Don’t try it! – Oyedepo fumes as FG introduces revised CAMA bill for religious centres

3 Min Read

Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church , David Oyedepo has rejected the revised Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) which gives government the right to appoint or remove board of trustees for churches without recourse  to a court of law.

This is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari signed the revised Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) bill 2020 into law on Aug 7.

In a sermon at Faith Tabernacle at Ota, Bishop Oyedepo stated it was wrong for any government to meddle in the affairs of the church.

He noted it was even more suspicious that the power to remove board of trustees for churches could not be challenged in a court of law.

The Bishop has issued a strong warning to the Federal Government not to implement the CAMA bill against churches of Christ.

Oyedepo said,  “In the document, they said the registrar-general can remove the trustees without recourse to the court. Don’t try it. This must be from somebody who woke up from the wrong side of the bed after dreaming. The person must have drafted that aspect in the bill as their custom is.

“I am 51 years old in this thing (Christianity), don’t try it. I have been with Jesus for some time and I am sent as a prophet to nations. That a minister can remove the trustees and close the accounts of the church is.

“You don’t know the strength of any man until you molest his wife. The cheapest way for a leader to lose respect is to insult the wife of his worker. He will tell you to take your job and insult you thoroughly.

“Please know that the church is the bride of Christ. We are returning home someday for the big marriage supper of the lamb. It is wisdom to quickly expunge that part that affects the religious body from that document. It is only safe to do that.

“In fact, they said they would appoint managers. So, they can appoint occultists to be managers of church affairs when we are alive. Don’t try it when this crude prophet is alive, when all the sons of the prophets are alive, don’t try it, this is a timely advice.”
