We’ll Immortalise Late Wigwe As Worthy Son Of Rivers – Fubara


February 28, (THEWILL) – Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, says his administration is determined to immortalise the former Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) of Access Holdings Plc, Dr. Herbert Wigwe, as a worthy son of the state.

THEWILL reports that Wigwe died in a helicopter crash alongside his wife, son, and a former chairman of the Nigeria Exchange Group, Abimboloa Ogunbanjo. The chopper with registration N130CZ crashed on February 9, 2024, in California, United States.

Speaking on Tuesday night at an event organised by the Port Harcourt City One Love Family, Fubara said the late Wigwe lived an impactful life, affecting society positively.

He described as double loss the death of the late banker, first as an in-law, and second as a trail-blazing son of the state, who exhibited the daring spirit known of Rivers people in pursuit of their dreams and became successful in his career with a reckonable social impact.

“I have come to understand something about life, those that God has favoured, blessed and truly cherished, He does not like them to stay too long on earth because he doesn’t want them to get corrupted.

“But the wicked ones, the cruel ones that you are praying for to die, will stay and they will not die. So, you should understand that what has happened to our brother and his family is truly painful to everyone,” he said.

The Governor, who said no matter the wealth acquired, in death, nothing is taken along, advised that people live a life of value and be at peace with those they encounter daily.

He enjoined members of the Port Harcourt One Love Family to uphold and continue with those social impact endeavours the late Herbert Wigwe devoted his time to.

Chairman of the Port Harcourt One Love Family, Ambassador Idaere Gogo Ogan, said the death of Wigwe has caused unbearable and lamentable pain.

Ogan, however, noted that in their grief, God provided strength and they were honouring a man who was a pillar and a potent force in Port Harcourt City and selflessly committed his time and resources to promote the state and offered enduring help to so many persons.
