Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Hajiya Khadija Ibrahim, defeated her stepson, Mohammed Ibrahim, to clinch the All Progressives Congress ticket for Damaturu/Gulani/Gujba/Tarmuwa, Yobe federal constituency.

Professor Abba Gambo, the returning officer of the election, announced on Wednesday that Khadijah polled 1,295 votes to defeat Mohammed who scored only 15 votes.
