Of a truth, leading prophetic voice in this dispensation and senior pastor of Abuja-based Champions Royal Assembly, Bro. Joshua Iginla has remained an instrument in the hands of God to heal the broken hearted and transform lives globally.
As the word of God has the ability to impact not only one’s spirit and mind but also one’s physical body, Bro. Iginla has always demonstrated how the power of God heals in significant ways. The servant of God, in his ministering element, practically inserts the word into people and it goes right into the mind and impacts every fibre of the body systems. At the end of the day, the mission gives people the opportunity to share testimonies.
At Champions Royal Assembly, people are witnesses to miracles God performs and has been performing through this humble clergy since its inception. The fast-spreading ministry, headquartered in an 80,000 seater capacity auditorium in Abuja,Nigeria has several branches across the world, while Iginla has ignited many dimensions of Christianity characterized by clear cut charity, signs, wonders and healing miracles, around the globe.
According to Bro. Iginla: “Our mandate is to wipe out tears, restore people to their destinies by the revelation of the word, manifestation of power and reality of the Holy Spirit, and put an end to affliction and to produce people of fire throughout the globe. The Bible is quite clear about the need for practical support for the needy and it is an unambiguous admonition of God to provide food, shelter and clothing for the sick, widows, children, the prisoners, the elderly and all those who are suffering,” stated the Oracle of God in a chat with newsmen.
Born in May 21st, 1969, Bro. Iginla is not just blessed with the gift of firebrand preaching, and powers of Deliverance, healing and prophecy, his mega outreaches also serve as conduit through which vital services are provided to local communities. On the side,Iginla writes books, many that inspire god-like lifestyle and victory in all ramifications.
Meanwhile, looking at pastors of large congregations today, only a select few of them do tend to contribute hugely to a wide range of charities and community outreach efforts. Among this very few is Bro. Joshua Iginla. From the early Christianity to the modern age, genuine Christians have carried with them a beneficial concept of charity that has had, and continues to have, a substantial impact on humanity. Iginla is a perfect example of this tradition of old. It is always a moment of joy and fulfillment for members of his Champion Royal Assembly and even strangers, the less privileged including widows, widowers and vulnerable children when he blesses them during his regular charity scheme. Arguably, he is a rare breed who demonstrated God’s love with practical demonstration.
In his usual manner, during his birthdays, the man of God used the opportunity of his birthday which falls in May, each year to further reach out to the less-endowed in the society.
The revered man of God, who has penchant for touching the lives of the needy, has reeled out gifts and cash running into billions. Bro. Iginla doles out money, houses and scholarships to the aged, helpless widows, the poor and orphans.
Most of the beneficiaries who belong to Muslim and Christian faith had tears in their eyes as they were touched by God through him. They, however, could not stop praying for Bro. Joshua Iginla. The televangelist revealed that being a Muslim did not mean they were evil and could not be assisted, hence, the reason he never discriminate in his philanthropic gestures.
Truth be told, as another May 21st roll by, it is worthy of note to admit that Iginla is a record breaker and unique person in many sense. Here are some unexpected facts about Joshua Iginla
Brother Joshua has presented a number of cars to celebrities and actors. For the first time it happened in 2015, he gave out 22 cars and the second time he presented 32 cars as a gesture of largesse;
Iginla gives Muslim acid victim, Jamila Yusuf, 10m , sponsors her surgery in 2016
He doles out over N23 million to 115 widows during his birthday in 2017
Also in Johannesburg, South Africa he gave several cars and millions to widwos and less privileged.
He awards Scholarship To A Girl Child, Gives Her A Cash Gift
He built a record-breaking world-class 80,000 seats auditorium in Abuja withing 13 months mad currently building same capacity in South Africa
Pastor Joshua Iginla donated N1 million Naira for the treatment of Nollywood star Elder Maya
He presented one more car to famous actor Solomon Akiyesi, and he also added N300, 000 to cover any cost.
The pastor has two television stations known as Champions Television that is broadcasted globally
In 2019, he acquired a multi-billion naira private jet for the propagation of the ministry.
Builds 80,000 seater auditorium in Abuja withing 13 months and is embarking on another cathedral in South Africa.
As a prophet, he predicted many political and social events, among them:
On March 9, 2014, the pastor predicted that Obasanjo would quit PDP
He accurately predicted about Buhari health issues.
The next prediction was about Boko Haram attacks in Cameroon
He predicted future World cup 2014 winner
After that, there was a prediction about the upcoming impeachment of Adamawa’s State governor..
The pastor predicted bomb attack at INEC office and accidents with Boko Haram female bombers
There were also predictions about Ebola threat, and fire outbreaks in Lagos (2015).
Arguably one of the richest prophets globally with aquisation of private jets, mega parishes across the world and ultra modern buildings home and abroad, yet, he remains one of the most humble clergy who has chosen his resources to impact the less privileged and the needy. He has finally divorced his wife over infidelity and has moved on permanently with his new wife prophetess Stella whom we learnt has been a source of peace and happiness to him.

