Contrary to reports by an online news platform which reported that the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) has stepped down from his position as a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the VP has responded to the insinuation describing it as ‘misleading and baseless’.
The VP responded to the report through a statement released on Wednesday by Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant-Media & Publicity to the Vice President in a bid to clear the air on the misleading report.
“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, honouring 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.” The statement read in full.
