Diezani Reportedly Set to Visit TB Joshua’s Synagogue for Healing



Diezani looking frail

According to International Business Times, Nigeria’s embattled former petroleum minister Diezani Alison-Madueke, who has breast cancer, is set to return to Nigeria to visit TB Joshua‘s Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) to seek healing.

The report further states, Joshua and his worshippers have claimed the preacher performs miracles and is able to heal people. According to his official biography, Joshua has healed people affected by diseases such as HIV and AIDS. Such allegations have sparked controversy both in Nigeria and abroad.

      Can they stop with such foolish sensationalism about this woman’s health. If she’s truly battling cancer, she should go handle such deadly disease privately not turn it into this. Many people are dying from it. And if she’s doing chemo, she should focus on that.
      This will not stop from prosecuting if guilty. The more she’s doing this makes her more guilty.

    For her to make such a decision, this woman must have been told she’s terminally ill.

    Ha! We have churches here in London that can pray for healing.TB Joshua is not God perhaps he can fly to london to perform the miracle so there is no need to go Nigeria. Please the UK government should fly TB Joshua down here.we don’t want a case of you becoming too ill and not be able to fly back for adequate treatment. your very important to us Mrs.M. we need you alive and very well in London not in nij .Lol quick recovery I pray

    I honestly do not want to join the band wagon in criticizing this woman cos I feel deep within me dt she gave her best possible for this country as a minister. We all are so quick to judge without investigating. I av been following her story and I av not seen any tangible evidence to nail her. The said money they found in her house in london was not even up to the money the likes of Davido carry around. So until they come up with something concrete this woman still is my role model. Nigerians will begin to appreaciate her when they compare her tenure with our present Minister of petroleum, the president. See how much fuel is now and our minister has not done anything about it, instead he travelled out. We really do not value what we have until we loose it. I’m honestly praying for Madam Deziani’s full recovery and I know she will beat this CANCER in Jesus name, amen.

    Yess o, my dear go to TB Joshua, you have nothing to lose. I pray God heals her through T.B. Joshua. The poor lady, Nigeria will accuse any politician that go out of their way to do the best for them as stealing, while the dictator, the freak shows and the ones they fear, they will let pass. You did your best my dear with what was given to you, the haters and jealous ones will send their toadies to ruin your good name and reputation, but let God only be the judge.

    Senior Prophet T.B. Joshua, this is your defining moment, show the world that God is indeed working through you and your church, justify this lady as well as heal her, Oga TBJ, oya the ball in your court.

    Africans continue to wallow in ignorance. TB Joshua has no power to heal anyone from sickness. Ghana’s former president, Mills, went to TBJ for healing and where’s he now? Dead. Instead of praying to God and getting some help from healthcare experts, you’re embarking on a journey to mortal man who parades himself as ‘prophet’. Smh

    November 25, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    What a pity if this is true. That would be out of the frying pan into the fire.

    I cannot forget how this man first came out years ago, his vastly inadequate answers to very basic questions which are at the core of Christianity. I remember also his inability, in an Ovation magazine interview at the time, to state when he became a born-again Christian, he was being evasive and then said he was born born-again: this is IMPOSSIBLE; he was asked where he gave his life to Christ, no answer, he was asked in which church he gave his life to Christ, no answer, he was asked under which pastor he grew as a believer, he could not name one pastor who knew him at the time of his salvation or as a young believer, etc. How is this possible?

    I also remember reading back then, the ‘testimony’ of a former Minister, Alex Akinyele, in a publication, where he was ‘testifying’ that tb joshua healed him of something, I don’t remember what but I do remember that he said he saw (in a dream) an angel who was very short like a pygmy/dwarf come to him and touch him, and I don’t remember what else, and that that was how he got healed. And I remember thinking to myself, that NOWHERE in the Bible, is any angel of GOD described as being dwarf or pygmy size.

