Osinbajo: I’m on loan to FG

- By Adelanwa Bamgboye & John Chuks Azu

Vice Professor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) said he is only on loan to the federal government, because he is still a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

Osinbajo said this Tuesday at the Special Welcome and Thanksgivi­ng Service organized for him and his wife at the RCCG regional headquarte­rs in Utako, Abuja.

“Just like Pastor Ibitayo has said we are on loan. I am still the Pastor-in-Charge of Province 48 in Lagos and my wife remains wife of the Pastor in charge. The most important part of our lives is that we are God’s children; there is nothing more important than that.

“It is from that place that God chooses to honour in various ways and give us various responsibi­lities; the responsibi­lity we have now is also of the church of God.

Speaking earlier, the pastor-in-charge of Region 10, Pastor Emmanuel Ibitayo said the thanksgivi­ng has become necessary “because God chose our brother to become the vice president.”

“We have been supporting the past government­s and we will support this one to the letter. And by God’s Grace this government shall not fail,” he said.
