Buhari, governors attend Osinbajo daughter’s ‘private’ wedding

Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja – The Punch 

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday led top government officials and captains of industry, among others, to attend the wedding of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo’s daughter, Damilola.

The wedding service of Damilola and her husband, Oluseun, was held earlier in the day at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja.

The guests thereafter moved to the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, where the reception took place.

Buhari was accompanied to the reception by his wife, Aisha.

State governors, ministers, presidential aides and other top government officials were present at the reception.

Like the traditional engagement that took place on Thursday, journalists were not allowed to cover any of the Saturday’s two events.

Rather, the vice-president’s media team had earlier advised that journalists will not be allowed to “record or film the event.”

The media office promised to “share information and images — still and video — about the events later in the day.”

The only concession given was that “cameras are however welcome to record the arrival and departure formalities at the church.”

In some of the photographs later released by the President’s media office, Buhari and his wife were seen exchanging pleasantries with the new couple and posing for group photographs with the couple and their parents.

The President was also captured shaking hands with some state governors that included those of Akwa Ibom, Borno, Imo, Nassarawa, Ogun, Oyo, Osun and Ondo, among others.

The President’s wife supervised cutting of the cake at the reception.

She expressed the conviction that Damilola will make a good wife, having been brought up by a pastor.

She prayed for the couple that their love will endure.

Our correspondent learnt that guests were not allowed into the venue with their mobile phones.
