The crisis rocking the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, has taken a fresh twist, with members of the Church rejecting Evelyn Joshua, wife of the late Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, as the deceased successor.
The members under the aegis of Global Congress of SCOAN, (GCSM), said Evelyn is not qualified to succeed Prophet T.B Joshua as a leader of SCOAN.
The GCSM explained that T.B. Joshua never anointed Evelyn to succeed him.
SCOAN has been experiencing a leadership crisis following the death of its founder a few months ago.
Amid the leadership tussle, the Church had confirmed her as Prophet T.B Joshua’s successor.
However, GCSM explained that SCOAN’s new leader should be from the prophets who served the late T. B Joshua.
GCSM made the remark in a statement signed by Adedeji Opeyemi, President of GCSM and Secretary, Brown.
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.”
