The Arole Oduduwa & Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has urged Nigerians particularly admirers of the founder of Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua who died recently to do beyond just morning the man of God.
Ooni Ogunwusi who described T.B Joshua’s demise as a huge loss to Nigeria, especially the Yoruba race, described the clergyman as a complete follower of Christ and an epitome of kindness who led by example.
“Aside from being a clergyman, prophet T.B Joshua went several steps ahead to become a globally celebrated philanthropist, advocate of a justice-filled society and prominent sports lover.
“In 2009, TB Joshua started a football club, My People FC, as part of efforts to help the youth. Two members of the team played for Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets in the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
“Sani Emmanuel, who apparently lived in The SCOAN for several years, was Nigeria’s top-scorer and the tournament’s MVP. Emmanuel and his colleague Ogenyi Onazi signed professional contracts with SS Lazio and later became a key player in the Super Eagles from 2012 to 2017.
“While it is a fact that his departure is currently being missed by all, I urge the Christendom to go beyond just mourning and pick lessons from the well spent lifetime of this great man of God.
“The preaching and teaching of the word of God must not stop while the act of giving through philanthropy my also be sustained as initiated and maintained by Prophet T.B Joshua.” The Ooni said.
