Posthumous Honours for Bola Amole by UK’s House of Lords

In her lifetime, Chief (Mrs.) Bola Amole was known to be a woman of great influence and a role model to many. Her status as a businesswoman of international repute was never in doubt. As an agriculturist, she made her mark and with her company, BIMS African Foods, she became one of the very first women to import agricultural crops into the United Kingdom and the EU from Nigeria.
Since inception in 1994, BIMS has grown to become not just a reliable supplier of African food items, but a company Asian outlets in South London can hardly do without.

Virtues such as diligence, generosity and loyalty complemented her hardworking nature and she had

been known for community work both in Nigeria and the United Kingdom, even before she ventured into politics in her home country. Her unrivaled generosity endeared her to many and she was a source of inspiration to upcoming business people.

Her demise shortly before Nigeria’s general elections last year was a rude shock and from Ibadan to London, people mourned the exit of an icon.
On Thursday, May 19, 2016 however, Chief (Mrs) Bola Amole’s contributions again came to the fore as she was honoured at the House of Lords, United Kingdom by the ex-Mayor of Southwark and current Councillor, Sunil Chopra.

The Certificate of Appreciation, which was accepted by Mrs Amole’s daughter was presented by Lord Popat, who was appointed a Minister of the Crown Government Whip in the House of Lords, United Kingdom.
