Africa has abandoned her youths – TB Joshua cries out

In a rousing speech, Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua has decried the state of Africa’s future, admonishing African countries to fight against division and focus on building a better tomorrow for its young people.

In the wake of rising tensions within several African countries, the renowned cleric addressed congregants in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 26th February 2017 in a sermon televised live on Emmanuel TV and subsequently posted to social media.

“No African country can succeed alone,” Joshua began. “Africans need each other to develop,” he continued, citing an example that West Africa needs Southern Africa for development and vice versa.

Joshua implored all Africans to contribute to the society they live in and not engage in illicit trade or unlawful activities. “Everyone has a contribution to make. Whether you are poor, rich, immigrant or refugee – you have a contribution to make.”

He added that citizens must work hand-in-hand with the police to report those who have travelled within Africa with criminal intentions.

“With regard to issues of illegal immigrants, drugs and other crimes, our duty is to work with the law enforcement agencies by giving them useful information. It is only when these agencies fail that we can lawfully protest.”

Joshua then stressed that Africans should be accommodating to citizens of the same continent, calling for unity to triumph over tribal or ethnic divisiveness. “Dear Africans, we should not let other fellow Africans feel unwelcome to our countries.”

The cleric spoke candidly on the state of Africa’s future, stating that the continent had “neglected her youths,” resulting in a situation that “looks gloomy, frustrating, hopeless and dark”.

“When I think about the future of Africa, I have sleepless nights,” he admitted. “Africa has abandoned the youths to themselves. Africa has failed to make provision for the youths, whereas tomorrow’s Africa is the youths.”

Rather than toeing the line of name-calling or blame-exchanging, the Nigerian called on Africans to take collective responsibility for their current status.

Much to the delight of the multi-national crowd, the cleric then announced his readiness to travel within Africa for gatherings organised for the purpose of addressing these issues and building a better future for African youth.

“What then is the way forward? The Lord has instructed me to make myself available and I know God, in His infinity, must have touched other Africans, so that we can come together to remedy this challenge”.

Joshua rarely travels abroad, his last trip within Africa being a reconciliatory visit to the East African nation of Tanzania to douse tensions in the wake of the 2015 elections. Tanzania’s President John Magufuli is a self-professed follower of Joshua, visiting his church in Nigeria prior to his ascension to office.

“Long live the future of Africa – the youth. Long live Africa. May God bless you,” Joshua concluded.

The message comes in the midst of renewed xenophobic attacks in South Africa and escalating tensions between Northern and Southern Cameroon.

TB Joshua blasts fake prophets, says they are after money.

The founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua, has bemoaned the rise in fake pastors and prophets in Malawi.


The prophet made this known in a message through Malawi’s Apostle Linette Matope, during discussions at the SCOAN in Nigeria.


According to Malawi24 News, Joshua told Matope that despite the fact that Malawi was a God fearing country, it had a lot of fake prophets.


He said it was contributing to the poverty in that country.


The message reads: “Joshua says Malawi is really a God fearing country but there are more prophets and pastors who are after money and not to serve which is disappointing.


“The man of God has urged people in the country to refrain from false prophets and pastors,” Matope was quoted as saying.

Controversy trails death of Synagogue Church worshippers

Police have dismissed a report that three worshippers of The Synagogue Church of All Nations died at the Church premises Saturday.

Dolapo Badmus, the Lagos police spokesperson, said the deaths occurred in a hotel and that bodies of the victims had been sent for autopsy.

“They didn’t die at the church premises,” Ms. Badmus, a Superintendent of Police, told PREMIUM TIMES on Monday. “They are church members. They came for service but died in a hotel.”

But according to the Punch newspaper, at least three worshippers were confirmed dead at the church’s premises following a stampede that occurred during a special healing service last Saturday.

The newspaper listed the dead to include Emeka Okonkwo, Emmanuel Oherin, and a third victim who is yet to be identified.

The newspaper also quoted a witness as saying that the incident happened at about 4.30a.m.

“It was the church’s annual deliverance and healing programme,” the paper quoted the witness as saying.

“Usually at this time, the church becomes a beehive of activities as people come in their thousands to see the prophet for miracles.

