The federal government through the honorable minister of information has pleaded with Prophet T.B Joshua, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), to give second thought to his planned relocation from Nigeria.

The information minister, Lai Mohammed, said such move if allowed to come to pass obviously will not be in the best interest of the country.
According to The Nation in a chat with journalists during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Nigerian Association of Tour Operators (NATOP) in Ikeja, Lagos, the information minister said that Prophet Joshua’s decision was unfortunate.

The minister therefore called for dialogue between the prophet and the authorities over whatever challenges he may have being going through.

According to him, “That will be very unfortunate in the sense that if he such plan comes to pass, it will affect our tourism in Nigeria. Prophet Joshua is an important person, he must bear with us”.

He went further, “This is his country. If he moves out and go to South Africa (for example), the revenue will go to South Africa”.

“It is better that Prophet Joshua sits down with the relevant authority and resolve whatever problem he has. If I have access to him this is exactly what I am going to tell him,” Mohammed said.

Prophet T.B Joshua had said he was relocating to Israel may be because of a hostile environment. The Prophet also said Israel had given him land in a choice area to set up if he eventually comes to the country.

“This is the most persecuted ministry in the world. Who are the people persecuting the ministry? My people, Africa!

The Prophet further said; “That is why I choose to live a lonely life. If you want to see me, come to this church. I don’t go out. It has not been easy – because I don’t know who is a friend or who is an enemy”.

“If you discover that T.B. Joshua is not around, I am in a revival. I live in the church here. I don’t have a house outside”.

“What happened to me from the beginning of my ministry is enough to chase me out of this country. But I am still in your midst.

“Upon the persecution and hatred, I decided to follow the path of love. You show hatred; I show love. When I go for a revival, you will see the stadium full but I am not carried away by that. I leave where I’m celebrated than live where I’m persecuted,” Joshua said.

Meanwhile, I want to believe that the federal government would be able to persuade him to stay. Also, report has it that Chief Fani Kayode said he wouldn’t allow Prophet T.B Joshua to relocate Church to Israel. 

Lets pray that people like Fani Kayode and other eminent personalities in the country do something very urgent to avert such plan.
