Mr Abubakar’s aide, Mr Paul Ibe, revealed this in a tweet this morning.
“H.E. @atiku has resigned from the All Progressives Congress,” the tweet read.
Mr Abubakar contested against the president, Muhammed Buhari alongside three others for the ticket of the APC in 2014.
He lost out in the primary but collapsed his structure to support the president at the 2015 presidential campaign.
Atiku was the Vice to former President Olusegun Obasanjo when Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999.
