The Christian Association of Nigeria has rejected the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020, saying it would snuff life out of the church and rank the church as a secular institution under secular control.
The report says President Muhammadu Buhari, had on August 7 signed into law, the Companies and Allied Matters Bill, 2020.
The bill which has been passed by the National Assembly replaced the 1990 CAMA.
The Christian body described as unacceptable, section 839 (1) and (2) of the law which empowers the Supervising Minister to suspend trustees of an association (in this case, the church) and appoint the interim managers to manage the affairs of the association for some given reasons.
CAN in a statement signed on Thursday by Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant on Media and Communications to CAN President, Rev Samson Ayokunle, noted that the Federal Government has declared war on the church if it moved on to implement the law.
