Dr. Doyin Okupe, a spokesman for former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan insists his son’s decision to openly declare himself a homosexual is a spiritual challenge.
According to a series of tweets in reaction to a viral photo showing his son, Bolu, wearing rainbow boxers with the caption, Yes, I am gay”. Okupe said as an evangelist, he would never accept homosexuality as it is at variance with Christian values.
He, however, said he was hopeful that God would intervene, adding that he had been aware of his son’s sexual orientation for quite some time.
The former Presidential aide tweeted, “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.
