Today is the national day of action on NotTooYoungToRun Bill
Today, March 14, 2018 has been set aside by the conveners of NotTooYoungToRun initiative by YIAGA AFRICA, a youth-based non-governmental organization that promotes democratic governance, human rights and youth political participation.
This was contained in a press statement on the organisation’s website and below reads in part:
“The Not Too Young To Run movement is a movement of youth and civil society groups advocating for the reduction of age for running for elective offices to mainstream young men and women in electoral politics. Not Too Young To Run is Nigeria’s largest and most successful youth movement in recent times. The movement is driven by the compelling need to restructure the country’s political system to address the deeply entrenched system of political exclusion and institute inclusive politics, transformative leadership and electoral competitiveness in the electoral process”.