“People lodge in different hotels surrounding the church. And they all arrive at the church very early.

“There is a canopy on the premises where worshippers are screened before they see the man of God.

“However, on Saturday, after being screened, the crowd was much and they started struggling through the doorway to see the prophet. In the process, three people collapsed. They were rushed to the Isolo General Hospital, where they were confirmed dead.”

The police spokesperson’s comment contradicted the response this newspaper got when it called a phone number listed on the church’s official website.

“Nothing like that happened, a lady who answered the call said when asked about the worshippers’ death claims.

“No one died. Please ignore such rumour. Thank you.”

Temitope Joshua (popularly known as TB Joshua), the church’s founder is yet to comment on the incident through his favourite medium of communication, the church’s official Facebook page, as at Monday morning.

Saturday’s incident came just as another tragedy occurred in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, where a Reigners Bible Church building, filled to capacity, collapsed killing at least 50 people.

In 2014, a five-storey building under construction at the Synagogue church collapsed as three additional floors were being added to the original two-storey structure, killing 115 people.

TB Joshua: Prayers of Americans reversed my prophecy on Clinton. [Video]

Founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua, has further clarified on his controversial prophesy regarding who would win last November 8 Presidential election in the US.
In a latest video on his church’s Facebook page, TB Joshua Ministries, Joshua explained that following his prophesy before the election, some concerned Americans went into deep prayers and fastings, which prompted God to hearken to their voice, thereby reversing Hillary Clinton’s win.

People misinterpreted my US elections prophecy – TB Joshua

The founder of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, Temitope Joshua, on Sunday said his earlier prophecy on the U.S. presidential election was given different interpretation by people “on a different level” with him.

In his Sunday sermon, Mr. Joshua (popularly known as TB Joshua) said people would need the spirit of a prophet to be able to recognize one.

“We have seen the outcome of the election in America,” Mr. Joshua said in a message later posted on the church’s official website and Facebook page.

He also hinted that his reference to Hillary Clinton as eventual winner was reflected in her winning more popular votes than Donald Trump.

“Having read, you will notice that it is all about the popular vote, the vote of the majority of Americans. In this case, we need the Spirit of a Prophet to recognize a Prophet. Our levels are different. We are not on the same level.

“We might have great cathedrals, huge bells, and all kinds of activities that are good by human standards but human point of view is limited.

“1 Corinthians 1:25. The foolishness of God is wiser than that of men and the weakness of God is stronger than that of men. There is no shortcut to spiritual maturity unless earthly understanding gives way to spiritual enlightenment.”

Last Sunday, with two days to the US Presidential election, Mr. Joshua had predicted a “narrow” victory for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party presidential candidate.

“Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win,” he had said in his prophecy which was later posted on the church’s official Facebook account.

“The new President will be facing several challenges over many issues, including: passing bills, attempts to possibly pass a vote of no confidence on the new President. The boat of the new President will be rocked.

“By the way, in order not to keep you in suspense, what I frankly saw is a woman.”

But on Wednesday, Donald Trump, the Republican candidate and Mrs. Clinton’s main opponent, clinched the ticket to the White House by winning 306 electoral colleges to Mrs. Clinton’s 232.

Mrs. Clinton, however, garnered more votes with 60,981,118 to Mr. Trump’s 60,350,241 votes.

In the aftermath of Mrs. Clinton’s defeat, Nigerians trooped to social media to mock Mr. Joshua over the failure of his prophecy.

On Wednesday morning, Mr. Joshua deleted the prophecy from the church’s official Facebook account.

In its place, he posted a seven-line message urging his members to join him in prayer.

On Sunday, Mr. Joshua said people tried to interpret the prophecy “on the basis of their own minds and ideas.”

“The prophecy seems (sic) to cause uproar, to many who gave it different meaning and interpretation,” he said.

“Finally, campaigns and elections in any democratic country in the world are never about one person, it is about the country we care and love. Whichever way it happens, we must accept the outcome and then look to the future (God), the Author and Finisher.

“Democracy is all about accommodation. All democrats must value the process of democracy more than the product. God bless the United States of America.”

