The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has inaugurated ‘Ounje Eko’ food markets, aimed at offering discounted food items across the five divisions of Lagos, starting from Sunday, March 17, 2024.

A statement by Gbenga Omotoso, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, essential food commodities such as rice, beans, gari, bread, eggs, tomatoes, and pepper, among others, will be available at a 25% reduced rate for residents.

To ensure transparency and accessibility to a larger population, a voucher system will be implemented during the initial phase. Independent payment solution providers and food vendors have been carefully chosen to oversee the process and provide real-time data for monitoring purposes.


For transparency, the prices of the items have also been listed. A 5kg bag of rice would sell for N5,325 while 1kg goes for N1,065; a 5kg bag of Beans – N6,225 while 1kg would sell for N1,245. Prices of other staple food items will also be made available through various media outlets, the statement read.

The markets will be open at 27 locations in Ikeja; six in Lagos Island; nine in Ikorodu; five in Epe; and 10 in Badagry divisions.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the commissioner said,  has called on all Lagosians to cooperate with the operators at the various locations, monitor the process, and provide feedback through official channels of the Lagos State Government.
