The immediate past senator representing Ondo North Senatorial District, Ajayi Boroffice, has described his sojourn in the Red Chamber as challenging and rewarding.
Boroffice was a three-term senator in the upper chamber of the National Assembly between 2011 and 2023.
The senator, in a statement on Monday, said he and his colleagues worked tirelessly to make laws and policies that will transform Nigeria into a better place for all.
The statement was titled ‘My legacies in Ondo North will outlive me’.
The statement read, “With utmost gratitude to Almighty God and the good people of Ondo North Senatorial District, the countless impacts and enduring legacies I have enacted in the areas of employment, empowerment, infrastructure and attraction of government agencies to Ondo North senatorial district will stand the test of time.
“For the past 12 years, I have had the rare opportunity to represent the esteemed people of Ondo North Senatorial District across three different Assemblies: the 7th, 8th, and 9th. This privilege has offered me the platform to make enormous impacts in the lives of my constituents, an honour I do not take lightly.”
He added that from the very moment, he was elected into the Senate in 2011 till this moment of bowing out, his dedication to service remained firm and unwavering with the support of his distinguished colleagues in the Senate, whose solid support has been instrumental to his delivery of quality leadership and adequate representation to the people of Ondo North senatorial district.
“Together, my colleagues and I have worked tirelessly to bring about positive change, to make laws and policies that will transform our beloved Nation, Nigeria, into a better place for all. Even during the coronavirus pandemic, some of my colleagues and I worked every day to provide leadership and legislative support to the interventions of the Executive arm of the government.
“As I step away from my role as the Deputy Majority Leader of the senate, I carry with me cherished memories, valuable experiences, and a deep sense of fulfilment. The journey has been challenging, but it has also been incredibly rewarding. I am confident that the seeds we have sown together will continue to bear fruit, and the legacy of service and dedication will endure,” the statement added.
He further expressed appreciation to the people of the state and other stakeholders for supporting him throughout his stay in the National Assembly.
