2023: I Won’t Appeal Judgement Barring Me From Senatorial Poll, Says Lawan

The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on Thursday said that he would not appeal the judgement delivered on Wednesday by the Federal High Court, Damaturu, in Yobe State concerning the Yobe North Senatorial District primary election.

The Senate president made this known on Thursday in a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Abuja.

Lawan said he has accepted the judgement of the court which disqualified his candidature and participation in the elections on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC. 

The statement, titled: “Court Judgement on Yobe North Senatorial District Candidacy,” said: “Yesterday, Wednesday, 28th September, 2022, the Federal High Court in Damaturu delivered judgement on the rightful candidate for Yobe North Senatorial District for the 2023 National Assembly elections.

“The said judgement disqualifies my candidature and therefore my participation in the elections.

“After due consultations with my political associates, supporters and well-wishers, I have decided not to appeal against the judgement. I accept the judgement.

“At this juncture, I deem it appropriate to thank His Excellency, Senator Ibrahim Gaidam for the leadership role in the APC political family in Yobe State. I also thank His Excellency, Governor Mai Mala Buni for the support and brotherhood.

“To my constituents, I thank you all for your  unflinching support, loyalty and unreserved commitment to the course of building our people and Yobe North Senatorial District and indeed Yobe State.

“I want to assure you that I will continue to serve you in my personal and any other capacity at all times.

“We journeyed together for a long time, and this journey will remain a lifelong journey. It has been a wonderful relationship and it can only get stronger. I am indebted to you all. Alhamdulillah.”
