Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, and his Kebbi State counterpart, Atiku Bagudu, on Wednesday unveiled the much anticipated Lagos-Kebbi Rice christened ‘LAKE RICE’.

LAKE RICE is an acronym from Lagos (LA) and Kebbi (KE), a partnership signed between the two states in March to produce cheap, well-milled local rice on a commercial scale for public consumption.

A source close to the Lagos State government disclosed to Concise News that the previous locations the government planned to sell the rice has changed. He also added that the change became necessary in the face of rising fears that some people may hijack staple food and sell at higher prices to the public.