    I remember later reading the angry confession of two men in another publication, again not long when he first came into public knowledge, their angry tirade saying that the three of them had been in the occult business together, but that Fatai Balogun (I think that is what they said his real name is) disappeared at a period and they couldn’t find him anywhere, even at his family home, the next thing was that they heard all the tb joshua news and they went to meet their old friend and colleague to let them in so they could all three work together as before and he flatly refused. They named the goddess and spirits and river, etc, they had investigated and discovered he had gone to receive ‘power’ from, more ‘powerful’ than those they had been involved with together (which they also named). They weren’t being noble in their exposure of him and they didn’t claim to be. They made their stance quite plain: they were just extremely angry that he had sidelined them, had unilaterally broken up their partnership and was not allowing them to profit together with him as they all had been doing together and since he wouldn’t let them in, they were exposing him.

    Some years later, one of his former and closest disciples, made very damning revelations in the most detailed and extensive interview, and he did this in multi-page spreads in newspapers, and in an about 16 hour long video, and also in a book published by the pastor whose church he ran to for shelter and deliverance. I remember at the time a website was even set up (it was called or, something like that), not only that former disciple but others revealed all kinds of things, and he said, they said they were taking the pains to have their testimonies recorded in as many ways as possible so that if anything happened to them, even if they died, their testimonies would be out there still.

    He accused tb joshua of having made attempts on his life both spiritually and by sending an assassin to the new church where he took refuge, that the man answered altar call and insisted on being attended to by him and then asked to speak with him privately but that he caught a glimpse of the butt of his gun and didn’t oblige and the man left. There are so many stories and details of so man things in that expose, so detailed. It was so long but so detailed and so consistent, like when someone is remembering things they have lived and it is just pouring out, not when someone is fabricating something and it is vague and inconsistent and contradictory.

    They said so many things, occultism, sex, brainwashing, hypnotism, blackmail, series of strange deaths (often sudden), corporal punishment, so many things.

    The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria at that time also clearly denounced him as being of the occult. He had tried to join but they investigated him and denied him membership, then he tried to destroy it or at least cause confusion in it. As for those who blindly say PFN were jealous of him that’s why they didn’t give him membership, I don’t understand. PFN didn’t deny Benson Idahosa membership, they didn’t deny Pastor Adeboye membership, and other men of God with incredibly successful ministries, where dead have been raised, incurable diseases cured, but for some reason, they were ‘jealous’ and so didn’t give tb joshua membership.

    I just googled now and saw that PFN leaders mentioned that tb joshua said he was born-again from his mother’s womb and that that is not possible. I didn’t even know they also said that; I was a baby Christian at the time (and still growing and learning every day) but I strongly remember that Ovation magazine cover interview and my conclusion from all the questions and his replies that tb joshua is not a man of God.

    You cannot be born born-again from the womb of your mother; nothing in Scripture supports that, it completely contradicts what JESUS says.

    You cannot become born-again and not have one church, one pastor where you either answered altar call or where you grew as a young Christian. Even Paul the Apostle, after his personal and dramatic encounter on the road to Damascus with JESUS, still had to have Ananias come and minister to him immediately after when he got to town.

    I, personally, gave my life to Christ in the house, no one preached to me, I just got tired of running, and I resisted/struggled/wrestled with God for about five hours (singing, in prayer, choruses I didn’t even know I knew/remembered, one after the other after the other) when HE came calling, and then I gave in. That was a Monday morning. Wednesday (the next/earliest day there would be church services) I found in church and I answered an altar call (not to give my life to CHRIST because I KNEW that I KNEW that I KNEW I had done that in the house, and my best friend at the time was present) but to join a prayer and discipleship class (and I gave my testimony there and the pastor of that class knew me as well as the pastor of the Bible school I joined in the same church, also almost immediately).

