“My attention has been drawn to a statement purportedly made by me on an interview programme aired on a Lagos Television station (TV CONTINENTAL) on Sunday 7th April, 2013 to the effect that the ‘Boko Haram sect is working according to the tenets of Islam’…one thing is certain, Boko Haram will never be able to Islamize Nigeria and cannot convert President Jonathan from Christianity to Islam,” he said.
“Let me state categorically that I, Doyin Okupe never made such a statement either on the Television Continental interview referred to by these desperate people or on any other occasion.

  1. Any one who talks too much does not always know when he talks out of senses. Okukpe is a worst enemy to Jonathan, he is just looking for what to eat. He is one of the sycophantic elements who are deceiving the president with fallible information, instead of advising the president on the elemental aspect of good governance. That is ‘issues that affect masses’
