Late London based businesswoman, Chief (Mrs.) Bola Amole has been honoured by the House of Lords in the United Kingdom.

The late boss of BIMS African Foods was honoured in appreciation of her contribution to the growth of the African local market in the United Kingdom by the ex-Mayor of Southwark and current Councillor, Sunil Chopra.

It was further gathered that the Certificate of Appreciation, which was accepted by 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.

Known to be a woman of great influence and a role model to many, late Amole's status as a businesswoman and agriculturist, became notable when she emerged 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.

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.
