There is serious trouble in TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), following the emergence of a rebel group.
The group which which styled itself the Global Congress of SCOAN Members (GCSM) in a statement on Tuesday, rejected the leadership of the founder’s wife, Evelyn Joshua, describing it as fraudulent.
The statement released in Akure was signed by Adedeji Opeyemi as President of GCSM and Brown Chimieze as secretary.
“We are worried about the emergence of Mrs. Evelyn Joshua, the wife of the late founder who made 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 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?”, the statement queried.
