"The payment of our wages had been announced for January 2017. Now they are talking about March," complains a local elected official. Since 2015, municipal magistrates are expecting their wages. To date, they have not yet received anything. 

However, in a decree signed by the President of the Republic on 16 September 2015, arrangements had been made for the remuneration of the Government delegates, the mayors and their deputies. According to Article 3 of the Decree, the monthly salaries of mayors are CFA 250 000 and those of their deputies are 150 000 FCFA.

According to the tri-weekly; L'Oeil du Sahel, on Wednesday 8 March 2017, it was only on February 23rd that the Prime Minister announced in a decree that the payment of wages for local magistrates would be effected during the end of the month. 

Unfortunately, only 150 mayors will first collect. For the rest, they will receive their salaries next April. Yet, on the side of the Ministry of Finance, no assertion is made as to the precision of these payments. "By March 15, we will be more focused on effectiveness. For now, nothing has moved on this subject," says a source close to this ministry.

 Nevertheless, some remain optimistic and especially impatient to receive their first salary. 
"I think this treatment will boost us and further strengthen our commitment to serving our people. I am all the more pleased that we will be recompensed for our wage arrears. We have been waiting for this for a long time," said the mayor of Maroua 1st, Hamidou Hamidou.
