The President of Nigeria, Mr Muhammadu Buhari has prayed for the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, to live long and be in good health as he survived a helicopter crash over the weekend.
In a short note to his running mate, the President wrote:
We give glory to Almighty God for sparing your life. I’m impressed by your tenacious spirit which enabled you to continue on your campaign engagement, despite the shock of the crash.
It takes tenacious spirit and amazing spiritual strength to survive a helicopter crash without being paralyzed by its impact. I’m proud of our partnership and your unalloyed loyalty and your commitment to the service of Nigeria.
That you proceeded with your engagements, despite the accident, is a testimony of your passion for service to country and a reflection of your admirable spiritual fervour.
May God continue to protect you and and all those on board with you, bless your lives and grant you more good health and long life to serve our country even more.
