The vice president has said he would rather vacate his office than compromise his faith as a Christian.

Yemi Osinbajo while speaking on Tuesday, May 15, at the stakeholders’ meeting held at the new Banquet Hall of the Benue State Government House, Makurdi said no circumstance will make himgive up his faith.

Osinbajo made the statement while reacting to a speech by the Catholic Bishop of Gboko, His Lordship Williams Avenya.

Avenya had reminded the vice president that President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 campaign promised never to Islamise Nigeria.

He said Buhari promised to protect the interest of all Nigerians including citizens of minority ethnic groups if voted into power.

“The point I’m trying to make is that a day is going to come when you, as the Vice-President, will bear the brunt of that problem of injustices in our land, especially those perpetrated on smaller ethnic groups that have no one to fight for them.

“So, as a Christian person, exonerate yourself from this situation,” Avenya said.

Responding to the Bishop, Osinbajo said: “My Lord Bishop, you said you are not a politician, I am also not a politician."

"As a matter of fact, I’m also a priest and I’m a Christian, a born again Christian. Because I’m a born again Christian, my destiny is not determined by any man but by God who I serve.

“Let me assure you that under no circumstances, none whatsoever, will I give up my faith or refuse to stand up for my faith.

“You can take that to the bank. Even the position that I currently occupy, I did not ask for it and I’m prepared to leave it at a short notice.

“It doesn’t mean anything. I became a born again Christian after I became a professor, a professor of the law of evidence, a professor of proof," the vice president noted.
