AMAZING: Sarah Nwakohwu Wuche Celebrates 137 Years Birthday, Nigerian Woman  Would Be The Oldest In the world

Sarah Nwakohwu Wuche, born in 1883 in Nigeria

If she is not yet officially recognized as the oldest woman on planet Earth, Sarah Nwakohwu Wuche, born in 1883 in Nigeria, could soon enter the Guinness Book of Records. She is now 137 years old, 15 years older than Jeanne Calment (122). The Frenchwoman previously held the record for longevity among women.

Since July 22, 2018, the date of Chiyo Miyako’s death, the dean of humanity is the Japanese Kane Tanaka, born on January 2, 1903, and aged 117 years. The proven longevity record for women is currently held by Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who lived until the age of 122.

On the other hand, a new discovery on the African continent, the cradle of humanity, could completely upset this record of Jeanne Calment’s longevity. Indeed, Sarah Nwakohwu Wuche, born in 1883 in Nigeria and who lives in Obio Akpor LGA of Rivers State, would be 137 years old today.

It remains to be seen whether her birth certificate is authentic. And even if she doesn’t have one, scientists should investigate her case to determine her exact age and award her the trophy for the world’s oldest woman whom she claims.
