Lake Rice: Lagos Signs Pact With Distributors by Ehiscotch(m): 12:48am On Dec 19, 2017
To ensure even and fair distribution of LAKE Rice Lagos State Government has sought the participation of major rice distributors and signed agreement with the distributors in the transportation, distribution and marketing of LAKE rice.

Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Food Security Mr. Ganiyu Okanlawon who signed on behalf of the Lagos State Government said the agreement would ensure that residents get LAKE rice not just from designated centres but also from the open market at the official government price.

Okanlawon explained that the agreement which is valid for one year in the first instance and may be extended by mutual agreement in writing for additional period involves major distributors in various rice markets in the State which have the capacity to receive and distribute large tonnes of LAKE Rice during after the yuletide season.

“The distributors shall transport and market LAKE Rice, engage in equitable distribution of the product by avoiding hoarding and other sharp practices and ensure all year round continuous and equitable distribution of LAKE rice”, he said.


Noting that the need to ensure availability of the product to citizens is key in the State’s drive to attain food sufficiency, the Special Adviser stated that food production and self-sufficiency have been given priority attention at State’s policy and strategic level

Okanlawon, who implored the distributors not to default in the agreement assured the distributors of Lagos State Government commitment to keep its end of the bargain.

Speaking earlier, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Mr. Olayiwole Onansanya explained the agreement sets out the terms upon which the parties will co-operate with each other for execution of the scheme.

He added that the state government will verify claims of address and warehouse or shops of the distributors, approve all business plans before implementation and conduct regular monitoring visits with respect to capacity and effectiveness of the distributor.


Responding on behalf of the distributors, the Iyaloja of Dalako Rice Market, Mrs. Ibilola Sholaja thank the State government for the opportunity given to distributors to be part of history in the sales of LAKE rice.

She assured the State government that distributors will abide by the terms of the agreement.

If only states can toe the path of Lagos (the least Allocation dependent state) by engaging in agricultural activities.

Gradually, the policies from the top are spiralling down to the bottom. The sad thing is people need money in their pockets to enjoy this and our state governors are not helping by not paying salaries.

Rice is cheaper here in Benue but it is a "Civil Servant dominated" state: Few monies chasing these goods.

I hope Fayose can learn what stomach infrastructure truly is .

Not just agriculture, sir. But Agriculture goes a longer way in alleviating the grief and easing the pangs of inflation. If the people can afford cheaper food then it would mitigate the on going tensions.

Besides, not every state is as geographically blessed as Ogun state to benefit from its proximity to Lagos. Then again, some states might be agro based and it can be enough.

I also believe it is relatively cheaper and it creates employment too.

Lagos needs to partner with rice farms in Ogun/Ekiti too to keep the growth in the SW cool

Ogun state has always been proximal to Lagos. Proximity is not the only thing helping. Remember Ogun state of 8 years ago? The one box heads and poor clowns loves belittling?


1) Ogun, like Lagos, is also close to the Atlantic Ocean
2) Ogun is viable for industrial growth
3) Investors trust Ogun state
4) Ogun has leaders with vision. They harnessed all of Ogun's benefits to bring in investors
5) Ogun indigenes [and Yorubas in general) are passionate about making the state/region grow.

All these factors work together to make Ogun the fastest growing state atm.

I'm not disagreeing with you that agriculture sustains the economy, I just don't want us to streamline on agriculture and neglect other economical sectors.

What?
There are a whole lot of variables in play.

That would have been considered long before the MOU.

Why do you think it wasn't grown in Lagos instead?

Every state has their comparative advantage and we are talking welfare of Nigeria's most populous city, you can't be sentimental about that.

They should use TAX receipt to select true tax payers and ensure ingrates don't eat more lake rice than Lagos taxpayers. Won't be surprised if SARS official start seizing lake rice heading for places where it is neither planted nor sponsored.

Take nothing away from Ogun state and its leaders but let's call a spade a spade.

Not sure if they have improved the quality but this rice is so short!!! The grains are almost all divided into 2 or 3 pieces. Still eating it. They need to increase standard

Lagos has the ready market, other southwestern states should up their game by being the major food producer for Lagos and for themselves. If the Southwest combined can produce about ,5 million of fresh milk daily through zero grazing likewise for beef then trailers loaded with cattle from the North will no longer heading to the Southwest.

Greater dependency could lead to a formidable independence.
Majority of that rice is grown in Kebbi. Both states are interdependent; Nigeria is independent.

I agree!

Question is, how can the SW enter and dominate the food producer market?

Igbos are dependent on the north for food. The only thing consumed in the East which is produced in Igbo land is palm oil and the vegetables eaten there. Every other thing, the North supplies.

That's why during the civil war, when the north stopped supplying, kwashiokor took over the Biafra side.

Unfortunately, the present set of Igbos are more interested in playing to the gallery than actual results. Look at Obiano and his Fifty shades of folly. Inexistent rice and ugwu exports to nowhere.
