The incursion into the South South area of the country by the All Progressives Congress, APC, is yielding more fruit as Senator Florence Ita-Giwa has announced her defection to the party.
Ita-Giwa made the announcement on Thursday in Calabar.
The defection will happen on Friday in Cross River State.
Ita-Giwa is of the Peoples Democratic Party and a former Special Adviser to President Olusegun Obasanjo on National Assembly Matters.
Her words: “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 Cross River South Senatorial District at the National Assembly from 1999 to 2003.
She became a senator on the platform of the All Peoples Party, APP.
She defected to the PDP and was appointed special adviser by Obasanjo.
