Florence Ita-Giwa’s New Passion


Over the years, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa has been in the forefront of re-writing the story of the people of Bakassi in Cross-River State.

The former Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters to former President Olusegun Obasanjo has used her wealth, influence and power to put smiles on the faces of countless children who would not have tasted Western education.

This 70-year-old Amazon and woman of substance has, however, found a new passion: she is preaching against rape.

As gathered, the ageless beauty and grandmother has begun to lend her voice to the campaign against rape via Instagram. In one of her posts, she wrote that “Our girls are silently dying inside. A lot of women live with this horrible experience for the rest of their lives and it keeps hunting them in their sleep and affects them psychologically. Let’s join hands and end this together. Say No To Rape!”

If the news at the disposal of Spy Glass is anything to go by, Ita-Giwa, who is known for her passion for humanity, may soon take her war against rape to the public, just like some of her other humane gestures.
