TB Joshuas death, loss to football

Published by The Nation on Mon, 07 Jun 2021

By Morakinyo AbodunrinFormer national youth teams coach John Obuh has described the death of founder of Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), Temitope Balogun Joshua , better known as TB Joshua in Lagos yesterday as a huge loss to football.Obuh who led the Golden Eaglets to win silver when Nigeria hosted the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2009, had a solid relationship with the late clergy and he reckoned he was a football man through-and-through.This is not the kind of news that one want to hear but we cant question God, a crest-fallen Obuh told NationSport. Im still in shock over the news; and it is quite unfortunate that he left us at this time.Obuh who also handled the Flying Eagles at some point, noted that the history of Nigerian football development cannot be completed without a reference to late Joshua for his charitable gesture towards all the national teams.The truth is that Pastor T. B Joshua was the backbone of my success as a coach and he really assisted me especially when I was with the national team, Obuh further said.It is not only my teams but almost all the national teams and he was always ready to offer us financial support and prayers.He took care of several players and assisted those who had one injury or the other as if he was their father; his death is a huge loss to our football because he was one person who helped without asking for anything in return, noted Obuh.Meanwhile, sportsvillagesquare.com noted that SCOAN is known to have hosted scores of sports personalities who visited on religious and medical tourism. Among such, albeit controversially was Nwankwo Kanu, Daniel Amokachi, Joe Lasisi and others.It was reported that in 2009, TB Joshua started a football club, My People FC, as part of efforts to help the youth. Two members of the team played for Nigerias Golden Eaglets in the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup.Sani Emmanuel, who apparently lived in The SCOAN for several years, was Nigerias top-scorer and the tournaments MVP. Emmanuel and his colleague Ogenyi Onazi signed professional contracts with SS Lazio and later became a key player in the Super Eagles from 2012 to 2017.
