Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, has disagreed with those who accuse him of blasphemy for likening his boss to Jesus Christ.

Okupe has been under fire since he, while speaking on Channels Television, said President Jonathan was carrying a heavy burden like Jesus Christ.

He responded minutes ago, via facebook. He first wrote: “Detractors and mischief makers are at it again. I said PGEJ like Christ is bearing a lot of burden for the nation. Christians are expected to be Christlike.”

Okupe soon followed with more: “It is surprising that those who are not Christians are explaining Christian precepts in the name of politics. In every Bible class Christians are taught to emulate Christ in words and deeds. It is a thing of pride and honour, NOT blasphemy, in Christendom to be compared to our Lord. Our detractors won’t go far.”
