Agbede is announced by Access Holdings as acting Following the untimely death of Herbert Wigwe, GCEO Access Holdings Plc has named Bolaji Agbede as the Acting Group Chief Executive Officer.


This was revealed in a statement released by Access Holdings Plc's board of directors on Tuesday. Ms. Agbede was the company's most senior founding executive director in charge of business support prior to her appointment.


With the Central Bank of Nigeria's clearance, she would assume leadership of Access Holdings Plc's operations. This transformation represents a turning point in the history of the organization as it works through the difficulties posed by an abrupt change in leadership. Agbede has a remarkable career trajectory in banking and business consulting services, spanning over three decades, which has given her a wealth of experience and strategic insight.


Meanwhile, US officials stated on Sunday that initial findings point to snowy weather as the reason for the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Herbert Wigwe, the group chief executive officer of Access Holding Plc, as well as his wife, son, and other passengers.


Michael Graham, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board, stated that officials were on the site to collect perishable evidence at a media conference on Saturday (3 am Nigerian time, Sunday). Witness accounts of the weather at the time of the accident point to a wintry mix and rain.


Neither a flight data recorder nor a cockpit voice recorder were installed on the chopper. Graham added, "Those kinds of recording equipment were not necessary for this chopper to have. When questioned about any facts on the passengers, Graham said that none existed, but that "any names will be released through the coroner's office," but he did not say when.
