Festus Keyamo (SAN), Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has come under fire for praising Hilda Baci, a now-famous chef who is attempting to break the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the longest cooking marathon.
Baci has been cooking for 83 hours and 59 minutes, breaking the record held by Lata Tondon, who was reported to have spent 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 seconds cooking in Rewa, India, in 2019.
Baci, an Akwa-Ibom native, has received public support from Nigerians who are cheering her on both online and in person.
Keyamo, who joined the chorus of support on Sunday night, praised Hilda’s determination, saying she was on the verge of history.
Dear Hilda Baci, this little note is to add to the voices of millions of others urging you on to break the Guinness Record for the World Longest Cooking Marathon.
You just have a few hours to go. Yes, you can achieve this, not only for yourself, but for millions of others who would be inspired by your bravery to take on this challenge.
I have learnt all my life that the difference between failure and success is a small gap that can be bridged by courage, determination and the will to take risks. You are on the cusp of history! Please, hang in there!
