Court Declares The Power Of Ikoyi Registry To Conduct Marriages In Lagos NULL by unitysheart(m): 7:04pm On May 17
The Lagos State Government has secured another court injunction restraining the Federal Government’s owned Registry in Ikoyi from conducting marriages, saying it was unconstitutional for the Federal Government to be usurping the power of the State Government and the Local Government in this regard.

The judgment delivered by Hon Chuka Aunstine Obiozor with the reference number SUIT NO: FHC/L/CS/1760/16 of Lagos High Court in favour of Lagos State and which took effect on Monday 30th of April 2018, reaffirmed that all the marriage registries in the Local Government and Local Council Development Areas in Lagos are the authentic and legally-binding government division established to carry out such function.

Addressing a Press Conference on the development on Thursday, the Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Muslim Folami said the Ministry was in the process of officially communicating the development to the various embassies in the State, stressing that the decision of the court was supreme and was legally binding on all, the embassies inclusive.

Nice one,
I hope this also nullifies all the marriages consummated there?

Especially Akpororo's wedding and that of Mama Kamarudeen's first daughter.

There is clearly some level of autonomy and fiscal federalism in our country.
It is up to the states AND local governments to get the courts to exercise and expand it.

I hope the FG appeals, Ikoyi registry has done well in registering marriages, you don't want the process abused. Imagine if local government offices starts registering marriages, that's absurd.

Does it mean all the marriages conducted in Ikoyi registry are null and void? If this is tenable, we will have a lot of common law couples
