Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has received with shock the news of the death of a former Minister of Education, Prof. Babalola Borishade, who he described as an academic and public servant par excellence.
Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, described the former Minister as a dynamic administrator and great reformer.
He said: “Prof. Borishade was a man of many parts. He was an engineer, teacher, politician and strategist, who brought a touch of excellence to every assignment he handled.
“Some of the great achievements the nation recorded in the aviation, education and power sectors in the country since 1999 had the imprimatur of Professor Borishade,” he said.
He commiserated with the immediate family of the deceased, the government and people of Ekiti State over the incident, while calling on them to take solace in the enduring legacy of forthrightness, integrity, loyalty and hard-work left by their father.
He equally prayed God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest, and the family, the grace to bear the loss.
