Juliet Ibrahim, the actress, has expressed concerns about the high cost of living in Ghana.


In a barrage of tweets on Tuesday, the movie star said Ghana has become the “most expensive West African country.”

Juliet said what she spends weekly on fuel (N72,000) for her car was higher than what she would spend in the United States or Nigeria.

“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,” she wrote.


“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.”


The film star also said her commentary about the situation “was not a political one”.

“This is not a political post. Everyone’s affected, and talking about our concerns/worries only helps us stay sane. Thanks,” Juliet said.

“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.”
