Mrs. Remilekun Violet Phillips-George, the mother of elder statesman and former Deputy National Vice-Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, is dead.

She was aged 90.

Mrs. Phillips-George reportedly died in her sleep as a result of old age on Wednesday.

News of her death was announced at a meeting of the South West leaders of the party held at the International Event Centre, Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Wednesday. The members also commiserated with Chief George and observed a minute silence in honour of the deceased.

Speaking in a chat with Independent, Chief George described his mother as a “very gentle loving mother who raised her three children to become respectable people in the society.”

“I will miss her greatly. Her name is Mrs. Remilekun Violet Phillips-George. She just turned 90 about two weeks ago. She has three children and I am the only son.  I have two sisters. She died peacefully in her sleep. I am the only son so you can see how she really spoilt me. But I give glory to God for the quality life she spent on earth,” he said.

In his tribute, Dr. Adegbola Dominic, a former governorship aspirant of the party in the state, said that the deceased was a mother to all.

According to him, she related well with all manner of persons that came her way during her lifetime.

He also urged Chief George and his entire family to sustain the legacies of their late mother “who served God and impacted positively on humanity during her stay on earth.

“We thank God for giving us Mama George. While we commiserate with Chief Bode George, the Atona Oodua, on this irreparable loss, we are consoled with the fact that mama lived a very productive life in service to God and humanity”, he said.
