The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has sparked another uproar on social media.
The information minister was said to have reacted to the buzz CNN’s Richard Quest started about who makes the best Jollof.
The battle for Jollof supremacy between Ghana and Nigeria have lasted for a long time, and the information minister has obviously broken the heart of many Nigerians by giving the ‘Jollof trophy’ to complete outsiders, Senegal.
According to Lai’s response to Quest, “Senegal makes the best jollof“.
