Ms. Abisola Olusanya, Lagos State Commissioner for Agriculture, along with Bidemi Kosoko and Sola Kosoko, Visits the Lagos Fresh Food Hub in Idi-Oro, Mushin on Saturday, February 10
Some Nollywood actresses and other Lagos residents on Saturday besieged the new Lagos Fresh Food Agro-Hub in Idi-Oro, Mushin on Saturday to shop for fresh farm produce at farm gate prices.
They spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the Saturday Food Fair organised by the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture.
The fair was to create awareness about the market before it would become fully operational in six months.
They lauded the clean environment and calm ambience of the hub, describing the experience as awesome.
Williams said she was impressed by what she saw in the hub and urged the government to construct more of such hubs across the state.
The Kosokos also advised market men and women to embrace a good maintenance culture to keep the place clean, neat and hygienic always.
Dr Bunmi Obakoya, a renowned businesswoman, also commended the state government for providing such a beneficial hub to ease the shopping experience.
Obakoya urged the government to continue to improve the services to attract more customers to the hub.
Another resident, Mrs Eunice Omoniyi, said her experience was worthwhile especially as the food hub also had security.
“I like what I have seen so far; as a senior citizen, shopping here is a great deal and I like it.”
