Also, the Falling oil prices increased pressure on Nigeria to depreciate Naira, as a reduction in export earnings which depletes foreign exchange reserves, limiting the central bank's ability to support the currency.
After Ghana gained her independence, Ghana separated from the British West African pound, which was the currency of the British colonies in the region.
The first independent currency of the new republic was the Ghanaian pound (1958-1965). In 1965, Ghana decided to leave the British colonial monetary system and adopt the widespread decimal system. The African name Cedi (1965-1967) was introduced in place of the old British pound system.
Now, Ghana decided to revaluate its Currency by removing some zero digit on its Currency thereby making the Currency more higher when converted to Nigerian Currency.
See the Currency conversations of Ghana to Nigeria, Ghana to Dollar and Dollar to Naira below:

GHS 100 - 6756 NGN
