Austin Tam-George Mourns Herbert Wigwe

The death of Herbert Wigwe, the CEO of Access Holdings, is a loss beyond description. I join the Rivers State Government, the Wigwe family, the Ogunbanjo family, and others to mourn this most regrettable and tragic incident.

I first met Herbert in 2017 during the “Rivers State @ 50” celebrations. I was the Commissioner for Information in the Rivers State Government, and Herbert was the Chairman of the Fundraising Committee for the months-long event.

Herbert’s boundless energy, passion, and ability to bring people together was remarkable.

His dynamic personality and deep roots in the business and investment community contributed immensely to the success of the historic event.

The passing of Herbert’s wife and son in the tragic incident adds to the infinite sadness that we all feel.

May the souls of the departed rest in peace.


– Dr Austin Tam-George,
Former Commissioner for Information, Rivers State.
11 February 2024.
