Bashir Machina, the State Yobe North senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has dismissed reports of his resignation as a member of the APC in Yobe State.
Machina stated that he has not left the APC for another political party, stressing that nobody can force him out of the party.
While Reacting to reports of his resignation from APC Machina described the withdrawal letter as a product of mischief.
He said “I want to state unequivocally that the purported letter was forged. I did not at any time withdraw nor resign from my party.
“I was shocked when I discovered that some persons concocted plans to mislead the public, particularly my supporters into believing that I have withdrawn,” he said.
“Although we suspect that this letter may be another fake news and the hand work of enemies of peace, yet the APC’s National secretariat must speak up on it since it is carrying the official stamp of the secretariat.”
“I have not resigned nor withdrawn my candidature, I am in APC and have no intention to move to any party. I will (insha Allah) pursue my senatorial ambition on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
“I have already instructed my lawyers to review the fake letter and take necessary legal actions against the culprit(s).
