Not Too Young To Run - Senate Passes Bill For Age Reduction

The senate has pass a bill which suggests that Nigerian youths can run for President and Governors. This has gone a long way in putting smiles on the faces of many Nigerian youths as they celebrated the move irrespective of the fact that the bill still needs to be endorsed by the 24 State Assembly and Presidential Assent in order for it to be effective.

The bill was passed on Wednesday and it seeks to reduce the age for running for the President from 40 to
35 years, also from 35 to 30 for Governors, from 30 to 25 for both House of Representatives and House of Assembly.

Indeed this has gone a long way in backing the recent movement by Nigerian youth tagged ‘not too young to run’ which pleaded that the youths be given a platform to rule too in the nation.
