Peter Anyiman, a cook who has served Catholic Priest Rev. Father Michael Tumba for 18 years got wedded last Saturday at the Our Lady Perpetual Help Cathedral, Makurdi, Benue. The wedding was all the more exciting as the governor of Benue, Gabriel Suswam, served as the best man on the day.
At the wedding reception, Gov. Suswam told the guests that Anyiman had faithfully served Tumba in Abuja for 18 years and had demonstrated commitment to his job, hence deserved to be honoured. The governor challenged people to take their jobs seriously.
Putting his advice to practice, the governor took time to adjust the groom’s tie and wipe sweat from his face to the admiration of the guests who attended the ceremony.
Anyiman said he considered himself lucky to have the governor serve as his best man and could not have wished for a better wedding gift.
