Ovation Magazine CEO Dele Momodu Pens Memo To TB Joshua Begging Him Not To Move Hus Church To Another Country.

Dele Momodu has written a very touching and overwhelming letter to the general overseer of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet T.B Joshua begging him to stay in Nigeria...





Read full letter below...

My dear Prophet, I’m very certain this letter must come to you as a big surprise. But that is the nature of this column. It is in the character of Pendulum to swing in the direction least anticipated. Today, it has chosen to navigate itself towards you, my dear man of God.


For avoidance of doubt, please, permit me to quickly explain a point so that mischief-makers may not attribute spurious motives to this epistle. I’m not a member of your congregation. I have never been. You and I have never discussed religion or worship. I have never approached you for special prayers or miracles. But I have been a great fan of yours nonetheless, for very exceptional reasons. I shall explain in a jiffy why I admire you warts and all.


No human being is perfect, and I’m sure that includes you, despite being a man of God. I’ve read and heard torrents of good and bad tales about you. But didn’t I read and hear a deluge of fairy-tales about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, your overall Master? It is normal for human beings to concoct true and imaginary tales about news makers. You have been a subject and victim of such incredible rumour-mongering over the decades that I have known you.


 Some have alleged that you are not a genuine disciple of God. They’ve alleged that you are fetish and use native jazz to heal miracle-seekers. Some have even called your miracles mere optical illusions. That you are nothing short of a magician but these myriad of detractors have never diminished your popularity globally.


I have continued to marvel at your awesome powers as demonstrated to the Unclad eyes on television, and two or more conclusions have emerged. If you use juju or whatever power to heal people, then it is positive healing. We all turn to doctors, pharmacists, surgeons and others in the days of medical challenges. The drugs we take emanate from herbs, local or foreign.


 The Indians and the Chinese in particular have been much wiser than us by developing their medicine to international standards. I have tried acupuncture in my adventurous days in Dubai and London. There is nothing wrong if God has given you special access to the secrets of herbs and roots. What makes it even more remarkable and extraordinary is that you escalate and amplify every miracle of yours with loud shouts of the name of Jesus. You’ve never called the names of other Gods or even witches and wizards on the pulpit. There are always local and international visitors to your synagogue of God. None has ever reported that he or she stumbled on an esoteric shrine perchance.


In fact, you have been a major source of foreign exchange earnings for Nigeria. It is difficult to imagine how many religious tourists pour into your church daily from different parts of the world. I’ve travelled extensively in Africa and beyond. There is hardly a flight I’ve flown on, especially in Africa, that I’ve not encountered your sworn and ardent followers. They love you endlessly and swear by your name. 


Many of them are distinguished personalities, well-educated and intelligent and not ignoramuses as many may wish to suggest. Presidents have attested to your miracles. I will mention one very good example that I am familiar with.


Long before the 2008 presidential election that ushered in President John Evans Atta-Mills in Ghana, you had called me one early morning to ask my opinion and projection ahead of the election. I remember telling you that Nana Akufo-Addo was tipped and favoured to win. Your response was that I was wrong and that God was going to perform a miracle for Professor Atta-Mills. True, the ways of God are not the ways of man. You went all out in your support for Atta-Mills, like you always do for people and causes you champion, and he actually won the election.


I was pleasantly surprised when you called me one early Sunday morning to invite me to the Synagogue. You said you remember how you had called me to support the aspiration of Atta-Mills and the useful tips I gave. Now that the man had won, he was coming for a thanksgiving service in your church and you felt it was only proper for me to be invited to attend. The service had ended by the time I meandered my way to Ikotun-Egbe, but I was fortunate and happy to meet Professor Atta-Mills in one of the private apartments you keep for your august visitors. 

I sat with Prof and probed him a bit about why he had travelled all the way to Nigeria in search of spiritual fortification. He told me in clear terms that he was not a buffoon and that as a Professor he was expected to act on empirical facts and not on raw sentiment or emotion.

Professor Atta-Mills said you had told him certain things that could never have been guess-work. For, example, he said you predicted with mathematical accuracy the unusual pattern and direction the election was going to take, the controversy that was going to come with it and the precise date the final verdict was going to be delivered, and they all came to pass. 


