Photo: Benue State Governor serves as cook's best man

Benue State governor Gabriel Suswam served as best man for a cook named Peter Anyiman at his wedding which held over the weekend at Our Lady Perpetual Help Cathedral, in Makurdi, Benue State.

Governor Suswan told guests at the wedding that he decided to serve as Anyiman's best man to honour him because of his commitment to his job. Anyiman has been as serving a cook for Catholic Priest, Rev. Father Michael Tumba in Abuja for over 18 years.

Anyiman expressed his delight at having his own state governor serving as his best man, saying he couldn't have wished for a better wedding gift.

Yes, if you are dedicated to your job, I bet you, it might take time, but there is always a result and honor for you. Now a cook having his gov as a best man. Wat else we he wish for. But am surprise here, thought best manship are for single men only. Still thinking. Cheers. Engr Emy.

Even if its election stunt as many of u claim, it is stil gd n godly. Is it not beta to win pple's hrt by displaying humility dan doing so through violence n oda currupt practices. Hw many Gov. Personally grace occassions not to talk more of being d best man. This is humility of d highest order. Just like d case of Jesus washing his disciple's feet. Others please emulate him
