Senator Florence Ita-Giwa has officially dumped the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former presidential adviser on National Assembly matters to President Muhammadu Buhari who was welcomed by APC bigwigs including Senator Bassey Otu said that she is moving to a party where she can make impact alongside her contemporaries.

“I feel that with my status and political standing in Cross River, it is out of place to jump from one faction to another. It is too small… so I need a strong platform devoid of sheer impunity, selfish interests, where I will meet my contemporaries. I needed a platform of very mature, serious, committed people, so I have chosen that platform which is APC,” Mma Giwa as she is fondly called said at an event in Bakassi to announce her defection.

She also announced her plans to jolt the APC in the state from slumber and assured she is not defecting to struggle leadership with other members.

“I have not come here to struggle for any seat with you people” she said, adding that; “I have been given appropriate seat to sit down.

“I am not a quiet politician. APC has been too quiet. Now that I am in APC, that silence, quietness will stop.”

She later proceeded to officially register at her ward.

CrossRiverWatch had earlier reported that Ita-Giwa who moved from the defunct All Peoples Party to the PDP in 2003 had said she has been “idle” in the PDP for over a year now.

Political watchers say her defection may open the door for other defections with some of the appointees of Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade making moves to join the APC since last year.

  • Seriously? These politicians really think Nigerians are fools. Three different political parties speaks volumes of who she really is. What difference has she really made to the lives of ordinary Cross Riverians? Wasn’t she in PDP when Bakassi was given to Cameroon? She is nothing but a political prostitute, and the people who rally around her are just ignorant and short sighted. I weep for my country Nigeria
