However, CAN, in a report by the President. Reverend Samson Ayokunle narrated the piece of legislation as a time bomb waiting to detonate, PFN said it would go to court to challenge it. The Act, among others, set out that religious bodies and charity organizations would be strictly regulated by the Registrar-General of the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC and a supervising minister.

In addition, it provides that the commission may, by order suspend the trustees of an association of a religious body and appoint an interim manager or managers to co-ordinate its affairs, where it reasonably believes that there has been any misconduct or mishandling or where the affairs of the association are being run fraudulently or where is necessary or desirable for the purpose of public interest.

“The law to say the least is unacceptable, ungodly, reprehensible and ill-wind that blows no one any good. It is a time bomb waiting to explode,” the CAN president said. CAN recalled that during the first term of the President, there was a public hearing conducted by the National Assembly on the Non-Governmental Organisations Bill, tagged. “Bill for an Act To Provide For The Establishment Of The Non-Governmental Organizations. NGOs. Regulatory Commission For The Supervision, Co-ordination And Monitoring of Non-Governmental Organizations” which CAN and many NGOs attended.

Ayokunle stated: At the public hearing, the Bill that sought to bring the religious organizations and NGOs under the control and influence of the government was totally rejected because it would snuff life out of the church and rank the church as a secular institution under secular control. We thought it was all over until we heard of the CAMA that was assented to by the President, making the rejected bill a law. “The satanic section of the controversial and ungodly law is Section 839 (1) and (2) which empowers the commission to suspend trustees of an association (in this case, the church) and appoint interim managers to manage the affairs of the association for some given reasons.

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. CAN/PFN’s Reaction to FG over new CAMA Report – Manna Online News & Updates

The church cannot be controlled by the government because of its spiritual responsibilities and obligations. This is why we are calling on the federal government to stop the implementation of obnoxious and ungodly laws until the religious institutions are excepted from it. We urge on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently return the law to the National Assembly for immediate amendment. Nigeria should not be compared with any other nation when it comes to the relationship between religious institutions and the government. In Nigeria, people’s religions are tied to their humanity and, of course, their life.

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? For example, 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.”

He, therefore, advised government to place more concern on providing infrastructure for the people, focus on better health provision, food, education, adequate security and empowerment, among others. The government should not be a busy body in a matter that does not belong to it. The government does not have the technical expertise to run the church of God because of its spiritual nature. “If the government is bent on imposing a law on us which the entire Church in Nigeria is against, then, they have declared war on Christianity and the agenda to destroy the Church which we have spoken against before now is coming to the open more clearly.

If you cannot give us good amenities of life, we would not allow you to take away our liberty to worship our Maker. What good thing again will you not take away from the people in the name of being in power? ‘’Are we not running a democracy which is a government of the people by the people and for the people? Is this not gradually becoming a dictatorship or what was essence of the public hearing you called us for when you had made up your mind not to consider the position of Christians at all, which we presented during the public hearing?
We call on all well meaning Nigerians to ask the Federal Government to suspend the law because we do not need it in this nation,” Ayokunle said.

On his part, National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria PFN, Rev. Felix Omobude, vowed to deploy every constitutional means to upturn the unacceptable ‘copy and paste’ legislation imported by the National Assembly to undermine the authority of religious organisations in the country. He told Vanguard in a telephone interview that his vociferous group of Christians was studying the voluminous piece of legislation and would in no distant future respond appropriately
“We were told the National Assembly was working on an Ease of Doing BusIness Bill and we didn’t know that lawmakers were going to smuggle into the legislation a provision that would affect the religious organisations. I can tell you that we earlier made our position known to the legislators.”
