"I received, with profound grief, the news of the passage to eternal glory of High Chief William Ibori, the Unugbrogodo of Ogharefe Oguedion elder brother to our national leader and mentor Chief James Onanefe Ibori.
Late High Chief William Ibori was an exemplary leader and father who was highly revered and respected across the State because of his love for peace and knack for conflict resolution. He was in deed a peace-loving father figure, a stabilising force and courageous bridge builder who devoted so much energy to not only bringing communities closer, but also ensuring rancor-free politicking by uniting politicians of divergent principles and proclivities.
He was in a class of his own as a cultural aficionado; a devotee of his people’s tradition, who gave so much of himself in serving as the Unugbrogodo of Ogharefe Oguedion.
He also acquitted himself as a highly principled elder state man and a High Ranking chief of Oghara kingdom, who remained committed to the cause for Delta state unity, growth and renaissance.
He will indeed be missed by we his family, the good people of the great Oghara Kingdom and Delta State."
May his soul rest in peace.
