Call it season of “WHALE” wedding, you are definitely right. It was between son and daughter of Oyo and Kano state governors, then Aliko Dangote’s daughter.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had on 2018 Valentine’s day (February 14) took to twitter to announce the betrothal of Oludamilola to Oluseun, and fixing the wedding for March 15 and 17.
Osinbajo had affirmed that the wedding would be low key, which thousands of Nigerians wrong that it would be another influential money-splashing union like Nigerians saw recently in Nano where son of a governor and a daughter of another governor tied the knot.
All the photos on the internet at the moment are the same, pointing to the fact that they were officially sent to media houses .
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.
The Cable had quoted a family source as saying, “Left to the VP and his wife, it would have been the smallest and simplest of ceremonies, taking place in their backyard, especially given the current mood of the nation.
“Nonetheless the VP seems to be swiming against a rather strong tide. For instance the VP’s position compels him to inform and invite dignitaries, many of who will cry blue murder if left out of the invitations.
“But for a man known for his unassuming nature and humble mien, these circumstances have invited the dilemma of how to moderate the occasion and balance out the wedding outlook considering the current mood of the nation,” the source said.
We wish the couple happy married life
