Subair Enitan is attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the longest washing marathon.

Enitan, a student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, commenced the 50-hour wash-a-thon on Friday, November 24. She had notified the Guinness World Record of her intentions in June this year.

The 200-level Linguistics and African Languages student expressed optimism that she will finish strong as the title holder of the longest hand-washing hours.

While speaking before the commencement of the washathon, the 21-year-old expressed optimism saying:

“My background, the lessons life taught me have been motivating me to embark on this wash-a-thon. My experience is unexplainable but it taught me to be selfless. I am confident that I will reach the set goal of 50 hours of hand wash and by God’s grace, I will emerge victorious.

“Despite the massive support from my colleagues here, I pray for the grace of God to be able to complete the task. My parents are very supportive and I urge Nigerians to rally round me while I work towards completing the task,” she said.

The school management, represented by the Dean of Students Affairs, Professor John Odedire, said the institution is ready to give all it takes to ensure she clinches the record.

The president of the Student Union, Abbas Akinremi-Ojo, also stated that the needed support, including an ambulance and lighting, among other logistics, has been put in place to ensure she wins the challenge.
