The late CEO of Access Holdings, Roosevelt Herbert Wigwe, once shared with Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu, a significant remark.
Sadly, Wigwe, who was also the Co-founder of Access Bank and founder of Wigwe University, tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash along with his wife, Chizoba, son, and lawyer, Abimbola Ogunbanjo.
The crash occurred on Friday near the border of Nevada and California while the chopper was en route to Las Vegas.
Regrettably, there were no survivors, as confirmed by the US government on Saturday morning.
“The death of Roosevelt Herbert Wigwe is a terrible blow for Nigeria and Africa’s banking industry,” Onanuga wrote on X.
“Wigwe had a big vision to make Access Holdings Africa’s biggest, with all the unquenchable thirst for acquisitions.
“He also made a mark in his community, by building a university, that he once told me will make a difference by focusing on entrepreneurship. He has now left all to return to his maker.
“May his soul rest in perfect peace. May the souls of his wife Chizoba, son and lawyer Abimbola Ogunbanjo, who died in the same ghastly copter crash in California desert also rest in peace.”
