Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar is concerned about the deepening crisis in the All Progressives Congress (APC), reports say.

Atiku, on Monday, July 18, 2016, held a closed door meeting with leaders of the APC to address the issue, according to Daily Trust.

“You know it very well that Atiku had not been at the secretariat for a very long time. He was here partly to see how the APC will rise up and find solution to the protracted misunderstanding between the Presidency and the National Assembly,” a source said.

“Indeed, he was worried by the happenings in the Senate, occasioned by the trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, as well as the last week’s untoward happenings in the Senate. This is all I can say,” the source added.

“To greater extent, the APC is still living like an opposition instead of a ruling party, there is deepening crisis and serious leaders must talk, Nigerians are complaining,” Atiku said according to another source.

“The fight between Senator Dino Melaye and Senator Remi Tinubu is a serious minus to the APC as a party, we can’t continue living in denial that the APC house is not in order and Nigerians are watching,” he added.
