The bottom line is that a lot of organisations will be affected…. Cooperatives (Ajo , Esusu etc), Student Association, Alumni, Youth Organizations, Religious organizations, Clubs, Development initiatives etc….
We’ve got lots of issues pending in Nigeria that we should be addressing by now … We need to get #focussed #Naija
More Information about the bill
This Bill seeks to constitute a new Government body with full powers to control Community Based Organisations, Civil Societies and Ngos; by implication this bill will give this body unlimited power to exert undue influence on churches. Organisations who do not meet up with whatever future policies they constitute will not be ‘revalidated’ (revalidation is proposed to hold every 2years) This bill is a morphed version of an effort earlier in January to negate church operations . We seek to stop this Bill because it will affect the operations of churches and the freedom to worship as guaranteed in the constitution of the country.
