BEVERLY HILLS, September 08, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has extended sincere condolences to the family of Olorogun Michael Ibru, who passed away on Tuesday at the age of 85. He prayed for God Almighty to grant the soul of the departed eternal rest.

A statement issued on Wednesday by the President's Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, equally commiserated with the Government and people of Delta State and the Urhobos in particular on the passage of their illustrious son and patriarch of the Ibru family.

He joined them in mourning an accomplished businessman whose edifying role in the corporate world and private sector in Nigeria would continue to inspire generations to come.

Buhari was optimistic that Michael Ibru will be long remembered for his hardwork and dedication to entrepreneurship, which opened doors of opportunities to many Nigerians and associates who came in contact with his investments in the banking, aviation, tourism and manufacturing sectors.

He urged members of his family and all who mourn Olorogun Ibru to honour his memory by constantly upholding the values of selfless-service, inter-ethnic harmony, knowledge and perseverance, which he passionately promoted through his successful career in the private sector.
