The Chairman and CEO of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, has named the “biggest” road network leading to his Lagos refinery after the late Herbert Wigwe.

The Nation reports Wigwe died with his wife and son in an helicopter crash in California, the United States of America.

Dangote, while paying his tribute to the late billionaire banker in a programme organised in his honour, said though the former Access Holdings CEO didn’t join the military he could be referred to as a soldier.

“Part of the 120km refinery road. The biggest road will be now named Herbert Wigwe Road,” Dangote said at a memorial for the late bank chief on Monday evening.

He added that by naming the road after Herbert Wigwe, “people will see this road leading to the refinery and would find out who was this Herbert Wigwe.“

According to him, Wigwe was a man loved by all who lived a life worthy of emulation.
