The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Adamu, has warned a party member from Yobe north, Bashir Machina, over his comments on the party’s senatorial ticket for the district.
The APC Yobe north senatorial ticket sparked controversy after Machina, who won the primary, insisted that he would not step down for the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
Recall that Lawan, in May, contested the APC presidential ticket, but lost.
Amid the controversy over the ticket, the senate president, who currently represents Yobe north district, was eventually listed as the APC senatorial candidate for the 2023 general election.
In his comment on how Lawan became listed as the party’s candidate, Adamu said the senate president participated in a primary for the district.
In an interview published by BBC Hausa on Thursday, Adamu said the issues affecting the party on primaries are not unusual, adding that they will be resolved.
Adamu said, “There is no leader who doesn’t receive complaints from the people he is leading and no leader would leave his position because of what the people say.”
