Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has opened up on how he consulted the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye before accepting to run as Vice President.
Osinbajo said this at the public presentation of a book, ‘Pastor E. A. Adeboye: His Life and Calling’, at Redemption Camp on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State..
The Vice President was a pastor in one of the RCCG churches before his foray into politics.
Mr. Osinbajo said he also sought the view of his wife, Dolapo, saying that his inexperience as a politician made him consult the duo.
“I consulted Daddy (Adeboye) and he gave the go-ahead to accept the VP position; before then I was not a politician,” he said.
Mr. Osinbajo later became Nigeria’s vice president after the APC won the 2015 presidential elections. He has been acting as president since President Muhammadu Buhari went on medical vacation about 100 days ago.
The acting president noted that RCCG was the only church that has been able to pull the largest gathering at a single convention in the world.
“Apart from Coca-Cola, the Church is next in mileage across the world. And it all has to do with sincerity, dedication and humility of Daddy G.O,” Mr. Osinbajo said.
