News spread last week that the Vice President’s daughter, Dami Osibanjo is set to marry a Muslim man. This news has however been debunked by the Senior Special Assistant to the VP on Media & Publicity, Laolu Akande and he stated that the Olusegun Bakare is not a Muslim, but a pastor at an RCCG church parish.
He stated that the fiance, Olusegun Bakare is a member of the RCCG Abuja Central Parish and even a Teenagers Pastor there.
He stated this in a tweet on twitter. And this comes as a revelation on the true religion of the Vice Presidnet’s son-in-la to be.
The tweet reads,
In response to media inquiries, Oluseun Bakare to whom VP Osinbajo’s first born & daughter Oludamilola would be marrying, is a member of the RCCG Abuja Central Parish and Teenage church pastor there. We wish the blessed couple bliss!

Remember the Second Family had been criticised by many just last week that the news broke that the daughter of the VP, who is himself a pastor in the Redeemed Christain Church of God, is getting married to a Muslim man.
A lot of people claimed it is not about the religion, just as the pastor must have preached on the alter, but about the political connection that is set to come from the union.
The proposed wedding was even critisized by popular OAP, Daddy Freeze who maintained that if it was just an ordinary member of the church, the pastor would have disallowed the union, but for the fact that he is the Vice President and a top pastor, then it is just the right marriage.
Freeze referred to a case of another Redeemed pastor’s daughter Charity, who wanted to marry a Muslim, the whole CAN stepped out to stop the wedding.
Charity Uzoechina, the daughter of Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor, Raymond Uzoechina, who made headlines with her story of conversion to Islam, was set to marry the lawyer who handles her controversial case in court but the Niger state Government called it off and the Christian Association of Nigeria was also against the marriage.
But it seems the air has now being cleared as it is now obvious that Olusegun Bakare is a Christian and not a Muslim just as widely broadcasted.
