Great step in the right direction

I hope he has a B plan for his life as well

So we don't start reading stories like yesterday

A graduate with a distinction working as a bricklayer

This will keep happening in societies today until people understand the limitations of educations

If you don't have a B or C or even D plan for before, during and after school your Shii is Fvcked up bro!!

Imagine, Some graduates claim they are looking for job but don't even have a LinkedIn profile

Nor Send atleast 50 applications perday. Nothing good comes easy man!!

How can I just over emphasize this!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gosh!!


there is no limitation in knowledge acquisition and application, the limitation is in our system of government

My point there is that education is no automatic assurance of breakthrough

or a open sesame to success.

A Nigerian man identified as Treasure Olawunmi Bayode is on course to break the world reading marathon record.

The man took to twitter via his handle (@iread_bayode) and revealed that he is attempting to set a new Guinness world record for "The Longest Reading Marathon"

The young man who kicked-off his reading marathon at the You Read Library, Herbert Macaulay Way, Yaba in Lagos, said that he plans to read for 120 hours straight with only two hours break every 24 hours.

Bayode began the quest at about 1:30pm on Monday with reading from the book Carnivorous City by Toni Kan.

According to him



According to TheCable, Bayode on Wednesday, have already read for 48 hours.

he tweeted.

Sponsors of the event include Guaranty Trust Bank, Tagheuer, Lagos state government amongst others. At present, the longest marathon reading aloud record is 113 hours 15 minutes achieved by Deepak Sharma Bajagain (Nepal) at the Tudikhel Ground, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Bajagain’s book reading began on September 19 and ended on September 24, 2008.

With Bayode's quest to reach the 120 hour mark. He will not only hold the Guinness World record for the longest time reading, he might be on the path to hold the record for a very long time.

We wish him all the best

In working countries, there are students' loans not to even talk about scholarships. That shows you how much education is valued. Your plan B, C and D is simply because you're living in a country-like shithole. In societies where education works, education has no limitation.

At least, you're good in one thing: criticism. After all using all these adjectives and vile words, where do you belong to in all these? Or, you're just a bystander? The easiest thing to do is criticising.

People and funny ambitions
If someone somewhere had done it before, what is the point doing it?. (I personally have problem with imitation)

There is nothing worth imitating in this kind of feat, and his reasons for doing it are irrelevant, what reading culture? that we have library and so what? That education is the bedrock... Where is the connection?

I am not against him since it isn't morally damaging, but reading for 5 days straight has nothing to preach about education or development. Only him stand to gain or lose something.

Someone should educate me if I am wrong.

I think he said....limitation of and not limitation in....Education/Knowledge.

They are two totally different things.

Reading off smartphone screen is not the best way to read. It can give headaches.
Paper is always best.

I actually pity this generation. I don't think it is your fault. In our time, there was no smart phone and no computer. There was nothing to distract us. No social media, no phone. Just only you and yourself. No TV sef. At least till 5pm when NTA would start with Voltron. After that, nothing interesting to watch again.

We could read, 4, 5, 6hrs without distractions.
I can bet you are the type that checks his phone every 10mins. Always buying credit, always replying WhatsApp.

What you need is to ditch the phone and face the book you are reading. I know it is not easy. But start now before that phone overpowers you and becomes your master.

Spending too much time reading on the phone or computer will gradually lead to early deterioration in eyesight.
