Aigboje Aig-Imoukhede, the former Managing Director of the Access Bank Group, has been appointed as the chairman of Access Holdings, according to a statement from the financial institution filed with the Nigerian Exchange Limited on Wednesday.

Aig-Imoukhede will replace Abubakar Jimoh, the former Chairman of the HoldCo, who will remain on the Board as an Independent Non-Executive Director.


Aig-Imoukhede returns to the group after a 10-year absence, following the passing of his friend and co-founder, Herbert Wigwe, in a helicopter crash in February, along with his wife, Doreen, and son, Chizzy. They were buried in a private tomb inside the Wigwe University, which he built in Isiokpo, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State on March 9.

Jimoh expressed his excitement about Aig-Imoukhede’s appointment, describing it as a landmark development for Access Holdings. Aig-Imoukhede also expressed his enthusiasm, stating his confidence in delivering outstanding value to stakeholders.

Since retiring as the bank’s CEO in 2013, Aig-Imoukhede has been involved in overseeing a portfolio of investments and businesses in banking, finance, insurance, technology, real estate, and energy through the Tengen Family Office Limited, which he co-founded.
