Hello Lagos, LAKE Rice Is Back
The indigenous rice produced by Lagos and Kebbi states government may now be available all through the year.
The LAKE rice was known to be available for purchase only at festive periods, especially during Christmas.
Lagos State Commissioner for Agriculture, Mr Oluwatoyin Suarau, said the rice is now available at retail outlets, markets, supermarkets and stores across the state.
“It is in a bid to ensure availability of LAKE Rice product in every part of Lagos that the government sought the participation of major rice distributors, shopping malls and supermarkets in the distribution of the product.”
“The ultimate goal of the government is to stop importation of rice and ensure that only locally-produced rice is consumed by residents.
“The rice which is packaged in 50 kilogrammes, 25kg and 10kg bags is still being offered for sale to residents at N12,000, N6,000 and N2,500 respectively.
While reviewing distribution report of the product, Suarau added that various measures had been put in place to protect the price and avoid adulteration.
