Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State says food security will continue to be a priority to cut the cost of food commodities in the state.
He gave the assurance on Sunday in Lagos during the 2023 Lagos Food Festival at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island.
The Governor was represented by his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat.
The festival’s theme for 2023 was “A Fusion of Flavours.”
He stated that his administration would remain committed to developing the agricultural industry.
According to Sanwo-Olu, the sector has seen various efforts and is prominently featured in the state’s THEMES Agenda.
He was pleased with the large turnout at the event, saying it represented the true spirit of Lagos.
The Lagos Food Festival, according to the governor, showcases prosperity, resourcefulness, innovation, and the spirit of Lagos to young people.
According to him, the food festival provides a forum for Small and Medium Enterprises in agriculture and food to promote their products and network.
“The event is about young people mostly showing their talents and making money so we cannot be a society just sitting and complaining.
“We can see all these young people here today; they are doing various things, so they are looking inward to say how we can add value and be successful.
“That is what I see here, prosperity, ingenuity, innovation, and the spirit of Lagos,” he said.
