Nigerians Blast Investigative Journalist After Calling Nigerian Local Rice ‘Dirty’

Nigerians has lambasted a Nigerian journalist known as Fisayo Soyombo over his comment on Twitter, condemning the poor quality of local rice produced in Nigeria.

Many Nigerians are after him on Twitter after condemning Nigeria local rice.

He posted:

Just because we closed our borders for a few weeks, see the kind of nonsense rice we’ve flooded our markets with. This one even felt like sandy soil the moment I turned it into water. Is this honestly the best we can do as a people? Who cursed us with mediocrity so wickedly?
