LAGOS State governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Niger State counterpart, Hon. Mohammed Umaru Bago yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the Produce-For-Lagos initiative.

The Produce-For-Lagos initiative is a long-term strategic partnership between Niger and Lagos states, where Niger State will produce food items (paddy, tubers, legumes, grains etc) and Lagos State will position itself to be a major organised market (off-takers). 

Farmers in Niger State will have a ready market for their produce while Lagos State citizens can be assured of availability and price stability of food items. 

In the long-term, this initiative will create a ready supply of farm produce directly to the ongoing massive Lagos food logistics in Ketu Ereyun, Epe.
