Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has described as ‘baseless and misleading’ – a news report insinuating that he had stepped down from his position as a shepherd of the flock in the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
A statement was released to this effect, on Wednesday, by Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant-Media & Publicity to the Vice President.
It reads: “Our attention has been drawn to a false publication by a certain online medium, IGBERETV, to the effect that Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has resigned as a Pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God.”
“The report is misleading and completely baseless. Prof. Osinbajo continues to serve as a Pastor in the RCCG, honoring the call of God on his life.”
“He is in fact the Pastor-in-Charge of RCCG Lagos Province 48, a position he has held in the past three years and in which he continues to serve.”
“This completely fabricated report should be ignored and disregarded in its entirety.”
