Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (1)

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday expressed thanksgiving to God for keeping him alive alongside 11 others who were involved in a helicopter crash on February 2, 2019, in Kabba, Kogi State.

Prof Osinbajo was billed to launch the TraderMoni initiative in Kabba during the visit.

The vice president expressed his gratitude while addressing State House correspondents after representing President Muhammadu Buhari at the virtual extraordinary session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government.

“This would have been the second anniversary of my passing on,” he told journalists, adding, “but as God ordained it, it is actually the second anniversary of thanksgiving.”

According to an eyewitness at the scene of the crash, the helicopter had managed to land at about 2:22 pm at Kabba Township Stadium before its propeller suddenly pulled off to the surprise of supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who had gathered to welcome Osinbajo.
