Controversial media personality, Daddy Freeze, on Tuesday reacted to the judgement of the Federal High Court declaring marriages conducted at the Ikoyi registry as invalid.
Naija News had earlier reported that Justice Daniel Osaigor gave this ruling on Tuesday in a suit filed by Eti Osa Local Government Area of Lagos state against the ministry.
In the suit, the local council had challenged the ministry’s power to operate marriage registries, conduct marriages and issue marriage certificates.
The council also urged the court to order the closure of all marriage registries opened and operated by the ministry, saying that the federal government has no power to conduct marriages and issue marriage certificates.
Delivering his judgement, Justice Osaigbor ruled that it is unconstitutional for the federal government to take over and perform the duties of local governments.
Daddy Freeze in his reaction to the development said that might be why his first marriage didn’t work out as everything is ‘null and void’.
The media personality further stated that if the judgement had been passed earlier, he wouldn’t have needed a divorce.
Daddy Freeze wrote, “No wonder my first marriage didn’t work. It was null and void from the get-go.
“If this report had come out sooner, I won’t even have needed a divorce, na everybody go your way for end am.”
