The Senior Pastor of Abuja based Dunamis International Gospel Centre Dr. Paul Enenche has again distanced himself from a comment purportedly from him on late Prophet Temitope Joshua.
Prophet Joshua is the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations. He died on June 5 barely a week to his 58 birthday.
In a two-page statement on July 14 signed by his secretary Sylvester Edoh, Dr. Enenche said he had to a rebuttal again because the statement purportedly from him is increasingly still being circulated by the media.
He said the person who made the statement on TB Joshua was a comedian called Peter Obonyilo also known as Enenche Enenche. The person according to him has since owned up to the statement.
The cleric said despite his earlier rebuttal on July 10 and the fact that the original author of the statement had owned up to it; some mischief-makers have not stopped attributing the statement to him.
While appreciating the concerns of friends and well-wishers over the statement, he urged the public to take note that the statement did not originate from him.
The controversial comment
Enenche Enenche, the comedian had said in the comment about TB Joshua “They told us how ‘evil’ he was, but were silent when he fed the poor, built hospitals and schools, responded to humanitarian needs on our streets… This is Christ-like.
“They told us how ‘evil’ he was, but kept mute on his humility to board the same coastal bus with his team to go for outreaches. This is Christ-like because even Jesus Christ boarded the same boat with his disciples.
“They told us how ‘evil’ he was but kept silent when he brought peace to South Sudan. He was a peacemaker. “Blessed are the Peacemakers…”. This is Chris-like.
“Not until his death did I know his wife and even children because he never projected his family. His life and preachings projected Christ more than anything else.”
