Senator Florence Ita-Giwa has volunteered to broker peace between the Federal Government and the militants in the Niger Delta.

The Senator also added that she will only be part of the negotiation if credible Nigerians come on-board.

Ita-Giwa said she opted to be part of the negotiating team, so peace can return to the troubled region.

She also said the resettlement of the people of Bakassi should also be part of the negotiations.

Adding that  “Recently, my attention has been drawn to a widespread report in the national dailies that I have agreed to serve in dialogue team with the Federal Government.”

The Senator also said “I was, however, contacted by a representative of the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta asking if I will be part of an initiative to find ways to end the ongoing attacks through dialogue towards restoring peace in the region.

“In my response, I said that I will consider serving if the Federal Government is willing to engage in discussions with credible Nigerians that have genuine interest and sympathy for the people of the region.”

Senator Florence Ita Giwa was reportedly married to the slain editor of Newswatch magazine, Dele Giwa for only 10 months.
