Hassan Joshua Bature, a computer science lecturer at the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), has announced plans to embark on 150-hour teaching marathon. 


The Nigerian scholar is attempting to break the Guinness World Records (GWR) for longest lecture marathon.

The current record holder is Arvind Mishra from India, who lectured for 139 hours and 42 minutes at the Graphic Era University in 2014.

He taught scientific computation.


Speaking with TheCable Lifestyle on Thursday, Bature said the initiative was motivated by his passion for teaching.

“Yes. The plan is on. Of course yeah, I’m a lecturer already. I have teaching experience. I have a decade of experience and three years in lecturing. And I’m very passionate about my job,” he said.

“I have taught several topics, I’m really working on my slides, different topics in computer science and ICT generally. And application of ICT in other fields, agriculture and in so many other areas like that.


“We are working with my team. We are meeting with some professors.

“It’s a physical class. But we will have our dynamic students. We won’t have static students.

“Students will be going and coming. We are doing it in the university. We are having a meeting with the VC today. So it will be streaming live.”

As of the time of this report, Bature is yet to announce when the lecture marathon will commence.


The development comes on the heels of Hilda Baci’s recent feat as the record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual in the world.
