The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has issued warning to Bashir Machina over his comments on the party’s senatorial ticket in Yobe North.
It will be recalled that Machina, has remained adamant that he would not step down for Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
It should be noted that the Senate President had contested for the APC presidential ticket in May, but lost.
In a controversial manner, , Lawan, who currently represents Yobe north district, was listed as the APC senatorial candidate for the 2023 general election.
Adamu claimed that the Senate President participated in a primary for the district.
In an interview with BBC Hausa on Thursday, Adamu said: “If you don’t know how to set a trap for a thief, the thief will set the trap for you. Machina should be careful; his issue is getting out of hand. As far I am concerned as chairman, my party did not violate any law.
“Is there any law that says you cannot contest for a position after contesting for another one? No law prohibits anyone from doing so.”
