Nigeria New Marriage Law Targeted Solely Against Christians – PFN


The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has kicked against the newly introduced marriage certificate law by the Federal Government and chided the Ministry of Interior of imposing such anti-Christian law on the church in Nigeria.

Speaking through it’s National President, Rev. (Dr.) Felix Omobude, the PFN described the newly introduced marriage certificate law by the federal government as exploitative and an attempt to commercialize Christian marriages in the country.

The federal government, had, through the Ministry of Interior recently announced a compulsory N30,000 licence charge for Christian worship centres for the conduct of statutory marriages in churches and N21,000 charge for each marriage certificate issued.

Omobude however, in a statement he personally signed on Sunday in Benin, Edo state, said the new law is targeted at the church.

“This is very unfair and to the best of our understanding, the new law is targeted against the Church because the traditional and Islamic weddings are exempted from paying the new marriage certificate fees.” PFN president said.

“PFN is at a loss as to why Church marriages should be in the exclusive list of the nation’s constitution.

“The PFN, therefore calls on the federal government to immediately shelve the unpopular policy targeted against Christian marriages in the country.

“If the Ministry of Interior is in dire need of funds, it should look elsewhere and resist the temptation of placing extra financial burden on the Christians and their churches,” Omobude said.

He added that the PFN would use all legitimate means to make the federal government rescind on the new marriage certificate law.

  1. The New Nigeria Marriage Law is purely a target against the Christians and the Church and a clear indication that the Nigeria Government is actually breeding EVIL. This is not a sign of UNITY and Togetherness that accommodate both Christians and Muslims in the Country ever since the independence. Why is the law solely targeted only at Christians Minus the Christians? Is this not a hate against the christians? Let us remember that we have three types of marriage:Traditional, Christians and Muslims’ Marriage. Why is the Law ONESIDED??? We are one NIGERIA. JESUS still remain LORD OVER ALL AND EVERYTHING

  2. A combination of legally and spiritual fight against such policies targeting Christians should be our modus operandi. There is no doubt the Buhari administration is trying everything so hard to frustrate the Christians in this country and islamize the country . God will spiritually deal with them when we continuously cry out to HIM.
