The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, yesterday, said that he survived the helicopter crash in Kogi State in February saved many people, both in and outside of government, the trouble of explaining their roles in conspiracy theories that would have followed, otherwise.
Professor Osinbajo stated this at a thanksgiving service for the elections victory of All Progressives Congress, APC, at the State House Conference Centre, Abuja.
Osinbajo said if he had died in the crash, many government and non-government officials, including his security details, would have been blamed or put in trouble for many things they didn’t even know about.
He said: “On February 2, God gave me reasons 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; even the government of Kogi State would also have 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.”
