Vice President of Nigeria, Prof.Yemi Osibanjo has disclosed that respected clergy and the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye, gave a prophesy fur different times that he would become the country’s Vice President in 2015 Osinbajo stated this yesterday, while speaking during a special day of prayer for the general election, organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Plateau State Chapter, at Eliel Centre, Jos. Four years ago, Osinbajo and his principal President Muhammadu Buhari, defeated the incumbent government at the polls. With this year’s election holding tomorrow, the vice-president has admonished pastors across interdenominational churches in Plateau State, to pray and fast for a free, fair and peaceful Presidential and National Assembly elections.

“I urge you to continue to pray and fast for those of us in government; especially, pray for me and the Saturday elections,” Osinbajo said.He said after God saved his life from the recent helicopter crash, “God gave me a verse in the Holy Bible of Luke 13:13, and I know the devil can not interfer with the plans of God for this nation. “When I was picked as the presidential running mate in 2014, I ran to meet my father, Pastor Adeboye, and told him.Since it was the will of God, he told me, four times, that I would be the vice president of Nigeria and he blessed me.”

It will be recalled that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has given an insight into how he became the number two citizen of Nigeria, though he was not a politician, in the midst of the intrigues and build up to the 2015 general elections. Osinbajo’s explanation came against the backdrop of the controversy trailing how he has nominated and his eventual emergence as the Vice President.A portion of a recently-launched book by Professor John Paden on Buhari, titled “Muhammadu Buhari: Challenges of Leadership,” claimed that Osinbajo emerged as Vice President despite pressure against it by a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed TinubuPaden stated that the former Lagos State governor had wanted the Vice President’s role for himself and not Osinbajo.The Professor had noted that “With Buhari coming from the North-West geopolitical zone, the Vice-Presidency had been ceded to the South-West geopolitical zone.But other reports on the issue indicated that Osinbajo was solely nominated by Tinubu.

Speaking at a dinner organised in honour of over 200 graduates and beneficiaries of the Presidential Amnesty Programmes at the Presidential Villa, Wednesday night, Prof Osinbajo gave an indication that he was not in the reckoning ab initio.His word, “I was in a group of young men and women and one of them asked the question how did I become Vice President, I was never a politician or anything like that.
