Wigwe’s commitment to spreading gospel worthy of emulation – Adeboye

Wigwe’s commitment to spreading gospel worthy of emulation - Adeboye

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has paid tribute to the late Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Dr Herbert Wigwe, for his dedication to the gospel of Christ.

He also hailed the deceased banker for his philanthropy, intellect, nation-building, and other remarkable qualities he displayed during his lifetime.

Adeboye said this on Thursday at the combined Service of Songs for Wigwe, his wife, Chizoba, and their son, Chizi, which was held at the RCCG Resurrection Parish, Lekki, Lagos.

The trio died in a helicopter crash in the United States on February 9, alongside a former Chairman of the Nigerian Exchange group, Abimbola Ogunbanjo.

Reading an excerpt of Adeboye’s condolence message at the service was the Pastor in charge of Region 11 of  RCCG and Head of the Blessed Family, Pastor Charles Pande, who gave the word of exhortation.

Adeboye’s message partly read, “Dr Wigwe was not only an accomplished professional but a fine gentleman, possessing a prodigious intellect, admirable personal qualities and business acumen. His dedication to philanthropy, nation-building, advocacy for children’s literacy and love for the arts made him a remarkable individual.

“More importantly, his commitment to the Christian faith and active involvement in spreading the gospel were exemplary. We share in your profound grief during his challenging time. The void left by Dr Herbert will be felt and his absence deeply felt by all who had the privilege of knowing him.”

The immediate past Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo was also present at the event speaking well about his lifetime.
