Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday, May 31 formally took over the leadership of the villa chapel located inside Aso Rock, Abuja.
Leadership reports that Prof. Osinbajo attended service in the chapel for the first time accompanied by his wife, Dolapo;Bishop Wale Oke of the Sword of the Spirit Ministries; Senior Pastor, Living Waters Unlimited Church, Pastor Ladi Thompson and other clerics.
It was gathered that the vice-president did not only deliver a goodwill message to the congregation but also conducted the benediction.
He later proceeded to the children’s church where he prayed and took photographs with the children in the company of members of his entourage.
The Aso Villa Chapel was built by the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a place where the President or the Vice President that is a Christian worships.
If the president or his deputy is a Christian, he automatically becomes the political head, with the President’s or Vice President’s chaplain as the spiritual head.
Reports say Osinbajo was absent penultimate Sunday when former President Goodluck Jonathan had wanted to hand over the chapel to him.
