Veteran Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has made a stunning statement as she rated Ghana above her own country.
Omotola was in Ghana for the 2018 All Africa Music Awards 2018 which came off last Saturday, November 24, at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Omotola had some nice experiences in Ghana and it appears she wish to be a Ghanaian.
After the award ceremony, Omotola took to her Instragram page to narrate the nice experiences she had in Ghana.
In rating Ghana’s economy said she changed 10,000 Naira upon getting to Ghana and all they gave her was GHC120.
Touching on aviation, she spoke well about Ghana’s newly built Kotoka International Airport, Terminal 3.
She disclosed that she forgot her two phones while filling immigration cards.
To her surprise announcement was made and she was made to pick up the phone at guest services.
Omotola statement means that, if it were to be at a Nigerian airport, that would mean her phones are lost and lost forever.
The actress’ statement drew lots of reactions from users as many side with her while others didn’t.
@moradeyoabimbola disagrees with Omotola: “My one room with personal bathroom and NO KITCHEN OR LIVING ROOM goes for 300k per year. Money way i go use collect better bedroom flat for lagos. Ghana hard pass nigeria no be for eye. I am a student in ghana and i can tell you that the expenses of a student life is equals to a family life in nigeria. DON’T BE FOOLED.”
@makashecassidy also commented: “I am a nigerian but I currently live in Ghana in terms of value the naira has a higher value than cedis cause the 120 cedis can be spent in a week without u seeing the usefulness of the money now talking about the exchange rate yes #10000 is 120 cedis because the ghanian government devalued their currency formerly before the devaluation #10000 was 12 million Ghana cedis so that is the logic, the naira is still higher than the Ghana cedis when u live in Ghana for 6 months you will understand what am talking about.”
@uncommoncommodity defended Omotola’s statement: “@realomosexyI tell u Ghanaians don't feel proud living here in Germany too anymore cos things are really getting better back in their country.”
@burnatwist also wrote: “Life here in Ghana is expensive..That be why many nigerians dey Ghana dey work for money.”
There were many other comments from social media users who were in support of Omotola's statement.
