The Chairman, Governing Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba SAN, has welcomed Senator Florence Ita-Giwa who defected from the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) for APC recently.
Senator Egba in a statement said Ita-Giwa’s decision shows her commitment to deploy her wealth of experience in driving Nigeria forward.
“Your coming to the APC at this point in our fledgling democracy is a pointer to your sincere commitment to deploy your wealth of experience, with other democrats, for the betterment of your Region and the Nation as a whole,” Ndoma said in a statement signed and issued by the Special Assistant on communication in his office, Clara Braide.
He expressed optimism that her antecedents as a team player, grassroots mobilizer and party faithful, will aid the APC’s gradual push to take over the South-South which he said is progressively becoming a reality.
“We all are aware of the interesting political story of this great woman of note and how she has been able to galvanize the people of her community to pursue a course that they hold dear in a non-political and non-military way.
“The party can benefit from her immense wealth of experience and tap into her political structure for our parties greater good. She is a good catch. This move is a further endorsement for President Mohammadu Buhari”, the statement read.
The former adviser on national assembly matters to President Olusegun Obasanjo had led about 1,000 supporters on Friday to the APC at her hometown in Bakassi local government area.