    Before giving my life to Christ, I had not stepped inside of a church anywhere for 8 years, not for Christmas, Easter, weddings, new year, whatever. It is just not possible, it is just not Scriptural, that someone is born-again and no one, no congregation, can testify to knowing you at that time. tb joshua could not, in that Ovation magazine interview, and subsequent ones at the time, give a date, a year even, when he became born-again, he either evaded it with vague answers that said nothing or said he came from his mother’s womb born-again. No pastor, preacher, no evangelist, no church he could name.

    JESUS showed in the temple at 12 years old amongst the teachers and elders, and then before beginning HIS ministry, HE submitted HIMSELF to be baptized by HIS cousin, HIS Own forerunner, John the Baptist, even when John refused saying he, John, rather needed to be baptised by JESUS, JESUS insisted, saying”Suffer it to be so, that I may fulfill all righteousness.” and HE was baptised like everyone else.

    ‘Wonders’, ‘signs’, ‘miracles’ are not proofs that someone is genuinely of GOD. Acts of charity are not proofs that someone is genuinely of GOD.

    “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” 2 Corinthians 11: 13 – 15

    Let each one “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2: 12

      This line above struck me. The same also goes for what Nigerians refer to as “BLESSINGS”. Material blessings / Prosperity teaching, which has taken over the church, is not a proof either. Apostle Paul in the Bible was not a physically wealthy man but he was spiritually rich. My naija people don’t want to hear that one oh, it is big car, big house, private jet etc etc

      @truth u have indeed observed tb joshua. One thing i observed when he first came out in the 90’s was that he could not hardly finish pronouncing the name of Jesus. He woud say je-jez over and over. I found it quite weird apart from that something wasn’t adding up about the man and his way of preaching.

    Life is very temporal…. hopefully our current crop of politicians will learn from this. All the money people steal will go no where with anyone.
    Also I don’t understand why they have to inform the public of every little thing she is doing / planning to do, she should face her business quietly, we do not need to be informed.

    Going for healing at TB Joshua.. hmmmmmm.. God says do not judge .. i’m not judging but i’ll like to advise her or any of her family relation that might see this.. Please to the left, dont go and add pepper and sand sand to your condition .. Mark 16: 17 – 18, Isiah 53:4.. Madam give your life to Christ, Matt 6: 33 renew your mind and increase your faith .. Believe that Jesus is lord.. You can always go to a good bible church to help increase your faith and meditate with Mark 16:17-18 , isaiah 53:4, and you will be healed.. It is not TB Joshua ‘s faith or whatever abrakadabra they do there that will heal you.. but tour FAITH!!!.. Don’t go to places where they will televise your situation and be doing abrakadabra oh!.. A word IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE

    And if he truly is a man of God why can’t he fly out to London and do what needs to be done. that was an eye opener and wouldn’t be surprised.

    T.B. Joshua is not a healer but he knows the hearler, Jesus Christ. Somebody quoted Mark 16:17 as if he is making use of it. I had a woman’s testimony who came from Akwa Ibom at The SCOAN who happened to be a senior worker with the Redeem Christian Church of God, She had kidney problem. But because of the envious and hateful teaching against the Synagogue Church Of All Nations; she couldn’t come at the begining untill all medics failed her then she had no option but to visite and low and behold she got healed. Today nobody can give her wrong teachings against the SCOAN. God has blessed His prophet, T.B. Joshua and there’s nothing any man can do about it (tb joshua is a toll in the hands of the Holy Spirit); everybody; as a pastor want to be in the realm the man of God, prophet T.B. Joshua is under but because of their hatred for their fellow man they couldn’t. Anybody can be pastor, preacher, christian, anybody can say be “healed in Jesus’s name” but not everyone can bring Jesus on the scene. God bless you all

