‘Nigeria Won’t Be In Mess If Osinbajo Was Presidential Candidate’ – Methodist Bishop


According to the United African Methodist Church’s Rt. Revd. Sam Bamgbose, if the political class had given Vice President Yemi Osinbajo the opportunity to lead the country as president, Nigeria’s current socioeconomic condition would not have emerged.
The Bishop made the remark during a funeral ceremony at the United African Methodist Church Catherdal in Ebute-Meta, Lagos, on Friday.

Bamgbose argued that what matters after man’s sojourn on earth is the impression that the person made in his or her community and in the lives of others while alive.

“Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is one Nigerian who has served his country wholeheartedly,” he says. Anything you’ve encountered on the course thus far

of your service to this nation, the Lord will see you through in Jesus’ name.”

Assuring Osinbajo of the Church’s continuous prayers and support, he said, “I am going to encourage you sir, it is not over until it is all over. Your time will come and we will all stand behind you. The grace of God will be behind you.

“We are proud of you, sir. You have done so wonderfully well. You have represented the church well, represented your community (the Yoruba race) well, and you have represented entire Nigeria well, in the few times/occasions when you had the grace to be vested with power. We knew what happened to our country, if you had been allowed to continue, we know that we would not be in this mess that we are experiencing today.”

Joined by other clergymen at the service, the cleric led a special prayer session for Osinbajo, God’s continuous guidance and protection, the entire nation and for the peaceful conduct of the 2023 election.

Asides from the presence of the vice president, present also was Chairman of the Board of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, (NCPC), Yemi Kasali.
