Usman Ododo, governor of Kogi state, has paid tribute to Herbert Wigwe, the group chief executive officer (GCEO) of Access Holdings Plc.

On Saturday, around 7am Nigerian time, Wigwe, his wife, son and Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the former group chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), were involved in a helicopter crash in the United States.

The Kogi governor in a statement on Monday by Ismaila Isah, his media aide, described Wigwe as “a humble and hardworking businessman”.

“The late Herbert Wigwe was an exceptional individual whose impact transcended the banking industry and his generation,” the statement reads.


“He was a humble and hardworking businessman who meant so well for the transformation of Nigeria and I am deeply saddened by his painful exit.

“As a government and people, our thoughts are with the Wigwe family who suffered far too many losses in one accident and all his colleagues at Access Holdings in this trying moment.

“Our thoughts are also with the government and people of Rivers State and my brother, His Excellency, Governor Siminalaye Fubara for the irreparable loss of one of Nigeria’s most impactful businessmen, investor and a pathfinder for the younger generation. Nigeria and indeed humanity lost a colossus in Herbert Wigwe.”
