“I want to give people hope, especially single mothers because many people don’t think we have anything to offer”, she said.

The nail technician has been working professionally for almost three years and says she also wants to put women from northern Nigeria in the spotlight.

Ms Dachor says she also hopes her record attempt will put Plateau, her home state, on the map.

Plateau is where Nigeria’s mainly Muslim north meets the largely Christian south and many communities are mixed.

The region has battled decades of insecurity and conflict between different ethnic and religious groups, which has seen thousands killed.

“People judge the Plateau by the cover. Apart from the ethnic issues we have, Plateau is a beautiful place. I got support from all ethnic groups while I embarked on this attempt,” she said.
