“What happened is an act of God. There is time for everything. It didn’t come to me as a surprise. I appreciate your coming,” she said.
Mrs. Joshua said the family needs the government’s support and presence during the funeral.
Commissioner for Home Affairs Anofiu Elegushi, who represented Sanwo-Olu, presented a letter officially signed by the Governor to the family and the church.
The letter reads: “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.”

“He was a philanthropist, the Jesus of the time, and a man loved by all. He complied fully with the government’s rules on COVID-19.”
He prayed God to grant the family and SCOAN the fortitude to bear the loss.
