POLITICS: Age Qualification for Presidents, Governors & Senators to be 30yrs

Presently, to contest for the post of a president in Nigeria, one must be 40 years and above while to contest for a governor or senator, you have to be 35 years old or above and House of Representatives and state
Houses of Assembly is 25 years and above.
In a move to have more young people in government, a Bill seeking to reduce the age qualifications for interested candidates to contest for the positions of President, governor and senate in the country to 30 years yesterday passed second reading in the House of Representatives.
The sponsor of the bill, Tony Chinedu Nwulu representing Oshodi-Isolo 11 Federal Constituency of Lagos State, on platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Mr. Nwulu stated that countries like the United Kingdom parliament decided in 2006 to lower their age of candidacy from 21 to 18.
Guys, do you support the reduction bill?

@okey: I think this bill will bring more youths in government. it seems you have a contrary view

Why don't they debate about retirement age? What much do we expect from senile lawmakers who refuse to go because there is no age ceiling at d top
