As reactions continue to trail the controversial Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020 (CAMA), the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to suspend its implementation.

The call was made on Tuesday, September 1, by CAN'S president, Rev. Olasupo Ayokunle.

According to Channels TV, CAN, in its letter to Buhari said it is yet to view a full copy of the Act.

“We consider the Act, as indeed, a complex of statecraft compendium, laden with issues that are grossly inimical to national interest, security (- peace and stability), and overall wellbeing of the Nigerian-state,” the statement said.

“Mr. President . . . we are of the opinion that you should kindly issue the appropriate directives to suspend the implementation of CAMA 2020 and affirm a thorough reappraisal of the legislation that is in correlation with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended), other extant legal and policy frameworks, the national economy, national security, national interest and the wellbeing of the Nigerian-state,” the CAN statement read.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the federal government finally broke its silence following bones of contention raised recently by the controversial Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020 (CAMA).

Legit.ng recalls that the law, since being introduced by the government, has been generating a ripple of controversies with top Nigerian clergies including Pastor David Oyedepo and Primate Elijah Ayodele raising eyebrows.

On Tuesday, September 1, the federal government said the law was not introduced to oppress the churches and mosques in Nigeria as contrarily perceived.

In a related development, the founder of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Oke-Afa, Ejigbo Lagos, Primate Elijah Ayodele, also spoke against the new CAMA that seeks to appoint trustees over religious organisations.

In his interview with Legit TV, the clergyman said that nobody can appoint anybody over the church he invested his blood, sweat, and money on.

Primate Ayodele said that even if it is possible with the so-called other rich churches, it cannot happen with his.
