I’m not surprised by my husband’s death, TB Joshua’s widow declares

Evelyn, wife of the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Joshua, aka TB Joshua, on Wednesday, said the death of her husband was an act of God.

She spoke when a delegate from the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, led by the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, paid her a condolence visit in the Ikotun area of Lagos.

TB Joshua died in Lagos on Saturday at the age of 57.

His widow, while speaking to officials of the state government, said the death did not come to her as a surprise.

She said, “What happened was an act of God. There is time for everything, like my husband would say. That was the word I knew from him very well. This is the job he was known for. This is what he was living for. That is what he was going to die for. So, it didn’t come to me as a surprise. I wasn’t surprised when it happened. As we all know, he was in service that day. So, that’s it.”

Joshua’s wife appealed to Sanwo-Olu to participate actively in her husband’s burial, which she said would be made public very soon.

Speaking, Elegushi said, “We are here on the directive of the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu to pay a condolence visit and offer prayers to the family of our beloved pastor and prophet TB Joshua.”

The delegation later presented a condolence letter signed by the governor to the family of the deceased.

Meanwhile, there are indications that the cleric’s family will meet before the end of this week on the burial arrangement.
