Malawian President Joyce Banda is among African leaders who have been to TB Joshua and is on record to have described the Nigerian prophet as her “spiritual father.”
Banda said she has been visiting Nigeria to worship at Prophet TB Joshua’s temple as “a follower of God”.
Last week President Banda visited Nigeria in what other observors said she sneaked to meet her spiritual father.
But in an interview published on Nigeria’s Sunday newspaper, The Punch, the ‘man of God’ clarified that “no president has ever visited this place in secret.”
To believers, senior Prophet T.B. Joshua is very famous for prophesying many global events including the death of former late President of Malawi Bingu Wa Mutharika.
He has slammed leaders who “do not obey the instructions” after leaving his Synagogue Church. The Prophet did not mention names.
“The reason why people visit a man of God is to receive instructions, his opinion about them or their country. But if they don’t follow it, yet the whole world knows that they are close to TB Joshua, it has no benefit,” he said.
The Prophet said seven Presidents have visited his church since inception.
“But each time presidents come to this place, I get query from God. When they come around, you won’t have time to attend to other people. They will block the road with their security and at the end of the day, they won’t do what you advise them to do,” he said.
Reports suggest that in discussion during her last previous visit to SCOAN, Prophet T.B Joshua told President Banda that according to a vision he was seeing, Malawi’s first female leader was only going to stay at the helm, no more than two years.
This is reported to have infuriated the Malawi leader.
Many other African leaders have literally turned the Synagogue church situated in Ikotun-Egbe, a Lagos suburb, into a pilgrimage centre of sorts.
They include President Omar Bongo of the Republic of Gabon, Goodwill Zwelithini, King of the Zulu from South Africa, Andre Kolimba, former president of the Central African Republic, ex-President Pascal Linssouba of Congo Brazaville and Yormie Johnson, the former Liberian warlord.
