A man, Dauda Abdulfatai, has embarked on a 200-hour ironing marathon, aiming to surpass the Guinness World Record held by Gareth Sander of the UK for 100 hours
Dauda started the marathon on Wednesday morning at Off Ajaokuta Road, Ganaja Village, Lokoja, Kogi State after receiving a nod through the mail from the Guinness World Records.
He has completed 80 hours out of the proposed 200 hours for the marathon.
His goal is to break the existing record of 100 hours held by Gareth Sander of the United Kingdom.
Gareth Sanders, 28, a cleaning company manager, broke the world record for non-stop ironing after ironing around 2,000 items and going flat-out for nearly 100 hours in 2015.
Last year, Nigerian chef, Hilda Bassey, widely known as Hilda Baci set the record for the longest cooking marathon (individual), clocking an impressive time of 93 hours and 11 minutes. Punch
