A Chieftain of the ruling All Progressive Congress in Lagos state has reiterated that the government is doing everything possible to bring down the prices of foodstuff.
Quadri, who is the Chairman of Alimosho Local Government Area in the state, made this bold declaration while receiving a delegation of Rotary Club of Akowonjo 9110, led by its District-Governor, Patrick Ikheloa, and President, Shola Abidakun, stressing that the APC administration in Lagos swung into agro-business to ensure food security for its people.
“By the end of this year, or first quarter next year, things will change in Lagos. Already, we are into agro-business in Kebbi State. We have massive land on which we planted grains, among which is rice, our people’s staple food. And it is expected that the truckloads of rice will storm Lagos soon."
"So, I can assure you that before the end of this year, the price of a bag of rice, which is N18,000, will drop to N9,000.”
