Juliet Ibrahim, the popular Ghanaian actress, has cried out over the cost of living.
She decried the high cost of living in Ghana as she recounts how much she spends fueling her car weekly.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Ibrahim described Ghana as the “most expensive West African country right now.”
She stated that the amount she spent weekly on fuel was more expensive than what will be spent in the United States or Nigeria.
She 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 the 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.
“$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 it for a period of five to seven days?
“Let’s have this discussion and make it make sense to me.”
She further cleared the air that the post was not a political one.
Ibrahim said, “This is not a political post. Everyone’s affected, and talking about our concerns/worries only helps one stay sane. Thanks.
“I pray we all can survive this and double up our hustle. Because it 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.”
