Senate President Ahmad Lawan’s name is not in the final list of contestants published by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Lawan and Bashir Machina have been locked in a long battle over the ticket of the ruling party for Yobe North which Lawan currently represents.

However, Godswill Akpabio, former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, made it to the list.

Earlier in the week, a Federal High Court in Abuja had ordered INEC to accept and publish Akpabio’s name as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Akwa Ibom North-West District for the 2023 elections.
