Even though the Cedi is reported to have been the worst-performing currency on the African continent this year, some “fans” have taken to Twitter to speak highly of the currency in relation to its performance against the dollar and other major trading currencies in the world.
The sudden words of affirmation for the Cedi come after President Akufo-Addo warned the public against speculations about the local currency during his address to the nation on Sunday.
He said the speculations have contributed to the consistent depreciation in the value of the Cedi in recent times, partly because “sika mpɛ dede,” which means ‘money does not like noise,’ in Twi.
The President added that if one speaks ill of their money or currency, it will cause its value to slump.
Heeding the President’s advice, some Ghanaians on Twitter expressed their love and adoration for the cedi.
