Lagos State Government has signed a strategic agreement with Niger State, a sub national entity with the largest agricultural farmland in the country towards enhancing food production and security.

Governors of the two States signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Lagos on Wednesday for a cooperation geared towards exploring their comparative advantages in order to facilitate constant supply of agricultural commodities for the end consumers.

The agreement tagged “Produce for Lagos Initiative” is part of the efforts of the two parties to cultivate thousands of hectares of land to sustain food production and supply chain.

Governor Sanwo-Olu said Lagos, being the smallest State in terms of landmass, and Niger, being the largest State, is no coincidence that the biggest and the smallest are looking at opportunities for citizens of both states to be the beneficiaries of this historic partnership.


Governor Bago described the partnership as “a landmark” for both parties, noting that the North Central state was willing to leverage organised market in Lagos to boost economic activities in his State.

Lagos Commissioner for Agriculture, Ms. Abisola Olusanya, noted that the arrangement would help in price stability, as the MoU accommodated pre-production contracts in the value chain to enable farmers cut costs and improve output.
