A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has saluted the courage and dedication to God and humanity by the Nigerian Pastor and the Prophet of the Synagogue Church of All Nation Temitope Balogun Joshua, which recently earned him the highest award in far away Paraguay.
Recall that the Chamber of Deputies in Paraguay decided to grant the National Order to the Communion Merit to the Nigerian preacher TB Joshua, two day ago after a special session in recognition of the prophet positive contribution to humanity.
The Bayelsa born politician who was reacting in a statement Friday in Abuja to the recent highest award conferred on the Prophet by the government of Paraguay, said it is high time Nigeria government value the likes of TB Joshua for making the country proud.
Frank said Paraguay’s honour on TB Joshua was not just for the man of God but “will definitely strengthen bilateral relationship between Nigeria government and Paraguay.
While calling on leaders at all level to emulate the good works of Prophet Joshua which has been speaking volume of him, the APC deputy publicity secretary observed that such award by Paraguay government does not go for anybody, “especially foreigners, and that is why it has to be debated in Parliament before it was conferred on the Prophet.”
While calling on the Nigerian government to ensure that the man of God is also honour at home, Frank said “Prophet TB Joshua’s philanthropic activities, not only in Nigeria but throughout Africa and entire world is not hidden to organisations and government of Nations all over the world.”
He, therefore, called on the popular Prophet not to relent but ensure that the grace of God upon his life continue to affect humanity.
Frank noted that Nigeria as a country is in need of good will of people like Prophet Joshua, so as to summon various challenges confronting her.
He also urged the man of God to continue to offer prayers to the unity and development of Nigeria at all time.
