CHRISTMAS: Lagos To Begin Sale Of Rice At Low Price Next Week

The Lagos State Government on Friday said it could not commence the sale of its Lake Rice on December 15 as earlier planned to ensure that plots to hijack the project was averted.


The Special Adviser on Food Security to Governor Akinwumi Ambode, Mr. Sanni Okanlawan, said that the rice would now be on sale from next week

The government had planned to sell the rice at N13,000 per 50kg bag at the 57 Local Government and Local Council Development area headquarters from Dec. 15.

Okanlawon said the government was installing mechanisms for Lagosians to celebrate the best Yuletide without hiccups posed by money bags.

He said, “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.”
