The Onakankafo said that Joshua was very humble, gentle and generous to a fault.

“His large – heart knows no tribe, colour, ethnic, language or religion. He was simply a winner of souls which  spread beyond the shores of Nigeria.

” ‘Egbon’ lived a of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that will  live  for generations yet unborn.

“Joshua  opened a new vista in religious tourism and Nigeria earned a lot in terms of foreign exchange from his accommodating spirit. his death, there   been an eclipse in God’s vineyard,” he said. (NAN)
