The 200-level student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife Osun state, Subair Enitan, has landed in the hospital after she completed 58 hours of hand wash-a-thon.

Enitan began the quest on Friday afternoon November 24, at the Student Union Building Motor park inside the University campus with thousands of students rallying around her.  She began the challenge to set a record for the longest hand cloth washing by an individual after applying to the Guinness World Record for the task last June.

Various students artist and University officials also paid solidarity visit to the task pavilion to cheer her to victory. She completed the 58 hours on Monday and was taken in the School Ambulance to the institution’s clinic for a medical check.  Enitan ended the marathon after 58 hours, surpassing her initial plan of 50 hours.

Speaking before heading to the clinic, Enitan said she was fulfilled to have completed the task right in front of her mother, Omogbolabo Afolake, who was at the venue for over two days.

“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
