Ace Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, is praising Ghana citing that the country seems to be developing faster than Nigeria.

The actress made the observation during her trip to Ghana for the 2018 Edition of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) which was held at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) on Saturday, November 24.

Making reference to the history of Nigeria sending Ghanaians back to Ghana in the 1980s, which was referred to as “Ghana Must Go,” Omotola noted that Ghana has truly left her country behind.

She sighted Ghana’s new Terminal 3 at the Kotoka International Airport and the cedi’s strength against the Nigerian naira as clear indications that the country is doing better than Nigeria.

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?
