CAMA 2020 will help Nigeria tackle corruption – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, said the controversial Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020 (CAMA) will enhance the fight against corruption.

Mr Buhari said this at the Open Government Partnership (OGP) 2020 Virtual Leaders’ Summit on Thursday.

The bill assented by President Buhari on August 7 has generated furore amongst Nigerians.

The critics, majorly clergymen, condemned certain provisions of the law that empowers the government to appoint administrators for churches and non-governmental organisations under certain conditions.

Popular Christian clerics and prominent civic groups in Nigeria, including the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), have kicked against the new law.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) under the leadership of Samson Ayokunle also called on the President to suspend its implementation.

Meanwhile, at the summit which is part of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA75) in New York, United States, President Buhari explained that the law will enhance transparency and corporate accountability in the fight against corruption.

Participants at the virtual event include Heads of State and Government from Argentina, Canada, France, Georgia and Germany.

According to a statement signed Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Buhari said his government has been committed to the anti-corruption war.
