Nigerian Christian leaders, under the umbrella of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has written and sent a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, complaining over the newly amended Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020.
The letter signed by the President of CAN, Dr Samson Ayokunle and was delivered to Buhari by a former Chaplain of Aso Villa Chapel and General Overseer of All Christians Fellowship Mission, Maitama, Rev. William Okoye.
It reads- “We consider the Act, as indeed, a complex of statecraft compendium, laden with issues that are grossly inimical to national interest, security (- peace and stability), and overall wellbeing of the Nigerian-state.
“From the reactions of stakeholders and a cross-section of the Nigerian-state, it is apparent that the Act either did not receive input from the respective various interest groups or failed to accommodate their views, sundry concerns and varying interests of the Nigerian people.”
The Association said the law ought to welcome and accommodate the sundry and varying interests of the Nigerian people and urged the President to suspend the offensive parts.
