“Nigerian Naira Is Useless, Shame On Our Leaders” – Omotola Jalade Laments As 10,000 Naira Worth 120 Ghana Cedis

Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has taken a swipe at Nigerian leaders over the state of the nation’s economy.

The 40-year-old mother of 4, in a post on her Instagram page during a visit to Ghana, decried the exchange rate of Naira to the Ghanaian Cedi, questioning the rate of economic growth in Nigeria vis-a-vis Ghana.

She also commended services at Ghana’s airport from immigration officials.

Omotola wrote:

“So Economists, come and analyze oh… this amongst other things was quite alarming on my trip to Ghana. 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! Ghana must go 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!”

Tuface had in a viral video slammed Nigerian leaders as he landed in Accra, Ghana for a visit.

In the video at Kotoka airport, Tuface, who was impressed by the look of the airport, said,

“You dey see levels for here, shame no dey catch some people for the other side?”

  1. no be only Ghana,kenya and rwanda is doing great as well.u guys are part of the problem,the youths(which the aso rock dullard)called lazy and nollywood and musicians who frolick with politicians and sing praises during campaign trail.rawlings laid a good foundation which we expected during obasanjos second coming after being released in prison(post abacha era)its a shame all we do is to tweet in our bathrooms,flaunt latest jeweries and luxurious cars.country rise though human resources and capital projects,investments.nollywood failed as well,bollywood still hold the ace and striving hard to challenge hollywood.omotola,u are part of it as well but glad una eyes don de open small small.

    • Great Iron God bless you for this inspiring response of your, we all should check our self, most especially our Religion heads and musicians according praises to our politicians.

  2. True talk, Mr Iron Bar, you knack the problem proper. But what about the people that keep on saying don’t blame the Government? Do they really understand economics and don’t they know that today’s Ghana was the hardwork of their Government? Nigerians are hardworking people, but our leaders are awfully poor intellectually. Chinese economy is second to America today because the Government in the mid 70’s started getting involve in everything and also enforcing the law very strictly, but ours,due to selfishness, religious nonsense and ethnic foolishness we degenerate into buckets of jokes among nations. Look at Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia they do not have oil, but folks, they are well organized countries and their Governments are taking credit for that.

  3. What Ghana did was re-denomination of the Cedi by making every ten thousand cedi to be one new Ghana cedi to stem inflation. Good idea though but does not make Cedi realistically stronger than Naira but technically stronger.

    Do you know what it will make Naira looks like if we do same in Nigeria? i.e Every N10,000 is new 1 Naira note

    • Whether tecnically or realistically or whatevercally, their currency is better and stronger for them and so is their economy. Can you dare compare their economy with that of Nigeria? Why are Nigerians running to Ghana?

  4. nigeria will get better when you enforce sharia law on your politicians. If they steal, sharia law says to caught off their hand. This is why they hate the law but they are so hypocritical by enforcing the law on the weak. Look at china and iran. They execute looters straight up. No playing. As much as i like former president Yar’Adua, i dislike the fact that he invented the so called amnesty for corrupt politicians. That nonsense needs to be scrapped by Buhari the moment he became president and it is not too late.

    Start cutting off hands of politicians now.

    Start sending them to long term prison

    they will sit tight the moment you make example of one of them.

    • So how many of the northern governors in whose states sharia is being inflicted on their poor ones have been judged by sharia law? Sharia law is a law for the poor and not for the rich otherwise why hasnt sharia law visited its wrath on Muhammad Bin Salman for the murder of Khasshogi? Is it sharia law that is used in China that made them so developed? Let us call a spade a spade and not a digging material. Nigeria became doomed the moment we gave corrupt people a voice and will continue to get worse unless we deal with them ourselves. Dont you see European countries lynching corrupt officials, throwing them in garbage bins? Leave religion out of the solution, all these thieving politicians are more religious than Satan himself

  5. Everyone that has commented so far including Omotola is an educated ********… Cedis is not better than Naira. Go read up Purchasing Power Parity and U will thank me later… Wetin 10K naira go buy in Nigeria, u go need almost 250 Cedis to buy the same thing in Ghana and 250 Cedis is more than 20K naira. Our Naira is not that bad, but it can always get better. Safe!

    • Alaye, you need to watch your pomposity, what the heck? I don’t know your academic parameters, but your linguistic recklessness in the first sentence is an indication that you are unwittingly smart. Don’t be a ninny hammer and grow out of your village mentality. Damn! Who let loose this *****?

  6. Attention my fellow Nigerians,if you have anybody residing in Indonesia,tell him to pack and go back home,the level of corruption in Indonesia is too much either you are valid or not,you must pay Immigration right from the port of Entry.Please a lot of Nigerians are in immigration detention with Valid documents before they arrested them,but most of them told them that they are going back home but they refused and insisted they must pay before they can be released,Enough is Enough this country is super corrupt

  7. madam pancake all the time…… the merely shows that u didnt know anything other than this fashionista without brain. for ur information 1,000 Naira is equivalent to 10 Cedis as at the time i went to Ghana. so if u changed 10,000 Naira to 120 Cedis simply means u ave changed 10,000 Naira to 12,000 Naira which means Ghana economy is also having problem. if u ave taken time to relate with the Ghanians themselves and u ask them how much is 120cedis….. they will be calling it 120 million………mind u we are talking about a country with average population of 22-25 million, which is not more than lagos and Ogun state. However, nigeria economy can only get better
