Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The Chair­man of Kwali Area Coun­cil, Mr. Joseph Shazhin, has as­sured tra­di­tional rulers that the coun­cil will give each of them the sum of N100,000 as monthly im­prest to en­able them dis­charge their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

Speak­ing when he re­ceived a del­e­ga­tion of Pai chief­dom, led by the Chief of Pai, Al­haji Ab­dul­lahi Bala, at his res­i­dence in Kwali, the chair­man said the monthly stipend will mo­ti­vate tra­di­tional rulers to main­tain peace in their do­mains.

“Hon­estly, I must say we ap­pre­ci­ate your sup­port and al­le­giance to the present APC ad­min­is­tra­tion of Kwali Area Coun­cil and I am promis­ing all our tra­di­tional rulers of N100,000 as their monthly stipend,” the chair­man said.

Ear­lier, the Sarkin-Yakin Pai, a re­tired INEC Res­i­dent Elec­toral Com­mis­sioner in charge of Kogi and Ek­iti states, Al­haji Hus­sain Halilu Pai, said it was a tra­di­tion to pay visit to a sit­ting chair­man to show that the peo­ple of Pai chief­dom are solidly be­hind him.
