Gov Hyacinth Alia, on Monday, congratulated Benue-born Victor Tartenger, popularly known as Chef Naira Victor, on his successful completion of 135-hour cook-A-thon.

This is contained in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Sir Tersoo Kula, and made available to our correspondent in Makurdi.

NEWSVERGE reports that Chef Naira Victor embarked on the longest cooking marathon, codenamed: “Cook-A-Thon” on Feb. 27 and ended on March 3.

He implored the people of the state to imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship and unity, as shown to the chef.
