    Lake rice: Get 50 kg bag for N13, 000 in Lagos


    From Thursday, December 15, you can get to buy a 50kg bag of lake rice for N13,000 at the nearest local government area or council around you.
    Sanni Okanlawon, special adviser, food security to Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos, south-west Nigeria  dropped this cherry news at the LCCI national agriculture stakeholders summit held in Alausa.
    His words: Lake rice would be sold to Lagosians at the rate of  N13,000 per 50kg bag, and would be made at all the 57 local government areas and local council development areas  in the state to ensure proper distribution.
    He further stated that “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 subsidized by the government.
    “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.

    Lake rice is grown in Kebbi State but milled in Lagos. It’s roll out will come 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.
