Can One Be Too Old To Contest For Elective Positions? by bennynaza(m): 8:31am On Oct 18, 2017
Just as the constitution stipulates a certain age one must attain before he can contest for elective positions, would it not be sensible also to have an age ceiling, whereupon reaching, one can no longer contest.
Just like we have retirement age for some other public servants, judges, lecturers etc.
If you agree, what age do you suggest?
