Beautiful Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, has said that the Ghana Cedi has more value than the currency of her country, Nigeria. The veteran actress was in Ghana over the weekend for the All Africa Music Awards 2018.
This among other things was some of her nice experiences in Ghana. Omotola noted that our Ghanaian Cedis has more weight than their Naira. Narrating her experience, the screen icon said she changed 10,000 Naira upon getting to Ghana and all they gave her was GHC120.
That’s to mean that the cedis possess more value than the Naira because to her, the Cedis didn’t even last before it varnished from her hands.
Speaking further, the actress talked about Ghana’s newly built Kotoka International Airport, Terminal 3.She narrated that she forgot her two phones while signing immigration cards.
To her surprise announcement was made and she was made to pick up the phone at guest services. To her if it were to be at a Nigerian airport, that would mean her phones would be lost forever.

“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?
