Read-A-Thon: LASU student Osariemen attempts Guinness World Record

Student at the Lagos State University (LASU), Asein Patience Angel Osariemen, is set to embark on a 200-hour continuous reading aloud exercise tagged ‘Read-A-Thon’ in an official attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest reading aloud hour.

Osariemen’s official attempt to break the world record holds from February 23 to March 3 at the Edo State Library Complex Secretariat building, Sapele Road, in Benin City.

What sets her record attempt apart is not just her determination to set a new benchmark but also the profound educational purpose behind her choice of literature.

Throughout the marathon, she will immerse herself in a diverse selection of books, with a special focus on Nigeria and some of its states, such as Edo and Lagos.

Also, as a passionate advocate for global sustainability and a proud member of the LASU SDG Club, she is determined to utilise her platform to amplify awareness about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as she would be reading about SDGs 13 (Climate Change) and 14 (Lives Under Water).
