THE PEACE IN BENUE IS A PROOF THAT GOD ANSWERS PRAYER -Osinbajo

Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has said that the return of peace in Benue is a proof that God answers prayers.

Professor Osinbajo said this while addressing congregants at the 15th National Biennial Delegate Conference of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) tagged `Benue-2019’ in Makurdi on Thursday.

He said the conference would not have come to realization if peace had not returned to the state.

Osinbajo, who started with a praise and worship song, acknowledged that it was God that spared his life in the recent helicopter crash.

“It is a special pleasure to be here; I have a special reason to be grateful to God; I bring to you very warm greetings from President Muhammadu Buhari for a successful conference,” he said.

“My reason for being excited is because Benue, in many senses, is a proof that God answers prayers; it is a proof that Nigeria is in the hands of God.

“I have been here on three previous occasions, to sympathise with flood victims, to attend funeral of priests and thirdly to visit Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) affected by the farmers/herders clash.

“All the three were occasions of mourning; of course, for those of us who know the history, Benue has had clashes, killings, farmers/herders clashes every year since 2011.

“Today, because of your prayers, prayers of saints, PFN is gathered here in a peaceful Benue,” he said.
