Speaking at RCCG City of Grace, Lokoja, Kogi state, during a thanksgiving service after his helicopter crash, Osinbajo said: “Only God can take the glory for saving my life and that of the nine crew members on board.
"No amount of thanksgiving and praises to God would be enough for saving my life and nine crew on board. God is the one who can do all things, and only him can take the glory; we return the glory to him. We are here to say thank you, thank you JESUS. We bless his name forever and ever.
“All I have to say is that we are grateful and we are moving to the next level; the Lord will uphold us to the next level and Kogi will be number one."
Concerning the conversation he had with Adeboye when he called, Osinbajo said: “I briefed him on the progress we have made with the campaign and then the General Overseer prayed for God’s protection for me in all my travels and movements."
The vice president stated that the scheme of the enemy was averted by divine intervention. He said: “That was not what the devil had planned but what did the headline read, Vice President Osinbajo’s helicopter crashes all unhurt, not one crash.”

On his part, Adeboye said that the devil intended to sniff life out of the vice president, if not for God who came through for him in his divine mercy.
