National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu says Senate President, Ahmed Lawan participated in the Yobe North Senatorial Primary.

Adamu made this known on Monday when he led party members to present the Ekiti State governor-elect, Biodun Oyebanji, to President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was responding to claims by Bashir Machina who said he is the senatorial candidate for the senatorial district.

Asked how Lawan emerged senatorial candidate, Adamu said: “Don’t get yourself in the court of law. Is it that you were told or they are saying it?

“I don’t have time for negativities. I don’t just have time for that. If you face me with positives, I have time for all of that. I will stand here and answer all of your questions.

“I cannot respond to every speculation, particularly when they are negative, especially when they are by mischief-makers.

“Is there any law that says when you contest an election and lost, you shouldn’t contest another one?”

“Go and find out from the person who is responsible for organising the primary. I have done my bit.

“I do know, in my honour, that he did participate within the timeline.”
