Ace Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, was in Ghana for the just ended All Africa Music Awards 2018 (AFRIMA) and her outlook of the country has got her wondering if it was necessary for her country folks to have sent Ghanaians away from their country in the ’80s.
Her remarks stemmed from the incredible sight that greeted her when she landed at the Kotoka International Airport.
According to the Nigerian screen goddess, she even more stunned after she realized how Ghana’s local currency (cedi) valued more than Nigeria’s Naira.
Recounting her experience in a post on her Instagram page she said, ” 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! ”
She was even more amazed at how the Kotoka International Airport has been renovated to an ultramodern facility.
Recounting the feats Ghana has achieved over the years, she questioned if it was even worth turning Ghanaians away from her country in the first place.
” #Ghanamustgo and they have Gone, are they moving faster than us?” a portion of her post read.

“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? ”
