A former Presidential Spokesman, Doyin Okupe, says he knows about his son’s gay status, VANTAGE NEWS reports.
Okupe, who served under former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, said as an evangelist, he is opposed to homosexuality.
He said this in a series of tweets while reacting to a viral photo posted by his son and captioned, “Yes, I am gay.”
The former presidential spokesman said that he sees the situation as a spiritual challenge.
Doyin said, “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 Jehova who i serve day and night.
