“He was a source of inspiration not only to his peers but also the younger generation who looked up to him in their business pursuits.

“Despite his accomplishments in life, he never looked down on anyone regardless of age, social and economic differences.

“Olorogun Ibru’s memories will linger forever in the minds of Nigerians as he was well-known for his humanitarian gestures.

“We will sorely miss him”.
The former governor tasked the Ibru family to uphold the exemplary qualities of their late patriarch, adding that the late business icon will be remembered for creating job opportunities and wealth for the people.

While commiserating with the Urhobo nation, Kalu urged Delta State government to immortalize the late elder statesman by naming a landmark project in his name.
