How Adeboye Called, Prayed For Me Before Helicopter Crash — Osinbajo
Twenty-four hours after surviving a helicopter accident in Kabba, Kogi State, Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo held a thanksgiving service in Lokoja, the state capital.
At the service, the Vice President narrated how Pastor Adeboye appeared to have foreseen the danger ahead and committed his safety into God’s hands.
“On Friday, we went to (RCCG) camp; usually, I attend our Holy Ghost service. We came in very late from Akwa Ibom State. We arrived just in time for the grace at the end of the service. After that, 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 (Adeboye) 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. 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 a favour and other things,” VP Osinbajo narrated.
He went on to testify of how the helicopter conveying him and his team to a campaign rally in Kogi crash-landed with everyone coming out unhurt.
He thanked God for sparing his life and that of the others who were on board.
Also speaking on the matter, the Senior Special Assistant to the VP on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, thanked God for safety, and also thanked Nigerians for their concern and prayers.
He said, “We are thankful to God for his deliverance and safety. The Vice President is not only thankful to God, but to all Nigerians who have expressed concern, affection and prayers.
“The Vice President is continuing with his schedule in Kogi and from there, he will go back to Abuja, and go to other places, to continue his ‘Next Level’ engagements with Nigerians”.
A full-scale investigation and report are expected within the coming days.
