He said, “several complaints have come and so, we put together a team because, the school heads and matrons have been making alot of complaints, yet they are sabotaging the system.”

He said auditors were at Peki SHS on Friday but was not sure if they found some infractions of the law but wondered why the school would extend such gesture to the auditor if everything was really in order.
