​Shameful, Irresponsibile That DSS Is Now Leaking Nigerians Phone Conversations To Sahara Reporters – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has accused the Department of State Service (DSS) of recording telephone conversations of Nigerians perceived as critical of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) government, editing the conversations and leaking same to Sahara Reporters, which has now become the official propaganda platform of the federal government.
Governor Fayose, who said he was not bothered by the new sinister antic of the federal government, added that; “Rather than sitting down and be monitoring peoples phones, the federal government should provide food for Nigerians and save the lives of those that are being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places.”
The governor, who reacted to his telephone conversation with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike that was published by Sahara Reporters today, through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said; “If the President and his hatchet men in the DSS, EFCC and other federal government agencies do not know what to do other than to record phone conversations of their perceived  political foes, they should just resign and save the country from this harrowing experience.” 
He said it was obviously that they were being threatened by the complimentary comments of notable Nigerians like Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and others about him because those comments negate the cabal’s evil intentions.  
The governor described the DSS recording telephone conversations of Nigerians and leaking them to Sahara Reporters to publish as the height of the political rascality, manipulation, oppression, suppression and irresponsibility by agents of the federal government that are trying so hard to cover up the crimes they perpetrated against the people of Rivers State. 
They should even go beyond taping of my lines and come to live with me in Ekiti government house so that they can do per seconds live recordings of whatever I say because in the year 2017, by the grace of God, I will still say more without apology,” he said. 
Governor Fayose said for the first time since democracy returned to the country in 1999, Nigerians were celebrating Christmas and new year with hunger and sufferings beyond measure.
Nigerians are asking for food on their tables, they want employments, they want security, not recording of people’s phone conversations and handing it to a road side online platform to publish.

“Unemployment and job loss are increasing at a very alarming rate while the electoral process is daily being bastardised.

“Rather than tackling hunger and the country’s economic woes, they have embarked on diversionary tactics with irrelevant stories of Governors Wike and Fayose’s phone conversations, governors who do not bear arms and have no control over any security apparatus,” the governor said. 
He said:  “I knew it before now that telephone conversations of prominent Nigerians, especially National Assembly members and opposition figures are being monitored, but I have remained unperturbed in my resolve to play my roles in rescuing Nigeria from the jaws of tyranny, which the present APC federal government represents.”
While maintaining that the APC led federal government do not respect the laws of the country, Governor Fayose said; “They know that what they are doing is illegal and clear contravention of Section 37 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which provides that; ‘The privacy of citizens, their homes, correspondence, telephone conversations and telegraphic communications is hereby guaranteed and protected.’ 

“However, because they are criminally minded and are running a tyrannical government, using the DSS, EFCC and other agencies, one is not surprised at the current development.  
He encourage Nigerians not to  keep silent in the face of this tyranny, saying; “it will get to everybody one day, some day.” 
He said; “Like I said before, their style has become so predictable. Whenever Nigerians cry of the pains and sufferings they are going through, they will come with flimsy stories like; “20 Chibok girls found,” “$1 billion found in Mr A, B or C bedroom,” “Boko Haram technically defeated,” “We have captured Sambisa forest,” “Governors Wike and Fayose’s phone conversations leaked,” etc just to divert attention.

“Regrettably, Governors Wike and Fayose that bear no arm remain their headache while their agents that bear arms like guns, armoured tanks and fighter jets etc, using them against Nigerians have not been called to question. 
“Going by the barrage of pains being inflicted on Nigerians by his cluelessness, if I will give the President a candid advise, I will tell him to resign because he has failed Nigerians, whose votes he obtained by deception. Under his watch, Dollar is now N500 to $1, their is unprecedented hunger in the land, Nigerians are being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places, “It is better for the President to resign because he appears not to have capacity for positivity.
“If all the presidents that ruled before Buhari had behaved like he is behaving now, he himself will be in jail.
“However, let me say it once again, I am one person who is not afraid of death or incarceration. I will keep telling Nigerians the truth, which obviously hurts Buhari and the cabal around him.

Camila Cabello Breaks Silence on Fifth Harmony Exit, Shocked By Group’s Statement

Camila Cabello has broken her silence on theFifth Harmony exit – specifically with regards to the shocking statement that indicated that she informed the group via her management that she was leaving.

I was shocked to read the statement the Fifth Harmony account posted without my knowing.

The girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much needed conversations about the future that we had during tour. Saying they were just informed through my representatives that i was ‘leaving the group’ is simply not true….i did not intend to end things with Fifth Harmony this way,” the 19-year-old entertainer wrote.

Camila‘s statement continues to say she will always support the remaining Fifth Harmony members – Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Hansen, and Normani Kordei. Camila thanked them for their friendship and time together as a band.

Camila also talked about her future making solo music in the lengthy statement.

when i turned 15, i had the blessing of being put into a group with four very talented girls. we were 5 strangers that weren’t even aware of each other’s existence that were given a shot at one dream together. it’s been almost 5 years and the most important chapter of my life thus far. i am so proud of everything we’ve achieved together as a group and will always be proud of being a part of it.

i was shocked to read the statement the fifth harmony account posted without my knowing. the girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much needed conversations about the future that we had during tour. 


Saying that they were just informed through my representatives that i was “leaving the group” is simply not true. just like the other girls said in their statement about their plans, i had also planned to continue with my own solo endeavors in the new year but i did not intend to end things with fifth harmony this way. as sad as it is to see this chapter ending this way, i will continue to root them all on as individuals and as a group, i wish nothing but the best for them, all the success in the world and true happiness.


just as i said to them during those conversations, and just like i try to encourage you guys, i want to lead by example when i say to each of you guys to be courageous in the pursuit of what makes your heart pound and what makes you come alive with purpose. our happiness is our own responsibility. we only have one life and we never know how much time we really have. we don’t carry money, trophies, social media followers, fame, or success with us.. we carry the memories that made us feel alive and the moments that made us fall in love with life. New chapters are scary, but conforming to what’s safe and looking back with regret is even scarier.


Next year I will be working on my own music and giving you a big chunk of my heart. To our amazing fans, I will always be so thankful for the opportunities being in this group has given to me. I am even more thankful for the times that we’ve gone to get frozen yogurt together and talk about music, for the times we’ve locked eyes during a lyric, for the hugs that put pieces back together in both of us, for more love than i can put into words, and for showing me the way to myself. You took 5 ordinary girls and made their dreams come true- and together, us and you guys, we’ve written an amazing story- of girls from all different cultures, backgrounds, colors, shapes, languages, music tastes, all going for one dream- a dream i will never forget. the memories we’ve made together will last a life time. now i gotta walk the walk.. i have always encouraged you to be fearless, to live your life in the name of love and to do what makes you happy…. as scary as it is to take the leap, i am excited and full of joy because i know that no matter what happens, i am following my heart. I hope to see you on my journey.
love only,
Camila”

Camila Cabello Leaves Fifth Harmony

It was just announced that Camila Cabello is leaving Fifth Harmony!

The announcement was made via a statement after the group’s last Jingle Ball performance on Sunday (December 18).

“We are four strong committed women who will continue Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavors,” Ally BrookeNormani KordeiDinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui – the remaining four members – wrote in a statement.

“Harmonizers, we are in this together. We love you with all our hearts,” they added, and signed the note from the foursome.

Within minutes, fans flocked to the comments section noticeably distraught about Camila’s surprise exit. But as longtime Fifth Harmony listeners know, it’s been quite a

turbulent year for the singers .

In a May 2016 interview with Billboard , the 19-year-old pop star explained that she’s certainly faced her fair share of fame-related struggles. “I was having terrible anxiety, nonstop…,” Camila explained. “I was scared of what would happen to me, of the things my brain might tell me. I realized the stuff I thought was important isn’t worth my health. Now I write in a diary every day, work out and meditate.

Then in early September, Cabello left in the middle of a concert after suffering from “too much anxiety.” She later apologized, and rejoined Fifth Harmony at their next performance one day later.

Discord between the young ladies seemingly came to a head earlier this year when Lauren asked to switch spots with Dinah Jane during a red carpet event, an incident that pushed her to speak out on the matter after facing criticism from internet trolls.

Likewise, Normani and Camila also had to clear the air on an alleged feud going on between them after Kordei seemed to shade her fellow group member in a Facebook Live chat . Only days later, Kordei deleted her Twitter account amid racist cyberbullying.

And just last week, Jauregui issued an apology for missing their Brazil tour pitstop. Jauregui’s absence came shortly after she was stopped by TSA at Washington Dulles International Airport after a staffer discovered marijuana in her carry-on luggage. An attorney for the girl band and Jauregui told E! News that she was not arrested.

