The helicopter conveying the Vice-President and his entourage crash-landed in Kabba, Kogi state on Saturday, February 2, 2019.
Speaking at an All Progressives Congress (APC) rally in Ekiti state, the Vice-President said God spared his life because of his desire to serve Nigerians.
Daily Post reports that he said “God delivered me from the crash because he wants me to work, that is what he called me to do and that is what we will do.
“Three things Buhari will do include creation of jobs for the youths, this is why we are doing all we are doing. The Lagos -Ibadan railway is coming to Ekiti and it will bring a lot of jobs. You have also heard of the Ado-Ekiti dual carriage way which we are doing, that will also create jobs.
“The creation of job creation for university graduates was why we established N-Power, this individuals are empowered with computers that are activated with educational materials. Now we are increasing N-Power to 1.5m so as they are completing NYSC they have something to do.
“We all heard they sold NEPA to different companies in 2015 and some can’t buy meters reasons they are sending estimated billing and can’t provide transformers but Buhari is willing to allow people distribute the power. When this is done there will be light for Nigerians and this is what we will do in NEXT LEVEL.
“All artisans will start getting money under the scheme of People MoneyBank to create jobs for Nigerians. This People Money Bank is a new scheme for people willing to create jobs and it will be felt in Ekiti.”
Many Nigerians wished the Vice-President well and also thanked God for saving him from the crash.
An investigation has also been launched to ascertain the cause of the accident, despite the claim by Caverton Helicopter, owners of the chopper, that the crash was caused by bad weather.
