President Muhammadu Buhari has shared the joy of celebrations as 27-year-old gourmet chef, Hilda Bassey Effiong, a.k.a Hilda Baci, made history by breaking the world record of longest hours of cooking, finding her way into the Guinness Book of Records, and placing Nigeria on the global spotlight.

President Buhari in a statement by Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Monday, lauded the young culinary expert for turning her talent and passion into a career, with a rippling effect on the economy as she runs a restaurant in Lagos, and trains other talents on entrepreneurship, and now leads the world in resilience, perseverance, and consistency in cooking.

The President noted the antecedents of the restaurateur, who dazzled at the Jollof Face-off Competition, 2021, preparing mouth-watering dishes that won the choice prize, and settled an age-long rivalry with Ghana on which African country should own the trademark for cooking better jollof- rice.

President Buhari wished Hilda Baci more grace for a prosperous career.
