2019: ‘not Too Young To Run’ Bill Scales Through 21 States Assemblies (names) by dre11(m): 6:47am On Feb 14
By Pamela Eboh 


Barely two months after the National Assembly transmitted a bill, tagged ‘not too young to run’ including 15 amendments already carried out on the 1999 Constitution ahead of the 2019 general election, no fewer than 21 states Houses of Assembly have passed the bill. The Ondo State House of Assembly blazed the trail as it was the first to pass the bill, followed by Adamawa, Benue, Kwara, and Nasarawa Houses of Assembly. Also, Enugu, Delta, Borno, Ekiti, Katsina, Yobe and Gombe assemblies had followed suit as they passed the bill last year December while Kogi and Kebbi Houses of Assembly passed the ‘not too young to run’ bill January this year.

Ebonyi, Jigawa, Bauchi, Kaduna, Ogun, Niger and Abia Houses of Assembly had also passed the bill this month
. Addressing journalists in Awka yesterday, the Anambra State coordinator of ‘not too young to run’ movement, Mr. Nonso Orakwe described an alleged refusal by the other fifteen Houses of Assembly to pass the bill as worrisome.

While calling on the lawmakers to do the needful in the interest of democracy, Orakwe explained that members of the movement were driven by compelling need to restructure the country’s political structure in order to address the deeply entrenched system of political exclusion and institute inclusive politics, transformative leadership and electoral competitiveness in the electoral process.

Orakwe said: “These states that have passed the amendment bill have been inaugurated into the ‘not too young to run Hall of Fame’ for voting in line with aspirations of the Nigerian people.

By this singular act, the 21 youth friendly states have made history and written their names in gold. “The passage of the bill is a demonstration of their commitment to the tenets of representative democracy. We commend them for fulfilling their promise to their constituents and the Nigerian youths, who will always remember them for showing leadership in promoting youth inclusion in democratic politics in Nigeria.”

Great move in the right direction, however, even if this is eventually implemented in a national scale, it alone will not help us improve our current situation. The poor attitude of the average nigerian to virtually everything that helps with the progress of a nation is the main problem and this has infected virtually every age category e.g zero respect for law and regulations, poor attitude to work, degrading rewards for labour, lack of respect for fellow citizens, watching influential criminals rob us of our hard work and even applauding them for selfish interests, zero respect of ethics and responsibilities e.t.c. Till our attitude changes, we ain't going nowhere.

As obasanjo,ibb,buhari etc get old their sons have to replace them,thus the bill.
It makes little difference to the average nigerian youth who by the age of 30 can bearly feed himself let alone run for govt,however this is our opportunity to seize power as they transit.

Nomination forms is not a government policy rather it's a party policy. The youths can form their own parties and handle nominations any how they deem fit.
