“Ghana is officially the most expensive West African country” – Ghanaian Actress, Juliet Ibrahim laments over high cost of living


Popular Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim has taken to her social media page to lament over high cost of living in Ghana.

According to her, Ghana is currently the most expensive country to live in West Africa as the cost of petrol is outrageously high.

Juliet tweeted,

“Ghana is officially the most expensive West African country right now! No joke!

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.”

Meanwhile, some Nigerians however tackled her for saying Ghana is the most expensive country in West Africa as their country folks are also affected by the economic recession.

While reacting to the comments, Juliet insisted that Ghanaians are affected the most.

She wrote,

“$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 oo…

I pray we all can survive this and double up our hustle oo. Because looks like things aren’t going to go back to normal. This is the time to strategize and focus on multiple streams of income…

We need to double our hustle very well… God help us all as we adjust to the new standards of living. 🙏💪 #adulthoodnascam 😢🤦‍♀️”
