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.
