Amid reports of riots across the country, Senator Florence Ita Giwa has appealed to the residents of Calabar, Cross River to stop the ‘looting and burning’, which are mostly directed at politicians in the state.
On Sunday October 25, a video of the former presidential aide started trending on Twitter. In the viral clip, Ita-Giwa can be seen kneeling and pleading asking for forgiveness from the youths in her local dialect, saying the country and ‘big people’ have failed them including herself.
It was gathered last week Wednesday that the #EndSARS protesters stood against some hoodlums who wanted to destruct the peaceful protest in Calabar.
According to Ita-Giwa, the day she knelt down was when she was installed “Eka Iban”, a traditional title meaning women leader. She continued saying she’s kneeling today again to tender her apology. She also acknowledged their suffering, while pleading that the looting and burning should stop.
Towards the end of the clip, as the former Senator for the Cross River South Senatorial District, became tearful, the people surrounding her consoled her saying, “Queen please don’t cry”.
Watch the video below.
