I don’t care about what two adults do with each other behind the closed doors, neither do I like talking about issues of morality when it comes to man-woman relationships. Those who I relate with, can attest to this because, like my late father would say “what do you do when a man who allegedly sleeps with your wife and swears in God’s name that he didn’t do it, whereas there is a witness to the unholy act, who insists that it happened?” Will you invite God to come and testify or what? You certainly have limited options. That’s why it is difficult to dabble into man-woman affairs especially when it comes to sexual matters. Am disturbed by some commentaries of some highly placed individuals who have taken it upon themselves to be the judge, jury, plaintiff and defendant in the Apostle Johnson Suleiman and his alleged estranged mistress, Stephanie Otobo’s infidelity allegation matter.
Personally, I have seen a lot in man-woman relationships- be it among pastors, imams and non-religious people too. These different categories of people are my friends so don’t think am just trying to score a point here! Things usually end up badly when a man is involved with a woman that’s not his wife and without any intention of making her one! Mark my words, it will end in a mess.
The raging issue over who the saint is and who the devil is between Apostle Suleiman and Stephanie Otobo is highly unnecessary, what many of our respected lawyers and commentators have written is passing a Judgment and hanging the accused without a proper trial. Some have called for the head of Suleiman while others, majority of who are already preparing Otobo for the guillotine!
This is uncalled for as some pertinent questions keep coming up in my head. Perhaps answers to these questions will help to calm frayed nerves.
- Does Apostle Suleiman know Stephanie Otobo? Yes or No?
2. Does Mrs. Suleiman know Stephanie Otobo?
3. Did Suleiman ever have any relationship with Stephanie Otobo?
4. Does Mrs Suleiman know about this relationship?
5. Did Suleiman ever give Stephanie money?
6. If he ever did, what was the money meant for?
Until we’re able to answer some of these questions, we’d just be going round in circles.
Let’s not hang or absolve any of these two yet. I had a pastor friend who once impregnated a lady in his church. My friend, a married man and a “man of God” was confused because he was pastor of one of Nigeria’s leading Pentecostal churches, Ikeja parish. In the he managed to convince the lady to have an abortion after paying her a lot of money. These things happen so let’s wait a little before we pass judgment on either Suleiman or Stephanie.
Please, don’t hang anyone of the two actors. Let Mr. Suleiman not waste further time. He should proceed to court immediately and file a suit against the Otobo lady. Stop this media war, go to court and clear your for failure to do that will leave some of us with a very serious doubt about your purity.
