Sen. Solomon Olamilekan, who represents Lagos West Senatorial District, on Thursday said that taking soaked “garri’’ and dried fish as a meal gave him more satisfaction than any other food.
Olamilekun; a member of the Senate Committee on Finance, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that garri and dried fish was his favourite food.
Some people would ask me, why would a senator like garri and not all these expensive stuffs? and the answer I give is that it makes me feel great.
It is so amazing that sometimes when I am having stomach upset, and I take garri everything disappears within minutes. I think garri is best suited for my body,’’ he said.
Olamilekan stated that he preferred mostly local foods to foreign delicacies.
