President-General of Agbara Improvement Union, AIU, Prof. S.W.E. Ibodje, said: “Great empires rise and fall, great kingdoms emerge and at the same time disappear so do most great men, they live and die, but great ideas do not die, but they are immortal, they live on and l think Olorogun Michael Ibru is a great idea and he will live on.”
