After the crash, the vice president came out unhurt and immediately continued his business in the state, receiving a warm welcome from residents as he was driven through the town.

Five years down the line, Akande, who was the Vice President’s spokesperson and also part of his entourage during the accident, attributed their safety to God alone.

Taking to his account on the X platform on Friday, 2nd February 2024, Akande said only God delivered the Vice President, himself and others on board when the aircraft crashlanded.

He added that if not for God, today would have been their 5th year memorial.

“To God be the glory! Today’s the 5th-year anniversary of that great deliverance the LORD granted immediate past VP Osinbajo, myself & others after our Chopper crash-landed in Kogi. If not for God, this would have been the 5th year memorial! We serve a living God, He preserved us!,” he wrote.
