2015: Buhari Calls Adeboye For Blessings
Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) reportedly called the General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, for blessings.
According to Sahara Reporters, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate made a phone call soon after he announced Yemi Osinbajo as his running mate for the 2015 presidential elections.
It was disclosed by Buhari's aide that the famous Nigerian clergyman gave his blessing and wished the two APC members a successful election campaign.
It is worth mentioning that Osinbajo is a pastor at Adeboye’s church and one of his close confidants.

At the same time Adeboye for years has been associated with President Goodluck Jonathan, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate. He even attended the wedding of Jonathan’s foster daughter Faith.
Questions emerged right after Buhari's running mate announcement regarding whose side Adeboye might take ahead of the polls: his colleague's (APC) or Jonathan's (PDP).
It is believed that his endorsement can translate into millions of votes of Nigeria’s Christians.
