Home Judiciary Court Grants Machina’s Application For Substituted Service On Ahmad Lawan

Court Grants Machina’s Application For Substituted Service On Ahmad Lawan

Justice Fadimatu Mohammed of Federal High Court, Damaturu, Yobe State, on Thursday granted an application for an order of substituted service of court processes on the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, brought by the winner of Yobe North All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial primary election, Hon. Bashir Sheriff Machina.

The application was granted after one of the lead counsels to Machina, Nureini Jimoh (SAN), moved the application that since the case was filed in the court on 22nd June 2022, the bailiffs found it difficult to serve the writ of summons to the Senate President who is the second defendant in the case.

Bashir Machina had, in a suit filed on the 22nd of June 2022, asked the Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu to declare him the authentic senatorial candidate of the APC for Yobe North and order the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognize him as such.

The case was adjourned to 15th August 2022 to ensure that the parties have been properly served.

Bashir Shariff Machina has been in a tussle with Lawan over the Yobe North Senatorial ticket.
