Access Holdings has announced that its board will soon make public the replacement for the late Group Chief Executive Officer, Herbert Wigwe, who died alongside his wife and son in a chopper crash in California, United States, on Friday.
Abubakar Jimoh, Chairman of Access Holding, disclosed this on Sunday in a statement signed by the company’s secretary, Sunday Ekwochi, while confirming the deaths of Wigwe, his wife, and his son in the unfortunate crash.
“In line with the company’s policy, the board will soon announce the appointment of an acting Group Chief Executive Officer even as we remain confident that the Access Group will build further on Dr Wigwe’s legacy of growth and operational excellence,” the statement reads in part.
The company said Wigwe was a driving force with a larger-than-life personality.
DAILY POST reports that Wigwe, his wife and son, and Abimbola Ogunbanjo died on Friday in a chopper crash in the US.
Wigwe’s death attracted tributes from all quarters, including President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
