In a statement 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,” he said.
