Osinbajo delivers Pastor Adeboye’s birthday lecture, says Christians can influence government policies

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Nigeria

The Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yemi Osinbajo, on Wednesday said Nigerians of the Christian faith have the power to influence government policies to ameliorate the suffering of the Nigerian people.

He stated this in Lagos while delivering a lecture organised to mark the 73rd birthday of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Enoch Adeboye.

The annual lecture series was sponsored by Triumphant Elders Consultative Forum of the Church.

In the lecture titled, “Harmonising Virtues to Gain Heaven and Earthly Prosperity,” Mr. Osinbajo said that Christian leaders have a duty to stand for the poor in the country.

“We have been placed in positions of greater significance. If we choose to, we have the power to influence government; to say to the government, why do we not have free health care for the poor?” he said.

“To say to government, why do we not have free education, to say to government why are you not providing for the elderly who are poor and for the disable who are poor?’’

The vice presidential candidate, who was also a pastor before delving into politics, said believers should live their lives for others as Christ exemplified, by dying for all to bring prosperity for all.

According to him, Christian leaders who sacrifice their personal ambitions for the good of others were sure to get earthly and heavenly prosperity.

Mr. Osinbajo stressed that true prosperity and significance could only come from a life of selfless and committed service to humanity.

He said, “Serving others is sacrifice of personal ambitions for the good of others. The sacrifice of personal ambitions is crucial and a way of greatness.’’

He recounted that Mr. Adeboye became highly influential because he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and abandoned all personal ambitions.

He said there was need to have integrity and that without it, there was no way believers could show leadership and attain significance.

“One of the big problems that we have in our nation today is an absence of integrity. It underlines every single failure of government,’’ he said.

The APC running mate asked Christian faithful not only to show love to their enemies but also take care of the vulnerable.

Mr. Adeboye in his response at the event praised the organisers and the guest speaker for honouring him with the lecture.

The cleric said, “I just want to thank the Triumphant Elders for organising this occasion, and I want to thank the guest speaker for bringing so much treasure into all of us.

“Whatever I am today is because of only one secret; somewhere along the line I met the Lord Jesus Christ and I surrendered my life unto him and He has done the rest.

“My advice to anyone that might be here who wants to become an influence in the society is give your life to Jesus Christ; that is the only secret.

“Jesus is the way out of problems, He is the way into joy and victory, He is the way forward, and He is the way upward. If you lift up Jesus Christ, He will promote you, and when Jesus is the one promoting you He promote you everlastingly.”

The convener, Tunji Onileaja, a pastor, had in his welcome address explained that the elders came up with the idea of an annual public lecture for Mr. Adeboye by divine inspiration.

“The Triumphant Elders (those above 70-years old), supported by some younger senior pastors by divine vision, joined to celebrate God in the life of our modern hero of the gospel,’’ he said.

Mr. Onileaja said rather than celebrating himself to mark his birthday, Mr. Adeboye had been celebrating God through the special Holy Ghost Services aimed at expanding God’s kingdom.

    Thank you Mr. Osinbajo for remembering the Nigerian poor in your prayer and social practice as exemplified in the lecture you gave. That is the distinguishing feature of the Christian, NOT any other thing. May the Lord almighty our God Bless you and your family mightily as you hopefully assume that public service once again to put your God given talents, resources, mind, body and brain to serve the poor and lift them up as our Lord Jesus counsels. This call to serve the poor is total and final for some of us. And May God Bless you bountifully as you answer HIS call to put yourself and your talents in service of HIS people-the neglected among us. May you not Look back. Our God is with you. He is your strength. We are solidly behind you and your service to the poor.


    Adeboye allowed a political candidate to deliver a message on his behalf and has the audacity to write nonsense on his facebook page according to Punch that politician should stay away from politics?
    I think his old age is involved or is it the Yoruba factor?

    • Okey

      You either work for politicians in cash or in kind. You can collect money to do their bidding or donate your staff to do their bidding. Either way, the church is contaminated. The only decent, honourable way is to ask your your staff / pastors to stay clear and only limit themselves to casting their votes on election day. Therefore, any G.O. who has donated his pastors to politicians either as running mates or fund-raising treasurers / managers, should withdraw them now because of the same wrought of God.

