    How long does it take government to fulfil that demand made by the teachers union of Lakes State? Not just for the two primaries School which had been mentioned in your reported, but for the entire Lakes State.

    All teachers must be in the same category as far as the knowledge of all is concern.

    Significantly, however, the more we encourage the system of education, the more we have actually encouraging our primative mine people. People who are still keeping stupidety traditional mathod of refused their own childern for the rights of studies.
