TB Joshua Spends £100,000 (N26m) To Send Nigerian Student To Oxford University by Makweembo: 3:31pm On Nov 18, 2012
Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua, well known for his expansive philanthropic endeavours, shocked congregants at his church, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 18th November 2012 when it was revealed he has sponsored a Nigerian student to study a PhD in the University of Oxford to the tune of £100,000, approximately N26 million.

Miss Yinka Oduwole, who introduced herself as one of the youth who was brought up in The SCOAN and worked there extensively, testified how she had gained admission to study a PhD in Engineering Science in Oxford University, UK after a successful Master’s Programme in University College London (UCL). Yinka, who was equally sponsored in her Master’s Degree in Broadband Communication in UCL in which she came out with a distinction, said Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners had paid the sum of £100,000 to enable her to study for a PhD in the prestigious Oxford University.

“My advice to youth all over the world is that they should pray as if everything depends on God and work as if everything depends on them,” Yinka, also a First-Class graduate from the University of Lagos, told the congregation and viewers worldwide on Emmanuel TV, equally counselling the youth to find a job in the church and actively engage in godly activities.

TB Joshua also revealed in the service how footballer Ogenyi Onazi, the SS Lazio starlet who was recently promoted to the Super Eagles of Nigeria and scored on his debut against Venezuela, was brought up in the church and worked there as well before attaining his current sporting success. Joshua revealed how he had sponsored Onazi and his colleague Sani Emmanuel to trial in clubs around the world including Premier League giants Chelsea and Tottenham, before arriving in SS Lazio, where he is currently playing for the senior team. Joshua revealed that close to $1m was spent in this process, to ensure the duo went to the right club to reach the heights of their potential.

According to Joshua, the reward for raising up such young people to become leaders of tomorrow in every field of expertise is immeasurable in monetary or material terms. “What you make happens for others, God makes happen for you. You are raised to raise others,” Joshua exhorted the crowd, counselling them to consider the future of their own children and what they were doing with their lives.

Forbes estimated that Joshua has spent up to $20m in charitable activities alone in the last three years. Thousands of less privileged students are currently studying in universities across Nigeria and around the world courtesy of SCOAN’s scholarship program.

Minion: My King! This christian man is really showing people his good works
Hades: Christain huh! You know that means Christ-like! Where in the Bible did Jesus shout out his miracles. Jesus told his disciples to give all they had to the poor, did he ever tell them to reveal it to the whole word?! angry When you mess, you dont need to tell people that you messed, the mess will tell people
Minion: My mind stands on a different point of view, my King! My eyes are blinded by emotions, I cannot see into logic

Commendable act by TB Joshua... I hereby take back all negative thoughts and insinuations. If I were to ever step inside a church again (however minute the chance might be), it is definitely the SCOAN.

This is not the first time he's doing something like this. He sent some students to study in the UK some years back. This is the kind of gesture we're supposed to be seeing from our supposed men of God. Instead they're busy buying private jets.

Quite commendable! I may not be the best of his fans but I believe if he builds a university tomorrow, his poor members can afford the fees unlike what is obtainable in other so called "Men Of God" owned universities.