TB Joshua: The line between watching CNN & hearing from God – Emmanuel Ekaji Ibe

I don’t know what to make of the US election as I still cannot understand and figure out properly what happened. Till then I would address other surrounding issues.

Prophet T.B Joshua is my focus here and for a long time, I have observed keenly how this man has moved from one dirty controversy to the other; how sometime ago his church was involved in a building collapse as a result of the clear disregard of warnings not to add more storey buildings on the existing one.

Still on that issue, there were incidents were he was involved in bribing Journalists so as not to publish evidence that could cause further damage to him. I have watched all these but never for once did I comment on it as I really try to avoid criticizing religious leaders but I have long since changed my stand.

T.B Joshua is one of the major problems of the Nigerian society and he represents the large number of other so called religious leaders who take advantage of the gullibility and mental decay in Nigeria to enrich themselves and brainwash the multitudes in buying whatever crap they sell to them, every Sunday.

T.B Joshua is not just dull and unintelligent, he is a major fool and unfortunate soul. He goes to church every Sunday preaching his own version of Christianity and God, using God to make money off innocent worshippers.

He was preaching at what he calls church on Sunday and all of a sudden he said the Lord revealed to him who was gonna win the US Election, he said it would be a lady, obviously Hillary Clinton and that she was going to have problems with the US congress and his church members were so excited and were applauding the prophesy.

He talked about some other things, confidently spitting nonsense and a very large audience believing everything. Wow!

The US election is over now. If you call T.B Joshua a fool, an idiot, a stupid man, and all sorts you are right and no one has the right to question you.

Even if you desire not to speak, you are right, res ipsa loquitur, the fact speaks for itself and his folly is so glaring for his Sunday audience to see and the world to conclude finally that he was a filthy piece of shit all along.

Donald trump won. Now the offering being paid in his church definitely he’d use part to subscribe for DSTV, there is every possibility that his watching of CNN for too long might have influenced his decision.

There really cannot be anything wrong with a religious leader airing his political views as we have seen father Mbaka of the Catholic Church do several times but when you hide under God and religion to defraud people, you are a good for nothing soul and amongst the worst humans in this world.

Police Hand Over Ese To Parents; Dad Says She’s Hypnotised, Will Take Her To TB Joshua

Police authorities in Abuja yesterday night said Ese Oruru, freed Monday, will now be officially handed over to her mother, Mrs. Oruru, today.


14 years old Ese Rita Oruru was brought to Police headquarters at Louis Edet House at about 12. 55pm amid tight police protection.

Her dad, Mr Charles Oruru, however disclosed that he has concluded plans to seek spiritual assistance from Lagos cleric, Pastor T.B. Joshua, founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

ese oruru

Ese would have been handed over to her mother yesterday, but for inability of the woman to arrive Abuja by 8.00p.m. last night as she travelled from Yenagoa, Bayelsa State by road.


She was immediately ushered into the office of the Force Public Relations Officer, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Olabisi Kolawole, for what sources said was a debriefing exercise. Also arrested and brought to Abuja by a Special Police team from Zone 1 headquarters, Kano, led by an Assistant Commissioner of Police, was the abductor of Ese, Yunusa, alias Yellow.


Both the abductor and the abductee were escorted by three representatives of the Emir of Kano to brief the police authorities about the roles the Emir and Kano Emirate Council played in getting Ese released.


At exactly 1 25pm, the Force Public Relations Officer was seen leading the freed Ese Oruru to the office of the Inspector General of Police for further briefing. Attempts by newsmen to talk with Ese were rebuffed as the FPRO assured that as soon as Ese’s mother, who was being expected from Bayelsa arrived, the Police will brief the media on the matter by 4 pm.


Recall that Ese was abducted by one Yinusa, from her mother’s shop in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State on August 12, 2015, and whisked away to Kano State without the consent of her parents.


She was rescued Monday night, following a directive by the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, to the Commissioner of Police, Kano State, Mohammed Katsina, to liaise with the state’s Emirate Council and relevant persons in the state.

Court Fixes Feb 18 For TB Joshua, Engineers’ Arraignment

A Lagos State High Court in Ikeja on Monday fixed February 18, 2016 for the arraignment of the Registered Trustees of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, founded by Prophet T.B. Joshua.


