After a keenly contested presidential election, Gen Muhammadu Buhari and his running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, emerged the winners, defeating the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Osinbajo is a pastor of the Olive Tree House of Prayer for All Nations in Banana Island, a Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG) parish.
His church held a send-off for him on Sunday, April 5.
On December 17, 2014, the presidential candidate of the APC, Buhari announced Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as his running mate and vice-presidential candidate during the 2015 general polls.
When Buhari picked Oisnbajo as his running mate, many were of the opinion that he chose him because of his position as an RCCG pastor, which would grant him favour with Christians.
A pastor of the RCCG, Bribena Efiye, had noted that the APC had chosen Osinbajo as their vice-presidential candidate to give the illusion that Pastor E.A. Adeboye, G.O. of RCCG is supporting Buhari’s election bid.
