My Son’s Gay Status a Spiritual Challenge – Doyin Okupe
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Dr Doyin Okupe, former Presidential Spokesperson has said his son’s decision to go public about his gay status is a spiritual challenge.

The former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs disclosed this in a series of tweets on his official Twitter handle while reacting to a trending photo of his son, Bolu wearing rainbow boxers with the caption, Yes, I am gay”.

Okupe said that as an evangelist, he would never accept homosexuality as it is against the Christian values.

He, however, expressed home that God would intervene, noting that he had been aware of his son’s sexual preference for a while.

He two-time presidential aide tweeted, “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 his new orientation for a while now. As a Christian and a witness for Christ (an evangelist), he knows that 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. 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.”
