Senator Florence Ita-Giwa says she defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) because Cross River state was the first state President Muhammadu Buhari visited as a president.

The former Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters to former President Olusegun Obasanjo said she had explained her reason for leaving the People Democratic Party (PDP) to the state Governor, Ben Ayade.

She stated this at a press conference held in Lagos to clear herself of the allegation of diverting relief materials meant for displaced people of Bakassi.

”When Buhari became President, Cross Rivers was the first State that he visited and in his euphoria at that kind of exposure that Buhari came to the State, the first before any other State, he (Ayade) said I should support Buhari.

”Cross Rivers has never had it so good in terms of federal appointments and that is one of the reasons why I defected to APC.

”I told the governor that I cannot show appreciation from outside, and for me to show proper appreciation, I had to go and join them and I did. I didn’t go to APC with any envelop.

”The only thing I took to Buhari was the report of the resettlement that we had given ex- President Goodluck Jonathan that was not acted upon. I pleaded with Buhari to implement the report and I know that he would do it,” she said.
