Nigerians living northern part of the Country have berated the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC for turning down its request to register ‘Shege ka fasa’ security outfit for the region.
TheNewspad reports that the CNG had in February 2020 unveiled a voluntary regional security initiative codenamed “Shege Ka Fasa” in Kaduna.
The move was perceived as inference from Amotekun security framework recently initiated and legalized by the State governments in South Western part of Nigeria through support of the individual State houses of Assemblies.
Addressing newsmen on Saturday in Kaduna, the spokesperson of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, threatened to take legal action against the refusal by CAC.
He lamented that it was contradictory for the CAC to accept to register the Western Nigerian Security Network and at the same time reject a similar application from the North.
“As a further step, we have written the office of the Attorney General of the Federation intimating him of the stages we have taken,” Mr Suleiman added.
The group, therefore, disclosed that it would be taking legal action against the CAC for denying them their “constitutional right to registration”.
According to him, while the general northern population has completely embraced the move, the CAC has turned down the request for the registration of the ‘Northern Nigerian Security Initiative’.
Mr Suleiman said: “The CNG takes strong exception to the refusal by the CAC to register the proposed Northern Nigeria Security Initiative via their letter of denial dated March 09, 2020 on the ground that the word “security” is misleading.
“We find it contradictory for the CAC to accept to register the Western Nigerian Security Network and at the same time reject another application with a similar title from the North.
“The Corporate Affairs Commission should note that, we at the CNG are conversant with the provisions of the Company and Allied Matters Act that makes allowance for the consent of the CAC Registrar General in such cases.”
The spokesperson, further disclosed that the group had also engaged the CAC Registrar-General for intervention in a letter dated March 18, 2020, but to no avail.
