Bashir Sheriff Machina said he is going to Court: “In the list sent to INEC, my name was found to be misrepresented. I don’t know whether it was erroneous, my name was not in the list of the names that was said to be presented today to INEC.

For the avoidance of doubt I remain the candidate duly elected of the APC Yobe North Zone C senatorial zone. I am the elected candidate; I did not withdraw for anybody and will not withdraw because as a matter of right that is the mandate given to me by members of our great party, the delegates.

So surreptitiously removing my name, I consider, is very undemocratic, illegal and of course human.
