Barring any hitch, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari will assent the #NotTooYoungToRun bill which has now been transmitted to him.
In a facebook post by the Acting President of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Young Women Forun and a Member of the Board of Trustees of the governing APC, Rinsola Abiola said the youths are counting on president Buhari to sign the bill as this will ensure youth inclusiveness in politics.
“Pleased to learn that the #NotTooYoungToRun bill has been transmitted to the President. We’re counting on HE, President Muhammadu Buhari to keep faith with young people by assenting to this bill. This will be a milestone in the campaign for youth inclusion and I’m hopeful that this administration will not let us down,” she said.
THE PRECISION recalled that the National Assembly last year as part of the constitution amendment considered the #NotTooYoungToRun bill in order to give Nigerian youths more space in the political process.
