A former Presidential Adviser, Doyin Okupe has expressed discontent over his son’s decision to openly declare himself a homosexual on social media.
Bolu had posted a picture of himself wearing only rainbow boxers with the caption; “Yes, I am gay”.
The viral post gave rise to mixed reactions,. But reacting to the post, Okupe, in a series of tweets said his son’s decision to openly declare self gay is a spiritual challenge for the family who brought him up with Christian values.
Okupe, who served under former President Olusegun Obasanjo, said he had been aware of his son’s sexual orientation for quite some time but never accepted it as it is against his Christian values.
“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”

However Okupe is hopeful that God will intervene in Bolu”s life and put an end to the lifestyle.
“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.”
