Richard Quest Defends Lai Mohammed As Nigerians Attack Him Over Jollof Rice
It is expected that every Nigerian should be the ambassador of the country’s jollof rice but Lai Mohammed apparently has failed in this simple duty, many critics think.
The drama started yesterday during his chat with CNN’s Richard Quest. When asked which country he thinks prepares the best jollof rice, the Minister of Information and Culture opened his mouth and said, “Senegal”.
For many minutes, Nigerians were left in shock because, for many years, Nigerians have battled for the country’s honour, tenaciously insisting that they prepare the best jollof rice, and had run Ghana out of the picture for daring to challenge them.
Now, Nigerians are dragging the minister for filth on all social media platform, and we must tell you: it is absolutely messy!
See some of the reactions:

Richard Quest of CNN‘s Quest Means Business has cleared the air on one of the top trending topics on social media.
During Friday night’s show, Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed was asked “Which country makes the best Jollof rice,” and he responded with “I’ll have to say Senegal”.
Senegal?!” Quest said. “I hear a shock across the country, I hear a sigh across the country. Minister, thank you very much,” he added.
Quest has however said that the minister misheard. “He thought I asked, who first created jollof rice – hence his (correct) answer Senegal,” Quest wrote on Twitter.
However, prior to his Tweet, Twitter NG had dragged and is still dragging the minister following his statement.
