The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has sought the intervention of the Federal High Court, Abuja over some vexatious provisions in the just gazetted but controversial Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA), 2020.
In a statement released on Monday by CAN’s General Secretary, Joseph Daramola, the Christian body said it is not comfortable with some provisions of CAMA 2020, hence, its decision to challenge the matter in court.
The suit No FHC/ABJ/CS/244/2021 between the Incorporated Trustees of Christian Association of Nigeria; and the Corporate Affairs Commission as well as the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment was filed before the Federal High Court, Abuja, the statement said.
The case was mentioned at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, it added.
“The Association resolved to go to court after all attempts to convince the Federal government why it should not intervene or interfere with the management of the Church in the country through any of its agencies failed,” the statement partly read.
