The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday, May 30, 2015, said that he was chosen by God to assist President Muhammadu Buhari to entrench justice, equity and accountability in Nigeria.

He spoke during a church service in his honour at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, which was attended by his? wife, Dolapo; mother and father-in-law as well as friends and well-wishers.

?Osinbajo ?said that he was convinced that God was planning to set things right and heal Nigeria through the new administration headed by Buhari and himself.

“?So, I thank the great and mighty God who has chosen me at this time by Himself to assist the President of this nation.

“His plan is to make Nigeria a nation that will be admired and respected among the nations of the earth by establishing integrity; by ensuring that corruption is eradicated and resources meant for all are not cornered by a few but are used according to law, justice and equity for the benefit of all.

“The Lord wants a nation ruled only in accordance with law and justice where the guilty are punished and the good rewarded.

“This links to President Muhammadu Buhari’s inaugural speech yesterday. Sure, you will agree that he emphasised these three clear designs of God”, the vice president said.

Delivering the sermon during the service, Bishop Wale Oke pointed out that those who honour God would be honoured by Him; and warned Osinbajo not to allow corrupt people around him in order not to be like Eli in the Holy Bible.

He said that the vice president’s career and reputation built over the years could go up in flames within seconds if he condones corruption or unholiness. ?

He said: “If you are corrupt, you cannot be a friend of God. We pray that you will enjoy the manifest of God all the days of your life.

“What others don’t have answer to a situation, God will reveal it to you. He will make you the Joseph of this administration.

“God will reveal the secret of the problems of Nigeria to you like Joseph and Daniel in the Holy Bible. Choose the way of Abraham and not that of Eli. With that, I believe generations unborn will celebrate you.

“The nation has a brilliant hope in the combination of you and Buhari, who is known for his uprightness.”?

Prayers were said for the number two citizen and his family, for the church, for the right choice of appointees, and for the nation while Osinbajo directed that the offering gathered during the service be donated to all the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in the country.?

Also at the service were the former Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, and his wife, Victoria; All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, John Oyegun, and his wife; representative of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Joseph Obayemi; and Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola.

There was also former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi; three former governors of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, Niyi Adebayo and Kayode Fayemi; and former Governor of old Abia State, Ogbonnaya Onu, among others.