The defendants were charged before Justice Lateef Lawal-Akapo on one count of building without the approval of the Lagos State Government.


The said building collapsed on September 12, 2014 leading to the death of 116 persons.


Also to be arraigned on 110 counts of involuntary manslaughter are the two engineers who built the collapsed building, Messrs Oladele Ogundeji and Akinbela Fatiregun.


Justice Lawal-Akapo fixed the arraignment date on Monday after he dismissed an application by the engineers challenging the manner by which the charge sheet was served on them.


The engineers had also described the charge filed against them by Lagos State Government as an abuse of court processes, saying Justice Ibrahim Buba of Federal High Court in Lagos had on December 2,2016 restrained the state Attorney General from prosecuting them pending an appeal they filed at the Court of Appeal.

But in his ruling on Monday, Justice Lawal-Akapo dismissed the application for lacking in merit.

The judge affirmed the argument of the Lagos State, through its Director Public Prosecutions, Mrs. Idowu Alakija that the engineers were properly served with the charge sheet by substituted means.

Justice Lawal-Akapo discountenanced the order granted the engineers on December 2, 2015 by Justice Buba, restraining the Lagos State Attorney General prosecuting pending their appeal.


Justice Lawal-Akapo said both the Lagos State and the Federal High Courts were courts of coordinate jurisdiction, stressing that Justice Buba’s order could not stop the proceedings before him.

He held, “The order of a high court cannot be binding on another high court, be it federal or state because they are both courts of coordinate jurisdictions.

“The order of Buba J. cannot bind this court and cannot stop these proceedings.

“I find no merit in the two applications and they hereby dismissed.”


The engineers and the Registered Trustees of SCOAN had on July 8, 2015 been implicated over the collapsed six-story building by a Lagos State Coroner Court, presided by Mr. Oyetade Komolafe.


As opposed to the defendants’ argument that the building was sabotaged, Komolafe, had linked the collapse to structural failure.


He had therefore recommended that the church be investigated and prosecuted for building without the state’s approval.


He also recommended that the engineers be investigated and prosecuted for criminal negligence for the death of the 116 persons who perished in the collapsed building.


The state in its argument, however, said it is not prosecuting the church and the engineers based on the coroner’s verdict but the investigation carried out by the police.

TB Joshua Named Yoruba Man Of The Year

TB Joshua of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) has been named as the 2015 ‘Yoruba Man Of The Year’.

The honour was bestowed on him by the ‘Egbe Omo Oodua Parapo’, a coalition of 35 Pan-Yoruba groups drawn from across the world.

“We give this award to Pastor Joshua out of over 500 nominees screened by the Planning Committee of the Association,” Dr Akinwale Adewunmi, the Chairman of the award committee said in a statement following the group’s annual conference in United States.

According to Adewunmi, Joshua has added “honour and admiration to the Yoruba nation”, especially through his diverse philanthropic activities.

“We are proud that you are a Yoruba man with a global image in the annals of charity,” he stated, noting that Joshua’s charitable projects span 45 countries and aid ‘millions’ on a yearly basis, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity.

“Pastor Joshua started as a poor boy,” the statement added, acknowledging the cleric’s uncanny rise to prominence from a poverty-stricken home in Ondo State, Nigeria.

“He had no access to education neither did he enjoy any outstanding benefit from his society, yet he built himself. He educated himself and today stands out like a Professor in the greater university of life and living.”

TB Joshua Fails To Appear For Building Collapse Trial

TB Joshua and two contractors facing trial for criminal negligence over a church building collapse that killed 116 worshippers failed to appear in court on Monday, prompting the judge to adjourn the case. The case at the Lagos high court followed a coroner’s ruling in July that blamed Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and two engineers for the September 12, 2014 tragedy.

TB Joshua suggests sabotage over deadly building collapse

Most of the victims were South African.  Coroner Oyetade Komolafe in his verdict attributed the collapse to structural failures and said the church should be prosecuted as the six-storey guesthouse did not have planning permission.

