Professor Yemi Osibajo is currently the Vice President of the Federal republic of Nigeria. He’s a Pastor of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
Many a prominent pastor have issued failed prophecies and consequently suffered ridicule for their words. But Vice President Yemi Osinbajo knows that one pastor whose pronouncements are priceless. As a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Banana Island, Ikoyi, he never took his calling as a racket nor did he ever seek to court cheap acclaim via expensive, phony prophecies. Osinbajo was a true man of God, according to RCCG faithful. So is the man that led him to Christ. Recently, the VP opened up on who led him to Christ. The person is Pastor Tony Rapu of Freedom House, who equally clocked 60 some weeks ago
According to him, “In 1993, I came to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Apapa Parish, where Pastor Tony was pastoring. I was in a workers group. Guess what he named that workers group? Government! It was prophetic – unbelievable, the number of us who actually went into government.… Oby Ezekwesili was in the same group. She, of course, became Minister in two different departments… The prophetic word had gone forth.” Osinbajo who turned 60 a few days ago, was the Pastor in charge of the Lagos Province 48 (Olive Tree provincial headquarters) of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Banana Island, Ikoyi before his inauguration as the Vice President of Nigeria. He is still a pastor of the parish contrary to some speculations that he has resigned as RCCG Pastor
