Pastor Enoch Adeboye visited Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, earlier today, in the state House, Abuja.
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, amidst the controversy generated by the newly signed CAMA law that enables the Federal government to remove and replace the board of trustees of any church.
Some notable clerics like Bishop Oyedepo, Chris Oyakhilome have also publicly kicked against the move by the FG.
President Muhammadu Buhari had signed the Company and Allied Matters Acts, CAMA into law on August 7, 2020, and the CAC intends to apply the law in churches.
Under the law, religious bodies and charity organisations will be strictly regulated by the registrar-general of Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and a supervising minister.
CAMA provides that the commission may by order, suspend the trustees of an association or a religious body and appoint an interim manager or managers to coordinate its affairs where it reasonably believes that there has been any misconduct or mismanagement, or where the affairs of the association are being run fraudulently or where it is necessary or desirable for the purpose of public interest.
Adeboye who is yet to publicly comment on the new law, was received at the state house by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who is also a pastor in RCCG and the Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Ibrahim Gambari.
