Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, claimed on Sunday that Nigeria had lost some of its most well-known figures in the previous three days.
Fani-Kayode claimed that the past three days had been a nightmare for Nigeria due to the passing of Herbert Wigwe, the founder of Access Holdings, Cairo Ojuogboh, a prominent member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Brigadier-General Jones Oladeinde Arogbofa (rtd.), the former Chief of Staff of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He stated that the trio’s passing was a catastrophe of enormous scale for Nigeria.
Fani-Kayode posted on X, saying: “We lost Hon. Cairo Ojuogboh three days ago. He was a formidable politician, a former member of the House of Representatives, and the director of the NDDC.”
“We lost Brigadier-General Jones Oladeinde Arogbofa (rtd.) yesterday. He was a brave and honorable former Army commander and President Goodluck Jonathan’s (@GEJonathan) former chief of staff.
“As the devastating news of these two wonderful gentlemen’s deaths started to sink in, we received even more devastating news late last night when we learned that my childhood friend and brother, Bimbo Ogunbanjo, the Chairman of the Nigerian Exchange PLC, and Herbert Wigwe (@HerbertOWigwe), the CEO of Access Holdings (along with his gorgeous wife and son), had died in a horrifying helicopter crash.
“It is a tragedy of enormous proportions that each and every one of these remarkable and successful people has passed away.
“Nigeria has experienced a nightmare over the past three days as some of our brightest and best have been taken from us.” Without a doubt, it is worst for our country, and we will miss them all.
