Naija News reports that Osinbajo made this comment on Saturday at the 35th anniversary of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Holy Ghost Service, which marked Mr Adeboye’s 77th birthday anniversary, where he revealed details of the prayers he received at the Redemption Camp from Mr Adeboye, the general overseer of the church, hours before the helicopter conveying him crashed.
This online news platform recalls that the chopper carrying the Vice President and his crew crash-landed in Kabba, Kogi state, north-central Nigeria last month. Osinbajo and his crew survived the crash.
Speaking on his meeting with Adeboye before the crash, Osinbajo said, “I am Yemi Osinbajo, Pastor in charge of Lagos Province 48 of RCCG, I thank God for the salvation of my soul.
“Two testimonies: The first is that on February 2nd, I came late for the Holy Ghost Service. After the service, I went to see Daddy in his office and he said he wanted to pray for me. My wife, Dolly, and I knelt down as he prayed, ‘Father, I want you to give special protection to your son.
“He prayed that three times and stopped. Then he prayed it again. I was getting worried about why he had to pray that way. But anyway, later that day the helicopter I was travelling in crashed in Kabba. All 12 of us in the helicopter survived without a scratch. I want to bless the name of the Lord for that”, the Vice President said.
On his Second term victory as Vice to President Muhammadu Buhari, Osinbajo attributed his victory to God.
“My second testimony is that on February 23, I was re-elected with President Buhari, for a second term as Vice President and I want to praise the Lord. Praise Jesus. Who did it?
“Jesus!”, Osinbajo added.