      Somebody quoted Mark 16:17 as if he is making use of it. I … ”
      what exactly did you mean .. as if he is making use of it who is the “he”?. May be you should read carefully b4 replying… i m pretty sure what i meant was , just incase you did not understand Mark 16:17 talks about after you have given your life to Christ, and follow GOD’s principles.. you can cast out demons etc.. You dont have to wait or go to a deliverance ministry to get healed …. You can bring (The holyspirit) to the scene, if only you know who you are in Christ Jesus.. Jesus has left the earth.. He sent the holyspirit to do the Job… So bringing Jesus on the scene is to wait till his second coming… and trying to use oneexample miracle is not even enough … i have had family members that have been there and friends and alot of folks and they tell them to bring all sorts of things in addition to things i can’t mention .. all this bla bla you’re writing redeem woman that people weree envious of her ….she left, who told you and her that GOD is not in redeemED, they teach you what you need to know about faith and who you are in Christ, and how you can provoke GOD to bless you (including healing i.e Matt 6:33) i’m not even a member but i’ve been there quite a number of times.. Please read your bible well and know what or how false prophets behave… ….. SHE left redeemed doesnt mean she wouldn’t have been healed there.. but she probably didnt believe that her faith could carry. or was too impatience .. and she ran to abrakadabra, where she’s be healed and then story will surface few yrs after.. … i PRAY WE SHINE OUR EYES(SIGHT) AND MINDS..
      You think Pastors saying you are healed is enough… You have to have faith TO CONNECT to their(pastor/s) faith combines with yours and you get healed.. or have you forgotten / When two or three agree in my name Matt 18:19… THE HOLYSPIRIT HEALS AND NOT TB JOSHUA!!..Let no amphibian spirit operating folk/s in mufti decieve you.. Please! ibeg you Ignorance is too expensive , dont fall or be a victim.

    Admin, why took down mine comment, was it because I didn’t speak evil against prophet T.B. Joshua? TBJ is a toll in the hands of the Holy Spirit and nothing anyman can do about that. Anybody can be pastor, bishop, preacher. Any person can say “be healed in the name of Jesus but not everybody can bring Jesus on the scene.

  30. tunde

    November 26, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    TBJ needs no one to prove his anointing. By their fruits, we shall know them! Show me any man of God doing greater works than TBJ today. Or is his God greater than theirs? We have seen many of these critics come back to thechurch to swallow their vomits. TBJ is not the healer, he only knows Him and introduces you to Him. That is Joshua’s usual refrain. Tell me from the Bible the position of alter call to be born again and those of the prophets of old. Indeed, we shall know the truth and it shall set us free!

  31. prince

    November 26, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    Mind what you say about men of God. I don’t go to TB Joshua church but I’m a Christian and I respect the anointing upon their lives not them as a person but that office that they occupy.

    Meanwhile, Miracles are real and I do believe in miracles and just because some of you don’t believe in it does not change anything. She can be heal

    All these controversial so called men of God. I know a relative who went to T.B Joshua for healing. After the ‘so called healing’ he was offered money to lie to the public that he was healed. He rejected it.

    There is something sinister about that man and I dont believe Diezani would go see him. This sounds like a mischievous story. His ways aint pure @ all.

    If the God of Abraham, the God of ISAAC, the God of Moses, the GOD of ELijah…the same yesterday today and forever more is willing to heal Dezieni Madueke then she shall be healed. If it’s true that she has requested to flown to Nigeria at TB JOSHUA’s Synagogue for healing and she has faith in Jesus then her faith will make her whole and she will be healed.
    Let me quickly say this : it’s not TB Joshua that heals, it’s the blood of Jesus that heals through the love of Christ in the heart of his servant. My prayer is for God to demonstrate is power in the live of Dezieni so the world will know there is a God in Isreal. Thank you

    November 29, 2015 at 6:29 pm

    I would like to meet her one on one. She’s not my role model and she would never be, but I believe she’s a great woman. Most of the positions she held, you’ll find out that she’s the first woman to get there. Did she got there by magic?? She must be intelligent. But she wouldn’t be a role model to Nigerian women bcos she misused her opportunities. I wish her a speedy recovery and whenever proven guilty, she should please return our money.
