Popular gospel artiste, Sammie Okposo, has publicly apologised to his wife, Ozioma, and his fans for committing adultery.
The ‘Wellu Wellu’ crooner, who made the confession on his Instagram page, urged Nigerians to pray for him.
He narrated that he cheated on his wife when he travelled to the United States in late 2021.
Okposo, in a lengthy post on Tuesday, said he is suspending himself from all ministry work until full restoration as he seeks forgiveness from God.
He wrote, “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 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 also apologized to his wife, fans, fathers and mothers of the faith, ministers of the gospel and everyone he has disappointed and embarrassed.
“To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry. Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgment is important to me.”
He, therefore, prayed that he would eventually build back the trust and confidence every single day forth.
