Doyin Okupe, a former presidential aide, has reacted to the revelation by his son Bolu, who revealed on Thursday that he is gay.
He made this known on his Instagram page even as he shared a photo of himself in rainbow-coloured shorts with a rainbow flag behind him.
Alongside the picture, Bolu wrote: “Yes, I’m Gay AF,”
Reacting to the picture, Okupe wrote “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.
“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.
“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.’
