The Patriots Alliance do heartily commend Rivers People for the warm show of solidarity bestowed on former Governor, the Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi yesterday, as he made an unannounced appearance at the dedication of St. Vincent De Paul's Catholic Church' new Parish building.

We also congratulate the ministers, leaders, members of the Catholic Church situated at Elechi beach area of Diobu, for the warm reception that they gave to Amaechi and Rivers people at large during the sacramental service.

We also hail the sagacious exhortation of the Most Reverend Camillus Etukudoh to Rivers people, where he beautifully correlated the travails of John the Baptist with contemporary attempts by some people to extinguish the legacies of others by way of name calling et al. According to the Man of God, King Herod beheaded John on the request of his daughter in order to put an end to his movement, but today, John the Baptist's name is everywhere.

Like all great events, the homecoming of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi did not come without itchy corners. The city of Port Harcourt was brought to a standstill as vehicular and human traffic escalated due to the inflow of lovers of Amaechi from different parts of Nigeria. On this note, we sympathise with Rivers people for the unavoidable inconveniences that they had to face as a result of this triumphal visit.

Finally, the joy and flurry of former Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi's visit to Port Harcourt, is a timely reminder of the fact that no matter the efforts of men, the moon cannot be put to oblivion by mischievous hands.
