Nigerians which comprised of mostly youths marched in protest to have the #NotTooYoungToRun bill passed. The convening point which was the Unity Fountain Abuja consisted of many determined Nigerian youths seeking to be heard by the powers that be.
The #NotTooYoungToRun bill is one of the many bills in the constitution amendment process. The bill seeks to reduce the constitutional age required for running for any elective office in Nigeria. Although there was the rumour which stated that the senate had dropped the bill last week on July 20, the senate released a statement that the bill is still under consideration. It should be noted that under the current constitution, the age of qualification to be allowed to run for Presidency is 40 and above, 35 for Senate and State Governors, and 30 for House of Representatives and State House of Assembly. However, the bill seeks to reduce this ages to 30 for Presidency, 30 for Senate and State Governors, and 25 for both House of Representatives and State House of Assembly.Photo Credit: Getty
