Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has filed a lawsuit before the Federal High Court Abuja challenging the legality of the just gazetted controversial Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020 (CAMA).
This was contained in a statement on Monday by its General Secretary, Joseph Daramola.
The Christian body stated that it is not comfortable with some provisions of CAMA 2020, hence, its decision to challenge the matter in court.
