Former UK High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, has waded in the debate over which country makes the best jollof rice.

The outspoken UK Diplomat took to Twitter to declare that jollof from Ghana tastes better than that from Nigeria.

Comparing it to football, Jon Benjamin described Ghana jollof as the Champions League, while rating Nigeria jollof as League One.

“Why are #GhanavrsNaija #Ghanavsnigeria trending? It can’t be about jollof rice because GH #UCL-level jollof versus plain League One jollof just wouldn’t be fair,” he tweeted.

Jollof rice is a common dish in Western Africa, especially in countries like Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Togo, Liberia, Niger, Mali, Ivory Coast and Cameroon.

However, there has been a longstanding rivalry between Ghana and Nigeria over which country makes the best jollof.
