TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations has been plunged into a fresh Crisis following the alleged nomination of self imposed leader and the discovery that some aides to it’s late Leader, prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua .
According to a reliable source, Elder Emmanuel Kayode, a member of the church, disclosed that the ex aides have seized some assets of the church while diverting money from it’s foreign partners to an illegal church account.
Kayode blamed the development on those he described as errants Prophets, prophetesses, disciples and evangelist of the deceased cleric.
Some members of Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) are not pleased and have expressed concerns over the wife of the founder, Mrs Evelyn Joshua, as the successor of her husband.
According to reports, the members called on christian and lovers of the church for immediate intervention to save the church from ruin.
They wrote in a statement jointly signed by the president and secretary, Adedeji Opeyemi and Brown Chimieze on Tuesday disclosing that the church is going through a difficult time.
Therefore, they appealed to other members to help sustain the church.
The statement reads;
“To beloved members of the SCOAN family, to Christian’s and people all over the world. We appeal to your conscience, to help in sustaining the synagogue church of All Nations (SCOAN) from ruins. We need your prayers now.
“ The church is passing through difficult times. The challenges are not difficult to bring down, but some people in the church wish to pile up more troubles since the passing into eternity of the founder, the man of god., Pastor TB Joshua, efforts have been made to ensure his legacy thrives for the church members millions of them all over the world.
The biggest tasks is to honor the last wish of the man of God and keep his flag flying but unfortunately the activities of a few members of the church are building stumbling blocks against the progress of the church.
Pastor TB Joshua expected his successor to be from among the pastors in the church whom he had annointed. This rule has been swept aside.
The elders alledged that Mrs Evelyn unilaterally announced herself as the new leader of the church.
“We are worried about the emergence of Mrs Evelyn Joshua, the wife of the late founder who made a unilateral declaration of herself as the new leader of the church.
“she claimed a congregation of 2000 church members appointed her. This is ridiculous: where did the meeting hold? Was it through a yes vote? Was it through the election? Was it through anointed by the 2000 members? Where is the resolution of the 2000 members? Can 2000 members pick a successor in a church with millions of members all over the world in five continent?
What is the Constitution of the church? Was it followed?
“ pastor TB Joshua Never ran the church on the basis of profit. Today, there is a design by the newly self imposed leader, Mrs Evelyn Joshua to commercialize every activity in the church for money.
“ Mrs Evelyn Joshua is not a pastor. She was never anointed by pastor Joshua her husband. She was not part of the founding members of the church. What is the basis of her emergence as the person now parading herself as the new leader?
