11 months ago

The Lagos State Government will start rolling out Lake Rice for sale to Lagosians towards the Yuletide celebrations. The sale came as succour for millions of Lagosians who like their counterparts in most parts of the country have had to pay over N20,000 for a bag of rice, mostly imported.
The Lagos State Governor at the official unveiling of LAKE Rice today, stated that; “The focus of our government has been to make life easier for our people. With this in mind, we entered into a collaboration with Kebbi State. Also to ensure food security. Today we officially unveiled the first product of this collaboration – the Lake Rice.”
“Our aim is to deliver rice at reduced prices to Lagosians. Sales of Lake Rice will commence tomorrow in 15 centres across the State.”
The rice, however will be on sale as from the 22nd of December and will be sold at the 57 LGAs and LCDAs for easy accessibility and to guard against unwanted persons diverting the product.
