The Church of All Nations, SCOAN, has refuted media reports on the appointment of wife of the wife of late Prophet TB Joshua as the new spiritual leader in the church.
In a press briefing to update the public on burial plans for the late pastor, the church did not mention if they had appointed another leader. instead, they said these sorts of announcements will come out when the church is fully ready and that it is “God’s anointing” that will direct them on this matter.
“There’s no answer, because this isn’t an administrative issue,” one of the church’s representative said.
This is coming after multiple media reports claim that the church is considering TB Joshua’s widow Evelyn to assume leadership.
The church also released the program for the funeral of their late founder ‘Prophet TB Joshua.’
They say the burial program will run for one week from 5 July to 11 July and everything will happen in Lagos, Nigeria.
Will the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN attend TB Joshua’s burial?
On if the Christian Association of Nigeria will be involved in the funeral, the church didn’t give a clear answer, but acknowledged that CAN reached out to SCOAN after their leader’s death and say TB Joshua is a “friend to all, enemy to none”.
Program activities for T.B Joshua funeral
All activities will be broadcasted live on Emmanuel.tv, the company’s official website.
Also, SCOAN say they hope people will follow all the week-long activities on their social media channels.
