Former presidential spokesperson, Dr. Doyin Okupe has gone spiritual over the recent open declaration by his son as a homosexual.
Okupe in his reaction said the situation is a spiritual challenge, adding that he had been aware for a while about his son’s sexual preference.
He noted that while he is opposed to homosexuality, he is looking beyond the physical and taking the entire situation as a spiritual challenge.
“My attention has been drawn to a publication of my 27yr old son, Bolu okupe, in which he declared publicly that he is Gay.”
“I gave him that name MOBA OLUWA RIN, ( I WALKED WITH GOD) because he was born at the time I gave my life to Christ.”
“I have been aware of this his new orientation for a while now. He knows that as a Christian and a witness for Christ (an evangelist), I am vehemently opposed to homosexuality as it runs contrary to the avowed precepts of my Christian faith.
“For me, I look beyond the surface or the physical. Here I see a major spiritual challenge ahead but I know as my God liveth, this whole saga will end up in praise to the Almighty Jehovah who I serve day and night.
“For it is written: Behold, the hand of the Lord is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is His ear dead that he cannot hear. Isaiah 59 vs 1,” the former presidential media aide tweeted in reaction.
