A video of the televangelist, Temitope Balogun Joshua, also known as TB Joshua, praying for the wife of the late former President John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills has resurfaced on social media.
The renowned Nigerian preacher who died on Saturday, June 5, 2021, was in Ghana in 2012 for the funeral of the late Ghanaian president who died much earlier on July 24, 2012.
Speaking in an interview on TV3 outside the residence of the late president after praying for his widow and former First Lady, Ernestina Naadu Mills, the leader and founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations called on Ghanaians to unite their words and deeds.
''We should let our words and our deeds be the same. I mean, what we are saying and what we are doing should be the same. We should not say this and do another thing. You have heard the testimonies of the people. If we had confessed these before now, that would have strengthened the courage of our father before his departure,'' he said.
YEN.com.gh gathered that before his demise on July 24, President Atta Mills had developed a close relationship with Prophet TB Joshua, which started when he was Ghana's vice-president.
After Mills ascended to the presidency, his first port of call after his inauguration was TB Joshua's church for a thanksgiving service where he publicly testified to the accuracy of the preacher's prophetic insight.

In a related story, a video of the televangelist, better known as TB Joshua, indicating that it would not be easy for him to celebrate his 58th birthday this year is making the rounds online.
The renowned preacher addressed his church members and viewers throughout the world, highlighting the prevailing circumstances and difficulties many are facing due to COVID-19.
''Viewers all over the world, June 12 is around the corner - as you know I'm a man of people, so the wound of one is the wound of all. As things stand, you may have realised it will not be easy for me to celebrate my birthday under the present circumstances,'' he posted on Twitter.
