On the 13th of Dec., The federal High Court sitting in Lagos declared that it was unconstitutional for the federal government to conduct marriages, declaring it as illegal and invalid, for example, all solemnisation of unions at the Ikoyi marriage registry, Lagos.
The Judge, Justice D. E. Osiagor, submitted that the conduct of marriages and issuance of certificates were statutorily the job of the local governments as provided by the law.
The judge added that the acts of the federal government through the Ministry of Interior, operating marriage registries was beyond their powers and held that all marriages conducted by federal marriage registries or through their agents were illegal and invalid.
He consequently ordered the closure of all federal marriage registries opened by the ministry, including that of the Ikoyi marriage registry with immediate effect.
Reacting to the news, Banky W took to his Twitter to jokingly refer to his beautiful wife, Adesuwa as his baby mama since their marriage is considered to be illegal and invalid.
Simi on the other hand asked her husband, AG baby if they have been living in sin since they are not legally married. Adekunle Gold revealed to her that isn’t his problem and the only thing he wants is for Ikoyi Registry to refund his money.
