Miss Subair Enitan, a 200 level student in the Department of Linguistics and African Languages at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, began a 50-hour hand wash-a-thon aiming to break the Guinness World Record (GWR) on Friday, November 24.

The Guinness World Record fixed November 24, 2023 for the attempt of wash-a-thon in Ile-Ife after she notified them of her intention in June 2023.

Before she officially start washing cloths, Enitan had boasted that she would finish strong as title holder of longest hand washing hours after completing 50 hours on Sunday.

She said: “My background motivated me to embark on this wash-a-thon and the lessons life has taught me. The 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. I will end this wash-a-thon on Sunday. I am setting the record, I can’t lose because nobody has done it before, so if I do it for 5 minutes, I have set the record. My parents are very supportive, I urge Nigerians to rally round me while I do the washing for 50 hours.”

The Student Union president, Abbas Akinremi-Ojo disclosed that needed supports including provision of ambulance, lighting, water among other logistics have been put in place to ensure she win the challenge.

The management of OAU through the Dean, Students Affairs, Professor John Odedire said school is ready to give all what it takes to ensure that she clinch the record.
