Access Holdings board of directors appoints Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede as Chairman



Aigboje Aig Imoukhuede

Access Holdings Plc (‘the Holdco’), has announced the return of Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, CFR to the bank as its Non-Executive Chairman.

He replaces Mr. Abubakar Jimoh, the erstwhile Chairman of the HoldCo who remains on the Board as an Independent Non-Executive Director.

The return of Aig-Imoukhuede is in response to the untimely passing of the immediate past Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings, Dr. Herbert Wigwe, CFR.

The bank said the appointment followed extensive consultations with key stakeholders and as such the Holdco Board unanimously “decided to invite Mr. Aig-Imoukhuede to the helm of governance” the statement read.

According to the bank, as Non-Executive Chairman, Mr. Aig-Imoukhuede will “collaborate with the Board of Directors to oversee strategy and provide guidance to the executive management team.”

Mr. Aig-Imoukhuede also responded stating he is thrilled to be back in the bank and “determined” to realize the shared vision he had with Dr. Wigwe

The reappointment of Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede as the Non-Executive Chairman of Access Holdings PLC is a move that industry analysts and insiders might have seen coming, given the close professional relationship and alignment in vision he shared with the late Dr. Herbert Wigwe.

Mr. Aig-Imoukhuede’s return appears to be a well-orchestrated response to any potential risk the demise of Herbert Wigwe could pose to the future of Nigeria’s largest financial service company by total assets.

Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, CFR was the former MD/CEO of Access Bank Plc (now Access Holdings) for 10 years and handed over to the late Herbert Wige upon the expiry of his tenure.
