According to a report by Channels Television, the Governor Willie Obiano-led Anambra State government, says it is increasing efforts to close the gap in Nigeria’s rice production and emerging as the third largest producer of rice in the nation making efforts to shift its revenue source away from crude oil sales.
Photos making rounds online and on social media, shows that the state is stepping up in its bid to be the largest producer of one of Nigeria’s most common foods in the country.
It was gathered from online sources that the Anambra State rice is now in circulation in Akwa Market, Onitsha, Aba, Abakaliki, Uyo, and are currently selling at N9,000 per bag as against the N17,000-N20,000 which other foreign rice sells in the market.
