This document concentrates on the amendments our membership is suggesting to the Part C of the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA). These suggestions are informed by the NNNGO’s specialist knowledge of the non-profit sector as well as by non-state actors who deliver development outcomes to communities throughout the Federation.


Evidence for this amendment is gathered from respondents to a national consultation within our membership, open for a period of one month during February 2017. The online (telephone) and face-to-face consultations with our members sought the opinions and experiences of non-profits regarding sections of the Part C of CAMA needing amendments. The amendments we have suggested in this document make reference to 777 comments generated by the consultation, made by 379 organisations from 34 States covering the 6 geo-political zones of the country 1.


Based on this evidence, the NNNGO has formulated the following amendments in relation to the Part C of CAMA.