Alaafin Shuns Ooni-Backed Group Over Alleged Anti-Buhari Posture
The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, on Friday, at the last minute, allegedly cancelled an appointment he gave to a Yoruba group, Ooni’s Caucus, on the alleged complaint that members of the group are “notorious critics” of the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
The Ooni’s Caucus, which was inaugurated at the palace of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on July 20, 2021, is made of many influential Yoruba persons and is being coordinated by a former Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria, Mr Akin Osuntokun.
PUNCH learnt that Osuntokun led about 14 members of the group to Alaafin’s palace for the alleged 11am appointment on Friday, but after waiting for about two and a half hours, the influential monarch sent words to them that he would not be seeing them.
According to a source, who spoke to PUNCH on condition of anonymity, some of the group’s members who went to Alaafin’s palace with Osuntokun were a monarch, the Olugbon of Orile-Igbon, Oba Francis Alao; a former presidential spokesman, Dr Doyin Okupe; a former commissioner in Osun State, Muyiwa Ige; a former Minister of Defence, Mrs Dupe Adelaja; a retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, Oye Oyewumi, Sola Lawal, among others.
A former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, is also said to be a member of Ooni’s Caucus, but he was not on the delegation to Alaafin’s palace on Friday.
The source, who is a member of the group, claimed that the group had through the Olugbon secured an appointment with Alaafin since Monday, and the same appointment was confirmed on Thursday, only for them to get to the palace and the Alaafin refused to see them on the claim that they were anti-Buhari and were also loyalists of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The source explained that the main purpose of the meeting was for the newly-inaugurated group to get Alaafin’s blessings and to possibly discuss the issue of the embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, alias Sunday Igboho, who is currently being held and tried in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
The source said, “The Olugbon, a member of the caucus, was the one who booked the appointment, but he said the Alaafin said he didn’t want to see us because we’re notorious critics of the Buhari government.
“He (Alaafin) confirmed the appointment yesterday (Thursday). But when we got there today, he kept us waiting; after a while, he asked to see the Olugbon. He (Alaafin) didn’t come to see us; we were told he said he wouldn’t see us because we are notorious critics of Buhari’s government and that some of us are close to Obasanjo, who is also critical of the government.
“We were made to wait for about two and a half hours; he gave us an appointment for 11am; we got there at 11am and at about 1.30pm, that was when it was obvious to us that he wasn’t coming (to see us). But he initially asked to see the Olugbon, who went to see him for about an hour. When the Olugbon eventually came back, he said Alaafin would not see us, saying we are a group that is critical of the Buhari government and some of us are loyalists of Obasanjo.”
On whether the group’s mission to Alaafin’s palace was to discuss Sunday Igboho’s matter, the source said, “Of course, the issue (of Igboho) would come up but that was not the purpose of the visit. The issue of Igboho concerns all the Yoruba people but that was not our reason for going to him.”
On whether the group would try and book another appointment, the source said, “I don’t know; we were all surprised that a Yoruba oba can refuse to see his children on account of not wanting to be on the bad side of Buhari’s government. I would have thought that an oba is supposed to take everybody as his children, whether they are supporters of Buhari the All progressives Congress or the Peoples Democratic Party or whatever party.”
But when contacted by PUNCH, the Media Director to the Alaafin, Bode Durojaye, said the reason his principal did not see the group was because they did not have any prior appointment with him.
Durojaye said the Alaafin would be willing to entertain the group if they booked an appointment.
He said, “Those who came are men of honour and kabiyesi did not say he did not want to see them. He did not say he would not see them because they are critical of President Buhari or they are former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s men. Obasanjo himself is a friend of Kabiyesi, so you can see that what you were told was not what happened.
“Kabiyesi said he could not see them because they did not give him prior notice that they were coming. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to see them again. They can notify him and he will give them an appointment. You cannot just come and say you want to see him, there are protocols to follow and due process is always adhered to at Alaafin’s Palace.
“There was no rancour, no ill-feeling even when they were going; I was there and I saw them off to their vehicles. If anybody told you that kabiyesi said he didn’t want to see them because they are critical of government or they are Obasanjo’s men, that is a lie.”
NMA Reacts As Bandits Break Into, Pick Nurse At Zamfara General Hospital
Suspected bandits invaded General Hospital, Dansadau, Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State on Friday, resulting in the abduction of a nurse and caregiver.
Residents said that immediately the men stormed the medical facility, the armed men headed to the outpatient ward in search of a doctor or nurse.
“When they couldn’t find anybody there, they started going from one ward to another. A nurse and a caregiver were abducted. They then moved to staff quarters looking for doctors and nurses but could not find any.”
“The armed criminals had earlier attempted to attack Maigoge, a community located six kilometres north of Dansadau town.
“But when they laid siege to the community, the vigilantes otherwise known as Yan Sakai firmly defended the village. The vigilante killed some of the bandits and injured several others.
“They then invaded the hospital to kidnap nurse and doctors that will treat their injured brothers in the forest.”
Maigoge is one of the few communities in Dansadau Emirate known to be firmly defending themselves against bandits.
“The staff of the facility are not carrying out night duties now. They only attend to patients at day time. They then move inside the town to spend night usually at undisclosed locations,” he added.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association in Zamfara state, Dr Mannir Bature, who confirmed the attack said the association is worried by the unfortunate incident.
He said they would hold an emergency state officers council meeting on Saturday.
