During the rise of Pastor Joshua in later 90s and consequently the emergence of SCOAN, a strong need for building the station developed as the video clips of Joshua’s alleged miracles were spreading and attracting attention of many. In addition to that, the Pastor started to feature in regular programs on local Nigerian TV displaying his miracles to a wide range of audience. However, he was then hit by Nigeria’s National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) which was instructed by President Olusegun Obasanjo to turn off any programming that showed miracles. As a result most of the miraculous stuff was taken off in year 2004. This was a major factor that contributed to the establishment of Emmanuel TV founded in March 2006.
Emmanuel TV as it is linked with The Synagogue, Church of All Nations presents mostly the programming produced from the Church. As a ministry station, Emmanuel has made its mark as a station free from airing fundraising campaigns and doesn’t uses its voice for asking for financial funding from the audiences.
