I Can’t Thank God Enough For My Survival – Osinbajo



Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo  yesterday said no amount of thanksgiving and praises to God will be enough for saving his life and nine other crew members in the helicopter crash.

The vice president survived an helicopter accident at Kabba, headquarters of Kabba local government area, Kogi State, township stadium on Saturday.

Osinbajo, who spoke during the Thanksgiving service for happy survival , held at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), City of Grace, along Okene – Kabba road  Lokoja, said only God can take the glory for saving his life and that of the nine crew members on board.

He thanked God for not allowing them be the subject of a breaking news both on local and international media on account of an air crash.

“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 who celebrated his survival at the state, national 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.

Earlier, in a live telecast from the RCCG HQ, Lagos State, the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, asked the congregation to rise and give glory to God for saving the life of his son, the VP, Yemi Osinbajo from a crash.

According to Adeboye, the devil wanted to take the life of Osinbajo, but God put the devil to shame.

He therefore asked the congregation to specially appreciate God on behalf of the VP and the crew onboard, for his supernatural protection, saying Nigeria will not mourn.

In his sermon, entitled: “Carriers of Glory”, Adeboye, said for anybody to carry glory he must be a true child of God and live a life of holiness.

Taking his lesson from the Bible in the book of Matthew 5 : 14- 15, he said: “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

“As a carrier of glory, anywhere you arrive the darkness will automatically disappears.

“When God begins to use you, the glory belongs to God and you, so you must learn to always give glory to God.

“Do not to take the glory to yourself because it is not yours, it belongs to God,” Adeboye said.

Dignitaries that attended the thankgiving service include: Speaker, Kogi House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Matthew Kolawole, Kogi SSG, Dr Ayoade Arike, SA to Governor on Security, Comdr Jerry Omodara, Kogi Commissioners, Smart Adeyemi, even Muslims who are in tune with the activities of the VP,  among who is called Ismaila Abubakar were among others who felicitated with the Vice President .
