On Thursday afternoon inside the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari signed the Not-Too-Young-To-Run-Bill into law.
This comes two days after he pledged to do so in his Democracy day speech. This new law reduces the age qualification to contest for political offices. You no longer have to wait till you are 40 to run for President. Here’s the outline below:
President : Reduced from 40 to 30 years.
House of Representatives – Reduced from 30 to 25 years.
State House of Assembly – Reduced from 30 to 25 years.
