The Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, Mr Gregory Andrews has thumps up Ghana Jollof, a popular rice dish in West and Sub-Saharan Africa over that of Nigeria.

His comment was after he had eaten jollof rice he purchased from Dollar Rice located on Ghana’s finest and busy Osu Oxford Street in Accra.

Sharing his experience with the most sought after Ghanaian delicacy in a twitter post on Wednesday, April 21, sighted by, Mr Andrew wrote: “There is no way Nigerian #JollofRice could be better than the Ghanaian #Jollof which I bought for lunch today from Dollar Rice on Oxford Street in Osu. Tell me I’m wrong @AusHCAbuja. #JollofWars”.

The Australian High Commissioner, arguable the most loved and engaging diplomat Ghana has ever had shared the post with pictures of his jollof experience on the Oxford Street.
