The Vice President expressed his gratitude on Tuesday while addressing State House correspondents after representing President Muhammadu Buhari at the virtual extraordinary session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government.

“This would have been the second anniversary of my passing on,” he told journalists on Tuesday, adding, “but as God ordained it, it is actually the second anniversary of thanksgiving”.

On February 2, 2019, a helicopter conveying the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, crash-landed in Kabba, but himself and his aides narrowly escaped death as they came out of the helicopter unhurt.

He was billed to launch the TraderMoni in Kabba and expected to visit Okene in the central axis of the state during the visit.
