Pamela Adie, one of Nigeria’s LGBT activist, has reacted after the son of former presidential spokesperson, Doyin Okupe, came out as gay.
Pamela on Twitter recalled that Okupe vehemently supported the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act (SSMPA) signed by former President, Goodluck Jonathan, who Okupe served.
”Son: Dad, I’m gay Dad: I’m a Christian. This is a spiritual attack! Let’s pray!
Una no dey tire? Na so scam pastors go dey chop una money upandan. Don’t love and accept your children. Be looking for solution where there’s no problem.
With all his experience and exposure as a medical doctor, Doyin Okupe still believes that his son being gay is a “spiritual attack”. Where does one go from here?
Let’s not forget that Doyin Okupe was a senior aide to President Jonathan and vehemently supported him when he signed the SSMPA into law in 2014; a dangerous law that violently harms so many in this country. Now, Okupe’s son has announced that he is gay. I love life!”
