.

Lawan was one of the 23 APC presidential aspirants who contested the June 8 Presidential Primary and lost to the eventual winner, Ahmed Tinubu.

It had appeared that the Senate President would be in a limbo as the Yobe North Senatorial District primary had earlier been conducted and Bashir Machina had emerged as the candidate of the party.

All entreaties to Machina to appeal to him to step down for Lawan had fallen on deaf ears as he vehemently said that he would not step down for Lawan and recently wrote the party’s chairman, Abdullahi, to reiterate his decision.

However, in a shocking twist, the name of Machina, was recently replaced with that of the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, as seen on the list of Yobe senatorial candidates sent from the party to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) triggering a round of controversy.

Meanwhile, Adamu on Monday queried whether there is any law that says when you contest an election and lost, you shouldn’t contest another one.

He spoke when he led party members to present the Ekiti State governor-elect, Biodun Oyebanji, to President Muhammadu Buhari, noting that he could not be responding to all speculations around issues concerning the party.

He said, “Don’t get yourself in the court of law. Is it that you were told of it or they are saying it?

“I don’t have time for negativities. I don’t just have time for that. If you face me with positives, I have time for all of that. I will stand here and answer all of your questions.

“I cannot respond to every speculation, particularly when they are negative, especially when they are by mischief-makers.

“Is there any law that says when you contest an election and lost, you shouldn’t contest another one?”

“Go and find out from the person who is responsible for organising the primary. I have done my bit.

“I do know, in my honour, that he did participate within the timeline.”