Joshua, who maintains the collapse was caused by a mysterious “hovering” aircraft seen over the building beforehand or a controlled explosion, repeatedly failed to appear at the inquest.

At court on Monday, Joshua was again absent, as were the two engineers who have called the coroner’s verdict “unreasonable, one-sided and biased”. One member of the church’s trustees was present. The hearing was told the engineers, who have unsuccessfully tried to obtain an injunction to prevent their arrest and prosecution, had not been served with a summons.

Judge Lawal Akapo said he was unhappy at the defendants’ absence and said he would not tolerate any unnecessary delays of the trial.  “It appears the defendants are not mindful that this is a criminal proceeding. This is a criminal trial and a sensitive matter like this one should be given accelerated hearing,” he said.

He directed the defence team to provide the court with the engineers’ addresses within 72 hours and adjourned the case until December 11. Joshua, who counts powerful politicians from across Africa among his flock, is known to followers as “The Prophet” and “The Man of God”.  He is a self-styled faith healer and mystic who also runs a popular evangelical television channel.

Lagos High Court Arraigns TB Joshua, Others Today

The trustees of Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, will today be arraigned before a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja over the collapse of a six-storey building in the church on September 12, 2014, which led to the death of 116 persons.

Senior Pastor of the church, Prophet T. B. Joshua is one of the trustees.

The trustees will be arraigned before Justice Lawal Akapo alongside the engineers that constructed the collapsed building.

A statement by the Deputy Director, Public Affairs of the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, Bola Akingbade, confirmed the scheduled arraignment.

Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court in Lagos had dismissed the fundamental human rights enforcement suits filed by the engineers who constructed the collapsed six-storey building to stop their planned trial.

The engineers— Mr. Oladele Ogundeji and Mr. Akinbela Fatiregun—had filed two separate suits before Justice Buba seeking an order restraining the police from inviting, arresting or prosecuting them over the victims’ death.

Collapsed Synagogue Building: TB Joshua, Engineers Must Be Prosecuted – Governor Ambode

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, says he will enforce the verdict of the coroner’s inquest on the September 12, 2014 Synagogue Church building collapse.

The governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna, on Thursday, said his government would uphold and enforce the sanctity of the law in the state, urging residents of the state to also respect the rule of law.

Ambode said, “The coroner’s verdict of July 7, 2015, made a number of recommendations which the state government would act upon accordingly.

“One of the provisions of the Coroner Law, 2007, is the provision that empowers a coroner to commence an inquest to find out the cause and manner of death which occur in an unusual manner.”

The governor added that consequent upon the collapse building on the premises of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, the state government applied that a coroner’s inquest be commenced into the cause of the tragic deaths.

He said, “Therefore, the Lagos State Government will cause the prosecution of the contractor, Akinbela Fatiregun of Hardrock Engineering Company Limited; and the Structural Engineer, Oladele Ogundeji, who constructed and supervised the collapsed building, respectively, at the Synagogue Church of All Nations for professional negligence.”

The governor added that the government would also prosecute SCOAN for neglecting to obtain building approval before commencing the construction of the building, contrary to the provisions of the Urban and Regional Planning and Development Law, 2010.

He appealed to residents of the state to always allow emergency responders to perform their duties during emergencies as they were trained for the purpose.

“Also, land owners within the state, who intend to embark on construction, should employ the services of qualified engineers who must obtain building permit before construction,” the governor added.

TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church Rejects Coroner’s Verdict; Says it’s Unreasonable, One-sided & Biased


The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) rejects the verdict of the coroner on the grounds that it is unreasonable, one-sided and biased. The church maintains its stand that the incident was as a result of sabotage.

From the verdict given today, we would like the public to take note of the following:

There was no finding that the church engaged the services of unqualified or incompetent
professionals for the construction of the building.
There was no finding that the church procured substandard materials for the construction of the building, as confirmed by officials of the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) who gave evidence at the coroner and certified the materials used were all approved and of good quality.
There was evidence that the church had started processing the relevant building approval before the incident, which had been approved and assessed for payment by the appropriate government bodies.
There was no finding that connected the incident with the lack of a building permit.
There was no finding that church members prevented the statutory responders from carrying out their rescue duties.
The church disagrees most vehemently with the finding that the incident was due to structural failure.