He said man being a natural doubter of things unseen should nevertheless not discountenance reality in the face of obvious facts. He said he was convinced that God was truly using you and he had no choice than to return to the Synagogue and publicly proclaim the power of God that had made the impossible possible through your intervention and intercession.
Let me now go to the relationship between us spanning nearly two decades. How did our paths cross? If my memory serves me right, I was approached by one of your media aides at the time, Jide Oshokoya, formerly of Today’s Choice magazine, who said you would like to meet with me. 


To cut a long story short, I accepted the invitation with mixed feelings. You had been much maligned by your traducers that I did not even know what to believe anymore. But as a good student of philosophy, I chose not to be as paranoid and sceptical as the French philosopher, Rene Descartes, who went to the extreme of doubting his own existence. I was prepared to meet you with an open mind but with every caution in case your intention was to turn me into a church member.


We met at the appointed time, after waiting for a while in a small restaurant on the ground floor before I was taken upstairs by your female staff. I felt a kind of tremor around you as everyone around was awestruck by you. The first thing I noticed was your simplicity and humility. You wore a round-neck t-shirt on top of jeans. We exchanged pleasantries and you told me how much you loved the creativity and originality that you saw in Ovation International magazine. I was flattered. You asked how much it would cost to be featured in such a high quality magazine and once we agreed on the figure you instantly booked 5,000 copies to be sent from our printers in London to the church.

 I was deeply touched because you did not beg for freebies. Many of our friends do not see media as business. They treat us as lambs of God who carry away the burden of the world, the main reason many media empires collapse ever before they are built.

Let me reiterate at this juncture that you’re a good man for being such a sympathetic benefactor. I never imagined the extent of your generosity until the magazines arrived from England and I asked when we could deliver to you. You shocked me to the marrow as you told me to send only ten copies and go ahead to distribute the remaining thousands of copies through our extensive network and make more money from it. What occurred to me immediately was your native intelligence. Only a sagacious and visionary person would have understood that it was better to spread the publication to every part of Nigeria than restricting it to only church members. Let me say thank you again for that huge support at a time we needed it. I do not forget favours, ever!

You have probably forgotten the next thing you did for us. Soon afterwards, I got another invitation from you, which I gladly honoured. As soon as we sat down, you told me you were in trouble with your beautiful and humble wife, and I asked why? You said your wife queried why she was not featured in the Ovation International magazine edition that had you on the cover. You told me you were surprised because she’s too introverted and had never asked for any form of publicity. I noticed that most of the time she was mingling freely with church workers and the congregation. 


She never acted like a Queen or First Lady of the church and this endeared her to me. You informed me the only remedy was for me to do another cover in our next edition for both of you. That was how you became probably the only family to feature back to back on our cover. I returned to London and produced an even better cover.


Our friendship grew in leaps and bounds. Though we did not see frequently, sometimes for years, we regularly phoned each other and bonded like brothers. Anytime you saw some wonderful news about me, you called to congratulate and appreciate me despite your breath-taking schedules. The most superlative of our encounters was in 2010 when you heard of my Presidential dream. You did not fold your arms to watch me from afar. I had just boarded a flight from J F Kennedy Airport in New York when my phone rang and you were on the line. 


“Alagba, where are you?”, you asked in your usual caring voice. I told you I was on a flight from America to London, and you told me to see you as soon as I arrived in Lagos. I was greatly humbled when you said you wished to discuss my presidential bid.


I visited you late one night and spent less than ten minutes, or so, with you. You told me I had no chance of winning the 2011 presidential election but encouraged me to go all the way. You assured me the experience would be very useful and that I would remain very relevant in the affairs of Nigeria, thereafter. Such a man of wisdom you are, Sir. You came in with two carrier bags and you told me they contained your financial contribution.


 Months later, you invited me again to your home and gave me further assistance despite knowing I could not win that election. You propelled me towards my goal and did not use the excuse of failure to discourage me. You earned my respect.

Let me give one more example of your uncommon love for fellow beings. About two years ago, I had to undergo cataract operations in London. The surgery went well and I was recuperating when suddenly, I received a call from you in the dead of the night. “Alagba, I have just heard about your eye problems.”, you said in that calm voice. I replied the operations were very successful and was grateful for your concern.


