Not-Too-Young-To-Run Bill finally sign into law by PMB

President Muhammadu BHari on Thursday signed the Not – Too – Young- To -Run Bill into law.

Buhari signed the bill into law at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja , barely two days after he promised to do so.

The law reduces the age qualification for president from 40 to 30; governor from 35 to 30; senator from 35 to 30; House of Representatives membership from 30 to 25 and State House of Assembly membership from 30 to 25.

In his Democracy Day address on Tuesday , the President had promised to sign the bill into law “ in a few days ’ time .”

The National Assembly had passed the bill last year , altering sections 65, 106 , 131,177 of the Constitution to reduce the constitutional age requisition for president from 40 to 30; that of the governor from 35 to 30; senator from 35 to 30; House of Representatives membership from 30 to 25 and State House of Assembly membership from 30 to 25.
