While it recently became public knowledge that the marriage between popular pastors Chris & Anita Oyakhilome was rocky, it seems things have been going south for quite a while.
Pastor Chris had reportedly called Anita “angry and bitter” during a meeting of church pastors and deacons, according to a news site.
The report reads,
“Bitterness is prolonged and accumulated anger. My wife is always angry and bitter.”
“Some pastors’ wives think when they marry a pastor, they are equal to the pastor. My wife thinks so. As a matter of fact, Rev. Tom was her pastor before I married her and Rev. Ray and Evang. Owase were her leaders long before I married her. How come she thinks she’s senior to them now?”
“I already started Christ Embassy before I married her. I didn’t marry her and said we should start Christ Embassy. I was already ‘pastoring.’ I already set my sail and knew my direction before I married her. I only said ‘come and help me.’”
“Be careful of the friends you keep. My wife keeps friends who bring out the worst in her and help her see the worst in people, instead of keeping friends that will help her vision, especially as the wife of a global pastor like me.”
The couple’s 20-year marriage has produced 2 daughters, Charlene & Sharon.
