Former Presidential adviser, Florence Ita-Giwa has said she would defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday.

Ita-Giwa disclosed this on Thursday in Calabar.

She said, “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.”

Acting state Chairman of APC, Mr. John Ochala, said her defection was a welcome development.

“It is a welcome development,” Ochala said. “Her crossing over to the APC is good. She should take her time to study and understand the party’s constitution.”

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.
