CAN drags FG to court over CAMA


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has gone to court to challenge the legality or otherwise of the just gazetted controversial Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) 2020, over some provisions which CAN is not comfortable with.

The CAN General Secretary, Barrister Joseph Bade Daramola, said on Monday in Abuja that the suit No FHC/ABJ/CS/244/2021 between the Incorporated Trustees of CAN and 1. Corporate Affairs Commission and 2. Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment was filed before the Federal High Court, Abuja.

He said the case was mentioned on Monday at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

While the plaintiff counsel was led by Joe-Kyari Gadzama, SAN, the CAN leaders present in the court included the General Secretary, Joseph Bade Daramola, Elder Kunle Fagbemi, and Senator Jonathan Zwingina among others.

He said, “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.”
