The First Lady of Ekiti State, Olayemi Oyebanji, has sent words of encouragement to a student and chef, Adedamilola Adeparusi, who embarked on a quest to achieve 120-hour cook-a-thon.
Chef Dammy has spent 83 hours cooking in Oye, Ekiti, in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record, and the support for her has been on the rise despite criticism.
On her Twitter, the First Lady of Ekiti wrote: “The last 70 hours has been about Chef Dammy, a determined Ekiti undergraduate, who is making a bold attempt to break the Guinness World record for the longest cooking marathon.
“For me, it’s her courage and determination to stand for something positive, using her God-given talent to make a statement.
“Miss Damilola Adeparusi, surely has our love and support as she forges ahead to make this bold statement.
“I salute your courage Chef Dammy, for your decision to run your own race. Congratulations.”
