The statement stated that some delegates from the church in Nigeria would attend the memorial service in South Africa.

The statement quoted T.B. Joshua as saying "the deceased, mostly South Africans, were on an appointment with God when they met their death and therefore they did not die in vain".

Joshua recalled that the coroner had passed its verdict calling for the prosecution of the contractors that handled the building of the collapsed structure.

He, however, urged government to focus more on what led to the tragedy adding that the building collapsed questioned the security consciousness of the government.
