As more reactions continue to trail the collapse of a section of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Ikotun-Egbe Lagos, founder of the church, Prophet T.B Joshua has given negative commentators some stick, telling them that they were rubbishing the country’s image before the international community.
He made the statement during a teaching posted on the church’s official YouTube page titled “a cloud that covers Nigeria… as close as my mouth.”
In the video, Joshua bemoaned the way the media and other Nigerian’s have been given the country “bad press” adding that since the tragic collapse of the building on Friday, September 12, 2014, nothing but negative reports have emanated from the media over the incident which claimed the lives of over a hundred people.
Joshua Said: “I just came back from Colombia. Although, I intended to travel from there to another country, but I came back home because there is a cloud that covers Nigeria. I want to witness how this cloud will dispel. Cloud means trouble.
“Look at what is happening here, you will not see it on a national TV but if you learn that they bombed here, one of you will call CNN that they have bombed Synagogue. All what is happening, you will never see it on the pages of national or international newspapers.
“You will never see every good thing that happens here (in SCOAN) on these media channels. But if anything bad happens in front of the church, one of you Nigerians, will be the one to make a call. You are destroying your country, selling your country for nothing. It is a very painful thing. You are the ones destroying your country, you, Nigerians.
“The image you are giving to your country is bad. You destroy your image. You say your nation is bad, everything is bad, even anything good is bad. I am telling you something far, but now, I am telling you something as close as my mouth.
“One thing is clear, I have never seen where lies overcome truth. Take note of that. I have never seen where lies overcome truth. Truth will always prevail. I pray, Father, let your will be done, in Jesus’ name,” he concluded.
