President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family of former Minister of Education, Professor Babalola Borishade, who died on Wednesday.
President Buhari sent his condolences to the government and people of Ekiti State, professional colleagues, political associates and friends of the renowned academic and political strategist.
According to him, Borishade’s antecedents in the academia and public service will continue to speak for generations to come.
The President made this known in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
He believes Borishade distinguished himself in patriotism by diligently serving as a minister in four ministries, and initiating laudable projects and regulating structures that have remained the reference points in all the institutions after many years.
Furthermore, the President pointed out the unwavering support of the septuagenarian to the policy team of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and his contributions in ensuring victory at the polls for the party in 2015.
He, therefore, prayed that the almighty God grants the soul of the departed former minister eternal rest, and comfort his loved ones.
