Lagos State to sell bag of rice for N13,000

The Lagos State Government on Thursday said it was ready to roll out Lake Rice on December 15 to residents at N13,000 per 50kg towards the Yuletide celebrations.



The Special Adviser on Food Security to Governor Akinwumi Ambode, Mr. Sanni Okanlawon, made the disclosure in Lagos during the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry National Agriculture Stakeholders Summit.

Okanlawon said that sales of the rice would be made at all the 57 Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas in the state to ensure proper distribution.

He said, “Lake Rice is the acronym of both Lagos and Kebbi States joint product which will be out to the public on December 15 at the rate of N13,000 per 50kg bag, as it is already subsidised by the government.

“To make it more available, the rice will be sold at the 57 LGAs and LCDAs for easy accessibility and to guard against unwanted persons diverting the product.

“The state government has put in place a committee that will ensure that Lagosians have the best Christmas celebration, that is why we are offering the wholesome and well packaged rice.”

The special adviser also said that the state had established a Department of Agribusiness, an Agriculture Trust Fund and Commodity Exchange Market to be set up soon.

The government’s efforts were in alignment with the Federal Government’s diversification drive from a mono-economy to agriculture.
