Former Vice President Yemi  Osinbajo has revealed what the recently deceased Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings, plc, Herbert Wigwe, discussed with him when they met on  1 February  of this year.

Wigwe alongside his wife, Chizoba, son, Chizi and three others died 0n 9 February in a helicopter crash in the United States of America.

But writing on his Facebook page on Saturday, Osinbajo said Wigwe was a man that quietly did great things.

He wrote: “Herbert and I spent the afternoon together in our home on Thursday, February 1st. He shared the Wigwe University Vision, collaborations with Ivy League universities, immediate research objectives, the scholarship scheme for bright students unable to pay fees, and how the infrastructure around the University—especially the roads and power plant—would benefit the entire community. He also discussed various initiatives for giving young people across the country opportunities to excel, particularly in sustainability and climate action ideas.

“In Herbert’s typical style—thoughtful, progressive, compassionate—he quietly did great things. He was a profoundly deep individual who understood that service to man is service to God. As is the way of mortals, he leaves much undone, but the seed that keeps the forests growing has been planted. All his legacies will grow, and his dreams will become reality.

“As we mourn the heart-wrenching passing of Herbert, Chizoba, and Chizi Wigwe, we pray for the inexplicable comfort that only God can give to the Wigwe and Nwuba families, and to their friends and loved ones everywhere”.
