Mary Njoku shares her thoughts on the transformations happening in Nigeria


Nollywood actress and filmmaker Mary Njoku, who is currently studying abroad, inquired about the current state of affairs in Nigeria.

She said that it had only been a few weeks since she left the country, but there have already been numerous developments, such as a new National anthem, closure of local airports, power Grid shutdown, and more.

She asked if there were any other updates she should be informed about and urged Nigerians not to shut her out because she missed her home country.

“How’s Naija fam?
I left for weeks, una don shut down local airport, off power grid, everybody dey vex, una even change National anthem.
Any other news I should be aware of?
Any news? I am doing a ‘Japada’ o! Hope say una never close gate for Nigeria? I miss home”.

The Organized Labour initiated a strike to advocate for an increase in the minimum wage for workers.

While the Organized Labour suggests N494,000 as the new minimum wage, the Nigerian government insists on paying N60,000.

Mary Njoku is among the few celebrities who have openly expressed their concerns about the hardships in the country during President Tinubu’s tenure.

During the holiday season, Mary Njoku voiced her distress about the difficult economic situation in the country.

She shared that she spent N100k at the supermarket but her shopping cart was still not full.

Mary expressed her astonishment at the high level of poverty in Nigeria and questioned what the minimum wage is.

She also expressed her frustration after paying 664 naira at the toll gate.

Mary highlighted how it now takes more than the minimum monthly wage to fill up a car’s gas tank and questioned if she was being overcharged.

Furthermore, Njoku commented on the difference between the value of the dollar and the naira.

As the founder of ROK Studios, she expressed her concern about the current dollar exchange rate and asked Nigerians how they are managing to survive in such a challenging economy.
