How I first met late Hebert Wigwe, assisted him on his wedding – Peter Obi

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, has expressed deep pain over the death of Hebert Wigwe.


Abujapress reports that Wigwe, the late Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings, died in helicopter crash on Friday.


In a post on his verified X handle, on Sunday, Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, said he first met Wigwe in his early days where he was preparing for his traditional wedding.


He said : “I’m deeply saddened by the tragic news of the passing of my dear friend, Mr. Herbert Wigwe, CEO of Access Holdings, along with his wife and son, and another close friend, Abimbola Ogunbanjo, former group chairman of NGX Group.


This loss is profoundly felt across the nation. I first met Herbert during his early days, on the brink of starting his marital journey. I vividly remember assisting him in preparing for his traditional wedding and being there for the ceremony with his wife, Chizoba, from Achina,


Anambra State. Since then, I’ve maintained a connection to his endeavors in my own modest ways. Herbert, a determined and forward-thinking individual, led Access Bank to new heights following his brother Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede.


His noteworthy contributions extended beyond the professional realm, with commendable philanthropic efforts in health and education, exemplified by the establishment of Wigwe University, showcasing his deep commitment to education as a driver of development.


The loss of such an exceptional individual reminds us of life’s fleeting nature, encouraging us to live with a purpose that contributes to the betterment of humanity. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with Herbert, his beloved wife, his son, and all those who lost their lives in the tragic plane crash. May God grant them eternal rest and provide strength to Herbert’s family, Access Holdings, and all of us mourning this irreplaceable loss.”
