Gov. Sanwo-Olu at the United Nations Food Systems Summit revealed Lagos State Government’s efforts on Improving Food Security and raising the capacity for Agricultural Production
“In Lagos, we are putting in optimum efforts to ensure we support the agricultural sector and promote a sustainable food system.
We are pleased to note that we have completed our five-year Agric master plan, which would be raising our capacity to be a key player in agricultural production, while also creating a marketing platform for export of local agro-allied products and improving food security.
“In a bid to also ensure we maximize the opportunities inherent in the agric sector, we have also put in place the Lagos Aquatic Center of Excellence (LACE), which is a fish processing center capable of stimulating our fish capacity production from 20% to over 60%.
“We are also working towards the commissioning of the almost completed 52 ton per hour rice mill in Ikorodu to ensure food security in the State and across the nation, as rice is an important staple of the Nigerian diet.”
