Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, 24th of August, flagged off the groundbreaking of a Central Food security systems and logistics hub in Ketu-Erefun, Epe area of the state, saying the project was proof of his administration’s commitment to addressing the challenges of stakeholders in the Agri-space and giving hope to the people through improved quality of life.
The completion of the project is expected to last for 24 months and will provide storage facilities for more than 1,500 trucks per day.
Besides, the project which will be implemented in two phases- the pilot phase and the main phase- will create wealth for more than five million people, feed more than 10 million Lagosians and guarantee food supplies for at least 90 days.
The State Food Security Systems will be built on 1.2 million square metres of land, and will have components such as Aggregation/storage facilities; Administrative offices; Trading/Brokering facilities; Packaging facilities; Processing facilities; Cold chain/dry goods services; logistics Services/ trailer park; water treatment plant; Health centre; Fuel station/ Fire station and Abattoir and lairage.
