Ikoyi Registry and other marriages, according to the FG, are valid.

Marriages performed by the federal government are still legal and binding, according to the government.

The Federal High Court ruled earlier today that marriages conducted by the Ikoyi Registry and other federal marriage registries were invalid.

In a suit between the Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State, the Federal Government, and the Ministry of Interior, the Federal High Court in Lagos ruled that they could not issue valid marriage certificates.

The Ministry of Interior, on the other hand, has issued a statement claiming that their position has been misinterpreted and that marriages performed by them are valid and not annulled.

Shuaib Belgore, the ministry’s Permanent Secretary and Principal Registrar of Marriages, said in a statement that “the issue of formation, annulment, and other matrimonial causes are exclusively reserved to the Federal Government under the 1st Schedule of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

He also stated that the Ministry of Interior is authorized to conduct marriages under the Marriage Act’s Legal Notice and that the claimants filed a similar suit in 2016 and are thus abusing the legal system.

He urged the general public not to be alarmed because the marriages have not changed.
