Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday held a traditional engagement of his daughter, Damilola, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
However, State House correspondents were not allowed to cover the reception which was held at the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa.
Newsmen were told that Osinbajo and the groom’s family opted for a low-keyed event.
The ceremony started with a traditional marriage at Osinbajo’s Aguda House official residence.
Damilola is getting married to Oluseun Bakare.
The reception was attended by the chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and some state governors among others.
Oyegun also wrote a special congratulatory letter to the vice president, his wife and the intending couple.
The letter reads: “My wife, Victoria and I, extend very hearty congratulations to you and your wife, Her Excellency, Dolapo Osinbajo, on the joyful news of the wedding of your daughter Oluwadamilola to Oluseun Bakare.
“We wish the young couple the very best blessings of married life.
“As proud parents of Oluwadamilola, we wish to celebrate and credit you for such a wonderful and Christian upbringing that produced such an amazing bride.
“May the good Lord continue to lead your way and bless your family.”
The church wedding is scheduled to take place at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, on Saturday.
The reception for guests will be held at the old Banquet Hall thereafter.
