Mosque Imams in Zamfara are collecting worth over (N71M) as monthly salary from the state government coffers.
This was stated by the Deputy Accountant General of the State Mansur Ladan when he featured on Thunder Blowers Multimedia TV show in Gusau on Wednesday.
He said the state is also paying monthly salary to the nineteen Emirs, and medical students.
He lamented that, despite scarcity in the state resources, the government ensured that salary is paid promptly at the end of every month.
He added that, stakeholders do not care to ask how the state is making the magic of paying salary to civil servant with a low earned IGR of N300 million naira and below per month.
