During a poignant service of songs at The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Resurrection Parish in Lekki, Lagos, Prof. Osinbajo shared his thoughts on Herbert Wigwe, describing him as more than just a figure in the financial services sector.

According to Prof. Osinbajo, Wigwe was a true friend who not only spoke with integrity but also acted with integrity.

In his words: “This is not just a national tragedy but across Africa and many parts of the world. Many are grieving the loss of a true friend, a hope bringer and a man for whom the future always seems too imminent.

“Across this land and elsewhere, many have been weeping with you. This tragedy has trouble so many, young and old; Herbert friends and associates, Doris’ circle of friends and associates, Chizie’s friends, a deep dark cloud hang over our heart.

Narrating his last moment with the late Wigwe, Osinbajo said: “However, we have heard so much about Herbert examplary lifes and times, I have known him for so many years. While I was in office for the entire eight years that I was in office, Herbert called me practically every other month just to say how are you doing never ask for favour.

“But two months before I left office he called me and said he needed to see me and I thought he must have some mission and he came with a note book and I was very surprised because Herbert never ever came with a note book and said he wants to know what my plans are for the future after I left office. I laughed over it but he insisted and he took note diligently of everything that I said I wanted to do. Thereafter he visited me at least three or four times before I left office”

Continuing, “the Thursday before the week he died, he called me on Tuesday that he is coming to see me on Thursday and he did. He spent about two hours reviewing practically about everything, so many things. The university, philanthropist he was involved in and various other things.

“I don’t think any event in recent times for me in particular had so germane and made it clear how important friends are and how important our relationship are. Herbert was someone who walk the talk of brotherhood and friendship, he doesn’t just talk but he walk the talk. He was there for his friends, associates and we see how deeply he care for his family".
