Doyin Okupe, former senior special assistant to former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs has vented his anger against those who have set out to defame him.
Okupe was reacting to a story published on PremiumTimes, an online news platform that claimed he used certain companies to receive money from Jonathan to hack ‘unfriendly websites’.
Okupe who took to Twitter to express his displeasure at the report then called upon God to let his wrath fall on those who are trying to assassinate his character and defame him.
He did not refrain from also asking God to curse him if the accusations against him were rightly so.
“My prayer for tonight is Jehovah that rules the affairs of men, I beseech you, if I as much have knowledge of what I am accused of by Premium times let all the curses in Bible be upon me but if I am innocent let your wrath fall on all those who have a hand in this accusation and let it b seen by all,” he tweeted.
Prior asking for God’s intervention, Okupe had tweeted that: “I have read the falsehood by Premium Times about me. Before God, who I fear and serve the story is untrue and planted to defame me. I will respond tomorrow. It is a wonderful country where the innocent is disparaged and reputation damaged on the alter of partisanship,” he wrote.
Still bothered by the report, he wrote again: “Those who are looking for every opportunity to bring me down and destroy my reputation will fail and be put to shame. The lies in the story are unsustainable.
Okupe who also served as former special assistant to former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo on (Media & Publicity) followed that tweet with this: “Doyin okupe vs Premium Times: #TruthShallPrevail”
And he also wrote: “I want to assure all my friends and well wishers that this wicked & deliberate falsehood will not stand. I do not know any of d companies.”
