Nigerians angry after Lai Mohammed said Senegal makes best Jollof Rice
Some Nigerians on social media have lambasted Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed for saying Senegal makes best jollof rice.
For goodness sakes, how can this be? Was he dreaming?
The Minister was recently responding to a question from CNN’s Richard Quest.
Quest is presently in Nigeria for filming.
In a video gone viral, Mohammed was asked which country made the best jollof rice and his response was ‘so wrong’.
However, many Nigerians, particularly social media users went crazy over his comment.
They took to Twitter to drag the Minister to the mud.
Mohammed said the best jollof rice is made in fellow West African, country, Senegal.
I need to have a laugh, take a deep breath before I continue.
Lai Mohammed vs Nigerian, Senegal jollof rice
This comment though…that he needs to be fired for not seizing the chance to sell the country’s image.
