HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES STOP THE NGO REGULATORY 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 by mandating church leaders above a particular tenure to 'resign'. 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.

Petition to: House of Representatives: Federal Republic of Nigeria

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES STOP THE NGO REGULATORY BILL

Your Excellency

Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives

Copy: Senate President

The Senate House, Federal Republic of Nigeria



Greetings  to you Mr Speaker  .
We are constrained to write because  of a bill that has passed the 2nd reading  in the house . The bill with No 1605585 sponsored by  Hon. Buba Jubril sought to regulate   non government  organisations  and civil society organisations  . It is pertinent  to  note that  Churches are registered  as Non government  organisations  in Nigeria  as such the bill is a direct attack on churches .
The bill is anti church  as it will affect  the  operations of churches  and the freedom  to worship as guaranteed  in the constitution  of the  country.
The bill itself is a rehash of the suspended  financial  reporting  council code against churches .

We demand that this Bill be not passed into Law!

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
