This is new age qualification to run for a political office as approved by the Nigerian Senate during the constitution review exercise yesterday.

Before now, a person must be at least 40 years of age to be elected President or Vice President, 35 to Be a Senator or State Governor, and 30 to be a Representative in parliament.

What about age for employment, because as it is now, those above 30years are no longer Nigerians as all the jobs are looking for people below 30.

shocked

This is not feasible.

Let's return to the status quo, I even suggest 60years for any political office.

At 30-35years the average Nigerian youth is unemployed, still sagging,
duping people via fraudulent ATM/BVN text messages.
Then using the proceeds to smoke shisha at Club Joker and carry oloshos from Rita Lori.

A step in the right direction but this will not change much in Nigeria. Nigerians should demand for better policies rather than dancing like malnourished dogs when facile scraps are thrown at them. As long as governors-cum-senators continue to receive double salaries and NASS budget remains hidden, corruption will continue to thrive. They even have the temerity to seek for immunity with the intention of camouflaging their evil deeds. Our mumu don do!

undecided. The youths are no better.

What SUG presidents are doing with their funding will support my assertions.

They should just sell the country and give every one his/her share tongue.

Re: The New Age Qualification To Run For A Political Office In Nigeria By Senate by PROPHETmichael: 10:49am On Jul 27, 2017
Reducing the age without banning certain age from contesting is exercise in futility because as long as the likes of OBJ, Atiku, etc keep contesting against the young ones, they will keep winning.

Keep deceiving yourselves there.

All members of political parties are now eligible to determine the ad-hoc delegates to elect candidates of parties in indirect primaries. The capacity of party executives to unduly influence or rig party primaries has been reasonably curtailed, if not totally removed.
Parties can no longer impose arbitrary nomination fees on political aspirants. The bill passed prescribes limits for each elective office as follows:
(a) N150, 000 for a ward councillorship aspirant in the FCT;
(b) N250, 000 for an area council chairmanship aspirant in the FCT;
(c) N500, 000 for a house of assembly aspirant;
(d) N1, 000, 000 for a house of representatives aspirant;
(e) N2, 000, 000 for a senatorial aspirant;
(f) N5, 000, 000) for a governorship aspirant; and
(g) N10, 000, 000) for a presidential aspirant.
