SCOAN Members Reject T.B. Joshua's Wife as Successor

The appointment of Mrs. Evelyn Joshua, the widow of the late leader of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B. Joshua, has been rejected by some members of the church.

Joshua died without naming a successor for the church. This caused some leadership tussle in the church before Mrs. Joshua was made the leader last week. However, there seems to be more issues arising as some members of the church have voiced out their displeasure against her appointment.

The reason some of the members gave was that Mrs. Joshua is not among the pastors in the church. Moreover, they expected a leader from one of the pastors the late prophet had anointed. Besides, they said that the rule of the church is being sidelined by a few members whom they believe are hindering the progress of the Church.

A group of members of the church under the auspices of Global Congress of SCOAN Members, (GCSM) released a statement in Akure to this effect. The statement was signed by its president, Adedeji Opeyemi, and secretary, Mr. Brown Chimieze.

In its statement, they urged all Christians globally to help the church from falling. They added that the last wish of Prophet Joshua was to continue his legacy. Below is an excerpt of the statement.

‘’We are worried about the emergence of Mrs Evelyn Joshua, the wife of the late founder who made 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 election? Was it through ‘anointing’ 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 continents? 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 commercialise every activity in the Church for money.

“Mrs. Evelyn Joshua is not a Pastor. She was never anointed by Pastor Joshua. 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?

“Under the aegis of SCOAN Congress, made up of members from 188 countries, we shall continue to inform and educate the public, peoples all over the world on every development at SCOAN until wisdom, the ways of God and common sense prevail.”
