Jollof is made in Ghana. Nigerians can take their argument to wherever they want to take to not here in Ghana. They should start marketing their ‘3ba’ maybe.

The Ghana Tourism Authority has initiated a ‘Jollof Rice Festival,’ a strategy in their mission to help people patronise made-in-Ghana goods.

Ghana’s first edition of the Jollof Rice Festival is set to take place on Saturday, August 26 as part of the Ghana Tourism Authority's ‘See Ghana, Eat Ghana, Wear Ghana, Feel Ghana’ campaign.

Mr. Akwasi Agyeman who is the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority talked about the event at a press conference at the authority’s head office saying:

“Basically we want to settle the age old controversy of who has the best ‘jollof’ rice in West Africa. We believe it is Ghana and we are going to hold one of the biggest food festivals.

“Even though this is a ‘jollof’ competition, it will also help us showcase all the other food we have. Under the big umbrella, it is a food festival but we want ‘jollof’ to feature prominently.

“We are going to also leverage on some of the festivals that will be held in August. August is our eat Ghana month so Homowo is also ongoing. We will use that platform to project Ghanaian foods.”
