Ace gospel artiste, Sammie Okposo, has tendered a public apology to his wife after a recent infidelity scandal.
The popular singer on Tuesday 25th of January 2022, issued a public apology to his wife Ozioma Okposo, his fans and the church at large for engaging in what he accorded as a shameful act.
The maestro took to his Instagram page which is now private to reveal that he got involved with another woman when he travelled to the United States. In a lengthy apology, he wrote:
Dear Friends, 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.
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.
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 judgement is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day forth.
I want to take this moment and apologise to all fathers and mothers of the Faith and ministers of the Gospel for my behavior 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 judgement may cause you and I am truly sorry for disappointing you.
I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me.
