The widow of Late Pastor Temitope Balogun Joshua a.k.a T.B. Joshua, Evelyn Joshua has said that she is not amazed at the death of her husband describing it as an act of God.
She spoke when a delegate from the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, led by the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, paid her a condolence visit in the Ikotun area of Lagos.
TB Joshua passed on in Lagos on Saturday at the age of 57, a week to his 58th birthday.
His widow, while speaking to officials of the state government, said the death did not come to her as a surprise.
She said: “What happened was an act of God. There is time for everything, like my husband would say. That was the word I knew from him very well. This is the job he was known for. This is what he was living for. That is what he was going to die for. So, it didn’t come to me as a surprise. I wasn’t surprised when it happened. As we all know, he was in service that day. So, that’s it.”
Joshua’s wife appealed to Sanwo-Olu to participate actively in her husband’s burial, which she said would be made public very soon.
Speaking, Elegushi responded: “We are here on the directive of the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu to pay a condolence visit and offer prayers to the family of our beloved pastor and prophet TB Joshua.”
