A religious pilgrim to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Dr. Paul Ona, has decried what he described as incessant killings, kidnappings, insecurity, bad governance crimes and criminality which he said is currently ravaging the country and threatening the fabrics of her unity.
Dr. Ona, a Nigerian immigrant who said that he has lived in Britain for 25 years, added that bad publicity which has trailed escalating insecurity in Nigeria has dealt a deadly blow on the already battered image of the country, everywhere in the world.
He spoke during the week, at his guest house located near the SCOAN, after he attended one of the prayer sessions organized for visiting worshipper to the synagogue. According to him, the only good things going for Nigeria in today’s world are the likes of prophet T B Joshua and some Nigeria Technocrats who he said are changing the country’s narrative in their areas of endeavour. His words: “In these season and time when incessant insecurity, killings, kidnappings, Boko Haram insurgency, herder’s violence and Nigerians have become the proverbial dark sheep in every country of the world.
“They are hounded and treated with disgust at major international airports anywhere in the world. Most times passengers from Nigeria are selected out of national of other countries, and denied entry into different country around the world,” he said.
The obviously disenchanted Nigerian, however, said that only the like of T B Joshua, whose ministry he said has touched different nationals either through miracles or direct charity activities by his Emmanuel T V partners, are creating positive impact for Nigeria.
“T.B Joshua is going round the world and touching many with love. Evidence of his charitable acts is manifest everywhere. He has built schools for needy communities, intervened in many countries that are ravaged by natural disasters, and all over Europe, Asia, America, India, Africa even in Israel, the Nigerian televangelist has excelled in charity works. “It is no longer news that, the largest number of religious pilgrim’s flock into Nigeria because of T b Joshua’s miracle service at the SCOAN.
These visiting worshippers go back home and say positive things about Nigeria because of the ministry of Prophet T b Joshua, Dr, Ona related. Although, Joshua is ostracized by fellow Pentecostal pastor back home, his regular crusades in different part of the word has witnessed l a r g e turnout for instance, in France, Britain, America and lately in Israel where he also was honoured by Israeli authorities.
Other Nigerians said to be creating positive impact and image for Nigeria include technocrats who have excelled in different fields of endeavour. They also include some Nigeria who appointed as cabinet ministers in Canada, Britain and other exalted public office in America.
He added that prophet Joshua tops the list of Nigerians who are changing the narrative of the country simply because his ministry not only preaches love for all. “He also goes all out to show love to all in a unique way. For that reason also, Nigerian earns huge foreign currency through visiting worshippers to the synagogue.
“One lesson Nigerians should learn from the ministry of T B Joshua is love. If we allow genuine love which he has demonstrated to all not minding race, tribe, colour and nationality, Nigeria won’t be in the kind of insecurity, hate that it is witnessing today,” Dr. Ona said.
