Lagos to sell rice at N13,000 for Christmas

The Lagos State Government has said it would sell rice to residents at N13,000 per 50kg, beginning from December 15.

Okanlawon said the rice would be sold in all the 57 Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas.

He said:
“Lake Rice is the acronym of both Lagos and Kebbi States joint product, which will be out to the public on December 15 at the rate of N13,000 per 50kg bag, as it is already subsidised by the government,” he said.

“To make it more available, the rice will be sold at the 57 LGAs and LCDAs for easy accessibility and to guard against unwanted persons diverting the product.

“The state government has put in place a committee that will ensure that Lagosians have the best Christmas celebration, that is why we are offering the wholesome and well packaged rice”
