SCOAN clarifies alleged leadership battle in church


By Henry Okonkwo

The leadership of Synagogue Church Of All Nations has debunked reports that there was a heirachy battle in the church.

Following the death of SCOAN’s founder, Prophet Temitope Joshua, there has been series of speculations on who succeeds him.

Wife of the late prophet, Mrs Evelyn Joshua, was appointed to succeed her husband as leader of the church but some media reports claimed that there were indications that one of the disciples of Joshua was angling to take over the leadership.


However, reacting to a fresh report by a popular newspaper, SCOAN, in a statement posted on the ministry’s Facebook page on Thursday, said there was no succession battle in the church.

“We are sons and daughters of love and shall continue to let love lead as we follow the instructions laid down by Prophet TB Joshua.
