Speaking at a public lecture and book launch on Tuesday, the Ameer of MSSN in Abaji, Haruna Kure, said the desire to demand for a bye law for registration of marriages was due to the way and manner some government agencies as well as foreign embassies compelled muslim women to obtain marriage certificate under marriage Act before their documents will be processed.

He said the MSSN noted that marriage certificate usually obtained at various issuing offices carries the caption “Marriage Act” which he said indicated that the marriage of the holder of such marriage certificate is contracted in accordance with the marriage Act.

He said the implications to a holder of such marriage certificate is that such marriage cannot be separated  or dissolve during life time except by a valid court judgment of divorce.

According to him, either of the parties before the death of the other shall not contract another marriage, while such marriage remain not dissolve.

“And what is sure and certain from the above is that this marriage certificate issued and its registration thereof, do not have found a function of the local to register all marriages under item 1 (I) of the fourth schedule of the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria, 1999 as (amended),” he said.

He said since there is a provision of section 55 (g) of the local government Act of 1997 applicable to FCT specifically and emphatically for legislative arm to make a bye law, there was the need for the legislators to make a bye law for registration marriages rather than marriage under the” marriage Act”.

Kure, however, disclosed that the MSSN had already written a letter accompanied with a proposed bye law to chairman of the council, Alhaji Abdulrahman Ajiya, and legislative arm of the council making a case that will take care of muslim sisters in the area.

The Agabe of Gwargwada -Ugbada, His Royal Highness (HRH) Alhaji Hussaini Agabi Mam, who is also the patron, commended the MSSN executives for organising the lecture and launching of book titled “Dispute Negotiation: An insight of the reality of Hudaybiyya.
