The Senior Pastor of Household of God Church International Ministries, Chris Okotie has said the issue of getting married again is a closed chapter in his life.
Okotie, who stated this in an interview with the BBC Pidgin has been married two times.
The 64-year-old man of God was first married to Tina but the union hit the rocks in 2001.
Okotie then married Stephanie Henshaw in 2008 but couple separated in 2012.
Chris Okotie Says He Will Not Get Married Again
According to him, he won’t be getting married again because “Jesus has already told me that one has ended”.
He noted that God called him to be celibate like Apostle Paul in the Bible but he did not understand until he grew older.
“I’m not getting married again because Jesus has already told me that one has ended. When I was saved, when I became born again, I was in the university at the time I did not understand the will of God for my life,” he said.
“I always said I wanted my own family and all that and I went and did what I wanted. But when my marriage didn’t work twice because I consider myself one of the best husbands that have ever lived on this earth.
“Even people that know me will tell you and yet it didn’t work out. I had asked my master what was happening. Then he told me that I didn’t call you for this type of thing.
“I called you like Paul. I tried to stop you at that time but you didn’t listen. The life I want you to live is a life of dedication to me and the work I called you for. So marriage is not on the menu again, never.”
