David Bamgbose has criticised the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020 signed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Many clerics have lashed out on the law. Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church and the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, had hit out on the law, which was described as satanic and ungodly legislation aimed against the church.
Bamgbose said the law is capable of instigating a religious war.
“Religious war will be too catastrophic. It is unthinkable. I advise that whatever is the agenda of this government, it should step back on the issue of religion. It is the most sensitive. A good student of history will not do what the government is doing.”
“People can die because of their religious belief. I, Bamgbose speaking, am ready for anything. I am saying my religion is my life. And that’s how most people feel about religion,” he said.
