A report reaching us from Uyo, Akwa Ibom, has it that a Nigerian teacher, John Obot, has broken the current 124-hour world records for the longest marathon reading aloud by an individual.

The Akwa Ibom state-born teacher broke the Guinness world record set by Isakov of Turkey and is now setting a new record of 145 hours of non-stop reading aloud.
The exercise that is ongoing in Uyoo, the Akwa Ibom state capital is expected to end at about 1 a.m. on Tuesday when Mr Obot would have completed his 145 hours reading aloud target.
