Former presidential candidate Peter Obi showed his support for Nigerian chef Grace Nwaokobia, who recently broke the Guinness World Record for the longest home kitchen cooking marathon. The marathon, which began on Friday, saw Chef Grace cook for an astonishing 86 hours, surpassing the previous record of 68 hours and 30 minutes.

Obi attended the event to celebrate Chef Grace’s remarkable achievement. He praised her dedication and spoke on the importance of creating a supportive environment in Nigeria that empowers young people to realize their entrepreneurial potential.

 

“In line with my commitment to encouraging our young people towards entrepreneurship and expertise, I showed up this morning to cheer on Chef Grace Nwaokobia as she made us proud by breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest home kitchen cooking marathon by an individual,” Obi shared on social media platform X.

He continued, “The old record stood at 68 hours and 30 minutes. By the time I arrived at about 6:40 am, she had already broken the record and extended it to 86 hours and counting.”

 

A significant portion of the meals prepared during the marathon was donated to charity, including The Little Saints Orphanage in Ilupeju. Obi commended Chef Grace’s charitable efforts, noting that her dedication to charity is a vital aspect of her achievement.

 

“Interestingly, the food cooked has largely gone to charity. I gathered that on Saturday, the food made was supplied to The Little Saints Orphanage in Ilupeju, in line with Chef Grace’s dedication to charity,” Obi noted.

 

He concluded by emphasizing the need for a supportive environment for young entrepreneurs in Nigeria. “Let’s create a supportive environment in Nigeria that empowers young people to be productive, unlocking their entrepreneurial potential. By doing so, we can build a new Nigeria which is now very possible,” Obi added.
