Nigeria’s Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has narrated how his pastor, E.A Adeboye’s prayer and God’s mercy saved him alongside the other passengers with him during the February helicopter crash in Kogi State.
Osinbajo made this known 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
“I am Yemi Osinbajo, Pastor in charge of Lagos Province 48 of RCCG,” he began as the congregation cheered excitedly.
“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.”
“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!’ The congregation roared.
The wife of the general overseer, Folu Adeboye, had earlier offered her usual prayers for all nations, during which she specifically thanked God for the largely peaceful presidential and National Assembly elections.
