TIC Chairperson of Ilorin South local government, Hajia Funmi Salau, who made this known in Ilorin, noted that they payment was from the July federal allocation to the 16 local government councils in the state.

She added that owing to the increased allocation to the councils, members of Joint Accounts Allocation Committee resolved that N100 million be released to offset part of the arrears owed the former political office holders.
