Forget Outrageous CAMA Law, Leave Buhari Alone – Bamgbose Tells Christian Leaders




Christian leaders have been advised to forget the outrageous Company and Allied Matters Act (CAMA 2020) and instead focus on winning souls for God.

This advise was given by Olusegun Bamgbose, National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG).

Naija News reports that Christian leaders have kicked against the signing of the controversial law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

A portion of the legislative piece tagged ‘Incorporated Trustees’, states that religious bodies and charity organizations will now be strictly regulated by the Registrar – General of the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC and the supervising Minister.

Speaking to Daily Post on Tuesday, Bamgbose admitted that the law empowers the Commission to suspend Trustees of an Association and appoint an interim manager to run the affairs of the organization.

He said: “This is no doubt outstandingly odious, outrageous and obnoxious, nevertheless Christian leaders should be urged to focus on winning souls for Christ and praying for peace in the country, rather than dissipating their energies on laws that can’t be implemented.

“As a lawyer, I know that the law is dead on arrival. The implementation will be difficult. The Church should leave Buhari alone.

“God can always defend Himself without our input. On the other hand, the Church may not even be the target.

“Whether it is or not, Buhari should be spared of undue pressure, let God act for Himself.

“Let’s rest this matter for now and concentrate on winning souls and praying for the nation.”
