Though details of the meeting were not disclosed at press time, it is holding at a time prominent Nigerian clerics have complained about components of the newly signed Companies and Allied Matter Act (CAMA) which seeks to regulate not-for-profit organisations including churches.

Popular Christian clerics like David Oyedepo and Johnson Suleiman have condemned the parts of the law that give the government the power to appoint administrators for churches and non-governmental organisations under certain conditions.

Prominent civic groups in Nigeria, including the SERAP, have also complained about the new law.
