This is the 2nd near death experience via a helicopter crash that @ProfOsinbajo has had. Once Is an accident. Twice is not a coincidence. It is a pattern. Osinbajo better watch his back! I know that some see him as an obstacle to becoming President in 2023 #OsinbajoWatchYourBack pic.twitter.com/CwrSwtI7FQ

If this crash-landing of Osinbajo’s chopper involved the PDP, our APC propagandists like Ogundamisi and El-Rufai would’ve already cheekily attributed it to a curse or an atonement for their sins. This is the danger of such thinking, such trivializing of things beyond our control.

Breaking: This looks very much like VP Osinbajo’s helicopter, which just lost control and crashed in Kabba stadium. Occupants were rescued according to sources & no one got hurt. God sure warns ahead. #GraceEnough #SeekPenance @rccghq pic.twitter.com/10cAtNr0xH

I rejoice with VP Yemi Osinbajo and thank God for keeping him alive today. I wish him quick recovery from whatever minor injuries he could have sustained in the crash.
For me, sanctity of life goes beyond politics and I pray that God will continue to safeguard his life.

VP Osinbajo will need a very quite moment tonight just to ask himself one question; what if…

While you wish death to Pastor Osinbajo, there are 9 million mothers whose school kids are fed daily by him, 500,000N-Power Graduates employed, 2million market women supported by his Trader Moni. These women cried for help,and God used Osinbajo.

So this is the second time Osinbajo escaped a chopper crash, the first was 8 months ago in Abuja. Is it the same chopper? If no, why are the choppers so disaster prone? pic.twitter.com/Izwj9KEaOe
