May we know you, sir?
I am Chief Engr. Inye Cotton Charlie Kieni Amachree, Paramount Head/Chief of Kieni Polo/Compound (Kieni Group of Houses and its Communities of Buguma, Asalga Kalabari Kingdom of Rivers State, Nigeria.
HM, King Charlie Kieni Amachree is the first son of HM, King Kariboye -Abbi Amachree, Amachree IV, on whose stool I am the Polo Dabo, Paramount Head.
By Blood and Birth, I am a scion of King Amachree dynasty and my genealogy is as follows:
HM, King Amachree I, who was Amanyanabo of Kalabari from 1669 – 1757, gave birth to HM, King Amakoro Tyger Amachree II (1757 – 1782). Also King Amachree I gave birth to HM, King Karibo Amachree III (1782 – 1863). King Karibo Amachree III
gave birth to HM, King Kariboye-Abbi Amachree IV (1863 – 1900) who gave birth to
HM, King Charlie Kieni Amachree V (1900-1917). Then HM, King Cotton Charlie Amachree IX, who was Amanyanabo of Kalabari from (1972 – 1975) gave birth to me. I am his direct biological son.
What would you tell the Kalabari people about the raving disease of COVID-19?
CORONA VIRUS also known as COVID-19 is real and deadly and at present, no known cure. It has killed hundreds of thousands around the world, many more are still dying and still, many more are being infected almost every day in Nigeria and around the world.
The times are really quite challenging and my advice to Kalabari people is to strictly observe and obey very health-hygiene instructions by washing hands with soap regularly as many times possible in a day, sanitize hands, wear face mask, limit movement, maintain social distancing, avoid handshakes, avoid crowded gathering of any kind and importantly and above all, pray to God Almighty without season, for God’s divine protection, safety, provision and wellbeing of all of us.
Let us Stay safe and live well !
May I use this opportunity to appreciate and very specially thank the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for his commitment and efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
I wish to also very warmly and deeply thank our Governor, the Governor of Rivers State, H. E.
