Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has unveiled the locally produced”Ofada Osun Rice”, which places Osun among major rice producing states in Nigeria.
Aregbesola who  visited farmers at  Onilapa Rice Farm Ogbaagba earlier in the week,  reiterated his government’s commitment towards  ensuring adequate food production for self sustenance of Osun State, emphasizing  the need for Nigerians to feed themselves.
AgroNigeria recalls that Lagos and Kebbi  in December 2016  launched a rice  christened ”Lake rice”  which was jointly produced by the two states, nine months after  both governments signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to produce 70 per cent of Nigeria’s rice requirements.
