Former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar has joined millions of Nigerians in home and abroad to support renowned chess master, Tunde Onakoya, as he embarks on a mission to surpass the Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon at Times Square in New York.

Onakoya had on Wednesday announced the commencement of the marathon via his X account with the caption, “Game time.”

He also wrote, “We haven’t even started yet and Nigerians are already trooping into camp out with me.”

In a tweet via his X handle on Thursday, Atiku backed Onakoya to break new ground.

He wrote: “Dear @Tunde_OD, I join millions of Nigerians at home and abroad in wishing you the best in your quest to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Chess Marathon. Your can-do spirit thus far has been truly inspirational. I am rooting for you to break new ground. -AA.”

Also, on his part, Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu backed Onakoya to break the Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon.

He wrote on X, “Every grand victory starts with a single, bold move akin to a daring gambit—a bold move to redefine possibilities.

“@Tunde_OD; Lagos is rooting for you as you attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon at Times Square in the heart of New York.

“Taking the story of the phenomenal work you started in Lagos with young children to a global stage is a powerful testament to how greatness can emerge from anywhere.”
