Entrust your treatment to doctors, and your length of days to God – Doyin Okupe advises Kemi Afolabi
Former Special Assistant to former President Obasanjo (Media & Publicity), Dr Doyin Okupe has advised popular Nigerian actress, Kemi Afolabi not to give up on the incurable ailment, Lupus, which she has been diagnosed with.
Instead, He advised her to hand over her treatment and medical care in the hands of a medical doctor and her faith in God.
In an open letter to the actress, Okupe, who was also Senior Special Assistant to former President Jonathan (Public Affairs) said despite Lupus not being curable, it is not true that the actress has limited years to live. He added that there are recorded cases of inexplicable complete remissions
His letter reads: “My dear Kemi, I read about your affliction with Lupus with much compassion. I was, however, saddened by your announcement that doctors told you that you have about five years to live. This is untrue. It is a lie of the devil.
“True Lupus is incurable but there are recorded cases of inexplicable complete remissions.
“Please entrust your treatment and medical care to your doctors but your length of days is totally in the hands of your creator the Almighty God, who is mightier than any disease and greater than any doctor.
“Also, I can tell you for a fact that I know people who have been living with Lupus for more than 10yrs.
“They take their treatments faithfully but rely on God exclusively. Put your trust in God and Jesus, whose name is above everything including Lupus, and you will receive mercy as I have received personally and others too.”
