Dec 17, 2014 – Photos: Buhari & Redeemed Church, RCCG Pastor Running Mate, Yemi Osinbajo Pose Together

Meet Professor Yemi Osibanjo, a Pastor at RCCG that was announced today as the running mate of APC presidential aspirant Buhari.

Yemi Osibanjo, a current Professor at the University Of Lagos Law Faculty and ex-Lagos Attorney General & Justice Commissioner is a full-time Pastor of Redeemed Christian Church of God.

His name was announced at APC National Secretariat in Abuja this afternoon.

Buhari told reporters that he sought counsel from people within APC and outside before picking Osibanjo. He describe him as a man of wisdom and impeccable integrity.

Check out photos of the two below:

Stature-wise, they are word and opposite but in terms of wisdom they are both compatible.

Let’s see how this unfolds.

      Osi doesn’t mean poverty in Ijebu land. It means the deity of the land. And going by the name Osibanjo, it means the deity surrounds me. Before you open your mouth to say shit, do a research first.

    ok. i see. some of you are just use to poverty and difficulty. Please go and check ur bible. read about the physical and other features of the people that God used. Does height or age has anything to do here? or you are looking for compatible political robber has we have been having? Please let someone from outside (Political Corridor) try it this time around. God is about to deliver Nigeria. You will all soon see wonders. Current administration has wasted alot of Nigeria funds on unrealistic issues. Like, Boko haram ammunition without result, Sure P ( ghost workers) , Electricity ( still unstable), unfinished contracts. Enough is Enough. Good foods are not always taste sweet. If we citizen are serious, pleas let us try these two religious fanatic.

    My confident and hope in General Mohammad Buari determination to deliver the dividends of democracy to over 170 millions suffering Nigerians has been fortified with this announcement. This shows clearly that the setbacks, economic failure, corruption and insecurity of the past six years under president Jonathan will soon become things of the past. Nigerian youths from the six geographic regions of the country should be proactive and get actively involved in the upcoming election processes so that our nation sinking ship can be rescue from total collapse due president Jonathan leadership failure, corruption, mismanagement, money laundering operations, insecurity, mass murder of innocent children, fathers and mothers; and most importantly, imcompentence of the highest order.

    I want to congratulate General Buari, professor Yemi Odinbanjo, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Gov. Okorocha, Gov. Rotimi Ameachi, all APC delegates across Nigeria, and most importantly, Nigerian people that have been calling for a change of government and direction after six years of president Jonathan’s setbacks and total failure. It is also clear now that General Mohammad Buari will surely and easily emerge as Nigerian next president after the 2015 general election. He and His Running mate – professor Osinbanjo will win overwhelmingly all the 19 northern states by over 98% votes; he will surely win all the Southwest states of Yorubas including Edo state, Delta state and Rivers state by over 98%. General Buari will also win Imo state because of great achievements and popularity of governor Okorocha. If the election is conducted in a free and fair manner, president Jonathan will be disgraced and humiliated by great Nigerian people from the north to the south of our beloved nation. Dr. of Zoology had almost six years to deliver but he has failed our people miserably. His failures as Nigerian president of the past six years know no boundaries, he has failed suffering Nigerian people regardless of their tribes, language, culture and religious. We cannot do the same things over and over again and expect a different results. General Buari is the most qualified candidate for the position of presidency after many setbacks, economic disaster, and insecurity posed by evildoers called Boko Haram. He is a man of great characters, highly competent for the job of Commander in Chief, very experience, a man of great vision, and most importantly, very patriotic Nigerian. We must shun tribalism and religious intolerance on election day, and cast our previous votes for this winning tickets. I believe that these two great Nigerian citizens will deliver the dividends of democracy and give us good governance. Once again, congratulations to all Nigerians because real and positive change is coming to our beloved nation.

    For those of yo talking about height and stature of that man Bezo and co beware. there are many tall and foolish people in this world who cannt do anything tangible. My exboyfriend left me because of my short height. and marry a tall woman what happened later in the marriage the tall woman dealt with him by tormenting his life slapping him no money in hand. she snatch all his money.

    The guy left the woman relocated and about getting married to another woman became distress started calling and begging me with apologies but too late because a handsome rich man came got married to me with beautiful grown up children while this guy has none. The tall woman gave him no children.

    So Bezo and other stop condemning height. What a short man or woman can do only few tall men or men can do that. Look at Korea, China Asian countries how many tall people are there yet China with many short people a giant nation producing all sorts and you Nigerians rush for them. So watch your words and pray for the man. He is a professor and a powerful man of God so god knows why he sent Buhari to him.

