18 Foreign Leaders of Synagogue Dissociate Themselves From Suit Against Evelyn Joshua

The new leader of The Synagogue Church of All Nations ( SCOAN ) has announced that it would commence open church service to all its members soon following leading by God.

This is coming one and a half years after the outbreak of COVID-19 which led to the restrictions of public gatherings in the country.

Mrs. Evelyn T. B Joshua stated on Sunday at a press briefing that although members and leaders are eager to begin services, “we have to first hear from the Lord and be guided by the revelations from the holy spirit before we can begin service.

“We are getting ready and even yearning to start services but we cannot go outside the will of God whose directive is what we shall continue to uphold, live and work on.”

Those who were present at the briefing on Sunday included the head of the Environment department, Engr. Niyi Jegede, members of the Finance department, Messrs Tunde Olanipekun, and Abraham Showumi and the chairman of the Welfare department, Mr. Kola kareem .

Mrs Joshua stated that before the demise of the founder of SCOAN, Prophet Temitope Joshua, SCOAN was yet to start services unlike other churches and that the peculiarity of the church where foreigners are all eager to be present amidst the world health crisis even right now has always been put into consideration.

Her words: “We have no fear whatsoever but don’t forget a good Christian must also be a good citizen. We have continued to pray for God’s mercy for our nation and the world. Besides, I am still mourning the passing of my husband. When the morning time is over and most importantly when the Lord intimates us to begin, we shall move swiftly in God’s grace. Be assured that God’s mercy endures and by His grace SCOAN shall come out stronger.”

On plans to reopen for service, a legal member representing the SCOAN legal department, Mr. James Akhigbe, revealed that various committees have been set up to ensure that there is smooth service in compliance with the Presidential Taskforce Committee’s recommendations on COVID-19 and the leadership is also waiting for the leading of the Holy Spirit.

“Very soon the church will commence service but we don’t do things based on human emotions, We don’t conduct the affairs of SCOAN to please people but we embark on project because we have heard from God. We are very hopeful that God will give us the green light. Meanwhile, we cannot say tomorrow because you cannot dictate to the Holy Spirit,” he said.

He added that various committees have been set up and being coordinated by Mrs. Moji Oguntoyinbo to ensure a smooth transition of the new administration.

Ooni Opens Up On Meeting With Buhari Over Igboho

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has disclosed what transpired during his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari over Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

In an interview with BBC, the monarch said the agitator rejected advice offered him by monarchs sent to dialogue with him.

Ooni said that during the meeting, Buhari was informed of the reasons for Igboho’s agitation.

In his reaction, Buhari said Igboho needed to be “calm and patient”.

The president also asked monarchs in the South-West to advise Igboho against moves that were lawless.

The monarch, who said Igboho had a just cause to fight, said he should have been more diplomatic.

He alleged that Igboho was misled by politicians, insisting that the activist deserved the support of monarchs in the region.

Ooni said he had forgiven Igboho and already working to get him freed from detention in Benin Republic.

He urged other Yoruba Nation agitators to consider dialogue.

He said: “I have always told the government to call the agitators for a dialogue. Sunday Igboho grew up in Ife. All that he has become today, started from Ife. He fought the Ife and Modakeke war and both lands belong to Ife. He is a son of the soil.

“He wanted to fight for his kinsmen. He stood up and fought for those killed in Oke Ogun. We thank God for preserving his life. He tried his best but he was overwhelmed by different pieces of advice from people.

“Many people advised him wrongly. He listened to them.

“I visited President Buhari on his case and we discussed it. I told him that Igboho is our son, he told me that he (Igboho) should stay calm and exercise patience. The president told me that monarchs should warn him to be calm.

“After I left Buhari’s place, I called on monarchs and elders of Yoruba land for a meeting to advise Igboho to exercise patience but Igboho did not listen. He started abusing everyone, including the monarchs I sent to him.

“He hurled so many bad words but he is still our son. God owns forgiveness. We’ve forgiven him. If he had listened, he wouldn’t have found himself in his current travail.

“We are trying our best to secure his release.