    • Do you mean that a life long pastor should cease to be a pastor because he got a God-bestowed political post which he did not apply for? What jungle law is that?

    “One of the big problems that we have in our nation today is an absence
    of integrity
    It underlines every single failure of government,’’
    says Pastor Yemi Oshibajo.

    One way for the APC party to start solving this lack of integrity epidemic is this:

    Agreed. So, one way for the APC party to start
    solving this ‘lack of integrity’ epidemic is this:

      “And now the conclusion seems to be inescapable in Nigeria
      that what we have as leaders in politics, business, and in the
      civil service, are common thieves in high places.

      The rot is so deep that stealing is now in the family system,
      in the religious system; even in friendly and social clubs.
      Everybody is looking for somebody else to steal from.

      The day our leaders decide they don’t need James Ibori’s
      kind of wealth or Cecilia Ibru’s kind of property acquisition,
      that a good name is better than material acquisition;
      and that leadership at the end of the day,
      is about people and leaving a place better
      than you met it, is the day Nigeria will begin
      a positive walk into sanity and propriety. Until then,
      Nigeria is just a nation of common thieves.”

        “Under the watch of Goodluck Jonathan, government has become legalised and protected
        robbery. Before the presidential election in 2011, Jonathan surreptitiously invited Bola Tinubu,
        lifting him at night by presidential aircraft from Lagos to Abuja to hatch a plan for Bola Tinubu
        to support one PDP presidential candidate (Jonathan), at the expense of all other PDP candidates
        for any office in Lagos state.

        If in the past corruption was in the corridors of power, it would seem now to be in the sitting room,
        dining room and bedroom of power. Whatever amount of money was given to Bola Tinubu to procure
        votes for (PDP) in the 2011 presidential election election in Lagos state was, to say the least,
        unnecessary. What made this phenomenon particularly bad was that government had raised
        the money from government transactions which fuel corruption.”

          @ Evangelist,

          What’s the difference between Yemi Osinbajo; and, a dyed-in-the-wool Jihadist, like Tola Kasali?
          The only difference is that Tola Kasali goes to a mosque, and, Yemi Osinbajo goes to a church –
          but besides that fact, there is no difference at all, insofar as Tola Kasali declares Muslim supremacy,
          and, Yemi Osinbajo supinely agrees to it without objection for his own personal benefits.

            The blackmailers have invaded this arena.The only headache they have is Buhari,i can see them running a mock soon.

          • Okey

            If you are of normal bodily constitution and have any modicum of honour and dignity, there is absolutely no way you would find honour in rediculing another Nigerian whose “sin” is being a regular comentator as you are (In fact, I copied from you). The duty of a sensible commentator is to disprove an assertion as false if you are in disagreement. But when logic and reasoning fail one, anarchical guttering becomes his response.

            On “Sai Buhari,” I know for sure that you are in your mid- or late 20s and therefore know very little about characters and antecedents, that being the case, I will only enjoin you to first, “look, ruminate and act” with the following:

            “Between 1983 and 1985, Peter Onu of Nigeria was Acting Secretary-General of the OAU. At
            the 1985 Summit in Addis Ababa, statesmen like Julius Nyerere, President of Tanzania, lobbied for his election as substantive Secretary-General. However, there was a major stumbling block to Peter Onu’s candidature: his Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, was campaigning against him.

            Buhari claimed: “This generation of Nigerians and indeed future generations have no other country than Nigeria.” But when the crunch came, his allegiance to Nigeria disappeared. In the election of the OAU Secretary-General in 1985, Buhari voted against Nigeria and for Niger instead. He secured the election of Ide Oumarou, a Fulani man from Niger; as opposed to an Igbo man from Nigeria. By so doing, Buhari became the first and only Head of State in the history of modern international relations to vote against his country in favour of his tribe.”

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            How old are you, Okey?

            It seems you spend your time online wondering which contributors are feminine and their ages!

            Do you think these attributes have a bearing on the cerebral capabilities of people who contribute to the discussions?

            Learn to respect people for the content of their characters not their gender or ages.

            By the way, I am almost certainly older than you.

          • Okey

            You can never be older. Certainly, you of the “Lol” generation.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            If you state so, but have you heard the term ‘re-invent’ before?

          • Okey

            No, I have not. What I hear you use is “Change.” And I know that a move from the sick-bed to Mortuary is CHANGE and a profound one at that.

