Nigeria: Dangote Dedicates Refinery Road to Herbert Wigwe

The 120-kilometre route that leads to billionaire industrialist Aliko Dangote’s refinery in Lagos is dedicated in honour of the late Herbert Wigwe, the Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings, for his outstanding contributions to the project.

The statement was made on Monday at a special celebration dubbed “Celebrating Herbert Wigwe – A Professional Legacy” that was held in the late banker’s honour at the Eko Hotel in Lagos.

Dangote honoured the departed by showcasing Wigwe’s commitment and knowledge.

“To immortalise my beloved friend, my brother, and mentee, I’ve actually decided to name our major refinery and petrochemical road-out of the 120km road, the biggest road will now be named Herbert Wigwe,” Dangote said.

The businessman described him as a dependable mentee who was willing to go the extra mile to support him, his business, and his family.

“I am proud to name it after him, my devoted friend, mentee, and supporter. I will forever cherish the warmth of his friendship”, Dangote said.

On February 9, Wigwe, his wife, Doreen; son Chizi; and a former Group Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group, Abimbola Ogunbanjo, died in a helicopter crash that occurred near a border town between California and Nevada in the United States.
