Senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, Lauretta Onochie slammed Bishop David Oyedepo for criticizing the application of the Company and Allied Matters Acts (CAMA) in churches, following its signing into law by President Muhammadu Buhari on August 7, 2020.
The founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide questioned the rationality behind subjecting churches to same laws as companies, saying that such laws were borne out of government’s jealousy about the prosperity recorded by the church.
In reaction to Oyedepo’s comment, Lauretta Onochie stated that as long as Oyedepo lives and operates within the entity called Nigeria, he will live by Nigerian rules and laws. She added that for Oyedepo to live by his own laws, he will have to manufacture his own country.
Her tweet read;
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 law
Enough of lawlessness
