The All Progressives Congress has accepted the election of Senator Bukola Saraki as the Senate President.
The party had previously rejected Saraki’s victory after he schemed his way to a cunning victory, but the party’s national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has said the party has accepted him.
Odigie-Oyegun said the reality was that Saraki’s colleagues had duly elected him and the party was ready to live with the reality.
The party had planned for Senator Ahmed Lawan to take up the mantle of Senate President.
When asked specifically whether the party would accept Saraki as the President of the Senate, Odigie-Oyegun said: “Of course! He has been duly elected by his colleagues. We have a reality and we must live with it.”
