A top Chieftain of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), in Lagos State, Ganiyu Quadri, has reiterated that his party is doing everything possible to place the agro-business scheme run by the State government in Kebbi State on a high end, so that the cost of rice will drop to a mere N9,000 by December, from the present price of between N18,500 and N20,000.

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."
