Ooni of Ife’s congratulatory message to Hilda Baci gets tongues wagging
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, recently congratulated Hilda Baci for her remarkable achievement as the longest-cooking chef, surpassing 100 hours.
In a gesture of support, the Ife monarch shared a photograph of the talented chef from Akwa Ibom and commended her resilient spirit, strength, and culinary expertise as a woman.
The Ooni conveyed his appreciation to Hilda Baci for setting a significant milestone, and inspiring girls from all communities to demonstrate their capabilities for excellence.
“Today, like millions of Nigerians, I’m intrigued by @hildabaci resilient spirit, who exemplified the toughness but special grace that our women possess. What she demonstrated to our nation and every young person out there isn’t the glitz or reward system of breaking the Guinness World Record for “longest cooking time,” but the inexhaustible perseverance that every woman possesses.
Every little girl in all our communities and local governments, like Hilda Bassey Effiong, deserves a chance to show the world her capacity to wrap us in her spirit of excellence. She has the ability to influence us, to break new grounds in the most complex environments, and to substantially contribute to our nation’s economic prosperity.
As a nation built upon family values, we must continue to recognise the significant contributions made by women throughout our country’s history. Their words and actions are cornerstones of our existence.
