By Owolola Adebola 

The auditorium hall of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) was full to its capacity on Sunday during the memorial service for late Prophet TB Joshua as his wife, Evelyn Joshua, took to the podium to relieve intimate moments with her late husband.
Amidst thunderous ovation, Evelyn told the congregation that she was no longer mourning but celebrating a man that had shown millions of people how best to relate to each other.
” My husband was a total man.He was a father. He was everything to have in a man.He was the father of my three promising children”.
Speaking further, she said “SCOAN as is it today has its own history.
“Everything to the glory of God. Yes, we had our own fair share of the challenges of life.

“Of course, we were satisfied with the way things were going, thereafter, we started the church.

“We used to sit on the mat, or on a wooden chair and I became the first Sunday School teacher in the church and here we are today. Everything to the glory of God”.

According to her, love was tested and she fought for love and attention, and then appreciated two elderly women whom she said became their counselors.

“I fought for love and attention and today I want to appreciate two virtuous women who became our counselors and I had the two elderly women as friends.

“Mama Victoria Akinola and Mrs. Felicia Olowofekun who has passed on.

She added “I remembered one Sunday, I went to his office and I said you are not to attend to anybody today but me, he brought Mrs. Akinola who guided me with wisdom that kept me from the path of error.

” I want to say thank you for wisdom and motherly love advice and Mrs. Felicia Olowofekun of blessed memory.

“When I look back now, I realized that there are so many important things than those concerns of mine then.”

“I remember one year cross over night, I had cooked my rice, stew and chicken when TB Joshua who walked into the room with a long face, came with papers and threw them on the floor and I summoned the courage to pick the papers.

” On the front page was his face with horns, sleeping with all kinds of animals. I faced him and said they are not speaking to him and I received an embrace.

“For the first time, I saw tears in his eyes, I want to thank God for his wonderful memories,” she said.

Evelyn stated further that, as a man of prayer, every morning he had his morning devotion with two songs he never missed and that as a young lady of about 21 or 22, she began to analyse the meaning of the songs and that prophetically, they all came to pass.

According to her, the second song (Whatever that can hinder me from the salvation of God should be removed), if it is going to be money, fame, children and wife, the holy spirit should remove him from it.

” The passion with which this young man sang that song, I knew, I was in for something.
“But I knew we were in this together until death do us part.”

Pastor Evelyn Joshua, while speaking as the leader of the church, said, “Speaking as the leader of this great commission, SCOAN, a year ago, today my heart was broken because I knew I will be called a widow.

“A year ago,TB Joshua, finished his race and left us, we wept, worried.

” But today we have gathered here not to mourn but to return all glory to God.

“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Here is the morning. Distinguished members and Emmanuel TV partners, I call unto you all to access our journey so far.

” We celebrate a friend to widows, a hard-working man, and father to the fatherless. he has always told us to be prepared and focused so as not to be excluded from heavenly blessings.

” We are all witnesses to all that has been happening since the church reopened, on December 5, 2021, exactly 6 months after TB Joshua passed on to glory.

“The vision has been carried on, the mission has remained the same and the Lord had been faithful in all ways.

” God has been at the centre of it all, despite what the ministry had been through,  we are inspired and energised by the strong arms of God and the powerful sustaining spirit of partners and members all over the world.

” The ship of the ministry is being steered by the God of T.B. Joshua as he has always done.

“We thank God for security and peace with which he blessed us with, sealing us with His precious blood. Our services have been growing in spiritual depth, divine impartation, healings, deliverances, and other areas.

“The SCOAN, the mountain is an assured place of meeting God through prayers and our partners have not stopped visiting the serene site I order to encounter God, we give glory to the name of the Lord for the marvelous miracles and deliverance taking place every moment at the mountain.

“We are determined to broaden the scope and relevance of Prophet TB Joshua’s legacy.

The MD said the stacking area has the capacity of containing 20 thousand units of containers before moving anywhere at any time, noting that the area covers six hectares of land and the management is willing to add more.

CRFFN rejects re-appointment bid of ousted Sam Nwakohu

Ousted CRFFN Registrar, Nwakohu
— appoints Uromta as Acting Registrar
—-shops for substantive Registrar.
The Eyewitness reporter
The Council for the Registration of Freight forwarding Practice in Nigeria (CRFFN) has thrown out the re-election bid of the outgoing Registrar of the Council, Sam Nwakohu.
In an emergency meeting of the council Thursday at its Abuja liaison office, the Council appointed Mrs. Chinyere Uromta, the Director of Regulations and Enforcement, as an acting Registrar pending the time a substantive registrar will be appointed.
The decision of the council to reject the reelection bid of the ousted Registrar was based on the recommendations of its ad hoc committee to look into the request of Nwakohu for a second term tenure.
The outgoing registrar, last year, at the December meeting of the council, submitted a letter, requesting to be considered for a second term shot at the lucrative position.
Consequently, the Chairman of the Council, Alhaji Abubakar Tsanni set up an ad-hoc committee, headed by Efeanyi Isikaku, to look into the request of Nwakohu and submit its report in two weeks.
“Following the completion of its assignment and submission of its report, the council, therefore, convened today (Thursday)in Abuja to deliberate on the next line of action to be taken in respect of the committee’s recommendations.
” The AdHoc committee made important recommendations with reference to the provisions of Public Service Rules as well as the council’s Act.
“The committee however, recommended that in order to avoid a vacuum after the expiration of the Registrar’s tenure, the council shall start making arrangements for a handover of the Registrar’s office to the most senior management staff of the council.
“Similarly, the committee also recommended that the Appointment Promotion and Discipline committee of the council be directed to start making preparations for reappointment or appointment of substantive Registrar”  Muftahu Ya’u, the chairman Committee on Media and Publicity of the governing council,  declared in a statement he sent to our reporter.
 “Finally, the council’s chairman soon after the adoption, approval, and ratification of the committee’s recommendations by members of the council directed the followings:
that arrangement for the Registrar’s handover to Mrs. Chinyere Uromta  Director, Regulations and Enforcement on 31st of January 2023.
“That committee on Appointment Promotion and Discipline go ahead to start preparations for reappointment/appointment of a new Registrar” the head of media and publicity of the council concluded.
It could be recalled that soon after Nwakohu made his ambition known to succeed himself as the Registrar of the council, he went on a lobbying spree, trying to woo the council members to buy into his ambition.
But sources close to the council whispered to our reporter that the second term bid of Nwakohu was dead on arrival due to lots of baggage he carries.
“There was no way he could have succeeded in his obnoxious bid to succeed himself.
Firstly, it was a general consensus among the freight forwarding confraternity that Nwakohu failed woefully as the registrar.
“He is incompetent, arrogant and someone not ready to learn,” a highly placed source said.
“Also, several allegations of financial sleaze against him have not been cleared.
“Similarly, the council members were not happy at the way Nwakohu handled the purchase of the CRFFN Abuja liaison office which cost they felt was inflated.
“All these and other uncharitable behavior of the outgoing registrar are enough reasons not to reappoint him as the Council registrar” the source claimed.
