Breaking News: Former Minister Of Aviation, Prof. Babalola Borishade Dies @ 71

Former Vice President and chieftain of All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar expresses shock and sadness at the death of former Aviation Minister, Professor Babalola Borishade. Atiku, in a condolence message personally signed by him says the late Borishade was a man of simple and steady character, who easily created friendships with people around him.

“I have lost a dear friend. I have known Boris (as I fondly called him) for more than three decades as a friend, a political tactician, strategist, organizer and philosopher.” “We worked collectively and prayed together that he would come out of the illness but God knows best.”

Professor Abraham Babalola Borishade was born in Usi- Ekiti on 7th day of March, 1946 into the Ebi Ilotin Family. He has been a Federal Minister in Nigeria four times, between 1999-2011. He was one of the strategists that made the Yar’Adua group one of the formidable groups ever in Nigeria.

Atiku recalls the quality leadership that Borishade provided during his bid for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress in 2015, when he (Borishade) was the Director General of his campaign.

“I recall with fond memories the wonderful working relationships with Boris (as I fondly called him) during the Federal Executive Council days when we were in government and most recently as the indefatigable Director General of my presidential campaign. “Boris would respond to every challenge with elan and worked as a fantastic team player, such that he would pass as one of the finest administrators I have worked with.”

The Turakin Adamawa condoles with the government and people of Ekiti State for the loss of an illustrious elder statesman. He also prays for the bereaved family, friends and political associates of the deceased to have the fortitude to bear the loss and for God to grant Borishade’s soul a peaceful repose.
