The senior pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Chris Okotie, says he is not interested in getting married again.
In a chat with BBC Pidgin, the 64-year-old cleric said he won’t be getting married again because Jesus has already told me that one has ended
Okotie disclosed that God called him to be celibate like Apostle Paul in the Bible but he did not understand until he grew older.
“I’m not getting married again because Jesus has already told me that one has ended. When I was saved, when I became born again, I was in university at the time. I did not understand the will of God for my life.
“I called you like Paul. I tried to stop you at that time, but you didn’t listen. I want you to live a life of dedication to me and the work I called you for. So marriage is not on the menu again, never”, he said.
Recall that Okotie had been involved in two failed marriages.
He first got married to Tina but separated in 2001. Then again, he tied the knot with Stephanie Henshaw in 2008 but the union ended in 2012.
