Wickedness Association of Nigeria: CAC says certificate was fake, false, fraudulent 

Nigeria’s Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has denied ever registering the Wickedness Association of Nigeria, Lokoja Chapter, a certificate of which has surfaced and been circulating on the social media.

CAC on Monday posted a disclaimer in which it denied issuing the certificate, saying it could not have registered the association for reasons it explained.

The commission said “We wish to categorically state that the purported certificate of registration of Wickedness Association of Nigeria Lokoja Chapter, was not and could not have been issued by the Commission for the following reasons:

Wickedness Association of Nigeria, CAC, certificate, fake, false, fraudulent 
CAC said this certificate was fake
  1. The Commission does not register Associations as Business Names;
  2. The name and objects of the “Association” offend the provisions of Section 852(1)(c) in that that they are undesirable, offensive and contrary to public policy; and
  3. The officer who purportedly signed the certificate had retired from the service of the Commission long before the date the certificate was purportedly issued.

CAC therefore concluded that the “purported certificate of registration of Wickedness Association of Nigeria Lokoja Chapter is false, fake and a forgery. It is wicked and fraudulent.”

Already, Nigerians who felt encouraged by the possibility of getting diabolically-oriented bodies registered have begun consulting with lawyers to obtain certificates for them from the CAC.

A Kano-based legal practitioner, Umar Isa Sulaiman, said “On seeing the certificate a client approached a junior in my office consulting him on how they will register Magician Association, Kano Chapter…”Wickedness Association of Nigeria, CAC, certificate, fake, false, fraudulent 

Others with similar experiences across Nigeria said it is good that the CAC has cleared the air on the issue.
