FG Reduces Fees For Statutory Marriage In Nigeria by Amotolongbo(f): 8:19pm On Jun 29
The Federal Government has approved a downward review of the fees chargeable for services related to the Statutory Marriage under the Marriage Act CAP M6 LFN 2004 to commence from Wednesday, July 1.

Mr Mohammed Manga, Director Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Interior, made this known in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Manga said the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola made the disclosure in a Public Notice signed by the Permanent Secretary and Principal Registrar of Marriages in Nigeria, Georgina Ehuriah.

Aregbesola said that the adjustment was an off-shoot of the recommendations made by stakeholders at the Sensitisation Conferences held across the country in the third quarter of 2019.

According to him, the fees chargeable for the Issuance of Fresh Marriage Licence to a place of Public Worship has been reduced from N30,000 for two (2) years to N6,000 yearly, payable for five years in the first instance.

He said further that for the Renewal of Marriage Licence by a Place of Public Worship, the sum of N5,000 has been approved per year, payable for three (3) years at each instance, as against the N30,000 earlier charged annually.

The Minister added that the fees chargeable for Statutory Ordinary Marriage has also been cut down from N21,000 to N15,000 while that of Statutory Special Licence has been slashed from N35,000 to N25,000.

Aregbesola said that a link has been created on the Ministry’s website; (www.ecitibiz.interior.gov.ng) to enable States and Local Governments access the Ministry’s automation platform for services relating to the conduct of Statutory Marriage in the country.

He called on stakeholders to take advantage of the reduction in fees to licence their Places of Public Worship and continue to celebrate Statutory Marriage as specified by the Law.

What a wonderful achievement by the APC led federal govt cheesy. Well, there is a part of Nigeria that the government marries for them (aka mass wedding). Maybe with this black friday discount, most of them will begin to take up the responsibility themselves.

Please they should look into traditional marriage list too.

Traditional marriage list and fees in Igbo land and Sout-south Nigeria makes marriage scary to young men.

Please our government should interven for us.

The Almighty God in His infinite wisdom made it easy but humans complicated everything. State should not be involved in marriages.
When we get to that level, marriage certificate will no longer be a prerequisite to obtain some favors in this country.

cool

I always knew that marriage, wedding licences and all are beneficial to the state despite recent revelations that marriage has outlived its usefulness.

There has been a sharp drop in marriage rates all over the world, so, Nigeria like the rest of the world is dropping the price to encourage more marriages. A venture that would be unsuccessful.

Welcome development. At least this will encourage all young people to get married.
We are sick and tired of hearing of rape issues on daily basis.
