According to Tagbo, the initiative is to honour the legacy of the late Joshua and support the less privileged in the society.

She recalled his humanitarian services and its impact both within and outside Nigeria, especially during natural disasters and conflicts.

‘Emmanuel TV Partners Abuja made a vow to continue spreading the love and teachings of Jesus Christ, as exemplified by TB Joshua.

‘Our outreach today is a testament to the selfless and generous spirit of our late Prophet. We aim to continue his legacy of love, faith, and support for the less privileged,’ she said.

She sa

Tagbo said these would support the elderly, widows, and other vulnerable members in the community, especially with the economic challenges bedevilling the nation.

Tagbo said that the group would also visit the Gifted and Talented Orphanage in Trademore and the FCT School of the Blind in Jabi to support the vulnerable groups as part of the evangelical outreach.

She revealed that similar gestures would also be replicated by Emmanuel TV partners all over the world, where food items and livelihood support would be distributed to support the less privileged.

Eno Ekanem, one of the partners, said that the outreach was to show love and give back to the community to show God’s blessing.

‘Our goal is to reach out to those who can not provide for themselves, especially the elderly and the downtrodden,’ h

Similarly, Nneka Mba, another member, commended the substantial nature of the donations in spite of the current economic situation.

‘Considering the current economic situation, we have managed to gather significant quantities of rice, beans, noodles, and other essentials.

‘Our contributions are valued between N15 million to N16 million,’ she said.

Japhet Akawu, traditional ruler of Tasha Village Jiwa Chiefdom, expressed appreciation for the gesture.

‘Today’s generosity from Emmanuel TV Partners signifies a turning point for our community. This act of kindness brings hope and is a blessing for us all,’ he remarked.
