Omotola also commended services at Ghana’s airport from immigration officials.

Omotola wrote: “So Economists, come and analyze oh… this amongst other things was quite alarming on my trip to Ghana. I changed N10,000 (Ten thousand Naira) and it was only worth 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! Ghana must go and they have gone, are they moving faster than us?

“I don’t want to talk about the airport, Tubaba has already talked about that but I forgot both my phones while signing the immigration cards, about 10mins later, it was announced to pick them up at guest services! Ha!”, Omotola wrote on her Instagram page.
