Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, received a Nigerian, Bayode Treasures-Olawunmi who set a new Guinness World Record in longest reading marathon. 

Bayode, who was received by the Governor at Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja alongside top government officials, had set the new record under the Read Aloud project co-sponsored by Lagos State Government, Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB), Tagheuer, among others.
The new record was set at exactly 3:30 on Saturday at the YouRead Library in Yaba, Lagos State, after Bayode read for 120 hours non-stop over a period of five days to beat former record holder, Nepali Deepak Sharma, who read for 113 hours and 15 minutes in 2008.
Speaking to Government House Correspondents at the end of the meeting, Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr Obafela Bank-Olemoh said the State Government was delighted to host the new world record holder, and that the government is proud of the feat.
“The Governor met him (Bayode) to congratulate him and assured him that the whole of the State and the country is proud of his attempt to break the world record.
“All said and done, we are still waiting on the Guinness Book to get back to us to confirm and affirm the new record but regardless, what the Governor was trying to emphasize is the fact that his attempt was very commendable and it helps us to bring to the fore something we always talked about as a State to improve the reading culture, and the Governor is committed to supporting this in anyway,” Bank-Olemoh said.
Also speaking, Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr. Steve Ayorinde said the new world record was extra-ordinary and a different kind of endurance test with a lot of intellectualism, saying the development would spur a lot of Nigerian youths, students, pupils and adults to be interested in reading.
