Registration of all types of marriages is a Statutory function of the Local Government Council in Nigeria 2. That Form E should be re-issued to the Claimant and others by the Local Government Council in Nigeria 3. That Local Government issued marriage certificate not in conformity with Form E is valid by virtue of Section 34 of the Marriage Act. 4. Formation of marriage under the exclusive legislative list Item 61 2nd Schedule is regulated by the Federal Government through the Ministry of Internal Affairs The publication referred to in a judgment delivered by a Lagos High Court, fraudulently misrepresents the fact that the Court barred Local Governments in Nigeria from registration of marriages when indeed the Court restate that it is Local Government in Nigeria that is empowered to register all types of marriage and that Local Government should register marriage under the Act with Form E as obtained under the Marriage Act LFN 1990. While acknowledging that marriages issued with documents by the local governments which is not in conformity with form E is held to be legal under ‘Section 34’ of the Marriage Act. The main or only issue that is still a matter of contention on which the Federal controlled/established Marriage Registry claimed is the reason for its power to registered marriage is Item 61 2nd Schedule 1999 Constitution, which claims is a subject before the Federal High Court, the Lagos High Court does not says this item gave the Ministry of Interior power to register marriage but rather re-emphasize that registration of marriage is a Local Government Statutory function. Item 61 of the Exclusive List on the 2nd Schedule of the 1999 CFRN, provides that- “The formation, annulment and dissolution of Marriages other than marriages under Islamic law and customary law including matrimonial causes relating thereto” item 61 matters are exclusively for the Federal Government to legislate, however, under the present Constitutional arrangement the item 61 Exclusive legislative powers is vested in the National Assembly by Section 4(1)&(2) Part 11, 1999 CFRN, 4(1)“The legislative powers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria shall be vested in a National Assembly for the Federation which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives” Federal Government don’t legislate, National Assembly legislates, Section 4(2) stipulate thus ”The National Assembly shall have power to make laws for the peace, order and good government of the Federation or any part thereof, with respect to any matter included in the Exclusive Legislative list set out in Part 1 of the Second Schedule to this Constitution” The Chief law enforcement officer of the Federation and Minister of Justice submission in the Suit to close dawn Federal control marriage registries (herewith attached) stated that only Local Governments can register marriages and that Federal Ministry of Internal Affairs Federal Marriage Registries are not empowered to register marriages as offices opened in that name can only keep document of licensed place of worship. The fraudulent publication to claim that Local Government marriages registered are illegal is a misrepresentation of fact calculated to mislead the public which is not contained in the judgment as obtained from the trial court. The media publications on the judgment delivered is nothing but misleading and a distraction at stopping the Federal Marriage registry from its illegality of registration of marriages in Nigeria.
