This was as he revealed that citizens will only be able to purchase items worth not more than N25,000.

The Governor made this known during a media chat as part of the state’s effort to tackle the economic hardship in Nigeria.

“We will open Sunday Markets in at least 42 identified markets across Lagos State. You will be able to buy food items at a discounted price. You will only need able to buy items worth up to N25,000,” he said.

He also said the state will identify caterers and ‘Mama Put’ in each LGA to feed over 1,000 people per day in All LGAs (at least once a day).

On our Lagos Rice Mill, he said there are challenges with Paddy all over the Country, adding that the state is in discussions with the Federal Government to be able to get two vessels of Paddy (from outside) for the Lagos Rice Mill to produce for almost a year.

Further speaking on economic hardship, Sanwo-Olu threw a challenge to the Private Sector to look into what they can also do for the citizens just like the way it was done during the Covid-19 pandemic.
