OPC wants T.B. Joshua to remain in Nigeria, while seeking government’s intervention

The Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) has called on the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua who earlier made statements about relocating ministry to Israel, to consider remaining in Nigeria.This request was made by the founder and the president of OPC who is also the National Chairman of the Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), Dr. Frederick Fasheun in a press conference in Lagos.“TB Joshua intends relocating perceivably in order to escape persecution at home, founded SCOAN which commands up to two million local and international tourists annually,” Fasheun said.He charged the federal and Lagos State governments to immediately stop the ongoing judicial persecution of Prophet T.B. Joshua, and on  the other hand, commended the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who urged Pastor T.B. Joshua to shelve his decision to relocate to Israel.Fasheun also suggested reconstructing a link-road between the Synagogue Church and the international airport, plus regular electricity made available around location of church with maximum security guaranteed to the life and property of Church goers and residents.The OPC chieftain extended his appeal to the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), urging them to give Joshua a hand of fellowship by according him a befitting role as a model and mentor to young and upcoming clerics.T.B Joshua’s exit, according to Fasheun, would be one brain-drain incident too many and a tragedy of no mean proportion, as well as a national embarrassment if such personality went on self-exile from his Fatherland.“Nigeria stands to lose several positive dividends currently bestowed by SCOAN on not just Ikotun, Lagos, but also on the entire country; we shall be losing a giant intercessor, whose prayers are helping to sustain the peace and sanity of this country.“We shall be losing Prophet Joshua and SCOAN’s donations, charities and philanthropy worth no less than N8 billion in scholarships, disaster relief, house rent support, sports and sportsmen sponsorship and others,” he added.
