The Presidency on Wednesday said there was no truth in a recent media report that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had resigned as a pastor in The Redeemed Christian Church of God.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice-President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, gave the clarification in a statement made available to journalists.
Akande said despite being the Vice-President, Osinbajo would continue to serve as a pastor in honour of the call of God on his life.
He said the Vice-President remained the pastor of a parish of the RCCG in Lagos which he has been leading in the past three years.
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a false publication by a certain online medium to the effect that the 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.”
