The kwara state governor, mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq has ordered reduction of Alaguas and Magajis in our Emirate saying they are not doing anything that could warrant them getting such salaries.
A source who hinted us and pleaded for anonymity said the reduction started after the swearing in of this present government, he further said that before reduction ,the salaries of Alaguas was #25,000 while Magajis salaries was #16,000 and after reduction Alaguas now get #10,000 and Magajis gets #5000.
He said the Alaguas and Magajis were not happy with the new development from government, that if the government can’t increase what is being paid to them by past governments it should not reduce their stipends during this austere times, that this will affect their families drastically.
Finally, they urged the governor to reconsider his actions and return their salaries to them. They also made clear that a huge majority of them and their subjects voted for his government and this is not what they expect from his *O TO GE* government.
