On August 2015, during the public presentation of a book titled: – ‘Pastor E.A Adeboye: His Life And Calling’ Acting President of Nigeria,
Professor Yemi Osinbajo said “I consulted with Daddy and he gave me the go ahead to accept the Vice Presidential position – I was not a politician, before then”
This all took place at the Redemption Camp on Lagos-Ibadan. The acting President also stated that, he had also consulted his wife, Dolapo Osinbajo (granddaughter of former Nigerian Statesman and Nationalist, Chief Obafemi Awolowo).
The chairman of the occasion was, former President Olusegun Obasanjo. The former President, described Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, as a man of God who has touched more lives than many politicians.
Chief Obasanjo also disclosed the fact that, Pastor Adeboye, is a true man of God whom, he had benefited from because, he had previously consulted the pastor regarding his plans, before contesting the 1999 election.
At that very moment, the PDP (The Peoples Democratic Party) maintained that, Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo was a figurehead, since they believed him incapable of running the government. They stated that, the acting President was so inept, he constantly needed President Buhari`s approval (President Muhammadu Buhari, has been on medical leave, since May 7th 2017) for each decision he`s made, concerning the country or the 9 new political appointments he recently put in place.
