Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has debunked an online report claiming that his principal has resigned as a Pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
According to a statement issued on Wednesday, Akande maintained that his principal will continue to honour the call of God on his life by serving as a pastor in the RCCG, dismissing the report as “misleading and completely baseless.”
The statement read:
“Our attention has been drawn to a false publication by a certain online medium, 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.”
