Imota rice mill to start operation Q1 2022, says Sanwo-Olu


Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, says the Imota rice mill will begin operation by the first quarter of 2022.

The governor called on contractors handling the project to ensure that by the proposed date, the mill commences operation.

Sanwo-Olu said this yesterday while on a visit to assess the project at the Imota area of Ikorodu, two years after his first visit.

He said that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, the 32-metric tons per hour rice mill being constructed by the Lagos state government would begin operations before the end of the first quarter of 2022.

Sanwo-Olu said the facility would be put through a pre-production test run before the end of March in 2022, after which full production capacity would be activated.

“We are pretty much excited with how far we have gone with the construction, and we are believing that all the contractors are working collaboratively to ensure that the deadlines are met,” he said.

According to him, the project was delayed due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