The church considers it strange that the coroner did not refer in its verdict to the evidence of the COREN-registered structural engineer and contractor used by the church nor did it evaluate the conflicting evidence given by civil and structural engineers as to whether or not the incident was as a result of structural failure.

It was a one-sided verdict which left many issues unaddressed and questions unanswered.

The church disagrees with the findings concerning the aircraft that hovered over the six-storey building because there was evidence before the court that the incident could have been brought about by external forces such as controlled demolition or an explosion.

The verdict did not even refer to the CCTV footage which showed the 6-storey building falling in less than 4 seconds – a manner consistent with controlled or externally induced demolition – nor did it refer to the interim report and investigation by the Nigerian police force which pointed to sabotage by external forces.

The church also disagrees with the finding that foundation failure was a remote cause because that is contrary to the overwhelming expert evidence of the structural engineers invited to the coroner who eliminated foundation failure as a possible cause.

The recommendation for the investigation and prosecution of the contractors and structural engineers used by the church for criminal negligence is premature because it gives the impression the coroner has found them guilty when a coroner is not allowed in law to make any finding of civil or criminal liability against anybody.

The recommendation for the investigation of The SCOAN for not possessing the relevant building permits is unwarranted because it did not take into account the evidence that the church had started processing the relevant building approval before the incident. As a matter of fact, the amount payable for the processing had already been assessed by the appropriate government agencies.

The recommendation that statutory responders should be adequately equipped was informed by the fact that the statutory responders who carried out rescue operations in this case were ill-equipped and ill-trained, and that it was the church that mobilised human and material resources to ensure a successful rescue operation.

Finally, the coroner recognised that the conduct of the investigation of the incident was compromised by the failure of the appropriate government agencies to take necessary steps to secure and preserve the scene of the incident, which calls into question the integrity and reliability of the entire investigation.

This is a statement from Barr. Olalekan Ojo, legal counsel to The SCOAN.
We repeat: No matter how long a lie is sustained, the truth will someday prevail!

Here’s what had happened before this statement was released early morning today – after 10 months of sitting, the Lagos Coroner’s Inquest into the collapse of a six-storey building belonging to the SCOAN, had yesterday in Ikeja indicted the church for “criminal negligence” and recommended that it be prosecuted.

The court said the Church did not get the necessary permit or approval before commencing  construction of the building. 116 people died in the tragic incident.

I Told Jonathan He Will Lose—T.B Joshua

Televangelist and cleric of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Joshua, Sunday, said he told President Goodluck Jonathan, that he would lose the March 28 presidential election.

Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was defeated by Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

T.B Joshua said he sent his message to the President weeks before the election.

“I want to use this moment to congratulate Nigerians in our midst here,” Mr. Joshua began in a message to his congregation, televised live via his Christian network Emmanuel TV and posted on the social network of the church.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan (L), and APC main opposition party's presidential candidate Mohammadu Buhari shake hands under the eyes of Chairman of the Abuja Peace Accord former Head of State General Abdulsalami Abubakar (C), after signing the renewal of the pledges for peaceful elections on March 26, 2015 in Abuja. Security is a major concern at Saturday's vote both from Boko Haram violence against voters and polling stations to clashes between rival supporters. In 2011, around 1,000 people were killed in violence after Jonathan beat Buhari to the presidency. AFP PHOTO

“This message should be delivered to your president, that whatever the outcome of this election, his regime has come to an end. He should accept to save the lives of millions,” Joshua claimed God told him in a revelation.

Joshua said he called Jonathan by phone, stressing that he chose to relay it personally so that it will not affect votes’ pattern or be seen as a campaign for any of the candidate in the election. He added that he has shared with President Jonathan many revelations about Nigeria which eventually came to pass.

Joshua said Jonathan promptly sent a close aide to meet him.

After the presidential aide had worshipped at his church during a Sunday service, Joshua said he met him and relayed the revelation that  Jonathan’s regime had come to an end. “Soft landing – that is the language I sent to the president,” he told attendees.

