Prominent politician  and former presidential aide, Dr. Doyin Okupe, has expressed the faith that Nigerian actress, Afolabi Kemi, who is battling Lupus, an auto immune disease which doctors deemed  incurable, can live longer than 5 years handed down to her by physicians.

Nollywood actress, Kemi Afolabi, had opened up on her ‘incurable’ ailment' in a recent  interview, revealing that she was diagnosed with lupus.

In the said interview with show host, Chude Jideonwo, the actress also disclosed that the doctor said she had five years to spend on earth, lamenting tearfully that while she had lived just one year after the doctor’s medical verdict, the actress noted that she didn’t know how much months and years she had left.

Afolabi quoted her doctor as saying, “Make sure you are with your loved ones. At least, you still have up to five years.”

Talking about the sickness, she said, “I have lupus. It’s not curable. You just have to take medications for the rest of your life.”

But reacting to it using the social media platform, Okupe, a trained medical doctor  - turned politician, acknowledged that Lupus is incurable as told Kemi by doctors but recalled knowing people who had lived and are still living beyond 10 years after they were diagnosed of the condition.

In the post captioned, " Kemi Afolabi & Lupus," Okupe also pointed out 'there are recorded cases of inexplicable complete remissions,' urging the actress to trust God and as her length of days on earth is totally in the hands of her creator the Almighty God who is mightier than any disease and greater than any Doctor.

He equally advised Kemi to entrust her treatment and medical care to the doctors.

"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.

"Please entrusts 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.

"True Lupus is incurable but there are recorded cases of inexplicable complete remissions.

"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 recieve mercy as I have recieved personally and others too.

"Dear sister you will not die but shall approach your grave in your very old age in Jesus Name.

"May His Grace continue to abide with you and heal you. May you become a living testimony for this generation in Jesus Name," Okupe stated.
