Godswill Akpabio met with Hilda at the location, Amore Gardens, in Lekki, Lagos State, not long after she set the record.
He encouraged her and vowed to honor the 27-year-old resident of Akwa Ibom State.
“I was this morning accompanied by my colleagues Senators-elect, on a solidarity visit to an Akwa Ibom youngster, Hilda Baci, who is set to shatter the Guinness Book of Records as the Chef with the longest cooking duration in the world,” he posted on Twitter.
“I sincerely hope she succeeds, and I swear to honor her at the conclusion of the competition. I appreciate her showing the Akwa Ibom child’s can-do attitude. ALMOST ALWAYS FORWARD, BACKWARD NEVER.”