Mr. Joshua described President Jonathan as a man who ‘has a heart for God’, revealing that he even spoke with the Nigerian president shortly before his historic concession call to President-elect Buhari.

“I said to him, ‘Your Excellency – all you need to say is ‘thank You, Jesus’, even when it seems there is nothing to be thankful for. He said, ‘Thank you, man of God’. Before I knew it, I saw the news on CNN that he had congratulated his opponent,”?Joshua said.?

Alluding to his prediction a week to the election that the dark cloud he saw covering Nigeria was lifting, he said that a bloody ‘war’ would have ensued if not for the prompt concession of power by President Jonathan.

“Look, Nigeria wanted change – everyone was yearning for change. An attempt to stop change leads to war, to a bloodbath… If Nigeria knows what we have overcome, we would dance,”?Joshua said.?

Joshua praised Jonathan’s tenure insisting that he had served his nation well despite the immense security challenges.

“I really want to salute President Jonathan. The President has served; he has done his best. It was just the season of crisis – and unfortunately he found himself at the lead in the season of crisis,”?he said.?

He prayed that people from the ‘South-South’ region in Nigeria where President Jonathan hails from would understand that ‘their son has become a hero’, adding that his actions prove the region is after a united Nigeria.

2015 Elections: T.B. Joshua Sees Death Of A Prominent Politician?

The general overseer of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B. Joshua, has revealed some things that will happen soon following the elections in Nigeria.

Speaking to his congregation on Sunday, March 29, 2015, the prophet said, he is seeing the death of a prominent politician due to ‘heated up’ politics in the wake of the closely fought Nigerian elections.

“I am seeing Nigerians heating up politics.

“They will heat up politics and a great man among the politicians will likely lose his life… I am seeing this kind of thing happening in the night.

“Wednesday and Thursday of this coming week and next week, make sure you fast and pray.”

Joshua stated this just before the close of his church service at 7pm in a message broadcast live via Christian television station Emmanuel TV.

He urged members of his congregation to remain prayerful on those specified days so as to save souls.

Earlier in the service, the cleric reminded congregants of a prophetic message he had shared last year concerning a ‘dark cloud’ hovering over Nigeria. He said God is beginning to remove the cloud.

Explaining what the ‘cloud’ represented, Joshua stated that it meant a situation whereby two political parties would declare themselves as election winners, leading to a state of ‘lawlessness’.

“Whoever wins the race, let us put Nigeria first, the nation first.

“The dark cloud I saw last year was two declarations but I can see the finger of God. Thank you for your prayers.”

He urged his congregants to avoid violence, and not allow themselves be used by politicians to cause bloodshed, while adding that do or die is not politics.

The man of God said: “There is a difference between your faith and politics.

“Don’t play politics as if it is your faith. ‘Do or die’ is not politics. Politics is a game. When you lose, you say, ‘Thank You, Jesus’; when you win, you say, ‘Thank You, Jesus’.

“Your future and the future of this nation – Jesus will ask you to give account. What we are doing now is for generations yet unborn. Don’t trade this future for money, thuggery or corruption.”

T.B. Joshua also predicted that an international terrorist will be captured.

“A criminal they have been looking for, for many years, who has been terrorising the world – I am seeing him being caught and displayed to the world on international media,”  he announced.

Before the elections, the cleric had warned Nigerians to be aware of fake political party people, saying he foresees a plane crash.

Pastor T.B. Joshua is famous both in Nigeria and abroad for his religious activities. He performs miracles and conducts deliverance. The cleric also makes predictions about events that will take place on the national and international stage.

TB Joshua Speaks On Coming Elections; Warns Of Plane Crash

On Sunday 15th March 2015, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a warning to Nigerians over the upcoming elections, further adding that he foresaw an imminent plane crash within Nigeria.

“Pray for Nigeria because I am seeing a plane crash,” Joshua stated in a service televised live via Christian channel Emmanuel TV. “It’s not a good thing to lose personalities again,” he added, specifying that prayer and fasting should be especially offered from 19th to 23rd.

