    that is how they were looting the state dry, making the alot of noise about uncommon transformation. uptill nw alot of primary school teachers in some of the local govtments are yet alot of their financial entitlements, 2013,2014 leave grants,may n june salary,7.5% illegally deducted fro their salaries and others. infact the list is endless. the most painful part is that after all these they still have the boldness to go on the media and said they are not owing workers.
