The Chairman of the Governing Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, has described the defection of the erstwhile Presidential Adviser on National Assembly Matters, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as welcome development.
Ndoma-Egba made the remark in a press statement signed by his Special Assistant on Communication, Mrs. Clara Braide.
Ega said Giwa’s decision to join the APC came at a time when all people of goodwill were moving over to contribute their quota towards the development of the country, through the party.
He said: Your coming to the APC at this point in our fledgling democracy is a pointer to your sincere commitment to deploy your wealth of experience, with other democrats, for the betterment of your region and the nation as a whole.”
The board chairman expressed optimism that judging from Ita-Giwa’s antecedents as a team player, grassroots mobiliser and party faithful, the APC’s gradual push to take over the South-south was progressively becoming a reality.
