Former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has called on the church to always question the donations from politicians and other Nigerians to support evangelism.

Osinbajo made this call during the inaugural lecture in honour of the late senior pastor of Fountain of Life Church, Taiwo Odukoya,  on Saturday in Lagos.

He charged the church to inculcate good values that Christians in public service can hold on to.

“How often do those who receive money from politicians and from other sources ask the source of the money? the former vice-president asked.

“So, the question is not how many Christians are in government, business, or professions? The question is, what are they equipped with?

“What are the relevant principles of the gospel that they know and apply in their daily and professional or public lives?” he queried.

Professor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) is a Nigerian lawyer, professor, and politician who served as the 14th vice president of Nigeria from 2015 to 2023. A member of the All Progressives Congress, he previously served as Attorney General of Lagos State from 1999 to 2007 and holds the title of Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

Osinbajo also contested the 2023 APC presidential primaries, where he came third and lost to President Tinubu, the eventual winner.
