Rivers state government to immortalise Wigwe

The Rivers State Government has disclosed plan to immortalise the late group chief executive officer of Access Holdings, Herbert Wigwe who died in a plane crash near the Nevada-California border on February 9,2024 in United States of America (USA) alongside his wife and son

Penpushing reports that Governor Siminalayi Fubara made this known while paying tribute to the late banker on Tuesday evening at a night of tributes organised by the Port Harcourt City One Love Family, to reflect, celebrate and eulogise the life of the deceased.

The Governor in a statement by his spokesperson Boniface Onyedi noted that the late banking guru lived an impactful life, affecting society positively adding that  his administration is determined to immortalise him as a worthy son of the state

Penpushing further reports that the statement said Wigwe’s death was a double loss, first as an in-law, and second as a trail-blazing son of the state who exhibited a daring spirit known of Rivers people in pursuit of their dreams and became successful in his career with reckonable social impact.

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

“But the wicked ones, the cruel, that you are praying 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. But…”, he added

Penpushing also reports that the Governor advised that people should live a life of value, and be at peace with people they encounter daily, and enjoined members of the Port Harcourt One Love Family to uphold and continue with those social impact endeavours that the deceased devoted his time to.

Meanwhile, it is recalled that the Eurocopter EC 130, which carried Wigwe, his wife, son and five others, crashed on its way to Las Vegas, killing all the people onboard.
