Sen. Ita-Giwa’s denial of the insinuation was made when she visited the National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun at the party secretariat in Abuja following her recent defection to the party.

She said, “I feel very comfortable identifying with the calibre of people in the APC. I will like to correct the erroneous notion that I decamped or they call it defection because there is no party to defect from. I personally stopped attending meetings, in the last two years, just because of the impunity there. It is on record that in 2015, I had gone to the presidential candidate to say that I was leaving the party, so I was potentially one of the politicians that were forcefully driven out of the party.”
