The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday said it had recorgnised that the election of Abubakar Saraki as the Senate president was legitimate.

APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, gave the indication while fielding questions from State House correspondents in Abuja.

Odigie-Oyegun said that the election was one of the challenges the party had to contend with and the party had accepted Saraki as the Senate President.

“Of course, he has been duly elected by his colleagues, end of story.

“We have a reality, and we must live with it,” he said.

Odigie-Oyegun said that what happened on the choice of National Assembly leaders was within the APC family and the party’s officials were taking steps to address it within the family.

“People say they are going to court, which is their right; but as a party we are taking a look at everything and I assure you we are coming out stronger,” he said.
