The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday said that his surviving
helicopter crash in Kogi State last February had spared a ton of people all through government. As indicated by him, they would have been made to clarify their jobs in unnecessary fear inspired notions.
Pointing out that if he had died in the crash, which occurred while landing in Kabba, Kogi State before the general elections, he stressed that 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.
To this end, he said that God deserved to be praised not only for saving his life but also for saving many other persons the trouble of being smeared with false allegations.
After the crash, he recalled that a woman repeatedly hinted that Kogi State itself could have been the cause of the accident.
He said “On February 2nd, God gave me reason to know that but for His grace we would have been consumed, when our helicopter crashed.
“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," he added.
