You Tube has suspended Pastor T.B. Joshua’s Emmanuel TV channel on its platform, over hate speech.

Pastor Joshua made this known Thursday via the Facebook page of his ministry and called the decision hasty.

“We have had a long and fruitful relationship with YouTube and believe this decision was made in haste”, he wrote on Thursday.

He also said he and his church are making efforts to appeal the decision and get the channel restored.

“Emmanuel TV’s mission is to share the love of God with everyone – irrespective of race or religion – and we strongly oppose all forms of hate speech!”, he said.

The founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, is now mobilising his followers to join the appeal, by posting comments on all the social media platforms.

“Good Christians are good citizens.

P.M.NEWS found that while Emmanuel TV has disappeared from You Tube, past broadcasts shared by Joshua’s followers have not been blocked.

Watch one of the sermons:


  1. It’s rather unfortunate that YouTube as a responsible organization can take such a drastic measure against an organization that has always been preaching love and unity without making efforts to contact the SCOAN leadership about the alleged infringement. Such issues are better resolved where a first time offender is involved without using the big stick that should always be reserved for repeated offenders. In this particular case, the alleged offense has not even been established since the SCOAN was not contacted to defend itself.
    Nonetheless, I will use this opportunity to appeal to the YouTube management to reconsider its stance on this issue and restore SCOAN to its usual platform.
