Sammie Okposo apologises for infidelity, suspends ministry activities
Sammie Okposo, Nigerian gospel writer and singer has apologised for cheating on his wife during a recent visit to the United States.
Okposo who is also a music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment revealed his escapade on his Instagram account Monday night.
He also revealed that he would be suspending himself from ministry work until he attains “full restoration”.
“I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but know that this is the right thing to do,” he said in the post.
“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.
He then added that, “To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry to 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 to apologise to all Fathers and Mothers of the faith and ministers of the gospel for my behaviour 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 apologise for the 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 judgement may cause you and I am truly sorry for disappointing you. I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me,” he said.
