The 200-level student of Linguistics and African Languages commenced a 50-hour hand wash-a-thon on Friday, November 24 aiming at breaking the World Record.

Enitan aims to set a record for the longest hand-washing of clothes by an individual.

She began the quest at the Student Union Building Motor park inside the University campus with thousands of students rallying around her.

Various students and officials also paid solidarity visits to the venue to cheer her on.

She completed 58 hours around midnight on Monday from where she was taken in the school ambulance to the institution’s clinic for a medical check.

“I am very fulfilled to have completed the task right in front of my mum, friends and colleagues who thronged this venue to show love and support my ambition,” she said.
