The Chairman, Revenue Mobilization, Allocation and Fiscal Commission, Chief Elias Mbam, has condemned the recent killings of Ebonyi citizens of Izzi extraction in Benue State by the suspected Fulani herdsmen. 

Chief Mbam made the condemnation  on Thursday while given out one of his daughters, Dr. Chinenye Mbam in marriage at his country home Nwofe Agbaja in Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

Chief Mbam who was highly  overwhelmed for witnessing such a great day, advised the daughter  to put God first in all her endeavours and to be guided by the legacies and moral principles that the family has been known and respected for, while encouraging the son-in-law, Mr. Uchechukwu Ori to always live in the fear of God and to love and care for his wife at all times.

The RMAFC Boss as one of the resource persons in Izhi land and Ebonyi State at large, seized the opportunity to express worry over the heightened insecurity of the country especially the recent massacre of Izhi people at Nwori Ndiobasi in Ado Local Government Area of Benue State, and called on relevant authorities to rise against such inhumane act and ensure that the perpetrators of that dastardly act are brought to book, while enjoining everybody to be security conscious.

Dr. Chinenye who is a medical doctor described her marriage with a soldiers as a perfect combination, and emphasized that her choice of the guy is because of his love for God and the love and care that he has for her as a lady, pointing out that love and happiness remains her priority. 

She promised to be humble, respectful, helpful, and resourceful at all times, and also advised her friends and fellow girls who are yet to find their own love to remain focused and prayerful as God would soon put smiles on their faces as has done to her today. 

In their goodwill messages, some of the persons who attended the event including the former Honourable member, Federal House of Representatives, Hon.

Mrs. Elizabeth Ogbaga, the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Chief Cletus Ofoke, the former Commissioner for Works, Engr. Paul Okorie, the former FADAMA Coordinator, Dr. Cletus Nwakpu and the former Chairman of Ezza South Local Government Area, Engr.

Aloysius Nwibo and the brother of the groom, Mr. Chidi Oreba, all in their adorned voices, thanked the Almighty God for establishing the new family, and prayed him to bless the marriage with children, wealth and prosperity while encouraging the new couple to be faithful to each other.
