The Christian association of Nigeria (CAN) has rejected to the companies and allied matters act (CAMA) signed by the president, referring to it as ungodly.
A statement from CAN reads, “Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) rejects CAMA Completely,”.“The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria rejects outrightly the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020 that was assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari recently.
“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.
“While we are not against the government fighting corruption wherever it may be found, yet we completely reject the idea of bringing the church, which is technically grouped among the NGOs, under control of the government.
“The Church cannot be controlled by the government because of its spiritual responsibilities and obligations.”
The Christian body added: “How can the government sack the trustee of a church which it contributed no dime to establish?
“How can a secular and political minister be the final authority on the affairs and management of another institution which is not political?
“How can a non-Christian head of government ministry be the one to determine the running of the church? It is an invitation to trouble that the government does not have power to manage.”
It advised the government to “face the business of providing infrastructure for the people. Let them focus on better health provision, food, education.
DaIly Times gathered that CAN however urged president Buhari to return law to the house of assembly for amendment.
