What used to be a bubbly environment has in the past couple of months gradually turned a ghost town.
For those doing business within the vicinity of the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Ikotun, Lagos,the death of its founder, Prophet T.B Joshua has brought untold hardship on them.
This is because many of their businesses died along with the founder of the Church, Prophet T.B Joshua. A visit by celebrityplusonline revealed that many outlets including hotels, eateries, convenient stores and business centers have all closed shop.
This is due to the fact that many of their customers mostly foreigners who thronged the Church while T.B Joshua was alive for Spiritual Tourism no longer come around.
If some of them thought that the development was for a little while and that things would soon normalize after a few months of T.B Joshua”s death, they soon perished the thought when the matter got from bad to worse because of the delay in reopening the church following the controversies over succession which pitched late T.B Joshua’s wife, Evelyn, with some of the junior Pastors of SCOAN.
As it is,many of the hotel owners who hitherto smiled to the bank when the church was in full gear have put up their property for sale.Investigations reveal that many of the Hotel owners took loans from banks and the banks are on their necks over their inability to service the loans following the lull in business.Those not under heavy pressure to repay loans have put up their property for lease instead of outright sale.
Despite the reopening of the Church to normal worship a few months ago ,the situation has failed to improve and the plight of the business owners remaining what it is. This is because traffick has waned drastically at the once boisterous Church.

In contemporary times, a mujaddid is regarded as the preeminent Muslim figure of a century.
The concept of Mujaddid is based on a hadith (a saying of Islamic prophet Muhammad), recorded by Abu Dawood, narrated by Abu Hurairah who mentioned that Muhammad said:
Allah will raise Mujaddid for this community at the end of every 100 years the one who will renovate its religion for it.
Recall that in a grand ceremony attended by distinguished personalities and spiritual leaders, Hon Saheed Audullahi Mosadoluwa, Chairman and CEO of Harmony Gardens and Estates Development LTD, officially commissioned and handed over a state-of-the-art central mosque in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos State, on Friday, January 19th, 2024.

ECOWAS Succumbs To Primate Ayodele’s Prophecies, Lifts Sanctions On Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso
The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele is a living proof that the secrets of God are with his prophets. The holy bible tells us that God does nothing without revealing his plans to his prophets, Primate Ayodele is a confirmation of the scripture. (Amos 3 Vs 7)
In the last three years, the African continent has experienced different successful coups that saw democratically elected governments ousted and it’s fair enough to say Primate Ayodele foretold these situations at different times and on different platforms; Videos, texts and words.
The first among them is the military coup that happened in Mali about four years ago. Primate Ayodele in his prophecies for 2020 revealed that there will be a gang-up against the Mali president.
‘’MALI: There will be a gang up against the Malian president. The country should pray against protests and disorderliness.’’
Prior to the coup that happened in Niger Republic, Primate Ayodele in a video interview in July 2023 warned African leaders to address the issue of coup as he foresees another event that will witness the end of a democratic government. He made this statement 14 days before the coup that ousted President Bazoum’s government.
‘’If African leaders don’t address what will cause a coup, there will be a coup. I am seeing another coup in Africa except it is being addressed properly. If the leaders are not doing the rightful things, there will be a problem in Africa, there will be coup.’’
After the Niger Coup, ECOWAS placed several sanctions on the country including Burkina Faso and Mali. The commission threatened to fight the coupist and even France tried every means possible to ensure the military government is ousted but in the midst of all these, Primate Ayodele called on all parties to tread carefully because God has a hand in the coup.
“I want to tell all African leaders, the US, France, and every interested party that they will not escape God’s judgment if this war happens in Africa.’’
‘’African leaders don’t value themselves. We don’t value ourselves and what we have. Let them leave Niger alone and let the country breathe rather than terrorizing and threatening the peace of the nation. They have gotten it wrong with the order of military action. This will not end the coup in Africa, they can’t see far.’’
Primate Ayodele went as far as warning President Joe Biden of USA against intervening in the Niger coup issue. He advised the president not to involve himself because it will have a negative impact on his government.
‘’If the US invades Niger Republic, it will be a satanic and terrorist move. It means Joe Biden is looking for God’s anger. US involvement is just a means to enslave the people of Niger Republic. The US is passing through a lot of challenges, why do they want to invade Niger when they have their own problems to battle with. It is a means to start a third world war which God is against.’’
Also, Primate Ayodele advised President Macron to withdraw his troops from the country because the people have decided and any more provocation may lead to something disastrous.
The coup in Niger Republic is irreversible, no matter what President Macron and his chariot plan to do to restore the former president, it will not be successful.
“Any attempt by President Macron to attack the Niger Republic will lead to the downfall of France.
“It’s better for President Macron to accept that the people have decided, he should withdraw his troops to ensure peace reigns in the country.”
In another advice to ECOWAS, Primate Ayodele advised the commission to make use of diplomatic moves instead of violence to speak to the coupist nations because the ousted government cannot be reinstated.
‘’Niger is not a war zone. Let us use diplomacy to handle it. Let them give ECOWAS their roadmap and an agreement should be made. They won’t allow the president to come back unless you want to destroy the country. What happened in Niger is God’s wish.’’
After much attempts to try it their own way, ECOWAS has finally succumbed to the diplomatic methods as advised by Primate Ayodele. The commission which sanctioned the coupist countries has lifted the sanctions and opened more doors for dialogue instead of hostility towards Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali.
