Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari was recently asked by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) to rescind his assent to the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020 (CAMA 2020).
The group advised the president to send the legislation back to the National Assembly to address its fundamental flaws, including removal of what it termed "repressive provisions of the Act".
