CAMA: You Must Submit Details Of Your Finances, No Going Back – FG Declares

The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has said that those with contrary opinions about the new Company and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) should better stop because there is no going back

CAC said the new act has come to stay in the country despite the public outcry that has greeted it.

The Commission said it was only waiting for the legislature to gazette it for immediate implementation of the law.

The CAMA bill was recently signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari, and was included in his list of achievements for the last one year.

The CAC Registrar-General, Alhaji Garba Abubakar, while speaking to Commerce Correspondents Association of Nigeria (CICAN) in Abuja  wondered why the act was being opposed by religious bodies, especially the churches.

“They must henceforth subject their finances and expenditures for proper auditing, and copies sent to us at the CAC,” he said.

He explained further, “The new legal framework applies to all organizations registered with us; be it a religious organisation, NGO or CSO.

Remember that they also have constitutions guiding them. The criteria to be a trustee of registered organisations are clearly spelt out in the laws establishing them.

Fundamental questions were put forward by him; “How is it that a registered member who qualifies to be a trustee in an organisation would not want government to know how the organisation is run? What are the responsibilities of the trustees?

“What are the responsibilities of the governing council or the board? How do you manage the affairs of the organisation? How do you use or expend the income and properties of the organisation? How do you appoint members of the governing board? These are the issues the new CAMA has come to address.”

Recall that the Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN), through it’s Chairman, had recently cried foul and described CAMA as ‘satanic’, demanding that the President halts the implementation of “the obnoxious and ungodly law until religious institutions are exempted from it.”
