Nigerian business magnate and Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote, has announced the naming of its largest road network to Dangote Refinery after the late founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Bank Holdings, Herbert Wigwe.

Dangote made this announcement during a night of tribute titled 'Celebrating Herbert Wigwe - A Professional Legacy' held in Lagos on Monday.

In his condolence speech, Dangote stated that the decision to immortalize Wigwe was in recognition of his visionary leadership and transformative impact.

"Herbert was a visionary, role model, and perfectionist who gave much of himself. He is no longer here with us, but his transformative strides are seen throughout our economic landscape and social milieu.

"I am proud to name him my devoted friend, mentee, and brother.

"Finding another Herbert is difficult; I owe him eternal gratitude.

"Although he never joined the military line, he can be considered a soldier of courage and distinction.

"To immortalize my beloved friend, brother, and mentee, I have decided to name our major refinery and petrochemical road, out of the 120 kilometers, the biggest road will be named Herbert Wigwe,"
Dangote declared.

The gesture aims to honor Wigwe's memory and recognize his significant contributions to the Nigerian business landscape.

It's worth noting that Herbert Wigwe, his wife Chizoba, son Chizi, and former group chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc, Abimbola Ogunbajo, tragically lost their lives in a helicopter crash in California, United States, on February 9, less than a month ago.
