‘My love life is that I have solid friends around me’
SENATOR (Princess) Florence Ita-Giwa does not need any introduction! The formidable woman has been at the forefront of Nigeria’s socio-political culture for decades now. Apart from being a politician, she is also a voice of the injustice of Bakassi, a philanthropist and a well liked socialite.
On Thursday, February 19, 2015, the popular Senator Florence Ita-Giwa fondly called “Mma Bakassi” marked her 69th birthday with a private party hosted by Captain Akinbo Johnson and wife at their residence in Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos.
The private birthday party which kicked off at about 9:30pm and was brought to a close at about 2am, was well attended by very close friends and family members including, Socialite Abbah Folawiyo, Nkiru Anumudu, former governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, her beautiful daughter, Koko and hubby Chimaobi Obioha, music artiste and wife, 2Baba and Annie Idibia, Olu Maintain among others. The birthday party was said to be a family get together.
The celebrant was dressed in a black sleeveless sequenced jumpsuit with a pair of gold and black heel sandals with a chocolate brown glittering purse to suit her ageless face and body.
In a speech by the celebrant, she expressed her love for taking pictures every year not because she has kept it as an assignment but she wants every lady out there to know that keeping fit and beautiful is not all about age or how young you are but to let them know that they can always look beautiful even as they get older. She also added saying, “My love life is that I have solid friends around me”.
The highlight of the night was the cutting of her birthday cakes which was accompanied by a birthday song, by ex-governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke.