 You offered to offset the bills and I replied that few friends who heard about my ordeal, like Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Tony Elumelu, Femi Otedola and Tokunbo Afikuyomi had all offered to assist. You still insisted on adding your widow’s mite. You texted repeatedly to ask for an account despite my reluctance. God will never desert you.


I have written all these examples as my personal testimonial to you. In a country where many try to hide behind one finger, I wish to stand tall and tell the world that you are a good man, even if others think or say otherwise. I have read that you wish to abandon Nigeria and migrate to Israel. It will never happen. 



You cannot and should not allow your enemies run you out of town. God has been very kind to you. Just look back and see your journey from way back in Ondo State. What more can God do for any man who has served him loyally and fervently like you have done.
My dear man of God, I align my voice with those who plead that you remain in Nigeria. I have chosen to do so publicly because I believe it is necessary.
You will see me very soon at your door.
All the best, in Jesus’ mighty name…

We all have that spiritual backbone we relie on... I have mine, he is a muslim cleric. I wouldn't have gotten through so many battles without his guidance and prayers. So, I see nothing wrong in panicking when ones spiritual consultant is about to relocate....

Errrmmm Uncle Momodu but you talk say you no get tie tie with am at first... When did he start choking eye into your presidential bid?😏😕

I respect TB Joshua same way I respect other men of God. I was opportunity to see him pass then at Agodo and I noticed he is a humble man. His church has helped improved the productivity of that local area but I would love to see him relocate. I know the headquarters will still function but it won't be like... You know Na. Anyways, what is my concern? Lemme Go and pluck mangoes.

Waooo I started it and finished it. It is worth the read.

Honestly momodu just succeeded in changing my mind about TB JOSHUA. He gave me another perspective to his being. Although I still have a few reservations but I think there's a lot to learn from this. Nice one

Ok bye

sisi eko said...

Lmao😂😂😂

patt ogar said...

Hmmm

sisi eko said...

Many of them are thinking of the commercial benefit of joshua's contribution to the economy. So I quite understand their sentiments. Although momodu didn't want to ponder on that fact as the main reason, he had to preamble so the man won't think otherwise 😀

Speak for yourself!!! A lot of people obviously 'give a damn that's why you see several people writing to him not leave. So watch your tongue and learn to respect your elders..... Especially when they are wealthy enough to take care of your entire generation.

The man, Dele Momodu is not an intelligent human being. See as he bootlicks every individual that fills his wallet. No wonder, Davido calls him his boy.

Well, we've all got our opinions about most issues and Dele has just communicated his.
But if TBJ relocates to Israel because he's been 'persecuted' in Nigeria what happens if he faces same in Israel? Would he also run?
Between persecution comes with doing God's work and Christians have been sufficiently adviced in the Good Book to expect it.

Pheew! I finished it o. I passed by the Synagogue church of all nations for the first time last week and I was like 😮😮. Nice one Mr Dele

Lmaoooooooooooo

He did Sisi. He did.
.
Sometimes,people soo grossly misjudge others than in reality,there is no iota of truth in the lies.
And like he rightly said,Jesus Christ was accused of all sorts,even though He was the Son Of God.

I am almost teary-eyed.
I can't imagine how Linda feels if I feel this way.
I am so sorry if all those lies hurt you Sir.
But then again,remember our Lord Jesus suffered worse. Far worse. They even hung him on the Cross😢

Thank you Sir Dele for doing this. Thank you for standing up for him.And thank you for changing my before-skeptical mind.

May God bless you Pastor Sir!
May God bless you Sir Dele!

Touché, Hmmmm Dele wrote well and also opened my eyes to what i didn't know. TB is a good man

Candid! said...

Read it to the end. If TB Joshua wants to leave Nigeria, isn't it a direct order from God? Is it possible for a man of God to make decisions without the leading of the Holyspirit? So oga Dele, the epistle writer, are u asking ur man of God to disobey the holyspirit and listen to u? Because u are? Nawa! Except u know God didn't send oga Joshua to Isreal, and he's acting on a whim. Na all of una sabi.

If only this epistle can resurrect Buhari and transform him to the kind of President we need.
