Osinbajo Mourns Wigwe, Says Banking Icon Did Great Things Quietly

Osinbajo said Wigwe understood that service to man is service to God.

Former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday described the late Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Herbert Wigwe, as a man who did great things quietly.

Wigwe died along with his wife Chizoba and son, Chizi in a helicopter crash in the United States penultimate Friday.

Osinbajo, via a Facebook post, reminisced on an afternoon spent with Wigwe, the founder of Wigwe University, at his home on February 1.

“He shared the Wigwe University Vision, collaborations with Ivy League universities, immediate research objectives, the scholarship scheme for bright students unable to pay fees, and how the infrastructure around the University—especially the roads and power plant—would benefit the entire community.

“He also discussed various initiatives for giving young people across the country opportunities to excel, particularly in sustainability and climate action ideas,” Osinbajo recalled.

According to the ex-vice president, Wigwe understood that service to man is service to God.

“In Herbert’s typical style—thoughtful, progressive, compassionate—he quietly did great things,” Osinbajo said.
