Florence Ita-Giwa, a former senator, says Ben Ayade, governor of Cross River, is threatened by her because she joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking with journalists in Lagos on Monday, Ita-Giwa said that her life is being threatened for exposing diversion of relief materials meant for the displaced people of Bakassi.

She alleged that some officials of the Cross River state government shared the relief materials and sold off some, instead of delivering them to the displaced persons.

Ita-Giwa said Ayade is “picking” on her because she had an “enormous electoral appeal”.

“From my observations, it appears to me that governor Ayade feels threatened by my joining the APC for whatever reason. I don’t recall any other former PDP stalwart in the state who decamped to the APC being so persecuted as I am,” she said.

“Could it be that governor Ayade is picking on me because of my gender or my enormous electoral appeal? I choose to believe the latter as I would like to believe that Ayade is not a misogynist, and he ought to know that I have never played gender politics.”
