The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye. has kicked against the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking through the Head of Media and Public Relations of RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, Pastor Adeboye said he supports the position of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN on the matter.
Adeboye also urged the President to withdraw the law signed on August 7, 20202 and expunge Section 839 of CAMA which gives a provision for churches to be regulated by the registrar of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and a supervising minister.
He said: “The stand of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and the leadership of the church on issues like this is not always different from whatever the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN.
“We always align ourselves with whatever the stand of the leadership of CAN and PFN on issues like this. The Redeemed Christian Church of God does not take any decision that is at variance with the stand of CAN and PFN and the same thing applies concerning this very issue.
“Daddy will not take a stand different from the ones of the two organisations, CAN and PFN. CAN and PFN have spoken on the issue of CAMA and as far as the Redeemed Christian Church of God is concerned that is our position too. We are in alignment with that stand.”
