Eulogies for Madam Aig-Imoukhuede
Ahead of today’s laying to rest of Pastor Emily Okhenren Aig-Imoukhuede, his son and former group managing director of Access Bank Plc, Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, has declared that the greatest tribute the family could pay to their late mother is to love as she loved.
The late matriarch died on June 8, 2021, in Surrey, England and will be laid to rest tomorrow after a funeral service at Our Saviour’s Church, Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
Speaking during the night of tributes at Habour Point, Victoria Island, Lagos, Aig-Imoukhuede urged his friends and associates to caution him anytime they observed he was not being compassionate as his late mother.
The banker, who couldn’t hold back tears as he eulogised his late mother, said the deceased’s compassion could not be measured.
Aig-Imoukhuede recalled that at a point, his mother told him to stop buying expensive things for her but to give the money to people in need or else she would sell such items and spend the money on charity.
He said: “I guess that is why a friend of mine said that in all he knew, saw and read, my mother could be one of the richest people in Nigeria but she had no interest in personal wealth; not because she had no interest in personal comfort but because everything she thought of was children, friends, family and the needy.
“I know I will need help but I guess that the greatest thing you just need to do for me without fear or hesitation is when you see Aigboje not being compassionate, tell me ‘remember Pastor Emily Okhenren Aig-Imoukhuede.”
