Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is thanking God for preserving his life as he marks the one year anniversary of surviving a helicopter crash.
Osinbajo and 11 other persons escaped unscathed from the crash which happened in Kabba, Kogi state.
The management of Caverton helicopters had said unusual weather condition caused the crash.
The vice president on Sunday, February 2, 2020, held a thanksgiving service at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja.
Speaking to State House correspondents, Osinbajo described the incident as “an awesome and incredible deliverance.”
"I think that what happened on that occasion was so amazing, so miraculous; 12 of us in a helicopter; the helicopter crashed and not one scratch on any one of us," he said.
The number two man said all he can do is continue to thank God for delivering him and others who were in the helicopter.
“That’s why we are here this morning to just praise God,” he said.
Several Nigerians are on social media thanking God for sparing the number two citizen's life.
Laolu Akande, Osinbajo's senior special adviser on media and publicity, thanked all those wishing the VP well.
His message on Twitter read: "Today is exactly one year after the Kogi Miracle! Just reminds me, God sent us here! The VP & the team on board once again give all praises and glory to the good LORD! Thanks to all well-wishers. "For this God, is our God forever & ever: He will be our guide even unto the end."
Francis Oke is also giving thanks to God for the miracle.
Ekitikan who described the vice president as his mentor said he is grateful it ended in praise. According to him, Osinbajo can boldly recite Psalm 116:8 which say: "For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling."
He added that Jesus told Osinbajo that "Peace to you, do not fear; you shall not die," in the helicopter crash and today he is hale and hearty.
Recall that months after the crash, Pastor Adeboye of the RCCG had said he had gotten a revelation from God about it.
He said he could not tell Osinbajo what God showed him so as not to provoke fear in the vice president.
According to him, after receiving the revelation, he prayed for two minutes asking God to avert the incident.
