In case you missed it, Wednesday was World Jollof Rice Day and as usual, the never-ending, unabated “jollof rice banter wars” between Ghana and Nigeria once again became a trending topic.

With Twitter users from both countries claiming to have the best recipe for the popular West African dish, the British High Commissioners for Ghana, Nigeria and Gambia also jumped into the conversation to share their sentiments as to which country has the best Jollof.

Take a look at their exchanges below:

First “attack” came from the High Commissioner to Ghana…

The High Commissioner to Nigeria replied countering his claim with a series of tweets…

The High Commissioner to the Gambia couldn’t let it slide…

As we all know, anytime a Jollof argument pops between Ghanaians and Nigerians, it’s almost always impossible to reach a consensus as this topic is purely subjective. Take me for instance, I’m Ghanaian and I can confidently say after tasting Nigerian Jollof that ours is definitely second to none (this just banter)!

Take a look at some of the reactions from their tweets below and share with us which country you think makes the best Jollof!