Addressing the contentious elections scheduled to hold on March 28th, TB Joshua said:

“The challenge Nigeria is facing – on the day of voting, when you drop your votes in the ballot box, you will know who is PDP and who is APC. It’s a parable; very delicate. Because everybody plays a game; we deceive ourselves. ‘So this man voted for this party but he’s in that party’.”

Joshua stated that a dark cloud was hanging over the nation. “The cloud is darker. When it is about to rain, you cannot see in front again,” he vividly described.

The cleric further emphasised that vengeance was nigh for the perpetrators of the building collapse that left 116 dead last year September, insisting it was an attack. “There must be vengeance concerning what happened here. Both the slaves and masters must pay the price.”

He stated he was unhappy due to the innocent blood spilled in his church premises and the refusal of those responsible to admit. “God gave me an order that I should continue this work – so I must do it. Nothing can separate me from the work of God but your prophet is not happy. I will be happy when vengeance comes,” he stated, with a markedly stern countenance.

“Why I Can’t Stop Tragic Visions When I See Them” – TB Joshua

The General Overseer of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations(SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua has granted an exclusive interview in ‘Read Us’, the official magazine … Excerpts:

QUESTION: What is the secret of your calmness in the midst of the storm?

ANSWER: My calmness is peace of heart, which reflects in the life I live. This peace of heart is the source that calms the storm. When Joseph was in the dry pit where there was no air, food, water or life, it was that peace of heart that sustained him. When everything seems to go wrong, with peace of heart, you can press on. With peace of heart, you can press on, whatever life brings. Remember what David said in Psalm 23:4 – “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil” – because he had peace of heart.

QUESTION: We saw on Emmanuel TV that when you returned from Colombia, you said, “There is a
cloud that covers Nigeria… Cloud means trouble. Look at what is happening here. You will not see it on national TV but if you learn that they bombed here, one of you will call CNN that they have bombed The SCOAN… I am telling you something far but now, I am telling you something as close as my mouth.” What you said came to pass but why could you not stop it happening?

ANSWER: A servant cannot be greater than his master. I am a servant, taking orders and receiving orders. What He tells me, I say, and what He shows me, I see. His will must always supersede.

QUESTION: The people that died in the tragedy – why do you call them martyrs? What does it mean?

ANSWER: Yes, they had an appointment with God and they didn’t let God go.

QUESTION: How did you manage to put up a CCTV camera directed toward the sky when it is supposed to be focused on a subject or object? How did you have a CCTV camera positioned near the bottom of the building which caught the bomb exploding?

ANSWER: That is because I am a man of vision and mission. Without evidence and proof, I would not remain the man of God you know. God will never allow a challenge that will surmount us; we are always greater than our challenges.
1 Corinthians 10:13 – God will never allow a servant to be tempted beyond what he can bear because the beginning of his mission and the end of his mission are under God’s eyes. By this, we know a man of God.

QUESTION: But for the CCTV footage that showed the strange plane and the explosion, what might have been the situation when this happened? What story would you have told?

ANSWER: You mean, if there was no CCTV to capture the plane and the blast of the bomb? Then, there is no vision. A man without vision is a man without God. This is what Gamaliel said in Acts 5:38-39 – “And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it – lest you even be found to fight against God.”

Akoko Youths Urge T.B Joshua To Relocate Home

Youths in Akoko Area of Ondo State have urged their kinsman and founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Pastor T.B Joshua to quickly relocate home in continuation of his pastoral duties.

Besides, they urged the federal government to constitute a high- powered panel to carry out independent investigations on the collapsed guest house at SCOAN.

Arigidi-Akoko in Akoko Northwest local government of the state is the home town of SCOAN founder.

The concerned youths under the aegis of Congress of Akoko Youths(CAY)in a statement signed by its President, Babatunde Momoh and Trustees Chairman, Olanipekun Olugbenga decried the move by some government agents to distort facts by deliberately shifting blames of the saboteurs to the church founder.

The group called for thorough investigations on the alleged assassination attempt on the life of the Pastor.

The Akoko Youths wondered why the state agencies quickly rushed to the press to grant them indicting statements without proper investigation of the incident.

They said “the government should encourage the man of God considering his significance and economic support, charity, employment, international and local aids, scholarship and broken home reconciliation among others.
