“My sympathies go out to the families of those who perished in the tragic accident and our thoughts are with Herbert’s surviving children and the families of all who died,” he wrote.

“I had the privilege of knowing Herbert more closely in 2009 during his setting up of the Access Bank branch in Ghana. He came across as a brilliant and determined young man who was on a swift upward trajectory. This is evident in the growth of Access Bank into a widely recognised global brand.

“Herbert’s legacy in the finance and banking sectors will always be remembered. RIP,” Mr Mahama added.
