Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has described the death of former Minister of Aviation, Dr Babalola Borishade, as a great loss to the political class, the people of Ekiti State and the country in general.
In a statement in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, the governor described Borishade as a consistent politician who stood for what he believed in.
“The death of Dr Babalola Borishade was not only sudden, but a rude shock. Our state and indeed our nation still expected a lot from him given his experience and wide network in the political circle. He served the nation in a number of capacities and was not found wanting.
“We will miss him and the vacuum his demise has created would be difficult to fill. The government and people of Ekiti State commiserate with his family and the monarch and people of Usi-Ekiti, his hometown. His place in the history of Ekiti and Nigeria is guaranteed and his invaluable contributions very much appreciated,” he said.
The governor prayed that the family of the deceased would have the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.DrDr Peter Ayodele Fayose
