Bode Akindele Dies At 88 by EcoBrick: 6:43pm On Jun 29
By Bisi Oladele, Ibadan

The Parakoyi of Ibadanland and the Chairman of Madandola Group, Chief Bode Akindele, is dead.

Akindele, who was a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist, died in his Apapa, Lagos home on Monday at the age of 88 years, according to a reliable source.

Born on June 2,1932, his father, Pa Joshua Laniyan Akindele, was a Chief Tax Clerk for the entire defunct Western Region, a position that can be equated to that of the Chairman of the Inland Revenue today. His mother, Rabiatu Adedigba, was a wealthy Ibadan trader who was politically influential. Alhaja Rabiatu was the first woman to go to Mecca in Ibadan.

Chief Akindele’s business empire operates under the name Modandola Group Of Companies, named after his mother, which translates to ‘God, if you give me the wealth, give me a child that can take care of it.’ Madandola Group spans from maritime to properties, manufacturing, real estates, investments, finance and flour milling with its headquarters in the United Kingdom.

The Fairgate Group, (a company owned by Chief Akindele, located on Bond Street, London, England), deals mainly in properties. Some of its tenants include giant retail stores such as Sainsbury and Asda supermarkets. As at the last quantification, the Fairgate Group was said to be worth over £1billion.

Among the subsidiaries of the Madandola Group Standard Breweries, Ibadan, Diamond Foods Ltd, Ibadan, United Beverages Ltd, Ibadan, Associated Match Industry, Ibadan, merged with Ilorin, Port-Harcourt and Lagos to form a company with a large share of the Nigerian market and Standard Flour Mills in Lagos.

This abroad hospital closure is really affecting the rich that are used to it.
They are all dieing now because they can't travel again for medical check up and treatments

But is it not sheer wickedness for them to have abandoned us to obsolete and dilapidated health care system?

Their body system can't cope with the same local dish they have been happily serving us since with reckless abandon and callous mind

The chicken has finally come home to roost
Hope they will all repent after this hard lesson from covid 19 and turn a new leaf

May his soul RIP
