The Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has expressed shock over the death of popular televangelist and founder of the Synagogue of All Nations (SCOAN), T.B Joshua.

According to the governor, T.B Joshua's death was a great loss to the Christian community in Nigeria and beyond.

His Chief Press Secretary, Olisa Ifeajika, in a statement said the governor commiserated with the Joshua family, members of SCOAN and the people and Government of Ondo State.

He added that the deceased would be greatly missed for his humble teachings, meekness and wise counsels, and particularly for his good heart and grandiose philanthropy to the needy and humanity.

“It is with great sadness that I, my family, the government and people of Delta commiserate with the Christian community, the Joshua family and the entire SCOAN on the passing away of a renowned televangelist, Prophet Temitope Joshua.

“He was a strong voice in the Christian community where he commanded great following, performed miracles and taught the word of God with passion.

“His death, no doubt, is a great loss not just to his family and the Synagogue Church of All Nations, but to our country and beyond as his teachings and support to the less-privileged would be greatly missed.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his church and entire Christendom for his soul to repose peacefully and for the fortitude to the family to bear his demise,” the governor said.
