CAN’s basic secretary, Joseph Daramola in an announcement launched on Monday March 15 stated the Christian group filed a lawsuit towards the federal authorities over some “satanic part of the controversial and ungodly legislation”.
“The affiliation resolved to go to courtroom in any case makes an attempt to persuade the federal authorities why it mustn’t intervene or intervene with the administration of the Church within the nation by any of its businesses failed.
“The satanic part of the controversial and ungodly legislation is Part 839 (1) &(2), which empowers the Fee to droop trustees of an affiliation (on this case, the church) and appoint the interim managers to handle the affairs of the affiliation for some given causes, is unacceptable.”
