The Synagogue Church of All Nations’ (SCOAN) current plight has taken a new turn, with members of the Church reportedly rejecting Evelyn Joshua, the late Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua’s widow, as the deceased successor.
Evelyn is not qualified to succeed Prophet T.B Joshua as SCOAN’s leader, according to members of the Global Congress of SCOAN, (GCSM).
T.B. Joshua never anointed Evelyn to succeed him, according to the GCSM. Following the death of its founder a few months ago, SCOAN has been undergoing a leadership crisis.
The Church has confirmed her as Prophet T.B Joshua’s successor during the leadership squabble. SCOAN’s new leader, according to GCSM, should come from the prophets who served the late T. B Joshua.
The remark was made by GCSM in a statement signed by Adedeji Opeyemi, President of GCSM and Brown’s Secretary. The GCSM 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 an 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.”
