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 ceremonies 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. Later 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.
