It is now unlawful to get married without undergoing medical screening in Kaduna State.

This followed the passage into law, the Pre-medical Examination Bill 2017, by the State House of Assembly on Thursday.

The law now compels would-be couple to undergo medical tests to determine their health status and compatibility before marriage.

The new law imposes a fine of “not less than One Hundred Thousand Naira(N100.000.00) or imprisonment of not less than six (6) months or both.”

The Deputy Speaker, Mr John Kwaturu, who presided over the assembly’s sitting said the law was necessary to protect couples from avoidable diseases.

He said that the law now makes it compulsory for couples to undergo medical examination twice before marriage.

Kwaturu said that the first test should be conducted three months before marriage and the second screening two weeks to wedding.

The deputy speaker explained that the law also provides that the medical examination would be conducted simultaneously by both parties in approved health facility.

He added that the result of the medical test would be explained to the two parties by the medical doctor, who must issue them with certificate.

Absolute waste of time. If two people agree to marry, why should their health matter to anyone?