    Fellow Nigerians, can we wake up and smell the coffee. It is not how big your physical is but how well your brain is functioning and how smart you are. African people with our primitive idea. If that man happens to be president Obama, you will change your taught about him. Listen, nobody taught President Obama will emerge winner of democrat primary and he even defeated Hilary Clinton during their primary election. American technocrats picked that guy because they knew is going to perform and bring his best towards restructure that Country. Do you think Americans are so stupid to pick up a Black man as their president? I respect the nomination of this man, those who nominate this man know more about his track record. This man is a professor who has trained other professors. Let us throw our support behind this fellow in order to have positive changes.

    @ all Forum for those talking about the height of the VP. How on earth will you judge a man’s intelligence by his height. North Koreans, Chinese are short people, Yet China controls American economy. Now I know you guys are so used to poverty and you just want to perpetually remain in that state. You need a Tall criminal and u rebuff a short savior.
    @ Uzzy. u said this man is dirty, I can picture how filthy so are for real @ Grace Peter, I see a lot of sense in you and I see you progressing in all ur endeavors @ omo kehinde you are on point. @ Nigeria my ur source know no lack. But Bezo no wonder you are still hustling, U think this is a game and everything is funny. Its will be too late when u will be serious in life and will be a rap for you.

      Thank you Mr. Yomi, this is a best reply for those that have eyes, but they can’t see, they have ear but they can’t hear. They are people without vision and Mission except follow- follow, carry away by sentiment.

      BUHARISM/OSIBANJO is already working, your statement it “can’t work” is already an error, a failure and statement in futility. By GOD GRACE you will live long to witness the working and also enjoy the result.

    @Pelumi Israel, OSI in yoruba means the left hand side chief to a king while Otun means the right hand side chief to a king. It is a royal title in yoruba land. I hope you are a yoruba man/woman but it is a shame you don’t even understand your own language and you are full of negative ideas. Please, change you thought and think like a rational human being.I don’t have to bother you to go through The Prof’s CV because if you can’t understand your own language, how could you understand English?

    No one has comment on the real issue here.
    In a bid to get people’s vote, a man who is chose
    by God (or man) will abandone his call to serve God, but take call to serve men.
    If at the real of affair, this man virtualy become VP, (which i am very sure he will be dropped should APC win come 2015), with the level of currupt people behind him, will he not be currpt ?.
    No one is a saint, but when a man is called by God to serve him, i do not think it is right for the man leave that call and answer the call of men.
    Meanwhile, it is left for Nigerians to decide who will be or will not, any party that will win, surely it will be same story, Until this generation passe away, we will never see good democracy in Nigeria, only abuse of power, office and max looting.
    You that is commenting here, what are you teaching your child/children ?. If we must build a better Nigeria together, we must start teaching our children how to be a good person in life.

      So if a man is being called by GOD, does that means he should not render his service to humanity?, the called of a man by GOD; majorly is to serve HIS creatures; Human being and even to treat non human being well. To me if you are a man of GOD your responsibility is to correct all abnormalities that are being perpetrated by man of devil.

    @ Jacob Flow God bless you for your insightful contribution.Bezo is always a controversial person. You don’t talk because you want to talk. Those that are judging Prof cum Pastor forgot the story of David in the Holy Bible. God is not interested in our status and that is why God is ready to turn things around for the good of this country in 2015 general elections.
    I want to say Congratulations to GMB, APC and the entire Nigerians that the most needed CHANGE is here because our God is so much interested in this country Nigeria.
    As for GEJ and PDP, their time is up!

    I really wonder why General Buhari would also want to adopt a ‘Pastor’ as his running mate in the midst of generality of politicians in Nigeria. There is more to this. He is a core Islamic fundamentalist.

    I request also for Prof Yemi to sincerely pray and be convinced that it is God that is leading him.One thing I know is that there is no marriage between State and the Church and any such always lead to corruption of the church (consider what happened between the church and the Roman Government during the reign of Emperor Constantine)

    Besides, King David has this to say: Ps 26: 4-5: ‘I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers: and will not sit with the wicked’

    In the light of the above, I will request Daddy Adeboye to once again pray and counsel his Pastor right before he makes this life time mistake. 99% of APC leadership is Muslim. How can he prevail and maintain his faith under this condition?. I think this is truly being unequally yoked and unholy marriage.

      January 13, 2015 at 10:52 AM

      “No marriage between Church and state” but there is marriage between CAN president; (Oristajefor & some corrupt pastor) and GEJ in carrying Nigeria Money to part of the world in the name of buying Arms.
      “No marriage between Church and state” and many pastors tell GEJ to knee down and prayed for him when he is looking for position and always asked him to read from holy book when he goes to church and so on. Yet NO MARRIAGE
