Machina raises alarm over APC alleged forgery

The Yobe North senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bashir Machina, has raised an alarm about an alleged plan to forge his signature on a letter, stating that he has voluntarily withdrawn from the race to pave the way for Senate President Ahmad Lawan.


According to Machina’s campaign organisation, some elements within the party who are slaves to corruption and criminality are hell-bent on manipulating the candidacy of the senatorial district.


A statement signed by the organisation’s spokesperson, Husaini Isah, said such an act was unfortunate.


The statement read, “Information available to the Bashir Machina Campaign Organisation has it that some individuals have entered an unholy alliance with some compromised leaders to forge the withdrawal letter of Yobe North APC senatorial candidate, Hon Bashir Machina, even after communicating formally to the Party leadership affirming his stand not to step-down for anybody.


“It is sad and indeed unfortunate that after all the cries and alarm raised by the Campaign Organisation exposing a sinister plot to subvert the will of people of Yobe North, some mischievous elements are hell-bent and determined to carry out their criminal offence.


“It has eventually come to light in this untidy business of a forged withdrawal letter, that some compromised leaders have become slaves to corruption and criminality in Nigeria.”


Machina further reiterated his position that he will not step down and any letter of withdrawal received was not from him rather they were forged.
