Atiku, Ben Bruce, Fayose react to helicopter crash involving Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

We had earlier reported that a chopper carrying Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, crashed landed in Kabba, Kogi State. The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday, February 2, joined Nigerians in expressing happiness that the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, survived a helicopter crash on his way to Kogi state.

In a very short reaction, Atiku, who posted on his social media handle, said:

“Dear vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, I just received news of the crash of your helicopter in Kabba, Kogi state. I am happy to note, however, that all is well with you and your delegation.”

Ben Bruce the senator representing Bayelsa East at the National Assembly on the other hand wrote:

“So glad VP Yemi @ProfOsinbajo is safe. I wish him well and want him to stay alive so we can all work together as patriots to get this nation on the road to greatness.

“We may be in different parties and support different candidates, but he is first and foremost a human being.”

Reacting to the incident also, the immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, congratulated Osinbajo and thanked God for sparing the vice president.

“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, the sanctity of life goes beyond politics and I pray that God will continue to safeguard his life,” Fayose said.
