Following the huge credibility deficit, Prophet T. B. Joshua recently faced due to his failed prediction that the Coronavirus would vanish March 27 from the earth, the cleric has been slammed for spending four days praying against the pandemic at the top of a mountain.
The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) founder could be seen in a video broadcast from Emmanuel TV’s studios on Sunday barefoot and simply clad in a long garment. It also showed where he slept outdoors amidst a large expanse of rocks and trees for the duration of his serious fasting and praying session.
However it has since drawn a lot of criticism from some Nigerians who questioned theatrics, with few expressing why he had to go with cameramen who filmed him while he prayed.
Since its outbreak in the Wuhan province of China in December last year, the novel virus had been confirmed in around 210 countries or territories as of April 27, 2020, with 3,004,887 people infected worldwide, and 207,254 deaths recorded.
Below are some reactions from Nigerians:

I hope when this pandemic is over, Nigerians will remember that Oyedepo, Adeboye, TB Joshua, Sulaiman, Oyakhilome and other miracle peddlers are simply showmen who couldn't perform when we needed them the most.

After God told TB Joshua that COVID-19 will end on the 27th of March but failed. He has now gone into the bush praying. Whereas in Matthew 6:5-6 God said. do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues & on the street corners to be seen by others pic.twitter.com/MZf1bZUMjJ

TB Joshua is the only pastor that is concerned about his congregation and Nigerians.
Other pastors are chop life geng that only care about offering and their pockets.
TB legit went to the mountain to pray and do photoshoot. The real man of God with a degree in Theatre Art.
