Lagos State Government says its multi-billion Naira 32-metric tonnes per hour rice mill at Imota will be completed in the first quarter of next year.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State said on Thursday,  September 24, 2020, at the FATE Foundation’s 5th Annual Virtual Alumni Conference

Governor Sanwo-Olu said that the mill, when operational, would ensure a steady supply of freshly processed rice of about 2.4 million bags of 50kg per annum to Lagosians, in addition to over 250,000 jobs to be created in the upstream and downstream sectors of the rice value chain.

He said his administration’s (T.H.E.M.E.S) developmental agenda is to ensure food security and improved nutrition for Lagosians.

The governor said his administration would launch another N5 billion support to assist the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund, LSETF, to empower Small and Medium Enterprises, SMEs, and improve the skills of entrepreneurs, with a view to serving residents and creating a thriving small businesses’ economy.