Fifth Harmony formed during the second season of The X Factor . Since then, the group has commanded the charts with singles like “Work From Home” and “Bo$$,” having won three MTV Video Music Awards and one American Music Award.

They most recently performed Sunday evening at Y100’s Jingle Ball in Miami. Cabello did perform onstage with her former bandmates as well as alongside Justin Bieber during a separate duet.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna Confirm Split with Long Instagram Posts

​Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s relationship has seemingly come to a nasty end.

Chyna’s Instagram was hacked earlier tonight and screenshots of Chyna reportedly texting friends, lawyers, and other men saying that she planned on leaving Rob along with calling him “lazy,” fat,” and “insecure” were leaked.

Rob then took to Instagram in two extremely long posts to say that he is completely “heartbroken” because Chyna left him and took their one-month-old daughter Dream while saying he feels “broken” by what she said about him.

It didn’t take Chyna long to respond to Rob’s post on her new Instagram – before quickly deleting it – to say that he is “mentally ill & refuses to seek help.”

Sorry to be so open but I’m not feeling so good after seeing @blacchyna messages about me and what her plans were. I have never been this heartbroken in my life. I don’t mind being so open or if anyone thinks I’m being weak but I don’t play when it comes to Family and Chyna was my Family and thought we were getting married. I treated her as a Queen. My baby girl is 1 month old and Chyna took her and left this beautiful home that I just bought for us. Right before Christmas. Someone I have given my all too. I Loved every inch of that woman and loved everything that came with her. I truly loved Angela. I gave everything I owned for her. Didn’t know I was just part of her plan. I really believed she was in love with me the way that I was with her and I am so hurt and never felt this before. It’s different when you have a kid with someone. And after reading Chyna’s messages to her best friend she was going to drop me after a year. She didn’t even make it to that. I am so broken. This is a woman I fought my entire family for. I was in love with this woman to the fullest and I was none of that to her. Go to my snap—–> @robphuckedme

I thought this was going to be the best year of my life ,,, had a beautiful baby Dream and haven’t spent Christmas with family in years and I just can’t believe she really hurt me this way. She knows how to hurt me and I loved her so hard like I’m supposed to. Like any man is supposed to love their Wife. Chyna knew exactly what she was doing to get me. I can’t believe she did this to me. And this isn’t for some ratings this is my real life so please understand I’m just being open right now. Cuz if it was for ratings I wouldn’t explain all this here. And with Chyna’s messages and her leaving with everything and the baby I am broken. I go 1000 percent for my girl. I am so confused how a man who gives and loves everything about a woman is the one left alone. 😓 I’m sorry for being so open once again ,,, this is killing me 💔

“I’M DONE. This entire year I have done nothing but help Rob! It’s so SAD & PATHETIC how low he’d stoop to cover up HIS PERSONAL ISSUES! I have done nothing but help & loved him from the beginning! It’s Chy here I got my own!!! I was doing swell before I got with him! I got him out of khloe’s house, helped him lose all that f—ing weight for him to do nothing & gain it all back! Rob asked for all of this! Rob begged me to have Dream! He stressed me out my ENTIRE PREGNANCY!!! Accusing me of cheating, going crazy on me with massive text blast daily! being an absolute lunatic & then cover it up with gifts! I was verbally abused every other day. I was still there with nothing but high hopes for us! I had to beg him to cut his hair, To take his braces of, and To get more into his businesses! I shouldn’t have to tell any grown ass man s—! Not to mention Just brought him a brand new 2016 Range Rover! I PUT MY PRIDE ASIDE & I GAVE UP MY HOUSE TO MOVE INTO KYLIE’S HOUSE WITH HIM TO BE WITH A MAN!! We weren’t together in that house 2 whole weeks before he starting calling me all types of bitches & hoes! AND I NEVER NOT ONCE CHEATED ON ROB! EVER! I gave him the passcode to my phone I have nothing to hide.He refuses to do anything! Eat healthy, work out, work, anything positive, he does nothing! Those Messages OLD AF! He only did this because when he went through my phone he couldn’t find anything to be mad about! He’s on snapchat acting hurt but he’s yet to come see Dream yet! He knows where we are! Honestly it’s only so much a person can take. Everyone has tried to help Rob. I’ve gone beyond to help & so has his family! I have no longer have time to feed into Robert’s shenanigans I have 2 children & myself to fend for. What hurts the most is watching him do this to me knowing my last situation and promising to never put me through it. Especially after our child is only 1 month,” Chyna captioned in her deleted post.
