CPC Chieftain Wants President Jonathan's Home State to Have Less Representatives at National Assembly!
The ever deepening bitterness that has pushed the pint sized controversial former minister of the FCT, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, to the point of hatred for the president has reared its ugly head once again. This time, the ex-Peoples Democratic Party (PD) chieftain and now Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) chieftain has called for a reduction in the amount of representatives the President's state, Bayelsa, has in the House of Representatives.
He made this call on his twitter profile today. Ironically, this morning there was a bomb blast in Kano, but Elrufai had nothing to say about. Leading one pundit to say "being out of power has made Elrufai so bitter he has lost it!"
As usual NaijaPundit brings you his tweet exclusively.

Photo News: West Brom Defender Liam Ridgewell, 28, Wipes His Backside With Wads Of £20 Notes
West Brom defender Liam Ridgewell, 28, squats over a toilet and wipes his backside with a wad of £20 notes. Scattered on the floor in front of him are dozens more £20 notes, totalling almost £1,000.
The Premier League star, who earns at least £20,000 a week, is apparently using the cash instead of toilet roll. He claims the sick stunt was simply a “joke” to wind up a friend — but it will infuriate more than just his pal.
