Victims of Human Trafficking and Nigeria Migrants including returnees from Libya have vowed affection for the late Founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Pastor Temitope Joshua better known as T. B Joshua for his humanitarian support for the needy and downtrodden in society.
Executive Director Initiative for Youth Awareness on Migration Immigration Development and Reintegration IYAMIDR, Comrade Solomon Okoduwa disclosed this in a tribute in honour of the Cleric who passed on June 5, 2021 in Lagos State at the age of 57.
Okoduwa who is profound for championing the cause of Libya returnees, commended the fierce Preacher for his invaluable contributions and support for victims of human trafficking in Nigeria and Irregular Migration.
In a statement on behalf of the group, Okoduwa stressed that Prophet T.B Joshua typified the real essence of Christianity as exemplified by Jesus Christ as a Pan-Africanist whose love cuts across race, ethnic, religious, social status and other man-made barriers, adding that his family, the church and lovers of Christ should uphold and sustain his legacy.
“Prophet TB Joshua to us is an inspiration and will remain an inspiration forever. This is particularly so when we remember his invaluable contributions special support Nigerians who are victims of human trafficking and Irregular Migration.
“He (Prophet T. B Joshua) was one man to meet and go home a happier man. Libya returnees take you to be their father because you never rejected or shut your door against them. When they come in hundred and thousands, you ensure your kind gesture goes round no matter the number without asking which church they attend like others.
“A pan-Africanist, Senior Prophet TB Joshua believed and worked towards African renaissance. He exemplified the true essence of Christianity, and demonstrated God kind of life. He was an epitome of humility. I can’t forget the first time I met him, very humble and gentle.
“He (Joshua) was a passionate follower of Christ whose heart pants after God as the deer pants for the water brooks. He lived to see the lost saved; as an encourager, an intercessor, a minister of the gospel, a faithful follower and an example of the love of Jesus manifested through an earthen vessel.
“Indeed, this is a loss not only to Christian Faith , but also to the entire world which currently seeks to build legacies for qualitative and transformational leadership rooted in the fear of the Lord.
“Our consolation, however, rests on the fact that our father Senior Prophet TB Joshua is resting at the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ where he is already being commended for his good and faithful service on earth. May we all be comforted by this truth while trusting the Holy spirit to minister life to his immediate families, SCOAN and Emmanuel TV partners all over the world in Jesus Precious Name. Amen!”, the stressed.
