He saidt the Ondo-born Pastor and Televangelist was a philanthropist whose exit will be sorely missed by many.
In his words, “Pastor Joshua was committed to giving and was more often, inexorably imbued with calmness while lifting the downtrodden man as a televangelist, he did not just win souls for Christ, he was passionate about changing lives.
This according to the Governor was demonstrated timelessly, through the deceased alluring service to humanity and compassion by assisting not only his home local government, Akoko North West, but Other adjoining local governments in Akoko land benefitted from his large heart of benevolence.
Governor Akeredolu said, that of significant note too, Pastor Joshua never hesitated to assist in whatever manner the Ondo State Government desired such and to the people of Ondo State, his death is considered a personal loss. He was a pride to the Sunshine State.
