Roli Bode -George,former Director-General (DG) of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency,NDLEA and wife of former Deputy National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, is bereaved .
The one-time society lady lost her mother, Mama Daisy Madedor, at age 88.
The late Octogenarian died on Sunday, August 23rd, 2020.She was married to Dr Madedor, a distinguished engineer and the union blessed with five children.
In a statement signed by her son-in-law,Chief Olabode George,he said Mama Madedor, one of the well trained professional nurses who studied in England but chose to come back home as a pioneering member of the Lagos Health Care Services, died peacefully as a fulfilled, and an accomplished woman who was true to herself, her husband and also her family.
For Roli George who has been maintaining low profile,it may be opportunity to come out of her cocoon with her high profile friends.
For Roli, her marriage to the PDP chieftain proved to be a well-thought out venture with attractive dividends. Her marriage to Bode George saw her bagged two federal appointments within three years while Goodluck Jonathan was president. It will be recalled that in 2011, she was appointed as a member of the National Population Commission (NPC) representing Lagos State, an act that pitted the Lagos State Government against the Federal Government because the former claimed that it was not consulted before the appointment was made.
She later got appointed as the Director-General (DG) of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). But ever since she got booted out of office by the incumbent administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Roli, had been quiet. The former DG who maintained a showy public presence has since gone underground. She jealously keeps a low profile at the moment.
