“It is not the bank, the bank might have a new identity, a new boss to run it, other ventures will also have their names; but one thing that has his name is Wigwe University.

“We will do everything within our power to make sure the dream will continue to live just as he has planned it,” Fubara said.

Speaking further, Fubara said Wigwe’s death has prompted him to question his fellow political class on why they are struggling for power more than making impacts on the lives of the people.

“This one has to do with the political class, what is all these struggle all about? You want to kill, you want to bury, what is it all about?

“This is a man who was not a politician, he made his money through our investments, he had the world in his palm financially, he controlled even the political classes; but today, with all the power financially couldn’t control life. Is it not enough to ask ourselves why are we struggling? Why are we not making an impact on the lives of our people?”

Dignitaries present at the funeral service include governors and former governors, federal lawmakers, and captains of industries, among others.
