Vice President Yemi Osinbajo addresses complications arising due to CAMA bill
Vice president of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has finally addressed complains by pastors and Christian leaders on the newly passed Company and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) bill.
The bill has been a major point of discussion by pastors across the nation.
“CAMA” provides that the commission may by order, suspend the trustees of an association or a religious body and appoint an interim manager or managers to coordinate its affairs where it reasonably believes that there has been any misconduct or mismanagement, or where the affairs of the association are being run fraudulently or where it is necessary or desirable for the purpose of public interest.
While speaking at the just concluded annual general conference of the Nigeria Bar Association earlier this week, Professor Yemi Osinbajo said;
“We have a process by which this (CAMA law) can be redressed. Whatever the proposal for amendment may be, whatever the view of the leadership of the church may be, regarding the question of how the trustees, whether they are interim trustees or not, can be put into a proposal that will be brought to the National Assembly for consideration for amendment to the law, that is the process which is entirely opened and ought to be pursued.
“We are in a democracy and there is a process by which things can be done and that process is the one where you bring forward amendments to the National Assembly and they will do whatever is considered useful in the circumstance.”
The vice president added that the concerns raised by opponents of the law were more of fear of the law being likely to be misused by the trustees and not necessarily aimed at avoiding accountability.
