An erstwhile presidential adviser, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, has declared that she will today, 7th April join the Cross River State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Mama Bakasi, as she is fondly called made this disclosure on Thursday in Calabar.
She said the reason for pitching her tent with the APC was because her contemporaries are in the party.
She told newsmen that,
“I have been idle in the PDP for over one year now. It is time for me to move on politically with my huge Bakassi supporters.
Besides, nearly all my contemporaries are in the APC. So, it is time for me to join them and work for the progress of the party at the state and national levels.”
Ita-Giwa represented the Cross River South Senatorial District on the platform of the All Peoples Party from May 1999 to May 2003.
After her exit from the senate in 2003, she joined the PDP, and became former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters.
Reacting to the development, the Acting state Chairman of APC, Mr. John Ochala, described her defection as a welcome development.
“It is a welcome development. Her crossing over to the APC is good. She should take her time to study and understand the party’s constitution.”
