You should all remember that the allocation for each state has been drastically reduced by the Federal Government because the country is broke or let me say because of some austerity measures in the biggest economy in Africa where crude sale in the Period of 4-5 years summed up to 469 Billion dollar but no savings.For example, River state's allocation used to be around 20 Billion Naira but over the period of 11 months or so it was reduced to 12 Billion Naira and at the moment less than that. Rotimi Amaechi was able to pay workers' salaries because of the high IGR (Internal Generated Revenue) in River state...That is the part of the Austerity measures taken by the FG. Though, the governors of the states involved do not have any excuse for not paying salaries,they also have problems of accountability.Some other states are still owing  ..Delta state is still owing some teachers' salaries, as at December about 11 states couldn't pay salaries..