  • Redeemed Church of Satan for I


    The Lord Jesus Christ is the TRUTH.

    If Prof Osinbajo is truly a Christian and a follower of the Lord Jesus then he must demand that Nigerian Army Private Mohammadu Buhari tell the truth about his WASC by simply authorizing Cambridge Assessment to publish his WASC result without further delay.

    He should also demand an explanation from Buhari for the forged result released by the Government Secondary School, Katsina.

    This is the minimum expected of a Christian who claims to represent Christ.

    Forward Nigeria …….. GEJ Forever !!!

    • Otile

      Is this the Devil’s work or does our brother Yemi Osinbajo have no respect for the truth, or respect for God? For an anointed one of God to close his mind to the truth in order to serve mortal man, is a sin crying to God in heaven.

      • Odogwu

        It is you that is actually the devil.

Still can’t fathom it.

  • burning spear

    after he had used amaechi to insult pastors in the house of God–now yearns to pretend that he is not part of the game—that used Amaechi to insult his fathers in the lord–do these people have conscience at all in APC

  • Evangelist Emmanuel

    Yemi Osinbajo as i see him….

    In his public life in politics he’s been barnacled to perjurers; first as poodle for 15 years to Alhaji Bola Tinubu
    a plea bargained drugs running accused criminal on U.S court records, and now he’s sent on fool’s errand
    as side-kick to General Buhari who’s looking like a perjurer without a school certificate. If indeed Yemi Osinbajo
    is a Christian Pastor led by the Holy Spirit he should not be associated with any of these things.

    For the Holy Bible says: • “Let those who love the LORD hate evil…”

    Nowhere does the Holy Bible ask Christian faithfuls to reconcile or compromise with evil for personal benefits
    that might be found in it by so doing. Lies-telling and false witnessing are scriptural evils. I simply do not see
    the signs of the Holy Spirit supposedly leading Pastor Yemi Osinbajo. That’s my own opinion.

    • Otile

      God bless you Evangelist Emmanuel, your comment is most touching. I pray that our brother Yemi Osinbajo will read i it and turn back to follow the way of God before he brings eternal damnation to himself. It is sorrowful to see this man sacrifice his anointing to demon for the sake of APC worldly kingdom, kingdom presided over by the evil one.

    • Onyeoma

      You need help! when has contesting for a political position becomes a sin? A true Christian leader does not choose for his members just as God does not force his will on human. Hence, Pastor Adeboye can not stop Professor Osinbajo from campaigning. He can only advise him against campaigning if God reveals such to him.

      • Okey

        Onyeojoo, and God has reveaved to him that what Amaechi said was true ? And God has told him that even if a pastor collects money to mobilise voters for a candidate, he, Adegboye, should sit in judgment ?

        If, as you said, he Adegboye cannot sit in judgment over two senior members of his church – Osinbanjo, running mate to, and Ben Akubueze who is a chief funds mobilizer for Buhari – then it is absolutely insulting to human intelligence to place cause on other pastors who are not his members. And these two men still retain their active pastorship in the church where they preach “corruption in government at the centre” and “none in Lagos State Government” where, instructively, both pastors served for 8 years as Commissioners.

        Please, to me, religion is not an opium. I should discern whem my pastor is playing undercover political support for any political party or candidate.

Tunisia voted 88 years as President after the revolution and stated reason as maturity, leadership and experience. GMB was Military Governor of old Borno State, he was Minister of Petroleum, he Commamded the Third Batalion Rukuba, Jos where he personally led Nigerian troops to repeal the Chadian Rebels during Shagari and then became Head of State, Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces. I do not know how old both of you are, but Buhari handled corruption to the satisfaction of the Majority of Nigerians and brought sanity at the bus stops, airports, banks, and many walk of life, period.

    QUESTION.. : What’s your position on Boko haram?
    BOKOHARI.. : I have said it before, and I say it again, Imam Shekau is a good man. FG shud grant him amnesty like the Niger Delta

    Prof, you must use the opportunity to clear the air on the N6 billion your campaign manager, Amaechi, said was given to church leaders by PDP. It is being alleged that your G.O. benefited from the largesse.

    Men of God are involving themselves in this year’s politics because it’s very crucial. The lives of Christians are
