SCOAN tight-lipped about leadership crisis following TB Joshua demise

The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), church of the late popular Nigerian televangelist, T.B. Joshua, has remained reserved about its next leader, despite claims making rounds in the media that the surviving widow, Evelyn Joshua, would ascend the seat.

At a recent press briefing to update the public about the burial plans for the late prophet, the church declined to answer whether or not an appointment has been made and who the office holder is.

A representative of the church said the information would be communicated according as the “anointing of God” directs, adding that the issue is not an administrative problem which could be dealt with administratively.

Meanwhile activities have halted since the reported death of the founder, which occurred on June 5, 2021 in his home at Lagos.

The church in the midst of the uncertainties, has scheduled a one-week event to celebrate the “life and legacy of God’s prophet T.B. Joshua—Not mine by God’s own” from July 5 to July 11, 2021.

T.B. Joshua’s funeral plans

Below is the list of events scheduled for the period:

• A candlelight procession will be held on Monday, July 5 from 6pm (GMT+1).
