Omotola Praises Ghana’s Economy But Social Media Is Not Having It And Jumps On Her Neck – SCREENSHOTS

2 min


Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has sparked quite a controversy on social media after showering some praise on Ghana’s economy, especially praising the strength of our currency against the Nigerian naira.

Omotola was in Ghana for the recently held Afrima Awards night and whilst here, she made a couple of observations.

She posted on social media that whilst in Ghana she changed N10,000 and all she could get was Ghc 120. To her that showed how well Ghana’s economy is doing, and she praised other things such as the Kotoka International Airport.

But her comments have not sat well with social media users, both Ghanaians and Nigerians alike.

She has been roasted pretty well for her comments, with many people pointing out that the N10,000 has more spending power in Nigeria than the Ghc 120 does here.

Okay… So Economists , come and analyze oh… this Amongst other things was quite alarming on my trip to Ghana. Hmm… I changed N10,000 (Ten thousand Naira) and it was only worth ….. C120 ( One hundred and twenty cedis) Not C1,200 and certainly not 12,000 cedis but a mere 120 cedis!!! 1 dollar in ghana is 4.8 cedis ! #Ghanamustgo and they have Gone, are they moving faster than us? I don’t want to talk about the airport , Tubaba has already talked about that but I forgot both my phones while signing the immigration cards, about 10mins later, it was announced to pick them up at guest services! Ha! #GiantofAfrica ? #Getbusy #Getbusy #Getbusy 😓😓😓. Abi? I’m I missing something?
