Tributes pour in for Nigerian televangelist
Supporters of the proclaimed prophet from all walks of life were shocked by the untimely passing of the 57-year-old. From what we understand, there’d been no indication of Joshua possibly suffering from a terminal illness. Therefore, the question of how he may have passed lingers on in the minds of many.
Alas, Twitter was flooded with tributes sent to the televangelist. The EFF also issued a statement, sending its deepest condolences to Joshua’s family and his followers.
“Millions across the world and in Nigeria particularly, will always remember him for the spiritual and pastoral care he ministered to the nation and the world with vigour and selfless commitment to the Word of God,” the party wrote.
