Nigeria’s immediate past Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has been honoured with a thanksgiving service at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Olive Tree Church Thanksgiving in Ikoyi, Lagos State.

The Sunday Thanksgiving Service held in his honour was to thank God for Prof Osinbajo, having served the nation, Nigeria, meritoriously for eight years.

Prof Osinbajo who attended the programme with his wife, Dolapo, and other family members, as he reflected “on eight years of faithful service,” said, “God’s grace has guided us, and we are grateful for the abundant blessings that have unfolded along the way.”

Recalled before he became the Vice President in 2015, Prof Osinbajo was a Provincial Pastor at RCCG.

Before he emerged as Nigeria’s No 2, Pastor Osinbajo was in charge of RCCG Jesus Centre and was later transferred to be the head of the Lagos Province 48 (Olive Tree provincial headquarters), Banana Island, Ikoyi.

Over the period he presided over the province, the church focused on building people’s lives to pursue purposeful endeavours in Christ.

Under his supervision, the church enjoyed unusual grace and favour, which culminated in the building of 10 Kingdom ministries to cater to different areas of human life.
