Badagry LGA to Open Discounted Food Markets in May – Chairman

Mr. Olusegun Onilude, Chairman of Badagry Local Government Area, announced on Saturday that the council would initiate its food discount markets by May 2024. 

This commitment was made during a food distribution event in Badagry, where over 500 residents received free food items from the government.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State provided the free food items to all 57 Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas in the state, as reported by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Chairman Onilude reiterated that starting from May, the council’s food discount market would be operational.

“We will reduce the prices of food items just as the state government is doing and be selling to our people at the council secretariat here in Ajara, Badagry.

“All you need to do is to come over with little money and buy food items at reduced prices,” he said.

The chairman said that the council had continued to provide free food items as palliatives to cushion the effects of economic hardship being experienced by the people.

“In March, over 1,000 residents of the council were given food items such as rice, beans, and garri and we pledged that this will be a continuous exercise until normalcy returns to our economy.

“Today, courtesy of Gov. Sanwo-Olu, another 500 residents of Badagry will go home with free food items.
