Months after the death of Prophet TB Joshua of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), trouble looms as Mrs. Evelyn, the wife of the late prophet TB Joshua was appointed leader of the church headquarter in Lagos. As some members of the church rejected her leadership, claiming TB Joshua never anointed her as a successor.
Rejecting Mrs. Evelyn as the leader of SCOAN, the said church members claimed the late founder expected his successor to be from among the pastors in the church whom he had anointed, they also said that the rule has been swept aside by a few members whom they alleged were building stumbling blocks against the progress of the church.
Here Is What They Said:
” 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 ‘ 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?
TB Joshua never anointed Evelyn
The members also claimed that the late founder never anointed his wife to succeed him.
They also accused Mrs. Evelyn of planning to ” commercialize 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? ”
Evelyn Joshua says late TB Joshua remains SCOAN general overseer.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Evelyn had earlier said her husband remains the general overseer of the church even though he has gone to join his maker in heaven.
She made this known in a video posted on the church’s official Facebook page after her emergence as the leader of the church.
Mrs. Evelyn also made a clarion call to all partners and members to work hand-in-hand with her to move the ministry forward.
