Following Pastor David Ibiyeomie’s statement on marriage during a recent program at his church in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, Nollywood actress, Ify Okeke took to her Instagram page to state her position on the issue.
The pastor was quoted to have said, “If you are still single at 35, you are an irresponsible person.” Adding that it is not the will God.
She shared the above photo from her last birthday shoot and wrote;
“So yesterday I read something in one of my whatsapp group and God knows I was so upset, I tried ignoring it but then again I couldn’t understand it. I felt INSULTED PERSONALLY, I felt BATTERED, battering isn’t only when someone beats you, trust me when I say some words can cut sharper than a new knife, I felt more than words could ever describe but then again I directed everything to God. YESOOOO to GOD because I wonder how a MOG will say that SOMEONE IS IRRESPONSIBLE FOR BEING SINGLE @ 35! Like seriously? I know how many of my mates & younger ones who are gone, some are widows, some mentally disabled and so on then again I say to God that this insult is directed to you. Habaaaaa, wetin hapu?
