We have witnessed and read changes in some organisation after the death of the Chief Executive Officer or the General Overseer in Nigeria and in other parts of the world. The essence of a new leader is to ensure the legacy of the late founder is sustained and the organisation continue. Sometimes, someone from the family of the founder of the organisation is appointed to oversee the affairs of the oragnisation and in some cases, someone outside the family of the family of the late founder is appointed, depending on the constitution that govern the organisation.

Like the topic suggest, in this article, we will look at three Nigerian women who successfully became General Overseers of their late husband's churches after the demise of their husbands.

Months after the death and burial of late Prophet T. B. Joshua, it was reported that a Federal High Court appointed Mrs Joshua as a member of Trustee of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations. Days after the High Court appointment, the Church released a statement announcing Mrs Evelyn Joshua as a new leader of the Church.

According to PUNCH Newspaper, Synagogue Church Of All Nations said through their official social media page that "it is now God’s appointed time, to the glory of God, for the SCOAN to soldier on with the divine assignment under the guidance of God and the human leadership of Mrs Evelyn Joshua."
