Laolu Akande, the spokesman of Vice President Osinbajo has released full testimony Mr.Osinbajo gave at a Thanksgiving Service on Sunday after he survived a helicopter crash.
Osinbajo revealed that on Friday, he had gone to the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) camp for the February edition Holy Ghost service.
His spokesman, in a statement on Monday, quoted Osinbajo as saying: “We came in very late from Akwa Ibom State. In fact, we arrived just in time for the grace at the end of the service.
Thereafter, our daddy in the Lord, (G.O) Pastor Adeboye, wanted to speak to me. He asked me how things were going on, the campaign activities and all that, and I explained everything; what I was doing on the campaign trail and all of that, some of the challenges.
He then said, I am going to pray for you. He said a prayer that turned out to be very interesting because usually, as you know, he doesn’t pray for long.
He said “Lord God Almighty, I want you to protect this man,” He said it three times and paused, then he continued. “You know how very dear he is to my heart. .
I want you to protect him.” I found it very funny that he repeated it several times and then he prayed for favour and other things.
So, when the crash happened, immediately it dawned on me that the Lord God had led him to say that very special prayer. .
The VP also called up members of his entourage, including his elder brother, Femi Osinbajo, who were with him in the Chopper and who were in the church to join him at the altar.
Osinbajo added: “This is my older brother, the same father, same mother. Our father passed on long ago, but our mother is alive. .
If both of us had lost our lives on the same day, that would have been an absolute tragedy, but God saved that from happening.”
