A former presidential aide and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Doyin Okupe said
Okupe’s son Mobolurin came out to publicly announce his orientation as gay on his Instagram page. The announcement has sent not a few shocks to those who knew him and his conservative christian background.
But his father in response said what happened to his son was beyond the physical but a deep spiritual battle.
“The picture below is that of Mobolurin Okupe. He is my son. I gave him the 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.
Okupe 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 Jehova who i serve day and night.”
Bolu Okupe, a gay activist, content creator and YouTuber posted a picture of himself, bare-chested, drabbing the rainbow flag and wearing a rainbow shorts.
Bolu, a graduate of Masters of Science in International Management from the NEOMA Business School in France currents resides in the country where there are liberal laws supporting his sexual orientation.
