Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has given a hint on how he and other nine crew members survived when a helicopter conveying them crash landed at Kabba, Kogi State on Saturday afternoon.
Osinbajo spoke on Sunday during a thanksgiving service, held at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), City of Grace Mega Parish, Lokoja.
He said prior to the incident, he had met with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye who passionately prayed and declared that, “God, please, protect this my son (Osinbajo) and let nothing happen to him”.
He said when the helicopter crash landed, it quickly dawned on him that God had led Pastor Adeboye to pray for his (Osinbajo) miraculous deliverance and those of the other crew on board.
Osinbajo said, “Only God can take the glory for saving my life and that of the nine crew members on board”.
According to Osinbajo, amongst the other nine crew members that survived was his blood brother of same mother and father, saying that it would have been double tragedy for his immediate family and the nation at large were it not for God’s intervention.
He said that it would have been a breaking news on local and international media that “VP Osinbajo and nine crew members died in a helicopter crash”, but God averted it in his mercy.
“No amount of thanksgiving and praises to God would be enough for saving my life and nine crew on board.
“God is the One who can do all things, and only him can take the glory; we return the glory back to him.
“We are here to say thank you, thank you Jesus. We bless his name forever and ever”, he said.
He prayed God to bless all the people that have celebrated with him in the state, the nation and the world at large.
“All I have to say is that we are grateful and we are moving to the next level; the Lord will uphold us to the next level and Kogi will be number one,” Osinbajo said.
