Nigeria Vice Presidents says Nigerian Jollof Rice is the best!

Nigeria Vice President Yemi Osinbanjo, has debunked the statement made by the Minister of Information and Culture, Mr. Lai Muhammed recently at the CNN Richard Quest Means Business anchored in Lagos.

The VP said Nigeria makes the best Jollof Rice in Africa and beat down Ghanaians and the Senegalese hands down.

He made this remark at the Platform convened by Poju Oyemade, senior pastor of the Covenant Christian Centre, on the talk in ‘Nigeria Recovering from Economic Recession’.

Quoting him: “We all know that Nigerian jollof rice is the best! We beat the Ghanaians and the Senegalese hands down”.

Speaking on the economic recovery Osinbajo said, “We have everything, and our people are doing incredibly innovative things. For example, we are at the moment developing the most sophisticated animation technology in Africa,” he said.

“Our music and entertainment industry is the fastest growing in the world. Nigerians have won every prize in literature, from the Noble prize to the Pulitzer”.

“Only last year, a Nigerian girl won a gold medal at the Olympics, Morolake Akinosun”.

He continued: “Last Saturday, a Nigerian boxer won the world heavyweight title. Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua won the WBA becoming the boxing champion of the world.

“Last year Oluyinka Olutoye, a Nigerian surgeon successfully took out a baby from her mother’s womb, operated on the womb, and put the baby back in, and the baby was carried full term and was born naturally — a feat previously unheard of”.

Still on the Jollof Rice front, Nigerians in South Africa appeal to Nigerian restaurants to make quality Jollof Rice.

Most Nigerians in South Africa say the Jollof Rice they eat does not taste like the one they eat back home in Nigeria.9

“Jamiu Mate, a Nigerian mechanic in Johannesburg says: “The restaurants are after money. They dont cook the original Jollof”.
