The remains of Mrs Alice Chindah, the mother of a frontline Rivers politician and Ex Commissioner for Agriculture, Chief Emmanuel Chindah has been laid to rest in Oduoha-Ogbakiri of Emohua Local Government Area, Rivers State.
In a solemn yet classic setting, Chief Emma and family organized a befitting burial November 6, 2021 for his 79-yr old mother who passed on April 11, 2021 in University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH), Rivers State.
While delivering a sermon at the funeral mass at St. Peter’s Catholic Church Rumuoro Ogbakiri, the Parish Priest, Philip Kelechi Amadi extolled the conduct of “Miss” in her service to God and humanity while she lived and charged the congregants to emulate Mama’s ways and positively touch the lives of those around them.
