The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has insisted that the Chief Executive Officer of Access Holding, Herbert Wigwe, never believed in cutting corners to achieve business success.
He said this while reacting to the sudden demise of Wigwe, his wife, son, and others in a helicopter crash in California, USA.
Senator Akpabio, in a statement on Sunday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Eseme Eyiboh, described the death of Wigwe as a big loss to Nigeria and the Nigerian banking and finance industry.
The statement partly reads: “I received with shock the news of the passing of Wigwe and some of his family members in a helicopter crash in the USA. He was a man of integrity who never believed in cutting corners to achieve success in business.
“On behalf of the 10th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I offer our condolences to the Wigwe family, the Board and Management of Access Bank, the Governor of Rivers State and the President.”
Akpabio prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased.
