The chairman of the Lagos state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Apostle Alex Bamgbola, has told Femi Fani-Kayode that he will become the president of Nigeria someday if he remains humble.

Apostle Bamgbola made the pronouncement in Lagos on Sunday, August, 30, at the occasion of Bishop Isaac Idahosa’s celebration of 31 years in ministry.

Fani-Kayode, who has been in the news recently for insulting a journalist, swiftly went on his knees to claim the pronouncement.

Speaking with Legit TV, Fani-Kayode condemned the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said any law that seeks to regulate the affairs of the church is evil, adding that those that made the law are also evil.

Fani-Kayode said: “My position is simple. You cannot regulate the affairs of the church. The church of years has stood for many years; hundreds of thousands of years ever since it was established.

“And great powers have come and gone that tried to destroy it; it’s never worked and it can never work. And any law that seeks to regulate the affairs of churches is absolutely evil and I consider that section of that act to be evil. And those that proposed it are evil and it’s unacceptable. And we will not take it, and it will never stand in Jesus’ name, that’s my position.”

The Christian body said that the Nigerian Government had declared war on the church by trying to implement the new law.

The Christian Association of Nigeria has described the Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020 signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari on August 7 as ‘ungodly’, saying it will not be accepted by it.

In a statement on Thursday by Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant on Media and Communications to CAN President, Rev Samson Ayokunle, the Christian body said that the Nigerian Government had declared war on the church by trying to implement the new law.

The statement reads in part, “The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria rejects outrightly the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020 that was assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari recently,  noting that the law is unacceptable,  ungodly,  reprehensible and an ill-wind that blows no one any good.”

According to section 839 (1) and (2) of the law, the supervising minister is empowered to suspend trustees of an association (in this case, the church) and appoint the interim managers to manage the affairs of the association for some given reasons.

Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Dr David Oyedepo, had earlier condemned the law, saying it was against the work and progress of the church.
