Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos says residents of the state consume about N4.5 billion worth of food daily just as he reiterated commitment to food security.

“Lagos is a coastal state and has an extremely limited arable land space and home to about 21 million people.

Its residents consume about N4.5 billion worth of food daily and 50 per cent of beef produced in the country running into several billions in other trading activities with markets cutting across all the local government areas in the state,” Mr Sanwo-Olu said.

The governor said that although Lagos covers only 0.4 per cent of Nigeria’s territorial land mass, making it the smallest state in the country, “It accounts for over 60 per cent of industrial and commercial activities.”

Mr Sanwo-Olu stated this on Monday in Lagos at the opening ceremony of a two-day zonal sensitisation workshop on the “Implementation of Food Systems Transformation Pathways in Nigeria 2022”.
