The Operemor people, according to him, are the second primary owners of King Robert Ebizimor. The reason Is because the late music king’s mother is an Operemor indigene from the Okodizimor family unit in Ojobo. Madam Ziwuru, his mother was Pa. Adamagu Zipude’s daughter.

To him, King Robert Ebizimor fought for the emancipation of the Ijaw people with his music the same way Isaac Adaka Boro fought with his gun, the same way J.P. Clark fought with his literary pen, the same way Tompolo is doing, the same way all the genuine social crusaders are doing currently to bring the Ijaw nation to the limelight.

Finally, Brisibe says that “the Ijaw nation should take advantage of occasions like this to celebrate and promote our rich culture, enlighten ourselves, take strategic decisions on the way forward for our people”.
