Media personality, Bolanle Olukanle has said that Sammie Okposo’s confession is not enough and he has to step down from the ministry.
Olukanle said there is a need for him to step away from ministry and work on the root cause of what made him cheat.
According to her, as part of the restoration and healing process, Okposo needs to find the foundation of his relationship with God before leading others.
Recall that Naija News earlier reported that the music minister released a public statement to apologize to his wife, Ozioma, after cheating on her with another lady in the United States.
Okposo in the apology which was shared on his Instagram account lamented over the incident which he noted happened in 2021.
The gospel singer further stated that the development has seen him step aside from ministerial work until “full restoration”
Responding to his apology, Olakunle took to her Twitter account to share her thoughts.
She wrote: “When you cheat & you are in a moral position you must step away from Ministry! You have to ! And also it’s sooo important to hold yourself accountable & confess. When something is in the dark let it come to the light so that there is healing!
“Yes he did a horrible thing & now he has made steps to restore & heal. You can’t be cheating & still ministering. Even if you have repented . Leave the ministry & go & ask yourself why were you cheating. Find the foundation of your relationship with God before your lead others.
“Honestly I will never understand why people ministers and pastors feel like they can cheat and go on like all is well. It is not well! Cheating is a violation that is so deep and reflection of a deep disconnect with where you should be spiritually.”
