Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo says his surviving a helicopter crash in Kogi State last February had saved a lot of persons in and out of government.
The Vice President stated this on Sunday at the old Banquet Hall of the State House during a special thanksgiving service for the victory of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the recent presidential election.
Recall that the chopper of the Vice President crash landed in Kabba, Kogi state during a presidential campaign of the ruling party.
While noting that they would have been saddled with the responsibility of explaining their roles in needless conspiracy theories, Osinbajo pointed that if he had died in the crash, many government and non-government officials, including his security details, would have been blamed or put in trouble for many things they didn’t even know about.
Osinabjo gave God the praise for not only for saving his life but also for saving many other the trouble of being smeared with false allegations.
After the crash, the vice president recalled that a woman repeatedly hinted that Kogi State itself could have been the cause of the accident.
Revealing that God gave him reason to know that if not for His grace, he and others would have been consumed when the helicopter crashed.
He further revealed that when the crashed occurred, for a moment there was complete silence.
“For a second, it occurred to me that if we had died, that is what it would have been – complete silence. But we all got out without a scratch. God delivered us.
“God also delivered those in charge of our security; even the government of Kogi State would also have been in trouble. We give God all the glory.
“I pray God will also be kind to you all also, that you will never be lacking in support, care and genuine prayers.
“God is surely worthy to be praised. I have no special qualifications to be here but exaltation comes from God”. the vice president added
