Obasanjo's ex-aide reveals plan to join APC
The former Senator was also quoted as saying she will defect to the Cross River State chapter of APC on Friday, April 7, 2017.
In a report by Punch Newspaper, Ita-Giwa, disclosed her decision to join the ruling party, APC, on Thursday, April 6, 2017 in Calabar, Cross River State.
In 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.”
In the same vein, the Acting state Chairman of APC, John Ochala, has said Ita-Giwa's defection was a welcome development.
Ita-Giwa was elected senator representing Cross River South Senatorial District under the platform of the All Peoples Party from May 1999 to May 2003. After leaving the senate in 2003, she joined the PDP, and became former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters.
