ayodele-fayose-new

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the September 28 Edo State governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu contested against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and not the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fayose described APC’s victory as “victory only made possible by the use of Federal Government agencies to subvert the will of the people.”
The governor the win-at-all cost attitude of the APC.
Speaking on the outcome of the election through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said it was unfortunate that “those whose change was made possible because the then PDP government allowed the people the freedom to make a choice have now eroded INEC’s independence.
He said it should be obvious to all lovers of democracy in Nigeria and the international community that the APC-led federal government will never allow free and fair election in the country as the PDP and other opposition parties now contest elections against INEC.
“The power of the people to choose their governor was upturned in Edo State. Unfortunately too, these elements have even murdered the rights of Nigerians to protest against the subversion of their will and it is now obvious that only the insistence of Nigerians can save democracy in the country.
Elsewhere, Fayose said the state cannot access over N4 billion from the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) because of the diversion of N850 million by the previous administration in 2012.
He said the diversion led to the suspension of the state from UBEC activities, leading to the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) lacking resources to execute its projects.
The governor said this during a meeting with members and leaders of Ekiti State chapter of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS), in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, yesterday, the governor also said a Parents’ Summit would soon be held in the state to further sensitise parents on their roles in the provision of quality education for their children.
He described parents and teachers as the two most critical stakeholders in the sector and said he would ensure regular interactive session with members of the association.
In his speech, Ekiti State Chairman of NAPPS, Alhaji Saka Adeleye, commended Fayose for turning around the sector which led to the state coming first in the recent examinations conducted by the National Examinations Council (NECO).
“We will continue to partner with the government to lift education and help the state sustain the glory

Zimbabwean Church leader in s*x scandal as photos naked photos and sex acts with 33 girls is exposed

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
