buhu - Not Too Young to Run Bill: Group Praises President Buhari

The Better Nigeria Movement, a Non-Governmental Organisation, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for assenting to the Not-Too Young-To-Run Bill.

Mr Sambo Abdulfatah, the National Coordinator of the group, told journalists in Port Harcourt on Monday that the new Act would improve the quality of leadership in the country.

According to him, the Act will pave way for intending youths to seek elective positions in their areas of political interest.

“ The Act could not have come at a better time than now that Nigerians are tired of having recycled leaders in power.

“ It is now time for our youths to take the bull by the horns and take charge of the country,’’ he said.

Abdulfatah also said the Act would ensure the exit from power of leaders who over the years had led the country with ideas that were outdated.

“If Nigeria must be great again, we need to inject young and vibrant people into the system to move the nation on the path of progress.

“In any given environment and in all conditions, sustaining heritage calls for the involvement of young people in leadership,’’ he said.

Abdulfatah, however, urged political parties to give equal opportunities to young people to run for political office without room for gender preferences.

He commended the National Assembly for the passage of the bill and called on the legislators to come up with more bills that would improve the lives of Nigerians.

    Fayemi is a crazy man,when he’s talking about disunity he should talk about his party and not another party,they say charity begins at home,cos at this stage APC is at a confuse stage,no future ambition and no comportment.All they do is eye service,they promise us change,we waited for change and we’ve not seen any change,PDP is the only party you find unity,transparency and candidates with good intentions,candidates who have promised and have fulfilled their promises.
