The Flipside of Herbert Wigwe…How He Became an Idol to His Wife

  • His role as a father and husband

Herbert Wigwe, the ebullient Managing Director of Access Bank, was made for Chizoba. To Chizoba, it probably feels like she had him ordered and delivered to her, to be worshipped and revered. On this note, it may be said that Herbert is Chizoba’s idol. And this is where it gets interesting; Herbert also considers Chizoba a boon from God. He treasures her like a priceless heirloom – this explains his predilection to flaunt her like a sapphire-studded wristwatch or button hole bouquet to the world. Herbert adorns the cloak of fatherhood with unprecedented pride hence he never shies from performing his fatherly roles to his wards. Herbert effortlessly proves that affluence and child-rearing often go hand in hand, under the watchful and compassionate guardianship of a model father.

He creates quality time to be with his children. The top bank MD has successfully raised his children to be his source of joy and abiding peace. And to guarantee their evolution into full-fledged adults, he creates time to celebrate every aspect of his children’s lives; he is part of their progress every step of the way thus he spends vacations with them in exotic locations across the world, and he is there to celebrate their graduations, birthdays and other success stories. Neither cord nor cable can so forcibly draw, or hold so fast, as love has done in the family of the MD of Access Bank.

To the stylish banker, love and marriage so gladly combine, like Siamese twins born in the same clime. Herbert is head over heels in love with Chizoba years after his heart skipped to the sweet, soft drift of her smile. The portrait they present is arresting and regularly breathtaking: the pomp and circumstance, pageantry and elegance so clearly defined and characteristic of solemnities perpetuated by historic monarchies, but with a contemporary difference that’s hip and humanizing.

Their story reads like a fable, a rousing tale of a charming prince and princess caught in irreducible splendor of love hewed in honesty and a royal palace.
