CAMA: You Will Have To Manufacture Your Country – Buhari’s Media Aide To Oyedepo
President Muhammadu Buhari aide on media Lauretta Onochie has reacted to the warning by the founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, popularly known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, against the application of the Company and Allied Matters Acts (CAMA) in churches.
Bishop Oyedepo has on Sunday sternly warned that the church is directly affiliated to God and therefore does not operate under the rules of men, or controlled by one.
Under the new CAMA law signed on August 7 by President Buhari, religious bodies (churches and mosques) as well as charity organisations, will be strictly regulated by the Registrar-General of Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and a supervising minister.
According to Oyedepo, such laws were borne of out of the jealousy of “wicked leaders” about the prosperity recorded by the church.
Reacting to the Bishop, Onochie on her Twitter page, stated that Oyedepo will have to live by the laws in Nigeria or manufacture his own country.
Her tweet read:
“Hope this is not true. If it is, Oyedepo will have to manufacture his own country and live by his own laws.
“As long as he lives and operates within the entity called Nigeria, he will live by Nigerian rules and laws.
“He will do as he’s told by the law. Enough of lawlessness.”
