General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has reacted to the Companies and Allied Matters Act, CAMA 2020, recently signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

The RCCG head joined the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in their position, rejected the bill too.

 

This was made known by RCCG’s Head of Media and Public Relations, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi who explained that Adeboye’s opinion on the issue is not always different from whatever the umbrella bodies of Christians decide.


The CAMA 2020 has ignited reactions from several religious stakeholders and non-governmental human rights organisations, who are opposed to its provisions.

 

Section 839 which empowers the Commission to suspend trustees of an association and appoint interim managers to manage the affairs of the association was largely rejected by religious bodies and NGOs.

The Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN), last week described CAMA, as “Ungodly” & “Satanic”.


CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, maintained that by implications, Buhari has repealed the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 1990.

 

“The law, to say the least, is unacceptable, ungodly, reprehensible and an ill-wind that blows no one any good. It is a time bomb waiting to explode.” They added.

CAN also recalled that during the First Term of the President, there was a Public Hearing conducted by the National Assembly on the Non-Governmental Organisations Bill tagged: ‘Bill for an Act To Provide For The Establishment Of The Non-Governmental Organizations, NGOs, Regulatory Commission For The Supervision, Co-ordination And Monitoring of Non Governmental Organizations’ which CAN attended by and many NGOs.


Adding that, “At the Public Hearing, the Bill that sought to bring the religious organizations and NGOs under the control and influence of the government was totally rejected because it would snuff life out of the church and rank the church as a secular institution under secular control. “We thought it was all over until we heard of the CAMA that was assented to by the President, making the rejected bill a law.

 

It called on President Muhammadu Buhari to halt the implementation of “the obnoxious and ungodly law until the religious institutions are exempted from it.


“The church cannot be controlled by the government because of its spiritual responsibilities and obligations.” They added.
