Many a prominent pastor have issued failed prophecies and consequently suffered ridicule for their words. But Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) knows that one pastor whose pronouncements are priceless. As a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Banana Island, Ikoyi, he never took his calling as a racket nor did he ever seek to court cheap acclaim via expensive, phony prophecies.
According to him, “In 1993, I came to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Apapa Parish, where Pastor Tony was pastoring. I was in a workers group. Guess what he named that workers group? Government! It was prophetic – unbelievable, the number of us who actually went into government.… Oby Ezekwesili was in the same group. She, of course, became Minister in two different departments… The prophetic word had gone forth.”
