Nigerian Student Set To Break World Record of Longest Speech Marathon
A 24-year-old Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) Alumnus, Christopher Olusa, is on his way to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Speech Marathon by an individual.
Olusa, who said he had obtained approval from Guinness World Records, disclosed that he is set to break Ananta Ram’s Guinness World Record for the longest speech marathon of 90 hours and 2 minutes.
Ananta Ram, a Nepali, is the current holder of the record after achieving the longest speech marathon of 90 hours and 2 minutes in Kathmandu, Nepal, from August 27 to 31, 2018.
Speaking with journalists in Akure, the Ondo State capital, the young graduate said he is attempting to set aside the record with a 120-hour (five-day) word-to-word speech.
The FUTA postgraduate student said, “The genesis of this remarkable endeavour was born from an unwavering commitment to inspire positive change in society.
“I had sought and got approval from GWR, and the event is scheduled for September 11–15, 2023, in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
“Dejavu Hotel, Akure, has been chosen as the venue for the momentous occasion and will be rounded off on the 11th of September, 2023.”
He has successfully made it through the third day (about 83 hours) and is still ongoing at the Dejavu Hotel in Akure. He is very close to breaking the current record and making a remarkable achievement for himself.
Olusa said that this Speech Marathon is an event that embodies the very essence of transformation and inspiration.
