TB Joshua’s critics driven by envy – Prophet Onuoha warns clerics, politicians



TB Joshua’s critics driven by envy – Prophet Onuoha warns clerics, politicians

The General Overseer (GO) of Christ Foundation Miracle Int’l Chapel, Prophet Josiah Chukwuma Onuoha has chided clerics, especially those denigrating late Prophet Temitope Balogun (TB) Joshua in death, advising them to leave judgment to God.

He said most of the clerics criticizing the late Prophet were being driven by envy.

He advised that all, especially public servants and pastors, should take a cue from the passing of Prophet Joshua and realize that God can take anybody’s life “suddenly and instantly without any warning sign.”

Prophet Onuoha, who stated this during a media chat expressed dismay that even men of God, who he said should know better, were among those disparaging the person and style of the late founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, who died on June 5, 2021, seven days to his 58th birthday.

Although Prophet Onuoha noted that he was not in a position to judge anybody and that “I never met TB Joshua and didn’t know him one-on-one. But I loved his good works of charity and remarkable humility.”

He advised that people should allow God to judge the late prophet, “who had already finished his race on earth and gone to rest”.

While alleging that most of the clergymen who criticised Prophet TB Joshua were driven by sheer envy, Onuoha charged all clerics to emulate TB’s style of unlimited humility and charity works.

He said: “He ran a good race. Pray for TB Joshua’s soul and thank God for using him effectively to touch many lives.

“The spirit of God told me that Prophet TB Joshua had accomplished his assignment on earth and that his time was up.

“After I heard about his death and was praying, the Lord showed me where the prophet was on top of a long truck fully loaded with rice, sweating as he distributed bags of rice to people.

“He was wearing shorts and a T-shirt and personally unloading the bags of rice, which represents when he was working on earth. The man has accomplished his duties on earth and gone to rest and some people are still here labouring assiduously to tarnish his good works.

“As far as I am concerned, Prophet Joshua ran a good race but many people refused to acknowledge his good works out of sheer jealousy.

“He was a very humble man of God who always helped poor widows and the less privileged.

“Those who had issues with his style and condemned him should realize that only God heals, Satan does not heal or do good.

“If it was the evil spirit, as had been alleged in some quarters, that TB Joshua operated with, then such ‘demons’ should be commended for feeding, healing, liberating and empowering several people across the world through the Prophet.

“I have a family friend that was cured of her infirmity during one of TB’s ministration. The late Prophet fed many widows and took care of several needy individuals across the world through financial assistance,” he further stated.

“Did any beneficiary of his regular rice distribution die after consuming the food? Did anyone die after receiving financial assistance from him?

“Come to think of it, those that are now fighting the man after his death, assuming their castigations hold any water, what effort did they make to correct him when he was alive?

“All the men of God that are condemning TB Joshua today, how many times did they approach him to advise him? How many times did they gather to offer corporate prayers for TB Joshua, his church and family?

“Every good Nigerian, not only Christians, should stand by the Joshua family and mourn with them because the church, Yorubaland and Nigeria as a whole recorded a huge loss in Prophet TB Joshua’s death.

“I watched Emmanuel TV the day the man died and I saw many widows crying at the gate, lamenting helplessly and asking who will now take care of us now that daddy is gone? To such people, TB was their all.

“I know several people that got their healing through TB’s prayers and ministrations. To such people, he was God-sent. And all those were done with evil powers, then that demon must be a good guy.

“It is a shame that all sorts of evil would be happening in the country and you hardly find men of God speak up. But they quickly find their voices at the death of a cleric like them.

“Let all those castigating the late prophet pray to be like him and touch lives like him to make the world a better place.

“Let politicians and evil men learn from TB Joshua’s case that death can strike anybody anytime no matter the level of one’s smartness, position, age, location, sex or personality.

“TB Joshua did a lot of charity and God honours those that do good works.

“If his good deeds superseded his sins, he will surely obtain favour from God,” he said.

Cholera outbreak in Cross River Community claims 51 lives



The death toll from the Cholera outbreak in Ekureku, Abi Local Government Area, Cross River State, has risen from 20 on Saturday to 51 on Monday.

Bernard Egbe, the clan head of the community, stated this when he received Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Sandy Onor, who was in the community to sympathise with them.



The clan chief, who described the situation as unfortunate, stated that many people infected with the disease were being treated at various health facilities in the area.

He went on to say that four of the victims being treated were in critical condition.

He stated that they had received assistance from WHO, UNICEF, and state government officials.

The cholera outbreak, which began on Thursday, affected ten villages in the Ekureku clan, he said.





Mr Onor, the PDP governorship candidate, said he felt the people’s pain but urged them to remain hopeful.

He stated that if elected, he would ensure that the people of the state have safe drinking water.
He gave cash as a consolation prize to each of the Ekureku community’s ten affected villages.




Meanwhile, Janet Ekpeyong, the Director-General of the state Primary Healthcare Development Agency, stated on Sunday that the state government is on top of the situation.





She stated that the government had used both human and material resources to stop the spread of the disease.

“The state Government has deployed a response team together with representatives from the World Health Organisation, the Nigerian Red Cross and Wash Programme.






“The combined team have all intervened accordingly and helped to save lives and prevent further spread of the disease,” she stated.







A case of the disease has also been reported in a remote village in the state’s Odukpani Local Government Area.

Iwara Iwara, Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Health, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday.







Mr Iwara stated that the outbreak was reported on Sunday night and that the government had sent men and materials to the area.

Currency hawkers selling scarce new naira notes at party venues.



Despite complaints that several bank branches had run out of the small quantities of the newly redesigned naira notes allocated to them by their head offices as early as 12 noon on Thursday, large wads of the new notes have saturated party venues, with hawkers charging N200 on N1,000.





On Thursday and Friday, journalists who visited banking halls in several cities across the country, particularly Lagos and Abuja, confirmed that there was a limited supply of the redesigned notes, as bank tellers mixed a few notes with the old ones for over-the-counter withdrawals, while automated teller machines continued to dispense old bank notes.






Further investigation revealed that several bank branches had yet to receive their new note allocations, with many bank officials informing our correspondents that the new notes were still on their way.

On the other hand, at a party in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Saturday, a woman was seen freely hawking newly redesigned wads of N200 bank notes.







However, officials at some of the bank branches that still had the new notes told reporters that each cashier was given N100,000 of the new N1,000 for onward disbursement to customers seeking over-the-counter payments, and that they do not yet have the N500 and N200 denominations.








Customers were also seen depositing old bills over the counter, while cashiers at bank branches were handing out more old naira notes.

Central Bank of Nigeria had earlier clarified on its website under currency management, that it is against the law to sell currency banknotes.

The victims of the accident were taken to Ageva General Hospital in Okene, Ajunko Clinic and Maternity in Ibilo, and Ogbagidi General Hospital in Okene, according to Dawulung.






He said: “When the accident, which involved an IVECO trailer conveying cows and 45 persons down South, occurred by a graveyard just a few kilometres to Ogori Magongo along Okene-Ogori road, Kogi, our officers and men were timely in response to it.”

“Our officers in conjunction with the Police and military personnel came to the rescue and rushed the injured to four different medical centres for medical treatment. The corpses of the dead have also been deposited at the morgue of the Ageva General Hospital, Okene.”
