THE wife of the late Prophet Temitope Joshua, Mrs Evelyn Joshua, has said that her first role in the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) was as a Sunday School teacher.

Evelyn made these remarks during the one-year anniversary of her husbands death on June 5, 2022.

She said the late prophet thought her several things, noting that he was a man of prayer and it was that that led her to him.

When we started the church, we sat on mats, we sat on wooden chairs. I became the first Sunday school teacher in the church and here we are today, she said.

The widow, who now heads the church, noted that she became a vegetarian because of him and fought for love and attention, adding that two women, Madam Victoria Akinola and Mrs Felicia Olowofela, helped her adapt to him, according to the News Express YouTube channel.

After Joshuas death suddenly seven days to his 58th birthday, SCOAN was closed for six months and resumed service on December 5, 2021, with limited attendance.

A succession crisis had ensued between the Joshua family, led by Evelyn, and some close followers of the founder who argued they should fill the vacant leadership position by virtue of how Joshua had held them dear in the administration of the church.

Eventually, Evelyn triumphed via a court suit FHC/L/CP/1109/2021 and court judgment, which pronounced her chairperson of the churchs Board of Trustees.
