Helen Oritsejafor, the spouse of Ayo Oritsejafor, the former president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has refuted rumours that her union is having issues.
Last week, bloggers claimed that infidelity was the reason the union had broken up. Additionally, they claimed that she had been noticeably missing from church events.
However, Mrs. Oritsejafor claimed the rumour was untrue in a Facebook post on Monday.
She reaffirmed her love for her husband and their family and said that she was a devout Christian and could not go against her own morals.
Her statement partly read, “Fam, my attention has been drawn to the fake and malicious news making rounds on blogs, social media platforms and the newspapers against my character and that of my family. It’s totally unbelievable, reprehensible and unthinkable and it’s important that I make the facts clear.
“I am a wife, a mother and a woman of God, and I uphold the tenets of my Christian faith and marriage. My family and home is the most important part of my life.
“I, therefore, appeal to everyone to put our interest and that of our lovely kids, above the need to profit from this baseless endeavour.
“My Husband and I are not divorced unless people get divorced on social media and I have never been unfaithful to my husband, whom I love very dearly. These are works of the devil and his agents to dent my character and good works.”
Mrs Oritsejafor added that she would be taking legal action against the rumour mongers.
The former CAN leader married Helen in 1997 after his first wife Stella died.
