Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor on Wednesday, paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Prophet T.B. Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, in the Ikotun area of the state.
Governor Sanwo-Olu also offered prayers for the family over the passing of the popular cleric.
The State Commissioner for Home Affairs, Anofiu Olanrewaju Elegushi, who represented the governor during the condolence visit, was accompanied by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Civic Engagement, Princess Aderemi Adebowale; the Presiding Chaplain, Chapel of Christ The Light, Venerable Ezekiel Oluwadare; Directors of the State’s Ministry of Home Affairs, among others.
The commissioner later presented a letter officially signed by the governor to the family and the church.
Speaking, the commissioner stated that the delegation was on the visit to condole with the family and the church over Prophet Joshua’s death, even as prayer was offered that God should grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
“We are here to condole with your family and the church over the death of Prophet T. B. Joshua.
“We are here to show our sympathy and to also offer our own prayers for the family. That’s why we visited SCOAN today,” Elegushi said.
The wife of the deceased, Evelyn Joshua, thanked the delegation for the visit, describing the death of her husband as an act of God, which she said did not come as a surprise.
“What happened is an act of God. There is a time for everything. It didn’t come to me as a surprise. I appreciate your coming,” she said.
Prophet Joshua’s wife said the family needed the presence and support of the Lagos State government during her husband’s burial.
