How Tony Elumelu Reacted to the Death of Herbert Wigwe and Ogunbanjo

Tony Elumelu, Chairman of the United Bank for Africa (UBA), paid respect to Herbert Wigwe, the late CEO of Access Holdings Plc, and Bimbo Ogunbanjo, the former group chairman of the Nigerian Exchange Group Plc.

Wigwe and Ogunbanjo died in a helicopter crash in the United States over the weekend, which Elumelu described as “terribly sad and distressing”.

“Tribute to Great Lights- True Patriots,” he captioned the post shared on his X platform.

“The news of Herbert Wigwe’s and Bimbo Ogunbanjo’s untimely passing is terribly sad and distressing. Nigeria, indeed Africa, has lost two of our brightest minds. I admired them both and we all shared the desire to drive Nigeria’s transformation,” he wrote.

“Herbert was an exceptional talent, committed to advancing the banking and financial sector in Nigeria, with Access Holdings. Likewise, Bimbo’s tenure as Group chairman of the NGX group was distinguished by excellence.

“Both will be sorely missed by all. Their leadership and entrepreneurial drive will continue to serve as shining examples to millions of our young people.

“May Bimbo, Herbert, his dear wife, Chizoba, and his son, Chizi, rest in perfect peace. May God give their immediate families strength and grace in this difficult time.”
