An Ebonyi State man, Engr. Celestine Onele, has said that he is all set to embark on a 120-hour marathon of clothes ironing to set a new Guiness World Record.

The current holder of the title, Mr. Garrick Sanders, who set the record in Bristol, the United Kingdom, in 2016, performed a 100-hour ironing marathon to obtain the title.

In a press conference held in Abakaliki, the state capital, Engr. Onele confirmed that the marathon ironing would commence on Monday, April 22, 2024, at the Real Exclusive Palace Bar.

“Even though I’m an engineer, I love being inspired to do different things, to put my name on the map. At a point, I said, Let me try to put my name in the Guiness book of records.

“After rigorous research, sometimes last year I finally submitted my application to Guinness World, and we all know that the application takes a whole lot of processes.

“By the grace of God, after 18 weeks of waiting, I got a message that my attempt to break the Guiness World Record has been approved,” Onele confirmed.

Engr. Onele is going to be ironing T-shirts, Polos, Pillow Cases, and handkerchiefs. He called on the members of the public to support him by bringing clothes for ironing to the venue, as well as appealing to well-spirited individuals to support him morally and financially.
