Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the Kogi State government would have been in trouble if he did not survive the helicopter crash in February.
Osinbajo stated this on Sunday, during a thanksgiving service at the Aso Villa Chapel.
The vice-president escaped death, after the helicopter conveying him and his team crash-landed in Kabba, Kogi state.
No injury was sustained in the incident, which investigation later showed was as a result of “unusual weather condition”.
Osinbajo 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, the government of Kogi State would have also 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.”
