TB Joshua’s wife gives condition for reopening of church after husband’s death

Evelyn Joshua, the new leader of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and wife of the late founder, Prophet TB Joshua, has given a condition for the reopening of the church for service.

Recall Evelyn Joshua was unveiled as the new leader of the church a few weeks ago in a statement posted on the official Facebook page of SCOAN.

The statement had read in part; “It is now God’s appointed time, to the glory of God, for The SCOAN to soldier on with the divine assignment under the guidance of God and the human leadership of Mrs Evelyn Joshua”.

In a fresh statement by the church new leader, the worship area will be reopened when leaders hear from the Lord.

According to her: “We are getting ready and even yearning to start services but we cannot go outside the will of God whose directive is what we shall continue to uphold, live and work on,” she stated.

She noted that since her husband’s demise, the church was yet to start services, like other churches; adding that the peculiarity of the church, which sees both locals and foreigners attend services, was being put into consideration.

She said: “We have no fear whatsoever but don’t forget a good Christian must also be a good citizen. We have continued to pray for God’s mercy for our nation and the world. Besides, I am still mourning the passing of my husband.

“The mourning period is over, and most importantly, when the Lord intimates us to begin, we shall move swiftly in God’s grace”.

“Be assured that God’s mercy endures and by His grace, SCOAN shall come out stronger,” the new leader said.

Commenting further on plans to reopen for church service, a representative of the SCOAN legal department, James Akhigbe said very soon the church will commence service, adding that we don’t do things based on human emotions.

According to him: “We don’t conduct the affairs of SCOAN to please people but we embark on the project because we have heard from God. We are very hopeful that God will give us the green light.

“Meanwhile, we cannot say tomorrow because you cannot dictate to the Holy Spirit,” Mr. Akhigbe said.
