APCChairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr John Oyegun, has said that his party has come to live with the reality that Senator Bukola Saraki is now the Senate President.

The APC Chairman, who was at the Defence House for the submission of the transition committee report told State House correspondents that his party would pass through the challenges of this time and come out stronger.

According to him, consultations are still going on and everything will soon be put in proper shape for the party to forge ahead.

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

Asked if the party has accepted Saraki as the President, he replied, “Of course, he has been duly elected by his colleagues, end of story. We have a reality and we must live with that reality.

“Nothing went wrong, there was just a lot of consultation to do. You can’t be in two places at the same time and so it was not possible for us to meet but we have been talking.”
