The wife of the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Temitope Joshua, Mrs Evelyn Joshua, will replace him as General Overseer of the church.
Evelyn was married to Joshua for 31 years and had three children together until his death on June 5 at the age of 57.
According to France-based AfricaNews, elders of the church met and declared Evelyn the successor to the late televangelist.
A top aide of the late cleric was quoted as saying, “Someone must take charge immediately and give spiritual direction on the mode of service continuity. So much spiritual and financial effort went into building SCOAN and it cannot just waste away (sic).”
Reports say Evelyn, who met TB Joshua over 30 years ago, was said to have been serving as the second-in-command to her husband before his death earlier this month, performing the role of a preacher and offering counselling to church members.
