The Lagos State Government, yesterday, explained that the Lake Rice scheduled to be released on December 15 to residents at N13,000 per 50 kg towards the Yuletide celebrations will soon be available for sales.

Lagos state Government, through Mr. Sanni Okanlawan, Special Adviser on Food Security to Governor Akinwumi Ambode, had earlier announced readiness to roll out Lake Rice on December 15 to Lagosians at N13,000 per 50 kg.

Lake Rice is named from joint venture between Lagos and Kebbi states.
