Lagos Pastor and presidential candidate for the Fresh Party, Pastor Chris Okotie, has said that although his separation from his wife in 2012 is “final and irrevocable,” he will not remarry.
This was contained in a statement by the Director, Media and Communication Strategy of the Household of God Pastor, Mr. Ladi Ayodeji, on Thursday.
Ayodeji said in the statement, “The pastor of our great church, the Household of God, Oregun, Lagos, Rev. Chris Okotie, has finally laid to rest speculations about his future marriage which has been the subject of media controversy since his separation from his former wife, Stephanie Henshaw last year.
“He announced to the church during the evening service on Wednesday, January 09, 2013, his decision not to remarry which, he said, is final and irrevocable, having already settled the matter with the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Taking cognisance of the wide media interest that this issue is likely to generate, we decided to make this statement to pre-empt mischief makers from distorting the facts.
“The pastor assures his well wishers, friends and numerous supporters around the world that he is completely at peace with himself and his God in arriving at this historic decision.”
