Zachariah Ibrahim, a scrap dealer based in Ashaiman, has arrived in Tamale, the Northern Regional Capital, after riding over 600km in support of Abdul-Razak Failatu, who aims to break the longest cooking record.

Mr. Ibrahim departed from Ashaiman on Saturday, January 7, 2024, and arrived in Tamale yesterday, Tuesday, January 9, 2024. Mr. Ibrahim is of northern descent, hailing from Zabzugu.

Speaking to Mark Smith in Tamale, the cyclist explained that the original idea was to ride through Hohoe, but he had to change the route after encountering several flat tires. He then chose the Dambai route for a smoother experience.

Mr. Ibrahim continued to explain that, realizing he might be behind time, he began taking rests later into the night, around 10 or 11 pm. Additionally, he had to leave his rest point around 4 am.

Yesterday, Mr. Ibrahim indicated that he covered over 200 kilometers. He explained that he was motivated to ride the distance after realizing Chef Faila’s endurance and positive attitude towards breaking the longest cooking record.

It would be recalled that James Kumbeni, a cyclist, rode a bicycle 170 kilometers from Bolgatanga, the Upper East Regional capital, to the Northern Regional capital, Tamale.

When he spoke to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith, Mr. Kumbeni explained that his love for Chef Faila’s endurance has continued to grow watching her cook over the past few days, adding that he rode “to support our sister. She has brought pride to Ghana. She needs our support.”

Mr. Kumbeni is a cyclist who “usually bikes around Bolga. But I have been to Nalerigu, Tamale, Walewale, Navrongo, Sandema, Paga, and Accra.”

James Kumbeni is Baare but lives and works in Bolga. He teaches at Desert Pastures International School in Bolga and is inspired by the fun in cycling.

Meanwhile, the Modern City Hotel in Tamale may yet receive the biggest patronage today as Abdul-Razak Failatu, popularly known as Chef Faila, brings her cooking marathon to an end.

Chef Failatu Abdul-Razak is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon. During the course of her attempt, she has been cheered on and widely celebrated across the country, receiving massive donations and well-wishes from Ghanaians, including a donation of Ghc30,000 from the Vice-president, Mahamudu Bawumia.

Chef Fails prepared traditional Ghanaian meals, blending them favorably with some continental dishes. Before the commencement of her attempt, she stated in a media engagement that the task was a national assignment on behalf of Ghana and its citizens, stressing that, “If I fail, believe me, I have put our president, Ghanaians, people who have supported (and) groomed me, my family, and friends to shame.”

Abdul-Razak’s attempt to break the world record for a cookathon of 119 hours and 57 minutes held by the Irish chef Alan Fisher is widely celebrated in Ghana.

As she brings her attempt to an official close at 10 a.m. later today, it is expected that the Modern City Hotel will be flooded with guests who would like to catch one final glimpse of the celebrated chef.

More soon.
