Commenting on the post, Mr Benjamin wrote:  “I wasn’t actually aware that there was Nigerian #jollof, but why bother finding out when you have the superior version from #Ghana? In footballing terms, if you’re at the top of the #jollof Premier league, why worry about what’s going on down in #jollof League Two?”
