The founder of Christ Life Church, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, has defended Vice President Yemi Osinbajo from criticism, said he is the light in the midst of darkness in Aso Villa.
Bishop Francis Wale Oke spoke in reaction to opinions by some persons that the vice president was not representing the interest of Christians as expected in Buhari government.
Bishop Oke told The Nation:
“The point is it is easy to criticise. A lot of people don’t know the role that man is playing there. He is the ‘sole light’ in the midst of darkness in Aso Villa and he is doing his best”,
“On a personal level, he’s been there for four years without any scandal. He has carried himself with poise and dignity. His grasp of national issues, the analysis, the confidence with which he speaks, oh come on!
“Church, wake up and celebrate your hero and champion. On the two occasions on which he has acted as President, everybody knew everything was different. What else do you want him to do? He is not the President. There is a limit to the role of the vice president.
“He and the president are close because the President has found him trustworthy. We’ve had issues in this nation before where governor and deputy governor would be at each other’s throat.
“It was the same with the President and Vice President such that rather than getting busy with the administration of the country, they would be creating distraction. We don’t have that now. The man just wants to serve the nation. I give him kudos.”
