As promised, the Lagos State Government has commenced the sale of its ‘LAKE Rice’ at the price of N12,000 for 50kg and N6,000 for 25kg.

Last week, the Special Adviser on Food Security to Governor Akinwumi Ambode, Sanni Okanlawan, said that the rice sale which was earlier slated to begin from December 15 was postponed to this week to ensure plots to hijack the project was averted.

The state government had planned to sell the rice at N13,000 per 50kg bag at the 57 Local Government and Local Council Development area headquarters.

During the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry National Agriculture Stakeholders Summit, Okanlawon said that government was installing mechanisms for Lagosians to celebrate the best Yuletide without hiccups posed by money bags.

According to Okanlawan:

“We are working out the modalities to make sure that what the government intends to sell at N13,000 was not hijacked and sold to Lagosians at N15,000, that is what we do not want. From all indications, hopefully, by next week LAKE Rice will be out, so, we want everything to be in place before it is out.”
