The House of Representatives has admitted a motion to debate the controversial Corporate Governance Code set by the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, particularly as it relates to non-profit organisations.
The motion, coming under matters of urgent public importance, was admitted as members reconvened on Tuesday after the Christmas and New Year break.
It was moved by the Minority Leader, Mr Leo Ogor, to be debated on Wednesday (tomorrow).
It will be recalled that the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, had resigned on Saturday in compliance with the code.
The development has been greeted with interpretations, including the insinuation that government is attempting to muzzle religious bodies.
The Federal Government reacted on Monday by sacking the board and management of the FRC, a move said to be a face-saving measure to calm nerves.
