How Osinbajo Made Buhari Call ‘Jesus’ 4 Times In 2019 – Femi Adesina

2 min read

Former presidential aide, Femi Adesina, has revealed how former Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo made the former president, Muhammadu Buhari called Jesus four times in 2019.




He made this claim while playing down the likelihood of Buhari being a bigot.

Adesina recalled how Buhari, who is a Muslim, called the name of Jesus four times after former Osinbajo survived a helicopter crash.

He disclosed this in his recently launched book titled: ‘Working with Buhari: Reflections of A Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023).’

According to Adesina: “The Vice President survived a helicopter crash in 2019. The President publicly rejoiced with him, and then at the next Federal Executive Council meeting, he congratulated the VP again.

“Jocularly, he said: ‘I can imagine that when the chopper crashed with a bang, VP as a pastor must have shouted, Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! And fortunately, Jesus was not far away, so He saved him’.




“We all laughed. But one instructive lesson. Bigots don’t like Jesus. They never want to hear His name, or attribute anything miraculous to Him.




“Buhari, a bigot? I beg, comot for road, make I pass. It is said that as a military commander, he gave opportunity for Muslim soldiers to observe the jummah on Fridays, and Christian soldiers were allowed to go to church on Sundays.




“A bigot would allow Muslims and pretend that Christians didn’t exist.”




In February 2019, a helicopter conveying Osinbajo crashed-landed in the Kabba area of Kogi State.
