Lauretta Onochie, media aide to President Buhari, has reacted to the warning by Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel.
Odince News Reported that Oyedepo warned President Buhari on Sunday, August 16, against the application of the Company and Allied Matters Acts (CAMA) in churches.
Onochie replied Oyedepo on her twitter handle on Monday, August 17.
She wrote, ”I hope this is not true. If it is, Oyedepo will have to manufacture his own country and live by his own laws.
”As long as he lives and operates within the entity called Nigeria, he will live by Nigerian rules and laws. He will do as he’s told by the lawFace with rolling eyes
”Enough of lawlessness.”
Under the new CAMA law signed on August 7 by President Buhari, 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.
According to Oyedepo, such laws were borne of out of the jealousy of “wicked leaders” about the prosperity recorded by the church.
