Democracy Day: I will sign ‘Not Too Young to Run’ bill – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday promised to sign the “Not too young to run” bill in a few days’ time.

He made the promise in a nationwide broadcast in commemoration of the Democracy Day.

The bill seeks to reduce the minimum age requirement for elective positions in the country.

The Bill was passed by both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

In his broadcast, the President advised all and sundry to be law-abiding, as the country enters into another election season.

He said, “In a few days to come, I will be joined by many promising young Nigerians to sign into law the ‘Not too young to run’ bill.

“The upcoming months will usher us into another season of general elections. Let me use this opportunity to urge us all to conduct ourselves, our wards and our constituencies with the utmost sense of fairness, justice and peaceful co-existence such that we will have not only hitch-free elections but also a credible and violence-free process.”
