Gospel singer Sammie Okposo has tendered an unreserved apology to his wife for cheating on her with a certain American lady, during a recent trip to the USA.
In a statement shared on his Instagram page, Okposo noted that his actions were wrong and inappropriate for a married man and minister of the Gospel but he had to make this big move because it is the right thing to do.
He said he broke his wife’s trust and disappointed her but hopes to build back the trust and confidence eventually.
He extended his apologies to fathers and mothers of faith and ministers of the Gospel for the embarrassing situation.
His statement reads:
“I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but that this is the right thing to do. On my recent trip to the USA (Late 2021), I got intimately involved with a lady, knowing that this was not appropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel. I am ashamed and regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife Ozioma, my family, and I.
As I work in making peace with God, repenting, and asking for His forgiveness. I am suspending myself from all ministry work until full restoration as this is what is proper and what I know I owe God and His people.
To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you. Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgment is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day for the rest of my life.
I want to take this moment and apologize to all fathers and mothers of the faith and ministers of the Gospel for my behaviors and moral failure. I won’t be here if not for your investment and belief in what God has called me to do. I sincerely apologize for this embarrassing situation.
To all that have been a part of my ministry, followed my ministry, or know me personally, I am truly sorry for disappointing you. I regret any pain or disappointment that this news of my moral failure and poor judgment may cause you and I am truly sorry for disappointing you. I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me”.
