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

The local rice, earlier billed to hit Lagos markets for N13, 000 per bag on 15 Dec., is now finally selling at N12,000 per bag.
