Rice is arguably the most consumed food at yuletide.

The Lagos State Government seems to be aware of this assumption and has assured residents of the availability of LAKE Rice during the Christmas and New Year festive periods.

The Commissioner for Agriculture, Oluwatoyin Suarau, said the home-grown rice had been available for purchase since Saturday, December 22, 2018, in all approved designated sales centres, outlets and shops across the state.

Locations where LAKE Rice can be purchased, Suarau said, include: Agricultural Development Authority, Oko Oba, Agege and Lagos Television Complex, Agidingbi, Ikeja.

“The ultimate goal of the state government on production and marketing of LAKE Rice is to stop importation of rice and ensure that only locally-produced rice is consumed by residents,” a statement on Sunday quoted Suarau to have said.
