Actress Juliet Ibrahim has decried the high cost of life in Ghana, claiming that it is more expensive than in Nigeria.
Juliet compared the costs of life in Ghana to those in Nigeria, owing to Ghana’s current spike in fuel prices.
On Tuesday, she asked on Twitter if anyone in Nigeria spends 72,000 Naira (GH1400), or 72,000 Naira each week, on fuel.
She said that her monthly fuel spending was higher than that of the United States, and that Ghana is currently the “most expensive West African country.”
She wrote, “Ghana is officially the most expensive West African country right now! No joke.
“$100 = 1400 cedis.
“1400 cedis = 72,000 Naira.
“Is there any Nigerian on my timeline that spends 72,000 Naira to fuel his car and use for a period of 5-7 days?.
“Let’s have this discussion and make it make sense to me o.
“Someone driving a car of 3.0 / 3.5 fills their fuel tank to use within 5-7 days with fuel worth 1300/1400 cedis.
“Currently, $100 = 1,400 cedis.
“Even in USA, to fuel the same type of car can and will NEVER cost that much!.
“Yet we are all going through the same economic crisis.”
She clarified further that the aim of her post was not political, “This is not a political post.
” Everyone is impacted, and sharing our worries and concerns only keeps one sane. Thanks,
“I hope that we can all get through this and work even harder. because it appears like nothing will return to normal. Now is the time
“to plan and concentrate on numerous sources of income.
“We need to double our hustle very well. God help us all as we adjust to the new standards of living,”, she concluded.
Ghana is officially the most expensive West African country right now! No joke!
