Bashir Sheriff Machina who is APC senatorial candidate for Yobe North has hailed the Federal High Court judgment that declared him as the authentic senatorial candidate of the APC describing it as a victory for justice.
Machina, who reacted to the surprising development via his media aide, Husaini Mohammed Isa in a statement made available to newsmen, also called on all his supporters and people of Yobe North to remain calm and law-abiding.
The APC chieftain, who declared the judgement as ‘no victor, no vanquished’, equally called for immediate reconciliation among the two groups that exist within the party in Yobe North.
‘I welcome the decision of the Judge of the Federal High Court, Damaturu. It is a victory that stands for justice. It is now time to set aside our differences and close ranks for the impending battle, the next war we must wage is the war for APC’s victory in the coming 2023 general elections’, he said.
Africa Daily News, New York reports that the senatorial candidate appreciated all his supporters for their fervent prayers and unflinching support saying, he will work hard if eventually elected as Senator to touch the lives of the constituents in many very positive ways.
Machina had last month come out to openly deny and debunk a letter which had been purportedly authored by him while he had been indicating his withdrawal from the senatorial contest and then his subsequent resignation from the APC.
