The Christian Association of Nigeria has sued the Nigerian government for implementing the Companies and Allied Matters Act, CAMA 2020.
According to Joseph Daramola, the general secretary of the Association, the Christian group sued the Nigerian government over some satanic section and ungodly law in CAMA 2020.
Daramola noted that CAN resolved to go to court after all attempts to convince the federal government why it should not interfere with the Church’s management in the country failed.
He noted that the controversial law’s satanic Section is Section 839 (1) and (2), which empowers the Commission to suspend trustees of an association.
CAN Drags FG To Court
You will recall that the Companies and Allied Matters Act that President Muhammadu Buhari allows regulating religious bodies and charity organisations by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).
The CAMA law was signed into law by President Buhari on August 7, 2020.
Everyevery.ng reported that the Christian Association of Nigeria had written a letter to President Buhari, noting that the CAMA law is laden with grossly inimical issues to the national interest and overall wellbeing of the Nigerian-state.
CAN President, Dr Samson Ayokunle, said the act either did not receive input from the respective various interest groups or failed to accommodate Nigerians’ views and varying interests.
Ayokunle urged President Buhari to affirm a thorough reappraisal of the legislation that is in correlation with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended).
Meanwhile, the Christian body urged President Buhari to issue the appropriate directives with suspending the implementation of CAMA 2020.
