Crowd of teachers gathered at the “National Bank” Hodeidah Branch on Tuesday 17th of Ramadam and for the second time on 28th of Ramadan waiting to receive their salaries but unfortunately the computer kept fasting and rejected to disburse the teachers salaries. What made the teachers more irritant that the screwy computer is not fasting when the other customers are concerned?
When teachers began to complain against such contradictory treatment, they were warned to stop uttering a word, as hey are not customers. If they are not customers so they have to clarify under which clause or system the teachers are classified.
