It should be recalled that Lawan had contested for the APC presidential ticket in May, but lost.

Lawan has however been listed as the APC senatorial candidate for the 2023 general election.

Meanwhile, Adamu has insisted that the Senate President participated in a primary for the district.

In an interview with BBC Hausa on Thursday, June 23, the APC Chairman said;

If you don’t know how to set a trap for a thief, the thief will set the trap for you. Machina should be careful; his issue is getting out of hand. As far I am concerned as chairman, my party did not violate any law.

Is there any law that says you cannot contest for a position after contesting for another one? No law prohibits anyone from doing so.
