There is need to have a leader in any Organization so that the affairs of the establishment would be properly managed.
Some organization faced serious leadership tussle when the founder died and without appointing a successor. This tussle sometimes led to the end of the organization and the legacy of the founder. This could be said to be happening at the Synagogue Church Of All Nation (SCOAN) following the death of the founder and senior Prophet, T. B. Joshua who was reportedly died on June 5, 2021.
According multiple report, the SCOAN have in recent months witnessed leadership tussle following the death of the founder some months ago. Though, the Church denied the reports and said it was focused on giving the late Joshua a befitting burial that he deserved.
He was buried on July 9, 2021.
Ever since the late Prophet was buried, there have been some report of crisis at the Synagogue Church Of All Nation over who to succeed him.
However, last week, a High Court of Nigeria appointed Mrs Evelyn Joshua, the late Prophet's widow as a trustee member of the Church. On Sunday, September 12, 2021, Mrs Joshua was seen in a video where she announced herself as the new leader of her late husband's Church. Though, she stated that T. B. Joshua still remain the General Overseer of the Church.
According to The Nation Newspaper, crisis is now rocking the Church following the emergence of Mrs Evelyn Joshua as the new leader of the Church. The newspaper reported that some members of the Church have rejected her as their new leader.
In this article, we will look at two reasons that were given by the aggrieved members of the Church on why they don't want the wife of their late Leader. Below are some of the reasons as reported by some media outlet.

The paper reported that some members of SCOAN worried that "she was not part of the founding members of the Church."
According to them, “Mrs. Evelyn Joshua is not a Pastor. She was never anointed by Pastor Joshua. She was not part of the founding members of the Church. What is the basis of her emergence as the person now parading herself as the new leader?"
2. Evelyn Joshua allegedly tried to commercialize every activity of the Church:
