House Of Reps To Set Minimum Age Of 35 For Presidential Aspirants

A constitutional amendment proposal seeking a minimum age requirement of 35 years for future presidential aspirants has been submitted before the House of Representatives for consideration and adoption.


The proposal is part of a report of the fourth alteration of the 1999 Constitution laid before the House by the Lasun Yusuf- headed Constitution Review Committee on Thursday, last week.
It is the product of a coalition of 53 Civil Society Groups which presented it to the House as the “Not too young to run bill.”

The current minimum age required to run for presidential office in Nigeria is 40. The report also pushes for Nigerians from the age of 25 years to be allowed to seek election into the state assemblies and the House of Representatives, down from the current 30 years.
GUYS, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Hmmmm. Not a bad idea either . Just pray when they are elected, they shouldn't be misuse or abuse of power. #just_thinking_aloud
