Governor Ambode Flags Off Rice Sales Tomorrow.

As the Christmas celebration draws close, the Lagos state government yesterday said it will commence the sales of the much awaited Lake Rice tomorrow.



The sale, earlier scheduled for December 15 at a cost at N13, 000 per 50 kg has been re-scheduled to commence tomorrow at some specific locations across the state.
It was however gathered the late arrival of the rice was due to unexpected delay in production.
However, a state official who preferred anonymity, told Vanguard that the price of the 50 kilogram bag of the rice has been reduced to N12, 000, against the earlier speculated N13, 000.


The new sales points are said to super cede the previous ones earlier announced by the Special Adviser to the state Governor on Food Security, Mr. Sanni Okanlawan, who said the commodity will be made available at the 20 Local Government Areas, and 37 Local Council Development Areas.


The new locations are: Lagos East; Ikorodu-Odogunyan Farm Service Centre, Epe -Temu Farm Service Centre; Eredo-Noforija Town Hall, Ibeju -Magbon; Alade High School; Maryland-Subeb Premises.


In Lagos West, there will be sales at; Agege-LSADA Complex/Farm Service Centre, Ojo -LAISA Office Agric Bus Stop, Mowo-Coconut House, Badagry-Town Farm Service Centre, Marina, Oshodi-Ikeja Grammar School, Bolade Lagos Central – Ajah at the Ministry of Agriculture Area Office.


Lagos Island – Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, Office Adeniji/Freeman, Ajegunle-Alakoto Senior High School Tolu; Surulere -TESLIM Balogun Stadium.


Yaba -Mobolaji Johnson Sports Centre, Rowe Park.


Okanlawan had said that sales of the rice would be made at all the 57 Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas in the state to ensure proper distribution.

*Some people will buy at this rate and resell higher...they should make sure each person buys only one bag.

MISS TRUTH said...

What you said is what many will do Stella. Nigerians like to wicked themselves ( many ) Please try to be kind to yourselves dear Nigerians, don't buy and keep somewhere so you can sell high later, just buy one or 2 and allow others buy too. Don't be greedy!

No way,it can never get to the people who really need it.
Top ogas will just stock it into their office to be resold later.

Please there should be proper organisation to avoid stampede please. The entry points should be different from exit points because there definitely will be overcrowding. Proper management will ensure the joy associated with the cheaper price will not turn to sorrow fir any one.

Good initiative!!! God bless Gov.Ambode for this

Other state govs. Please take note and try something for us to benefit too.

Guess amboe forgot my eti-osa peeps

Hmm... With the rate of corruption in this country, the person in charge of distribution will first hoard like 50 bags for reselling at higher rate. The stress to buy it might just be too much in the long run.

Blossom said...

People will buy and resell. Some of the officials will even make it difficult for people to buy cos they may have marketers already on standby.

Loveme Jeje said...

Spicy April said...

Why not make it, mobile rice! Distribute in smaller truck, place trucks in every street, drive from house to house with camera and a journalist to monitor! Using social media to detect any angry or unsatisfied client! Good job to Gov Ambode!
