He said the Agricultural produce under the agreement cut across paddy rice, tubers, legumes, and grains.

 

“It is a long-term strategic partnership between both States that would create a ready supply of farm produce directly from the ongoing massive Lagos Food logistics hub in Ketu Ereyun, Epe.

 

“Farmer Governor Mohammed Umaru Bago signed on behalf of the Niger State government while Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu signed for the Lagos State government.

 

“This move further demonstrates the determination of Farmer Governor Umaru Bago to ensure that the food security policy of his administration and that of the Federal government is realized.
