Former aide to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Dr. Adedoyin Ajibike Okupe, popularly known as Doyin Okupe has made known his thoughts known on his son openly admitting he is gay.
One of his many sons, Bolu Okupe announced on his Instagram page that “I’m gay AF.”
In the post, the 27-year-old France-based fitness guru was seen wearing a rainbow-coloured nicker while holding an LGBTQ flag.
His father, Doyin said, “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,” he said.
He said, “This is also my son Dewunmi Okupe, one of Bolu Okupe’s five other brothers. I love all the children God has given me, Bolu inclusive. I pray for them to excel in their fields of endeavours. Bolu will still be celebrated on this wall, in Nigeria and globally, in the name of Jesus.”
He added, “Bolu is not a criminal. He lives in France where homosexuality is not a crime. His present mindset and sexual orientation do not conform to Christian doctrine which I hold to with my life. But I am certain that with the boldness he has made his declaration, he will still use the same attribute to serve God and boldly declare His Glory in Christ Jesus. Mark my words.”
