Lagos And Kebbi States Launch Lake Rice In Lagos, to sell for as low as N2,500

Lagos State Governor, Ambode and his Kebbi State counterpart, Bagudu on Wednesday launched the Lagos-Kebbi Rice christened LAKE RICE.

Speaking at the launching ceremony held at Lagos House in Ikeja, Governor Ambode said: “In March 2016, we signed an MOU with an understanding that we, being proudly Nigeria, we want to come out with what is made in Nigeria and what is good in Nigeria.

We took all that Pres. Buhari said that we need to grow our food and we decided that we will prove a point and that is what today is all about. LAKE RICE is of good quality.

The major difference between LAKE RICE and the ones imported is that the imported has a minimum storage of five to six years storage life span, but LAKE RICE is fresh.”

While the 50kg will sell for N12, 000, 25kg would go for N6, 000 and 10kg for N2, 500, and for now, an individual would only be allowed to purchase a bag to enable it go round.

Gov. Ambode also commended Pres. Buhari for supporting the collaboration between Lagos and Kebbi, just as he disclosed that the FG has donated two rice mills to the State Government to increase production of rice next year.

Also speaking, Governor Bagudu, said while Kebbi State has comparative advantage in area of rice production, Lagos boasts of the largest consumption market, saying that the LAKE RICE can stand any integrity test in Nigeria.
