Resist “Evil NGO Bill”, Fani-Kayode Urges Nigerians

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has called on Nigerians to rise up and resist the “evil bill” seeking to establish a commission that would regulate non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

Mr. Fani-Kayode made the call in a tweet on Monday.

He said the bill would cripple religious organizations like churches and mosques.

“The NGO Bill is evil. It will cripple Churches, mosques and all NGO’s and bring them under govt control. I advise Nigerians to resist it,” the former minister tweeted.

The bill, sponsored by Hon. Umar Jibril, the deputy majority leader of the House of Representatives, has been condemned by many observers.

They believe the bill is aimed at clamping down on the organisations.

But lawmakers say it will help curb alleged corruption among NGOs in the country.
