Well, there’s a photo trending on social media that sees this same corn cobs we see as ‘useless’ been sold at ‘$8.99’ in a shopping mall.
$8.99 is like GHC52 when converted to Ghanaian cedis and that can afford at least 3 bowls of corn in the market.
Social media users are wondering what these corn cobs are used for because of how ‘high’ they have been priced.
