The frosty relationship between former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and the All Progrressive Congress is about to get worse.

The party might apply sanctions against the former vice-president over his alleged disparaging utterances.

The Organising Secretary of the Adamawa State chapter of the APC, Ahmed Lawan, who disclosed this, said, "Plans by the state working committee to wade into the issue have been delayed by the participation of some members of the state exco, who traveled to Saudi Arabia to observe the hajj.

“Some of our members, including the chairman of the APC in the state, are on hajj; we are only waiting for them to return and we are going to discuss this issue. Definitely, our meeting is going to dwell on Atiku, perhaps we may form a committee to reach out to the former vice-president to ask him what his grievances are. Definitely, if there’s anything we can do as a party at the state level, we will do,” Lawan said.

The party, according to him, has ways of dealing with any of its members, and if it finds sufficient grounds, especially with the rumours associated with the former vice-president, the party will not hesitate to take action.

While dismissing reported cracks within the party, he said the party is however worried by recent utterances credited to the former vice-president, including his remarks that the party abandoned him.
