Senator Florence Ita- Giwa is indeed a woman of many parts. With her age filled with great experiences and accomplishments, it’s without a doubt that this woman has been there, seen and conquered.
Apart from her several affiliations in the political turf and business world, there is another place where she has never been found wanting and that is the social radar and her involvement with this section has always impacted significantly on her choice of celebration whenever she has a reason to celebrate.
The wedding ceremony of her daughter, Koko, as well as her 70th birthday ceremony is still very fresh in the memories of many due to the glamour and panache rolled into one to make these events carnival-like. Mama Bakassi, as the former Special Adviser to the former President Olusegun Obasanjo is called; some days back added another year to hit 72. She did not roll out drums to celebrate like she did when she was 70; rather she opted for a low key celebration.
But as one who is loved by many, the birthday dinner had all the trappings that made it a classy one. With her looks that suggests nothing close to her age and dressing styles that make her smart and beautiful, Florence played host to her good friends, associates and well-wishers who swarmed her Banana Island home, Lagos. Guests include: First Lady of Ghana, Rebecca Akufo-Ado, Lanre Ogunlesi, Tayo Ayeni, Willie Anumudu and Bola Shagaya to mention a few.
