Above is the new age qualification to run for a political office as approved by the Nigerian Senate during the constitution review exercise yesterday #NotTooYoungToRun.
86 Senators voted in support of the bill, 10 voted against it while 1 lawmaker abstained.
Contribution to the bill on Tuesday, July 25, 2017, Senator Dino Melaye noted that the future of Nigeria belongs to the youths.
Melaye noted that a bill seeking to stop older people from contesting for elective position should be introduced and passed.
For the bill to, however, take effect, it needs the endorsement of 24 State Assemblies and presidential assent.
