In contrast to the statement made by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed that the Senegalese make the best jollof rice on the continent, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria’s Vice-President described Nigerian jollof rice as “the best in the world”.
The Vice President disclosed this at “The Platform Nigeria,” a Global Media live broadcast on Channels TV convened by Poju Oyemade, Senior Pastor of the Covenant Christian Centre, in Lagos.
Osinbajo said:“And by the way, we all know that Nigerian jollof rice is the best, we beat the Ghanaians and the Senegalese hands down.
“We have everything, and our people are doing incredibly innovative things.
“Our music and entertainment industry is the fastest growing in the world,and of course, nobody is as funny as Nigerians, whether professional or amateur,”he noted.
