It takes a steel heart and keen will to make money. It takes character and wisdom to tame it. But very few bankers are aware of this fact. Thus many have fallen to the lure of money, the common whore and procurer of people and nations. But where his peers flounder and stumble, Aig Imoukhuede, the former MD of Access Bank soars like falcon.
Yes, Aig affects the depth of the ancient thus his capacity to command the bittersweet complexities of money and its steep per cents. However, Aig is 51 today. It has long been established that Aig knows how to throw a party; and those who were at his birthday soiree last year are still talking about it gleefully. Predictably, the celebration was a high-class event that attracted the crÃ¨me de la crÃ¨me of Nigeriaâ€™s high society. The star-studded event took place in his mansion in Surrey, London. Nothing ever runs out of supply; not even the extremely rare Armand de Brignac Brut Gold â€˜Dynastieâ€™ collection of champagne favoured by his billionaire friends. It was a great party and an undeniable testament to the celebrantâ€™s worth as a true man of the people. Today promises to be grander.
Interestingly, he has joined the International Advisory Board (IAB) of the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford. The invitation to join the schoolâ€™s IAB, was extended to Aig by the boardâ€™s chairman, the Lord Browne of Madingley, on behalf of the board and the school. Other members of the board include former United States President Bill Clinton and Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google.
