“I visited Sarkin Makafi and I was touched by his revelation. He told me that they have not been getting their monthly stipends.
“When our leader and my father, Wamakko, was the governor of Sokoto State, Imams, their assistants and those calling for prayers were put on monthly stipends,” he pledged.
