Strong support came the way of Doyin Okupe on Friday from Nigerians after he came out to acknowledge his son, Bolu who outed himself as a homosexual. Indeed many have pledged to join Okupe in war for his homosexual son.
Okupe in owning up his son, however, strongly rebuffed his sexual orientation which he saw as a departure from the Christian faith he, Bolu was born and raised in.
Dr. Okupe said he saw the development as a spiritual challenge which he said he would fight with the Lord as His banner.
GWG had reported that Bolu announced his sexual homosexual status on Thursday.
Dr. Okupe, who served as presidential aide in the Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan administrations said:
“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.
“For it is written: Behold, the hand of the Lord is not shortened that it cannot save, neither is His ear deaf that he cannot hear. Isaiah 59 vs 1.”
Reacting to this development, some social media users took to their accounts to join the former presidential aide to ask for the intervention of God in the issue. GWG gathers some of their views below:
