Oyedepo Rejects CAMA, Says No One Can Appoint a Trustee over His Church

The founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has warned the President Muhammadu Buhari government against the application of the Company and Allied Matters Acts (CAMA) in churches.

Oyedepo said the church is directly connected to God and does not operate under the rules of men.

Recall that the CAMA was signed into law on August 7 by President Buhari.

Among other things, under the new law, 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.
