The founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), T.B Joshua has been slammed on social media for suspending his Sunday Service because of the coronavirus.
The controversial Nigerian televangelist whose full name is Temitope Balogun Joshua claimed early this month that heavy rains would wash away the pandemic by this Friday and that there would be no trace of the deadly virus.
He specifically mentioned 27th of March as the day the coronavirus would disappear.
Sunday service cancelled
With the increasing number of Coronavirus case, Joshua resorted to delivering sermons virtually through his TV channel.
“There will be no gathering this Sunday and Monday. Meet TB Joshua on Emmanuel TV at the usual time of the Sunday Service. TB Joshua and his team will pray with you and counsel you as you and your family watch Emmanuel TV.
Distance is not a barrier. A good Christian is a good citizen. Thank you for your obedience” read a statement issued by his Church.
Nigerians and people from other parts of the world took to social media to remind him of his prophecies.

Unfortunately TB Joshua’s prophecy will not come to pass. Tomorrow there will be new infections around the world but God is bigger than man. Men are flawed. 1 man will not define who God is. Our God is great.— 冠军 (@KayKintu) March 26, 2020
