The State Government of Osun in the infograph said N934,841,306 was used to pay Local Government Workers as a total sum of N791,074,280.8 went to the pockets of the pensioners that retired from the civil service.

Since the first tranche of the refund was released in November 2016, Osun specifically disbursed the payment by using all the refund to settled workers arrears in the state.

Although, the disbursements were premised on the condition that a minimum of 50 per cent would be applied for the payment of workers’ salaries and pensions but Osun raised the ceiling to more than 80 per cent.

The government however expressed its determination to fulfil all its financial obligations as soon as the state’s economy improves.


  1. Good for them,Abia state is doing politics with its own.
    Even after the release of the Paris fund, the highest he paid was 2 months to L G A and a miserable one month to some parastatals.These are people being owed six months.

    Tomorrow he will release pictures and claim he has paid.

  2. He did well if this is true.
    I hope they won't wait for another Paris fund before they will pay salary

  3. Aregbesola can lie for Africa

  4. All I see the confusion in that dog face
