The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has reacted to Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020.
CAN described it as an “unacceptable, ungodly and a declaration of war against the church” as well as how a secular person cannot be appointed to lead the matters of the spirit.
CAN kicked against the law, and asked that it should be sent back to the National Assembly for amendment. And that the government should focus on other things like providing basic amenities, other than engaging in matters that doesn’t concern it.
CAN is also not the first association to kick against this new law. Bishop David Oyedepo, the Bishop of Living Faith Tabernacle also rejected the law.
However, the National Publicity Secretary of NASFAT does not believe that the intention of the government is to regulate churches and mosques although he also kicked against the appointment of trustees over the religious organization.
Well, I think that there’s a conspiracy against religious organizations in Nigeria, if not why is the government suddenly interested in what goes on in a religious organization when they are still having a hard time in eradicating poverty and insecurity in Nigeria?
