Bolu Okupe, son of Nigerian Former Presidential Aide, Doyin Okupe, has declared that he is a gay.
He made the revelation via his Instagram page on Wednesday when he shared a photo of himself in a rainbow-coloured shorts with a rainbow flag behind him.
“Yes, I’m Gay AF,” he captioned the picture.
Reacting on Thursday, Bolu’s father who served under former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, insinuated that what is happening to his 27-year-old son is a ‘spiritual’ challenge.
He acknowledged that he was aware that his son is homosexual and expressed hope that “this whole saga will end up in Praise to the Almighty Jehovah.”
“My attention has been drawn to a publication of my 27yr old son, Bolu okupe, in which he declared publicly that he is Gay. I gave him that 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.
“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,” Okupe tweeted.
